SORT BY Relevancy
Aikido is the Way of Spirit Harmony in life. This martial art has transformed its roots as a fighting to survive art, jutsu, into its higher form of expression as a Do art. This means it has transcended its form and teachings to be of a more spiritual expression while still being a powerful form of self defense that is effective even in dealing with today's modern street fighting dangers.
It has the added benefit of opening its practitioners to insights about their ego self and their principled SELF. Aikido aligns beautifully within the Unity of Oneness and SELFGnosis that we address each week with our listeners.
Karl Geis, who recently passed away, has been Will Gable's beloved Sensei for over 35 years. Will has learned much and passes his learning along to students in the Oklahoma City area.
Today's show is dedicated to Karl Geis Sensei. We will share our memories and his wisdom insights. We hope to interview some of his students at this celebration honoring his memory and his contributions to the art of Aikido and Judo with his unique approach that seems to dance in circles dispelling harm. He developed what is known in the world as Kihara Aikido. Join us today and celebrate his memory and gifts. Thank you.
All to Love, Will Gable and Sharon Quinn.

Most mornings you will find Billy at the beach, drinking his coffee, contemplating the immensities and, if the waves are good, in the water surfing. Otherwise he’ll be running in the sand or skating on the Strand, envisioning the next book or the next song, or trying to forgive some guy who yelled at him on the soccer field.
