I, since very small, used plastic and literary creation to support my investigations in the world of the spirit; that was always a vital need to be able to express the inexpressible of the invisible world…

It was a long search, which progressively led at 28 years of age on a comprehension of the operation of human perception (pineal body, third eye, energies and frequencies…) consequently it became easier to put words on these things before unspeakable, about all that relates to the phantoms, the spirits guards, extraterrestrial humanoid felines, and so on…

  All that was very hard to accept, for myself and especially for my entourage… I then took refuge in artistic creation to be able to freely express myself… through this pilgrimage, I received many techniques of care, cures, healing , of multidimensional travels and so on… directly from the spirit; they all were then corroborated by Shamans, druids or healers whose universe liberally gratified me during this quest, thus profiting from their priceless experiments; today I feel dedicated to share those fruits and make them profitable to the greatest number…

With regard to painting, that was a total immersion during several years, from 20 to 28 years old, while spending most of my time in it; my technique was simple, I was guided by spirit and matter, discovering worlds, such as an explorer in the jungle of the psychic world. My leitmotivs, were borrowed from “Rimbaud” and “Picasso”.
 
For the first, “to find the place and the formula” and for the second, “to go quicker than the beauty”.

I produced hundreds of paintings with that in mind…, transitory works which were travelling through the impermanence of this world… Support of my reflection, the vibratory exercises of experiments of the various frequencies to learn the control from the rays…

J'ai depuis tout petit utilisé la création plastique et littéraire pour soutenir mes investigations dans le monde de l'esprit; cela fut toujours un besoin vital afin exprimer l’indicible du monde invisible...
Ce fut une longue quête , qui about it vers l'âge de 28 ans à une compréhension du fonctionnement de la perception humaine (glande pinéale, troisième oeil, énergies et fréquences...) dés lors cela devint plus facile de mettre des mots sur ces choses auparavant innommables ,pour tout ce qui concerne les fantômes,les esprits gardiens,les extra-terrestres félidés humanoïdes... 
Tout cela fut très dur à accepter, pour moi-même et surtout pour mon entourage...je me réfugiais alors dans la création artistique pour pouvoir m'exprimer librement... au travers de ce parcours, j'ai reçu de nombreuses techniques de soins ,de guérisons, de transes,de voyage multidimensionnels... directement de l'esprit; elles furent ensuite toutes corroborées par des chamans, des druides ou des guérisseurs dont l'univers m’a gratifié généreusement au cours de ce cheminement, bénéficiant ainsi de leurs expériences inestimables; aujourd'hui je me sens disposé à partager ces fruits et à en faire bénéficier le plus grand nombre...
En ce qui concerne la peinture, cela fut une totale immersion pendant plusieurs années, de 20 à 28 ans j'y passais la plupart de mon temps; ma technique était simple, je me laissais guider par l'esprit et la matière, découvrant des mondes tel un explorateur dans la jungle du monde psychique. Mes leitmotivs , je les ai empruntés à Rimbaud et Picasso. Pour le premier,"trouver le lieu et la formule" et pour le second,"aller plus vite que la beauté".
j'ai peint des centaines de tableaux avec cela en tête..., œuvres éphémères qu'elles furent, voyageant au travers de ce monde impermanent… Support de ma réflexion,des exercices vibratoires d'expérimentations des différentes fréquences pour apprendre la maîtrise des rayons ...

Opening Ouverture

I teach the tools so that the people can even look after themselves . But of course in case of emergency, I can always take care.
For that I use the rays of frequencies, a kind of natural echo-therapy… that regenerates tissues and cells filled with universal consciousness, the energy of Voidness.
  On the other hand, I like to give food advices based on the nutritherapy and Taoist approach;
as well as movements and practices of consciousness-raising body, eventually meditation in movement… inspired by Shintaido and Tao…
I also use, of course, gems and crystals, raw or as elixir, like certain medicinal herbs…
I practise also the Sey-taï massages (kind of shiatsu that one teaches with the Shintaido) and Taoist care with the gouacha (kind of comb made out from yak’s horn, to drive out the winds of the organization of the patient).

