Side Stance Sanchin Pilgrimage

3 Sep

Final editing, voice-over and artwork is progressing on the soon-to-be-released Seienchin DVD. I know many of you that have purchased the Sanchin DVD and book are eagerly looking forward to the release.  As referred to in the Sanchin DVD and book, a primer to learning Seienchin is to perform either the four-direction Sanchin or Sanchin in a side stance. In fact, you should perform both variations of Sanchin as a means of facilitating learning Seienchin. This Sanchin pilgrimage is designed to facilitate your learning of Seienchin. For those of you that have purchased a Sanchin product, you may refer to the instruction letter to access the video of Sanchin in a side stance that is privately available.

Seienchin, Ringwood, NJ

Remember, the group dynamic is not fulfilled by all of us being geographically present, rather, it is fulfilled by each of us performing Sanchin in the proscribed manner.

Session Parameters:

Date: Monday, September 3rd  to Sunday, September 16th

Time: during your daily Sanchin performance

Location:  any location

Salient Points: As a means of preparing to learn Seienchin, perform Sanchin this week in a side stance.

The last requirement of this Sanchin Pilgrimage is to remain in an enraptured physical, spiritual and metaphysical state throughout the day by way of the concept of  “Zanshin” (the “remaining mind” which is discussed in my Sanchin DVD and Book).

Once again, you may wish to not only perform the Sanchin Pilgrimage as scheduled, but may also revisit the specific pilgrimage and allow Sanchin to unlock the cage imposed upon your by the drama of daily life. Do this as an integral part of your regular Sanchin practice.

In closing, I remain committed to educating you on the benefits of Sanchin and Seienchin as contained in my dynamic ideology of Jiriki Kata-Do (The Way Of Inner Salvation Through Kata),
