For over 50 years, Paul has used Aikido as his primary research laboratory for studying the self in movement — however you do not have to be a martial artist to benefit from this practice. In this dojo, you will be guided in applying new ways of learning and teaching in activities from washing dishes, sports, playing an instrument, or public speaking to areas such as relaxation, stress reduction, conflict management, and trauma recovery. If you are a martial artist (of any style or lineage) you will discover ways of deepening and strengthening your practice.

More event information

By combining exercises in body awareness, flow, power and compassion with analytic empirical thinking, Paul has developed rapid and effective ways of bringing elements of martial arts such as centering, focusing, fighting spirit, and resilience into areas such as music, sports,  trauma recovery, and peacemaking. 

People usually think that telling the story of their pain is necessary for resolving it. However, if they tell the story before they learned effective methods of self-regulation, they replay the painful past in their body, which amounts to practicing being a victim. By identifying emotions as actions people do in the body (rather than being words and thoughts), Paul helps people examine and test these actions as strategies for staying safe. By creating better means of verbal and physical self-protection, people that they can in the present actually fight and win against what defeated them in the past. They can overcome learned powerlessness and give up coping strategies based on that self-identity. This may be enough for any given client, and it also serves as a foundation for the important work done by the more feeling-oriented modalities.