Currently I am formed with the practice of the sabre, which is a form of very developed meditation, which joins ultimately penmanship and painting…

What is Taoism?
 
To many people, a confusing aspect of Taoism is its very definition. Many religions will happily teach a Philosophy/Dogma which in reflection defines a person. Taoism flips this around. It starts by teaching a truth; “The Tao” is indefinable. It then follows up by teaching that each person can discover the Tao in their own terms. A teaching like this can be very hard to grasp when most people desire very concrete definitions in their own life.
 
A simply way to start learning the definition of Taoism is to start within yourself. Here are three easy starting steps to learning Taoism:
 
Don’t concentrate on the definition of the Tao (this will come later naturally)
Understand what Taoism really is. Taoism is more than just a “philosophy” or a “religion”. Taoism should be understood as being: A system of belief, attitudes and practices set towards the service and living to a person’s own nature.
The path of understanding Taoism is simply accepting yourself. Live life and discover who you are. Your nature is ever changing and is always the same. Don’t try to resolve the various contradictions in life, instead learn acceptance of your nature.
 

Practicing Taoism
 
Taoism teaches a person to flow with life. Over the years Taoism has become many things to many people. Hundreds of variations in Taoist practice exist. Some of these practices are philosophical in nature, others are religious. Taoism makes no distinction in applying labels to its own nature. This is important since as a person, we are each a blend of many truths. The truth taught in Taoism is to embrace life in actions that support you as a person.
 
Taoism teaches a person to live to their heart.
 
Here are some simple starting tips to help a person live as a Taoist.
 
Having a set of basic guidelines can be helpful. However realistically, guidelines don’t determine how to live; Instead Taoism teaches by living you will express your nature.My personal guidelines are the following:
With care, I aid those who are extended expressions of my nature.
Be true to myself
Connect to the world as I want to be treated.
Connect to those outside my nature with decisive action.
To those unwilling to accept me for my true nature, no action is required:
Just silently let them be themselves as I remain myself.
I own nothing; I am merely a passing custodian of items outside of my nature.
Discover a set of practices to aid keeping the mind, body and spirit engaged and strong. Remember practices should support your essence with the activities fitting the needs of the moment. Which means this is a shifting balance of activities relative to your needs. For example I practice martial arts to keep my body strong, yoga to make my body subtle, meditation to clear my mind, bike around simply to fly and lift my spirit. Poetry as a lens of examination. All these and more are my shifting practices to support my essence and in doing each, each helps me learn more about myself and the world.
Take time, relax and just explore and poke around. Taoism has no plans. Taoism is based upon following your gut feelings and trusting your instincts.
It’s within the pause of a breath… that each step of living becomes visible for your larger life to improve and follow upon.Smile, when needing to pick a possible next step. To smile is to open possibilities.Breathe when needing a break. Since to breathe is to be at one with yourself.Alternate the two and your path will become free and clear for an entire lifetime of wonder to explore.This may sound simple, but you would be surprise how many people cannot embrace this most basic aspect of Taoist practice! People think it cannot be that simple! Taoism truly is this simple. If you follow and practice step four, not only is that all one needs to fully embrace Taoism, but also anything becomes possible within this simple practice. However, most people need time letting go of expectations. So it’s also ok to dig deeper into Taoism. Taoism has many many levels of teachings on purpose to help people from all perspectives move smoothly in life.
 
I can summarize Taoism as simply as
 
Taoism is acceptance of your life.
Taoism is following your breath to find peace.
Taoism is opening up a smile to enable possibility.
 
