Kai Chi Do Circle

Kai Chi Do, which translates to "Free Spirit Way", is a metaphysical workout that will inspire and energize you. It incorporates martial arts, aerobic yoga, and meditation in motion. First we move through The Depths, which utilizes Qigong postures to remove energetic blockages. Then we move through the 5 Elements connecting deeply to Source, Self, and Others. Kai Chi Do is done in circle to enhance connections and all movement can be modified. Just like the ancient martial arts, Kai Chi Do is also a living philosophy that can inform and enlighten your daily life. Every Kai Chi Do circle is offered up to end the suffering of all beings.

APRIL 2016 True Community: From Divergence to Allegiance

“Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things.”  - Albert Einstein

True community demands that each of the individuals become their most authentic self. This might require them to be a bit divergent for a time. It will most certainly ask them to heal, forgive and evolve. But when the time comes, a threshold will present itself that asks the individual if they will use their power for the greater good of us all, or only for the self. This is an inner attitude, for the actions may look the same. Therefore True Community can only be achieved through the rigorous self-initiations of inner honesty and integrity through group work, which provides the context and the content for a higher order of spiritual partnership and relationship. Allegience, to be healthy must be earned. It is from this place that a higher order of living is born. it is from this place that masters work together in mastery of love.

The day is here and now that I can die to a cause and remain alive in the cosmic fire of it's brighter light. Allowing it to burn away all that I am not. As I am continuing to die the little deaths, the little ego deaths to stay in the ring and rise triumphant into my immortal nature, not through martyrdom, but because I remain simply and forever embraced in a higher love, not for myself, but for us all. ― Rev. Renee Bledsoe

"Without devotion, action and knowledge are cold and dry and may even become shackles." - Mahatma Gandhi

I am free to be myself.

I have the courage and strength to claim my free will.
I align my will with the will of my higher self.
I submit to the initiations of my soul.
I magnetize my soul group to realize the highest levels of the mastery of love.
I am accountable to my soul.

I let go of what is no longer serving my soul's journey.
I practice freedom, by tending to my soul.
I tap into the river of my destiny.
I chose this life and I honor that choice.
My body is a vehicle for freedom and the actualization of my dreams.
I honor and respect the needs of my body.
My boundaries and clear communication create a safe space.
I am a force for good to be reckoned with.
I am a part of the eternal will to good.
The will of my mind, my body, and my soul are one with the will of God.
I am free to express from the deepest parts of my being.
I am free to fulfill my destiny.
I chose my destiny before I was born and have everything I need to activate my divine mission.
I free the dragon within and tame it's spirit to serve my higher calling.
I allow the phoenix within me to rise up out of the ashes.
I step into my highest calling.
I remember who and what I am.
I embrace right livelihood.
I am free to love to the depths and heights my soul can reach.

I am allegiant to the higher cause of love.
