Focus: Art of Self
Intent: Exploring Personal Potential

Art of Self is a profound step on the Nia Journey. It is the belt that celebrates not just you, but your advanced potential. It's about stepping even further, out of your excellence and into your genius. Being in genius, in the zone, means letting go. It is expressed in beauty, power, and wisdom of spirit. It sets you free into Sacred Movement. It moves you further into brilliance. It is a movement dedicated to a single purpose and person: you.

The desire for first degree is "more". More personal knowing, and more about how to live in a world of pleasure, purpose, and freedom. Plato wrote that, "all knowledge is already within us, no one really teaches us anything new." In First Degree Black Belt we remind each other of the archetypal principles of our nature, our body, and how our spirit knows more, but we have forgotten.

The origins of First Degree Black Belt comes from over thirty years of body-mind movement exploration. It takes you through Nia's White, Blue, Brown and Black Belt, further into Aikido and Sacred Geometry, all of which have dramatically impacted Nia. This is the belt that takes you beyond your wildest dreams.

How it works:

The dan is a ranking system, a Japanese mark of level used in martial arts that was created by Kanō Jigorō (1860–1938) in 1883. The word dan literally means "step" or "stage," and is commonly equated with a—degree.

This training gives you 13 tools called "vital factors," influenced by the medical term "vital sign." Each "vital factor" provides an energetic foundation to stretch and expand your relationship with Nia's 39 principles, and Nia TAS's; triadic affirmation spells. Each is a lesson to explore you and the expression of Nia in her finest form, which has always been more than physical. Gracing this training is a technique I believe contributes to the champion of all personal greatness: the beginners mind.

What Does Beginning Mean to You?

Beginner implies you know nothing. You are empty. It means you consciously forget what you know from the past. You don't anticipate the future, you have nothing. You are simply here, not preoccupied with yesterday, tomorrow, or even today.

Mind refers to the part of you that directs your thinking, actions and choices.

I've crafted this salient training with the concept of Omoto, "the great origin," and with respect to the "inquisitive" body-mind-emotion-spirit you are.

Omoto translated means, "great origin". A new religious sect (1871-1947), Omato was founded by an illiterate, but enlightened woman named Nao Deguchi. Omato suppressed by the Japanese government, destroying their property, and imprisoning Nao Deguchi. Many people consider the influence of the Omoto religion to be the philosophical and spiritual foundation of Aikido, which is why I was drawn to Omato as a concept of "great origin."

My Invitation To Start At The Beginning

I invite you to forget what you know. To trust in your eagerness to learn, and from start-to-finish, enter into beginner's mind. Let's play.

Ask yourself the question, "What does great origin mean to me?" I arrived to the understanding that to me, "great origin" refers to the beginning, the moment of creation when I am fully present and in the moment of now. Be here, with me, now.

Love,