If you embrace these three ideas, everything else follows in Taoism. Some people do start here. Others take a longer more colorful path. That’s fine also, since you get to experience more color in your life. No wrong path exists at the end, since it’s about experiencing life.
Practical Taoist Advice
 
At times the process of learning Taoism is also a process of healing. Take time to heal (don’t rush and hurt yourself more in the rushing). Taoism teaches to embrace your body with patience.
There are over 7 billion people in the world. This means over 7 billion paths to Taoism! Every person can teach us something.
Sometimes you need quietness; it’s ok to take time off to only hear yourself and not the noise of civilization at times.
People expect and think that the goal of life is perfection… it’s not… you should desire for being good at something and to embrace the various little imperfections… that end up actually being defining characteristics of each of us. The little bits of imperfection we each have are elements of chaos that give each person individuality and distinction! Without our little flaws we wouldn’t be individuals at all! Taoism teaches us how to accept both the best and worse parts of our life.
Taoism teaches a person to drop expectations. The more expectations you have for your life, the less you will become. A Taoist lives life without expectations, living in the here and now fully. Since most people need a few expectations especially when dealing with important future experiences. Here is a trick. Create only a single expectation at a time for that future experience. For example: An expectation you will smile or have some fun. Thats it! Don’t place any learning or changing into your expectation. If you do, this actually plants the seed for the opposite to occur, By creating a single simple expectation such as smiling, this then becomes something you can always fulfill since you can empower that action to happen. Any expectation more complicated or relying on something outside of yourself, just sets up the future to not meeting your needs.Dropping expectation is very very important within Taoism.
Lather, Rinse and Repeat, and then toss the instructions away to do what is right for yourself… This is Taoism at the very elemental level, so be open, experiment and embrace what works for you. Taoism as a tradition has teachers who work with students on an individual basis. In the end no guide or Master can be right for everyone. For this reason, we are always our own best teacher. Give yourself credit and patience to be such a teacher to your own life.
 
Explore Your Essence
 
First: Learn how to trust your own intuition.
 
Second: Let go of judgments that hold you back.
 
Third: Remove conflict and anger from your relationships.
 
Fourth: Be kind to yourself and pace your life to match your essence.

A warrior's fate
Budō for the modern age
 
Hiroyuki Aoki’s spiritual and artistic aspirations were not satisfied by karate as it existed in the 1960s. Striving for beauty and peace, he was searching for ‘both soft and expansive movement, spreading out to the ends of the earth – and power which could be used comfortably without turning against nature or the body.’[2]
 
While studying karate under Shigeru Egami, he created his own research group which, as well as including karate practitioners, included others who had abandoned it as being too severe and unsparing, and also people with physical limitations. Then in 1964 he reached his goal of discovering a way of moving the body in a more natural, beautiful and effective manner. Yet he believed it might have taken a beginner 20 years of study to achieve this kind of movement. If it were to spearhead the new culture that he aspired for, Aoki realised that he needed system that could be learned relatively easily. He wanted to create an entire martial art that would convince the public at large – but one capable of revitalising both the body and the spirit, giving energy, refreshment and the hope of living a more colourful life, of restoring the soul day by day.[3]
 
Aoki has said that he wanted to bring martial arts to the same level of attainment as the works of great Western artists such as Beethoven, Van Gogh or Dostoyevsky, or the American writers he admired, notably Henry Miller, Jackson Pollock or Walt Whitman.
Rakutenkai (楽天会)
 
To this end, on 23 September 1965, he collected an informal group around him which he called ‘Rakutenkai’, which had as its aim to pursue truth in daily life, acquire perfect liberty, live within the light of liberty, and become the light of the world. The only requirement was that members should practise with the group at least twice a year; among its members were active high-ranking martial artists, others who had given up their practice, women, children, old people and people with physical disabilities. Aoki wanted even the least strong people to be able to enjoy the fruits of his study even though the traditional processes of the martial arts tended to be selective and exclusive. From his own experience and careful study of the texts, Aoki believed that anyone, if properly supported, could reveal him- or herself as a ‘living treasure’. So he set the group five rules:
 
Stick to your own morality
Never forget your original self
Never judge others
Love your neighbour as yourself
-
 
(the last was left blank, to be filled in by each person according to their own beliefs).[4]
 
