国際日本ヨガ連盟の使命

人間というものは、絶大無限の可能性を秘めているものです。中村天風は、ヒマラヤ山脈のふもとにある滝壺のわきで、心と身体を一つにすれば(瞑想)驚異的なエネルギーが人間にわいてでることを、悟りました。その結果、天風は肺結核を克服し、甦ったのです。日本に帰ってから、天風は、心と身体を一つにするための実践方法を集大成し、「心身統一法」なるものを創案しました。これが日本式ヨーガとか日本式瞑想とよばれるもので、今までだれも知らなかった、秘められた能力を開発する方法です。

 

国際日本ヨーガ連盟は、世界中の関心のある人々に、心身統一の方法を提供いたします。当連盟の本部は、日本の京都にあります。会費は無料で、日本語、英語の両方の言語でかかれた『IJYAジャーナル』を無料で配布します。会員を希望する方は、ただお名前と連絡先をお知らせくだされば十分です。個人的な情報はかならず守ります。さらにくわしいことを知りたい方は、下記に連絡ねがいます。

ABOUT THE IJYA

Human beings have a tremendous latent potential that's waiting to be unearthed. Nakamura Sensei discovered the extraordinary energy of mind and body unification beside an ancient waterfall in the Himalayan mountains, allowing him to heal from tuberculosis and manifest a new state of consciousness. Upon his return to Japan, he created a new path called Shin-shin-toitsu-do: "The Way of Mind and Body Unification." A form of Japanese yoga and meditation, Shin-shin-toitsu-do unearths our buried talents and rarely realized potential.

LEARNING MORE ABOUT SHIN-SHIN-TOITSU-DO
Shin-shin-toitsu-do, which is also known as Shin-shin-toitsu-ho, has been widely practiced in Japan since the 1920s. Its founder, Nakamura Sensei, taught a very large number of students, many of them celebrities and well-known figures in Japanese society. However, outside of Japan this Japanese version of yoga is in its infancy, with few training centers in the West. Interested parties can learn about this art by reading Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation (Michi Publishing), the first book in English about the original mind and body unification principles of Nakamura Sensei. Recently, Michi Publishing issued The Teachings of Tempu: Practical Meditation for Daily Life by Davey Sensei and The True Paths to Meditation by Sawai Sensei should published in the near future.

 

Direct instruction outside Japan is offered by Davey Sensei's Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts in California, which serves as the hub of IJYA activities in the West. Visit www.senninfoundation.com for more information. For information about Shin-shin-toitsu-do instruction in Japan, visit Sawai Sensei's blog at http://tenpujuku.com/. The Tenpu Juku is Sawai Sensei's private school of Japanese yoga, and the blog is in Japanese. Individuals outside Japan that wish to practice at the Tenpu Juku should first contact the IJYA. Send e-mail to Davey Sensei, IJYA International Chief Instructor, at hedavey@aol.com.

THE IJYA JOURNAL
The worldwide IJYA Journal is a members only publication of the Kokusai Nihon Yoga Renmei (IJYA). IJYA membership is FREE. The journal is published periodically and offers instruction in Japanese yoga, meditation, and healing arts to the public. The goal is to make the teachings of Nakamura Sensei available to a larger audience than in the past, with an emphasis on making Japanese yoga available to more people in Western nations. The IJYA Journal is your chance to learn important mind and body unification principles that can help you in most every aspect of life. Plus, it's FREE to members, and our not for profit association will never give your contact information/e-mail address to other parties.
