PATRICK A. GAUCHER, Fukushidoin, and BRIAN MIZERAK, Shidoin, to Rivertide Aikikai


Mind-Body-Earth Day

Mind-Body-Earth Day at Rivertide Aikikai will focus on the connections between our daily practice (be it aikido, yoga, farming, art or other) and how these practices help influence us to live in harmony with the world around us and contribute to the health of our own bodies/minds as well as the health of our environment.

We will have a number of national and local environmental organizations providing resources, as well as info about solar energy, local farm and artisan vendors, zombie apocalypse face painting, live music by Future350 Bossa, and food offerings by Pippi's Hot Dog Truck (including veggie and non-dog options...). There will be a variety of free and donation-requested classes/sessions in the dojo itself: intro to Aikido, Aikido freestyle and weapons demonstrations, a guided group meditation, as well as Reiki sessions and a yoga class.

We are hoping to begin building stronger connections between those of us in the area who share similar philosophies including mind-body-spirit integration and caring for our environment.
