Sinking into darkness of the body

Become the multiple Sexualities


To become Transparent Sexuality means that you are not being bound by birth and growth.

Both of womanhood and manhood are treasure Qualia of Life, including asexuality.

But, we are bound by both of biological sexuality and
social gender , too much.


We have grown up as heterosexuality or homosexuality or other minor sexuality depend on individual history.


We can release from all of those restraint.


At first, I introduce diverse traps of Sexualities one by one, because those are multiple resonance and so complicated entangling.


Sexuality and Gender


Biological sexuality

Opposite sexuality

Mono sexuality as Life

Social Gender


Variations of Sexuality




Minor sexuality

Mother complex

Father complex

Lolita complex

Shota complex

Abnormal sexuality




Animal sexuality

Dead sexuality

Mono sexuality


Violent sexuality





Sexual abuse

Sexual harassment

and so on....


When we are bound by a specific sexual tendency, our body becomes a specific hormomes mode.

This is very strong trap of sexual mode.

See transparently it, and invent own conditioning how to release from the specific mode.


Our human are bound by not only somatic Qualia, but also bound by so complicated imaginary and emotional Qualia
as the following;


Twin sexual entanglement (=Family role)










- Girl friend

- Boy friend

and so on


We are bound by Archetype and Prototype Qualia in the darkness of body


Archetypes of Sexuality




-Great mother

- Imago






- Queen


- Sage (Wise man), wise woman











Prototype Qualia as Life


Safety tendency---Fear, shivering, block, paralysis

Comfort tendency---Addiction, habit

Connection tendency---Touching, contacting

Individuation tendency---Realizing true oneself 100%

Resonance tendency---Finding best resonance pattern



Resonance Patterns in Human relationship


- Transference


-Dreaming up



-Persecution delusion

-Triangle relationship



See Transparently that all of those are just diversity of Qualia Resonance patterns.


How to release from those entanglements


"Become nth sex!" Gilles Deleuze

Become Rhizome of multiple sexuality


Become Transparent Rhizome with dancing every kind of sexuality, and see every phenomena transparently as the Qualia Resonance of Life in non-dual and multi-
dimensional realm.


We do not need to be bound by any specific narrow Sexuality of human at all.

Let's take off all restraints of human.

Let's become man, woman, child, old, near death, various disability, insanity, animal, plant, incect, bacteria, water, wind, stone and infinite transformable Rhizome!

We can live the multiple sexualities beyond the contemporary human boundaries.

Butoh of Life is able to expand infinite creativity, originality and resonativity of Life.

This is the deep freedom of future as Life.

Thank you!
He seems to continue the reverse twist the own qualia that entangled at each dancing places of body.
Keep deepening!

Dear Lee;

I started this project with the intention of bringing the lost memories feelings movements back to awareness.
A season for all those things buried under skin to relive through dance and be a part of my life again.
I work alone in my apartment, shoot the pictures myself; very private process and i feel this is the only way
to realize this project.

I will keep on sharing images and info
I really appreciate your interest

Carrying the Secret

In the co-creation of the end of April theater,
every students integrated for two months research
in the darkness of body, and carried each own Secret.
The total duration became over 3 hours, with 1 solo, 3 duo, 1 quartet, 1 all cobody piece.
Sometimes, a Secret met another Secret, and entangling through.
Now, each student got many Secret and Mysterious Qualia.
They could have collected the sources of the own creation
during March-April.
In May course, we will polish them to the unique Beauty with gathering, reducing, amplifying and invent various Flowers.
Flower has deepest Life Resonance beyond human aspect.
We will learn Hijikata Butoh of Life method and struggle with it.
The most important thing is to find own necessity to be weakened body that has the deepest Resonativity of Life.
And to grow up to the Transparent Resonant body (subbody=cobody) as One Life.

Sinking into darkness of the body
Beyond the Ego Traps
30 April, 2016

Beyond the Ego Traps

How does ego appear?


Ego has so many appearance. It has multiple ways of appearance.

At first you have to know all of them, and when you notice their signal to appear, say hello to ego and say good-by immediately. I know you well you are important for my daily life, but not know.

