MSMAS hold Annual Misogi to see in the New Year..

At Noon on January 1st, 'Misogi' was held for all at MSMAS Members & our friends at Honbu Dojo...


Annual Misogi at MSMAS is a shortened affair, with the religious connotations withdrawn, thus allowing anyone to participate for a short period of meditation to reflect on the year passed and to consider the year ahead.

Misogi (禊) in Japan is the Shinto practice of lustration, undertaken through exhaustive activities such as extended periods without sleep, breath training, standing under waterfalls or other methods. Water-misogi may be likened to dousing practices. Misogi is also used in some forms of Martial Arts, especially Aikido to prepare the mind for training and to learn how to develop your "hara", or centre. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba regularly used this form of meditation to complement his training and search for perfection.

Thanks to all who attended and to Kevin Hinton ShiDoin, for his Iai for us on the day...
