My introduction and participation note towards this seminar week:

“Aikido contains a vision that supports our growth in different ways on different levels. Every time we practice it gives us the opportunity to connect body, mind, heart and soul. We each possess the ability to tune inward to notice what our urge to grow, heal and connect is. We start where we are; therefore we need to see first what is here in our being.

Aikido is for me a path of authenticity. From the start my interest was to discover and connect with my true self (Self). This helps me to return again and again to the place of ‘home’ within myself. There is something that calls, even in times when I feel I am in the midst of turbulance and conflict. It is a life force that can not be denied. To awaken to this force, and to allow ourselves to be humble and vulnerable, helps us to see the other person with compassion and care. With true interest we want to connect and discover the potential of harmony and unity. In all of this our mind function is to support; it has the potential to discriminate and reflect,  in service of the body,heart and soul.
As an aikido instructor I hope to help and guide some one to find their true path. It is an honour to explore together, respecting the place where a person is in their interest. I am always curious what brings one to the aikido mat, every time. This is a question I ask myself too. And sometimes there is no mental answer, which is fine. If there is no direction forward there is at least something right now to connect with, and to start from.

This Summer we will be together with a lot of people from all over the world. Regardless of our backgrounds we seem to want to come together, and that is a wonderful thing to look forward to. It definitely makes me curious and excited to me you all.
With gratitude,
Carolina van Haperen”
