AIKIDO, the Art of Peace, arose from the wellspring of warfare, mythology, and spirituality. Its matrix is the mist-shrouded mountains and forests, sacred pools, pathways, and places imbued with the energy and spirit of Great Nature. For almost 40 years, we have come together on the mountain to immerse ourselves in the teachings, arts, and practices of our ancestors. This year join us online to practice the  external and internal aspects and interconnectedness of Aikido, Taiji, Qigong, and Zen with five high-ranking Aikido instructors:

Frank McGouirk, 7th Dan, Shihan / Cyndy Hayashi, 7th Dan, Shihan / Danielle Smith, 7th Dan, Shihan / Michael Smith, 6th Dan / Teja Bell, 6th Dan, Zen Master

All proceeds go to the Mt Baldy Monks and Retreat Center

About Scholarships

Dharma teachings are considered precious and beyond any monetary value.  Therefore the Dharma cannot be sold or bought.

This is the ancient way of preserving the purity of the teachings and the authenticity of the lineage. Dharma teachings are given from the heart in the spirit of dana (literally, “generosity”) and may also be received in the spirit of gratitude – without the slightest consideration of reciprocity.

The Dharma is always without cost.  Production and other services to provide online teaching are not without cost.  Supporting the teacher, the teachings, and the process with dana is an ancient (and now modern) tradition and is unique to each person’s means.

To embody this spirit of generosity in modern times, we have created a sliding scale for our offerings to honor individual situations.  If the low end of the sliding scale is still not affordable, we invite you to request a scholarship for weekly classes by writing to QigongDharmaDana@gmail.com

We are happy to make this investment in supporting your practice, and we are confident that you, in turn, will honor your commitment to attend these sessions.

Please only request scholarships for sessions you can attend.

You will then be given the scholarship passcode to register for the session(s) you select.  Please send your request at least 48 hours before the session.  For special events and depth training, partial scholarships will also be considered by request.

Thank you for registering at the highest payment level that is appropriate and sustainable for you.

All communication is confidential.

Your registration supports and makes online teaching possible.

Support is unique to each person’s ability.

Nothing is expected; everything is appreciated.

Everyone is warmly and equally welcomed!

Thank you for your kind and generous support.

May all beings benefit!

With love and gratitude,

Teja
