International Shintaido Project 2020
Nov 4 – Nov 8 all-day

The International Shintaido Project (ISP) is pleased to announce the 2020 quadrennial international gasshuku will be held near Kansai, Japan and Lake Biwa.

Biwako 2020 international gasshuku
Theme: “和気藹々/Waki Aiai”.

和気藹々/Waki Aiai describes an atmosphere or a situation where a group of people gather and share joy, laughter, happiness and peace with open-hearts, and its vibrations spread into wider communities, fill and surround the earth and the universe.

和気/Waki literally means “energy of peace and harmony”, and “藹々/Aiai” describes trees and plants growing and spreading their leaves vibrantly. The word also implies the importance of “co-existence” and “inter-dependency”,not only amongst humans but also with animals, plants and the nature.

和気藹々/Waki Aiai reminds us of Fig. 9 of the famous picture “Jyugyuzu” (Ten Ox-herder Pictures].

The word “Ai” itself is a powerful “KOTODAMA/Word’s Spirit” in Japanese, which means Love, Encounter, Communion, Inter-dependence, Indigo, etc.… If you just make the sound “Ai Ai Ya-!”, you would naturally feel happier, lighter and open in spirit!
