The Westminster dojo will be open for a full schedule of classes and Sokushin no Gyo on Saturday 2/4/12. If you feel that it is safe for you and your vehicle to travel you are welcome to attend. Please drive with active awareness and leave yourself extra time to travel.
Everyone who is currently participating in Ki training and is in good health is welcome to attend. Sen Shin No Gyo is a Ki training to coordinate mind and body, and a symbolic and actual practice to throw away all things past and present in order to start out the new year clean and fresh. Please come with a positive attitude and plus Ki.
We will start with bell ringing ( Soku Shin No Gyo ) on the mat in the Boulder dojo. Then we will carpool quietly to Ebin G. Fine Park for training in the water ( Sen Shin No Gyo ). Afterwards we will return to the dojo to complete our training with more bell ringing. It is a tradition to go out for breakfast afterwards.
ITEMS YOU WILL NEED
Bathing Suit worn under your Keiko-gi onto the mat
Protective footwear which you will wear into the river (flip flops are not recommended)
A bucket and a big bowl that fits inside the bucket (If the weather is dangerously cold we will do an alternate form of Sen Shin No Gyo)
Underclothes (to put on under your Keiko-gi after exiting the water)
