We are excited and delighted that Charles Colten Sensei (5th Dan) will return to NOLA Aikido on SundaySeptember 6th, 2020 for his annual autumn seminar from 12:00-1:30pm CDT (1:00-2:30 EDT and 19:00-20:30 CET.)  Of course, this year, we will gather virtually, via Zoom,

Sign up today to reserve your spot.

This year’s theme will be “Resilience”

How can we build, nourish, and nurture our ability to bounce back, find new opportunities, and ultimately thrive when we are faced with difficult obstacles, adversity, and rapidly changing environments?

The seminar is by donation, and all proceeds will go to support Aikido in the Schools and NOLA Aikido as we continue to bring this practice and aiki-medicine into the world.

Sliding scale: $15-35

Donate via Paypal: paypal.me/nolaaikido.

(If that’s too much, pay whatever feels comfortable. If you’re feeling a financial squeeze just come to class.)

Colten Sensei approaches the topic of resilience as part of his “Teaching for Mastery” Series, which draws upon neuroscience research, positive psychology, patterns found in nature, and best practices in pedagogy. He naturally and seamlessly connects this body of research with Aikido principles and practices.

Come join us for an engaging, interactive, one-and-a-half hour investigation into Resilience. Come prepared to move, learn, and practice concrete “takeaway” methods for boosting your individual and community resilience.

Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing in which you can move, and bring a pen and notepad.

Aikidoists, somatic artists, teachers, and learners of all styles, affiliations, and levels of experience are warmly welcome…so please feel free to share this information with your networks of peeps.

We look forward to seeing you in our home dojos and on the virtual mat!
