In this excerpt from an interview with Eagle de Botton, Jessica Roemischer speaks about the approach she uses to piano duet improvisation. She describes how, in duet at the piano, she creates for another human being an experience of trust and discovery which transcends any limitation or self-doubt. Jessica places this experience in an evolutionary context, and reveals why it has significance because it frees us from the fear which has characterized the span of our individual and collective human history.

What ever you do, it is always a good idea to stay connected and be in tough with the ground of all being. So if you really want to create a better future...Start with meditation!
This is who we REALLY always already, are.
Meditation, Strength Training, and eventually every step you make is in your quest to become what we are here for; We are here for excellence, and it is also, as McNamara frame in "Strength to Awaken", - "Your greatest liberation conducted into your greatest most unique service, or contribution."
Here is the missing discussion; How to engage training, engage resistance and practice to participate with the immediacy of what is now.
Eagle de Botton talks with Dharma Teacher and Aikido Sensei Miles Kessler about meditation, and the possible hindrances to the practice of meditation.
It is a good idea to know, and be aware of the egos tendency to distract the self from any activities that threatens its control over the self. Meditation enables us to see beyond the small ego, and it is very common to experience all kinds of distractions "invented" by the small ego, fighting for its survival…

Meditation makes it possible for us to experience the deepest part of ourselves. Only then we are able to engage in life beyond the narcissistic self, and be fully functional human beings, creating a better future for us all. (As add-on "side effects", meditation is also known, and proved scientifically, to improve our mental and physical health, and make us feel a lot happier...:).
So, find yourself a quit place, sit in a comfortable position, and... follow the instructions.

Here is a beautiful awakenedTV video clip, for The Awakened Campaign (TAC.fm). The clip was taken after the guided Mindfulness meditation with Aikido Sensei Miles Kessler.
If you want to develop and change, Meditation is an essential practice. It enable us to see through the ego, and engage with life from a position of freedom, beyond the anarchistic self. We are then able to experience who we are at the deepest level of our being, and see the bigger picture and the inherent goodness of life. Meditation provides us with that transcendental knowledge, a knowledge that is a precondition to being mindful.
We know that already, don't we?! :-)

"The Evolution of Response" by Miles Kessler Sensei, the founder and director of Integral Dojo in Tel Aviv, Israel. An Evolutionary Aikido and Dharma Teacher, and a dear spiritual friend.
Miles spent a few hours in Zurich, on his way to teach in a Europe. It was a beautiful spring day, and we took a walk by the lake. I asked Miles to talk a little about Aikido. I had no idea... Aikido is indeed a Martial Art, just like I already knew, but it is also a lot more.
In Aikido, you shift your perspective to where you are actually at one with the other person. Aikido happens in relationship. It is about Awakened Relationship, eventually creating an awake and aware system. A system with its own intelligence. It is like awakened inspired musical jam session, creating an inter subjective space...

Aikido Sensei, Miles Kessler, is a Dharma Teacher, and the director of the Integral Dojo, Tel-Aviv. Miles is also a good spiritual friend. On his latest teaching tour, he visited Zurich, and I was lucky to enjoy a short walk with him, on a sunny afternoon...
We were talking about life, evolution, the future, spiritual practice, music, and of course Aikido. Someone happened to have had an awakenedTV video camera... :) I will share it all!
This video clip is an excerpt of our conversation. Miles explain the need to integrate levels of development. Not only accept but embrace and integrate. As an example he ask me to tell him about my feeling when going to a synagog.
Spring 2012 - My spiritual friend Aikido Sensei Miles Kessler, the director of the new Tel Aviv Integral Dojo, came to Switzerland for a short teaching tour. We took a walk by the lake of Zurich enjoying the beautiful day, talking about Integral, the future of humanity, and the Integral Dojo in Tel Aviv. We decided to video for awakenedTV a short introduction to Aikido.
So, me and Miles got ready for the talk, the camera was rolling, and... my son Reuven was passing by the lake, and joined us for a few minutes. A few days before, both of my sons came back from a 5 month study in Israel. Both took the time to visit Integral Dojo activities in Tel Aviv.
The conversation with Reuven turned to be a good example for the good work done in Israel by Miles and the Integral Dojo.
The future coming ahead with the open mined young generation, and the teaching by the older guys, planting the seeds, looks great.
Their work is about developing the individual and collective "consciousness" of a class of children. Nick Drummond and Joan Berland developed a learning program based on recognizing consciousness as always being a primary part of our experience. Although it is not easily seen or widely recognized, it is something that can be pointed to, described and developed. "As educators, this means learning how to give attention to the interior as well as the exterior dimension of the classroom environment..."
