First Class


    Misogi means purification. From time to time it is good to cleanse oneself of any negativity or mental or physical stagnation. All Aiki practices are a type of Misogi. One special type of Misogi is to go into deep nature (Shizen) and chant or meditate under waterfalls. It is a wonderful experience of purification, renewal and rejuvenation.

    Participants at Shen Sen Dojo travel together to special places in the Blue Mountains and walk into the deep valley. There they do special preparatory exercises and then stand or sit together in the pools or under the waterfalls. This is deeply centring and awakens one’s deep life force.

    Often afterwards they will go to the local coffee shop and share their experience together . Misogi is great for health and strengthens one’s natural immunity. It also refreshes our senses through deep contact with the beauty of nature.

    Bokken Jo

    Learn the arts of enlightened action through the practise of Sword and Staff. Sword develops clarity, divineness, focus and effective action. It is related to the linear mind.

    Staff develops expanding energy, coordinated fluidity and creative response. It is related to the lateral mind. Together they make up what is called the cross Aiki. They bring out in one’s character and action the full expression of Yin and Yang and the principles of Fire (KA) and Water (MI).


    Kotodama means “the spirit in words”. As a group practice, it involves chanting the special “Aiki” (harmonising energy) sounds that activate various forms of Ki (Chi) in our body and life.

    Its vibrational effect dissolves blockage and moves stagnation. It awakens our spirit and life force leading to great health, emotional peace and spiritual power.

    Ken McLean has for over 40 years researched and developed the understanding and practice of special sounds and words that awaken one’s deep life force and spiritual energy.
