Example text

Self-Transformation The path of transformation in aikidô is described by Morihei Ueshiba as a process of “purification of body and mind”. The word in Japanese is misogi, which means literally: “the art of purifying our bodies”. The bodies referred to here, are both the physical boies and the “subtle bodies” (the etheric, astral/emotional, mental etc. body). In Shintoism, the native Japanese religion, the purification is accomplished by means of a variety of different rituals and exercises designed to clean the atmosphere and evoke “the vibration of the soul” (furi-tama).

It also constitutes personal space and its borders, a topic, I want to turn to now, because of its direct relevance for aikidô and interpersonal conflicts. Everyone has personal space.

Two people who are in interaction always assume positions of mutually defined distance from one another.

That is, the perception of emotion of a caregiver produces a resonant emotional state in the child, called affective resonance. The early interactions between mother and child are non-verbal (via touch, voice, gaze, taste, smell). Thus, these interactions take place in a sensory-tonic field to regulate the internal, physiological and 32 affective state of the baby. This sensory-tonic field is constituted and modulated by both, mother and infant (on the infants side via affect-motor behavior → chapter 1).
