Ki No Ishi Ho

REISEISHIN (The Universal Mind)
"Human beings are blessed with a mind that is directly connected to the mind of the Universe. This is known as Reiseishin.

The moon is clearly reflected in the water when the water is calm. In this same way when our mind and body are unified and calm, our Reiseishin manifests itself completely. Once this happens all suffering and wicked desires fall away, and the Universal Mind of love and protection for all things appears in us.

Let us Strive to realize Reiseishin."

-- Koichi Tohei Sensei

Being calm in daily life can often be the difference between performing well and performing poorly. In extreme situations, it can even be the difference between life and death.

Tohei Sensei, in an effort to teach us the realization of mind and body oneness, has developed a method of Ki Meditation. This form of meditation focuses our mind to the one point in the lower abdomen. When the one point is infinitely condensed by half, mind and body are unified and true calmness is obtained.

In this state, are we able to effectively manage whatever complexities the world may offer us.

Five Principles of Ki Meditation

  • You maintain a posture of mastery
  • You are letting go, releasing, and have a sense of freedom
  • You create an atmosphere of harmony
  • You are vividly aware of the spirit of life in the Universe itself
  • Therefore, you can feel the movement of the Ki of the Universe