From this group he chose a team of around 30 instructors to conduct deep research into technique. From their experimental practice, Hiroyuki Aoki selected certain movements and techniques, and introduced them into his new system. Three fundamental kata emerged during this period: Tenshingoso (which Aoki had created by April 1966), Eiko (which the Rakutenkai discovered during a late-night practice on 1 December 1966; and Hikari (see below). In 1970 he set up his own school, Sogobudo (holistic martial art) Renmei, to revive traditional Budō by developing and teaching Shintaido. After Rakutenkai had been disbanded a number of Aoki's leading practitioners and teachers,who had helped him create Shintaido, left the group. Among these were Master Egamis son Masatake Egami, Kato Tomorori, Hokari Shikoh and his brother, Ito Juguro, Toshima Shigeiko and Chieko Kato. With this passing much of the creative energy left the Shintaido organisation and practice.
Claimed Benefits
 
Shintaido assumes that the challenges facing modern people are more rooted in emotional and psychological matters than physical. Shintaido offers body movements that aim to build resources to live better and develop a new 'way of being' that is more intuitive, aware, and less tense; this stems from the belief that the freer the body, the more effective its movements can be.
 
The hope of founder Hiroyuki Aoki was to create a martial art that could reach the level of great art.[5] so beauty and fluidity are essential aspects. The practice of Shintaido brings with it a bodily awareness and receptivity to the many messages the body transmits so that it can be used as a tool to explore the individual's inner state of being, evolution, limitations and resources. The partner exercises aim to provide an opportunity to discover and develop the ability to communicate and affirm oneself. The dojo (道場, practice space) is a place in which to explore this concept in safety.
Basic Forms
 
Every Shintaido practice begins with warming-up exercises designed to soften and extend the body until it can move naturally, without the tensions of everyday life. This may be followed by a period of more vigorous exercises, designed to open of the body. These exercises, like everything in Shintaido, are based on effective martial arts technique.
 
Most of these exercises can be practised alone, with a single partner or in a group; they can be performed dynamically, formally or slowly and meditatively. Some require use of the voice.
Tenshingoso (天真五相)
 
Tenshingoso (five expressions of cosmic truth) is one of the essential forms (or kata, 型) of Shintaido. Its significance can vary depending on the context in which it is performed. As a martial technique, it is a distillation of all the principal techniques (attacks, cuts and throws) of budō. As an artistic symbol, it is a metaphor of the life-cycle, from birth to death. As a technique of personal development, it is an encyclopedia of meditation positions (mudras).[6]
Eiko (栄光)
 
Adapted from the art of swordsmanship, Eiko (glory) is a hymn to the glory of the human adventure, taking the practitioner between earth and heaven, ideal and reality. If done with conviction, it can bring practitioners out of their ‘small world’ and plunge them into a whirl of new sensations. To do Eiko is open up the space around and within oneself; with a partner, it develops a sense of timing, concentration and gives a chance to go far beyond one’s normal limits.
Hikari (光)
 
Hikari (playing with light), though virtually indescribable, can be considered Shintaido’s artistic masterpiece. It is a unique form of personal expression: its movements are totally free, so it has no form, and cannot be taught.[7]
 
In Wakame taiso (わかめ体操, seaweed exercise) two people, face to face, alternately take the role of the seaweed and the ocean. The seaweed, rooted on the seabed, waves sinuously in response to the gentle touch of the ocean around it. This exercise can quickly induce a state of deep intensity. It also helps develop a sensitivity to attack and allows a fluid, centred response.
Taimyo (大妙)
 
The gentlest and most recent of the Shintaido kata, Taimyo (great mystery) was developed to allow older, less robust people or pregnant women to build up their strength and experience the beauty of Shintaido practice. A long and gentle kata, it contains elements of many aspects of Shintaido practice, has a therapeutic dimension, and builds a state of deep meditation.
From relaxation and stretching to openness and freedom
 
The first objective of Shintaido is to make the body and mind completely relaxed, fluid and flexible. Next it develops large movements through which we can express our vital energy and talents. Many exercises open the body, especially the hips, the stomach, chest and hands. Practitioners aim to develop an open spirit with which to approach life at large, and other people. Kumite (組み手, partner practices) allow us to test the effectiveness of the techniques we have learned: an open body, large movements and clear intention make the techniques effective. There is no competition. Each participant is encouraged to express him or herself freely and to discover his or her potential in a spirit of cooperation with, respect for and confidence in one another. A kumite may begin with a formal movement but is transformed progressively into a kind of free dance between two partners.[8]
