【募集スタート】オンラインWS「創造と内省」

「一年の計は元旦にあり」ははじまりの大切さを示します。「終わりよければ全てよし」は〆の大切さを示します。そして、私たちは毎日真新しい日を迎えています。そこに、昨日と同じ要素があることが、奇跡的です。

1日の中で、はじまりは朝です。〆は夜です。胃が生まれ変わるサイクルは5日、心臓が生まれ変わるサイクルは22日とも言われ、身体は常に前を向いて、新しい方へ進んでいます。

ところが、頭や心はその足を引っ張ります。昨日と同じ要素がある奇跡を愛してやまないのでしょうか。すると、明日を重荷に感じたり、優先順位をあやまったり、我慢はしても努力しない選択をしたり、必死で人間性を低めにかかります。

「清い一年」は、特に今年、誰にとっても大切なベンチマークになるでしょうが、どうやって「清い一年」を作っていくかは、毎日の朝と夜にかかっています。その重要な朝と夜に取り掛かるのが、今回のワークショップです。

There Is The Sun and Wind Just Outside, But It Feels Far Away.

The effect of PM2.5 is serious in western Japan. When I moved to Kyoto, the spring haze on the mountains was so beautiful. Japanese bush warblers sang in operatic voices. I was usually wrenched from sleep by their loud voices before the alarm clock went on.

But only after five years, sometimes I cannot see the mountains because of PM2.5. Japanese bush warblers sing in smaller voices than before as if they have smaller lungs. Now, I strain to hear their voices. I guess that they naturally suppress their breathing to save their body from dirty air.I involuntarily keep my laundry inside. And I change how and when I do the laundry. It disrupted my daily habits like a domino effect. There is the sun and wind just outside, but it feels far away.

When the level of PM2.5 is low, usually it means rain or snow. But amazingly, these last two days have had a low level of PM2.5 and almost always sunny. I could happily put my futon outside.  I could wash my big blankets, carpets and many other things because the sun and wind can make it dry quickly. I was so happy.

I knew that some plants like sansevieria can decontaminate chemicals such as formaldehyde. And I found on Google, some curtains with similar functions. I have a big Blueair, which is a good, famous air purifier, in my room. I know they work. But it is not enough for all livings to inhale and exhale healthily.

We definitely need clean air. And for that we need to shift our lifestyle to one which is good for all plants and animals. Because none of us can live without breathing. This year I have supported some activities to clean up air. We must act more.

【開催報告】オンラインWS「清い一年」

2023年も、1/12が幕を閉じました。この1ヶ月の間に、随分と多くの災害や人間社会の災厄がありました。その総量が、5年前や10年前と比べ、何倍にも増加していると認識していますか?形を変えた戦国時代です。

そのため、今年は今後5年を見据えて作ったワークショップを、三部作でリリースしており、このワークショップはその第一弾に当たります。それでは、頂いた感想をシェアします。

「(今の身体は)

〇鎖骨周りのこわばりがなくなった
〇肩の可動域が広がり、指先の不快感がなくなった
〇胃の周りや気道、身体の空間が感じられるようになった
〇骨盤が正しい位置に戻り、周りの筋肉からの引っ張られる感じがなくなった

(今の心は)

〇とても落ち着いている
〇自分がわからない、隠したい、目を背けたいことを直接見て、自分で確認できてうれしい
〇自分がどうすべきか、何をやるか、この範囲で何をしたらいいかがわかり、心が軽くなった
〇迷っていたところにライトを渡されて、これを使っていろいろと工夫できることが分かった。この1週間をはじめこれから1年間、どうやって工夫し行動し過ごしていけるか楽しみ

(人生にとって一番大切なことは)

〇できることを探して、組み合わせを工夫する
〇並列化しない
〇自分を偽らない
〇自分を知り、自分の限界を知る

自分の良いところも隠したいところも見たうえで、この一年を具体的にどのように過ごすか指針を見出すことができました。これから1日、1週間、1か月、1年と、じっくり取り組んでいきます。

コーチングともFAPとも違う、深く自分が耕されていく時間を過ごせてとても嬉しいです。ありがとうございました。」

「(今の身体は)少しコンパクトにまとまった感じ。ワークショップの前に身体を動かしていたのでワークショップ終了後で少し冷えてきましたが、頭の中でどうなっていくかイメージ出来たことで、自分のためにやることがわかり、しっかり、くっきり、とした感覚になりました。

(今の心は)初めのわくわくする感じから、終了時には本当に出来るだろうか…、とそわそわする感じになりました。でも、一度にやるわけではない、一つずつ順番にやっていけばいいとアドバイスを受けたので、ほっとしています。早速今日から少しずつ積み重ねていこうと思っています。

(人生にとって一番大切なことは)空間の保ち方。ただなんとなく、時間の流れに任せて、目をつぶったままになってしまうことが多くあるので、新たな視点で空間を眺めて再選択したいと思いました。

今の私にとって必要なことを、提供していただき感謝します。ありがとうございました。」

(ピラティス講師、48歳、女性)

なお、このワークショップを実際に行ってみて、2023/6/15まで開催リクエストを受けた方が、この乱世において、多くの方の安全に貢献できるだろうと、方針を変更しました。

今後、開催リクエストを受けて開催する場合は、22,000円/2時間30分のオンライン・ワークショップとして、お届けします。詳細は、こちらからご確認の上、気軽にお問い合わせください。

We Had Such A Beauty Way The Same As Wolves

Few weeks ago, I saw a documentary of wolves “Living with Wolves”.  Three years ago,a photo of extinct wolves by human activities caught my heart. Since then, wolves has been a special exisistence for me. I respect them and admire them. Their existence sometimes encourage me to live on this dirty gray Earth which is totally far away from blue planet as this photo by Japan Meterological Agency’s Himawari-8 satelite. Blue planet is our ideal and unfact vision of the Earth.

true earth color
quote from: dailymail.co.uk

“Living with Wolves” shows us how we can build a healthy relationship between wolves and us. Also this reminds us to remeber a natural life rythm like living with sunrise and sleeping with sunset. Artificial separation creates lots of diseases, fears and anxiety. It pushes us to forget our humanity. We need to remember that who we are ,as a part of the Earth.

