Aikido Laboratory 2016 - Speaking Aikido: An Intro
Speaking Aikido: An Introduction to Compassionate Communication Sharon Seymour Sensei, 4th Dan, Chief instructor of Katsujinken Dojo. In 2009, I began studying Marshall Rosenberg's practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). I had noticed myself, on the mat, speaking and thinking in ways that did not reflect the commitment to peace that O Sensei asks of us. NVC is "spoken Aikido." It has become a vital part of my Aikido training, and I look forward to sharing it with you. I am confident you will find that NVC principles can support and inform you triaining.