Let’s change our lifestyle to the one which does not disturb Earth rhythm. Let’s have some clear distance from anthropocentric living way. When we centered our humanity in our life, naturally we will be back to the life which harmonize with the Earth and other living things including wolves.

We humans also have such a beauty way the same as wolves in this documentay. We need to go back to be human from chunk of greed.

The World Changed from a Sphere to Pixels.

When I was a child, I needed a camera to take photos, I needed a CD player to listen to music, I needed a ruler to know the length of something . Each of them exists for one purpose. So we needed to switch our consciousness to go to the next thing without missing a beat. It helped us to decide whether we liked something or not rather than whether we could make something or not.

Now I need only one device like an iPhone to take photos, listen to music and measure. I realized that the feeling that I could do many thiings at once with my hands deprived me of aliveness or life force. Because everything starts to be treated as data. So the world changed from a sphere to pixels. It is like eating chicken soup in separate parts, like carrots first and chicken broth second. In that way, I don’t savor chicken soup in a harmonized way. It is the same as only seeing broken up pixels instead of seeing one picture.

One day I determined to graduate from the pixelated world. For example, I will listen to music as music not data. I want to enjoy music as a whole not as disassembled parts. At least when I was a child, many musicians paid attention to not only to the music but also to the jacket or liner. So I could imagine its music from the liner notes and its work consistently had a clear intention. And feeling the musician’s intention sometimes helped me to go forward. But only streaming digitized music cannot make it.

So I bought a CD player and stopped copying music from a CD to iTunes. Each time I listen to music, I feel like bowing to that musician. They poured their passion into the music, so it is worth bowing to. This also helps me to take back dignity in my whole life. I received conveniences from data, but it is not my future, it is my past.

You Have to Let Go of Something to Get IT

I have worn outfits by Petit Bateau of France often for over 20 years. Their philosophy is to never be out of fashion. Their lines are always simple, precise and beautiful. They keep their shape well despite repeated cleaning.

When I was in my early twenties, I poured my energy into being in better shape. I endured 90 minute workouts three days in a week. I tolerated drinking strawberry-flavored protein drinks, too. I loved to dressed down in a simple t-shirt and skinny jeans paired with stiletto pumps. I tried to fit into that kind of style.

And I found out that it was impossible to wear “12 ans” size shirts. I wore a Japanese size 7 or 9. But “12 ans” was too small for me. To wear “12 ans”, I would have needed to compress my skeleton.

Many years passed after that and I forgot all about it. I loved my natural body. I discovered yoga and Pilates were suitable for my body. I learned that I didn’t need to control my body based on my preconceptions. I just started to love who I was and to love my body. I started to respect my body.

Two years ago, I learned how to take back subtlety in my body while practicing shamanic training. I have continued my efforts since then. Last autumn, I started to feel that “14 ans” was too big for me. This winter I really felt that they were baggy. Finally, I was determined to wear “12ans” which had been too small for me.

But amazingly I could fit into it and it was the right size. Now I never hanker after wearing a small size like “12 ans.” But now “12 ans” is my size, as if my subconscious never give up fulfilling my wishes.

Sometimes we say, you have to let go of something to get it. It happened to me for some reason. Anyway, I have a “12 ans” body now.

Who Did You Aspire To Be Like?

When you were a child, who did you aspire to be like?

I remember at least two people who I aspired to be like.  One was Kukai. He lived between the 8th and 9th Centuries during the Nara and Heian Period. Another one was Seishonagon. She lived between the 10th and 11th Centuries, also during the Heian Period.  In this post, I will focus on the fomer one.

According to many history books, Kukai was talented, worldly, strategic and eccentric. He is known as the originator of Shingon Buddhism. He is also known as one of the three best Japanese calligraphers. I learned in elementary school that he repaired a big reservoir.

His name means sky and sea. When he reached enlightenment in his twenties, there was only sky and sea around him. So he decided to name himself Kukai.

Kukai was born in Kagawa Prefecture and moved to Kyoto to go to a university. Amazingly, there was a university system which was similar to the current university system. During this time he lived and studied near my current home. When I moved to current my home, I had forgotten this fact. But now I remember it, and that made me wonder.

When he was thirty, he was chosen as an envoy to China.  Chinese records say that his Chinese was very fluent. It’s a mystery why he was chosen to be an envoy.  But it reveals that he was a strategic and eccentric person.

When I was an elementary school student, I did not know why I aspired to be like him. But now I know.  His faces,  worldly, strategic and eccentric, are my faces, too. I unconsciously knew it, so I aspired to be like him. Now he often inspires me. His life give me some hints on how I should live.

Who inspires you?