Now is the time for creation. Good-by and see you later.

Repeat this greeting in each time to meet ego.


1.   The subject

Ego always tries to be the subject. I’m independent of will. I decide everything about me. When you notice this tendency, just throw out your judgment and opinion. Just move with following other’s movement. When you release from the pressure to be the subject and change your behavior pattern, you must encounter a brilliant timing to invent novel thing. You are too much bound by the pressure to be independent, and you have lost the real creativity.    


2.   Territory keeper

Ego keeps one’s territory, “This is my space, Don’t enter!”

When you notice the appearance of territory keeper, just give your space others, and try to share your space. You must find a fresh way of being resonant. 

3.   Property owner
Ego always persist one’s property. “This is mine!”

When you notice the moment your will have a tension of possession, just open your hand. You can release from the bind of your property. You must be aware of how the property binds you so deeply.  


4.   Self-justification

Ego always justify oneself. Ego cannot live without self confidence ; “I’m not wrong.”


5.   Story maker

Ego always makes a story that “I am not wrong.” “If I did not proper thing, it has reason because of another person’s behavior or speaking. It is not my fault”, and so on. And ego believe one’s own story, even it is just excuse for justification. Ego is not aware of it. Because these are unconscious processes.


6.   Pretender

Ego always pretend oneself better than it is. Ego have to forget what it is, and ego can believe another story which ego framed up by oneself.


7.   Negative critic

Ego always watch others by critical eyes, and try to find the break point of others story. Because ego need to be aware of a failure of one’s story.


8.   Tempered by unconscious emotion

Ego is always under conditioning by emotional tendencies. But they are unconscious, ego does not notice about it. Only watching carefully of the subtle signal from body and emotion, help you to be aware of these emotional conditioning.


How to stop ego


Ego always appear unconsciously, it is hard to notice before ego’s appearance.

When you notice it, immediately say hello and good-by. This is the only able attitude. Just continue it. Repeat the same greeting. At first ego regist against your greeting, but slowly ego understand and calm down not to disturb the creation someday.

But you can prevent ego to activate, because ego appear through communication with others ego. Then the best way is to stop communicate with others. The second best way is to stop talking with others. Because ego is bound by language thinking, and language is bound by dualistic judgment.

I mean to find the best distance from others.

When you stop talking and thinking by words, you can calm down your brain and become quiet to be able to listen to the subtle signal from the darkness of body.

Through these training to calm down ego, finally you have to be the transparent body/mind which is able to see the subtle signal of appearance of ego and super ego, emotion, and subtle tendencies from the darkness of  body transparently.

 Octopus Tomato/ Shai and cobody
22 April, 2016

Resonance supporting each other

This year's Subbody Resonance School is focusing on sharing everybody's hopes and problems as own hopes and problems each other.
We have been promoting the mutual co-creation that co-create a specific world that most want to dance in for each one.
As ever, not a person directing all as a choreographer, we threw away that kind of Tree system.
Yes, one of us initiates to share a specific Qualia to co-create a world that is necessary to deepen the research in own Mystery.
And the others share the specific Qualia and co-create the world to support it.
But, it is not taking a role like as in the theater play, we always keep the Transparent condition which supporting others 50%, and researching own Secret and Mystery 50%.
Transparency means listening to inside half and outside half, not being bound by anything.
It is the richest environment to research in each one's forgotten Qualia or Unremindable Memory.

Today we co-created Shai's world who is second time short-term student followed in 2014.
The Qualia we shared are pretty complex hard to say by word, simply symbolizing as the encounter of Octopus and Tomato on the dinner table.
Students shared the Qualia and tried to be Transparent that is co-creating 50%, researching own Secret 50% during the performance.
Strange and interesting world was born in just a practice of about an hour.
Everyone could enjoyed it Transparently.
This Transparent work which we have continued every week should bring the most rich environment for everyone to encounter the forgotten or unremindable Qualia.

If one can not stop thinking, just strapped by ego trap resists to sharing "the others Qualia!". But the boundary of self/others is illusion in the darkness of body.
Because, It is non-dual and multi-dimensional world of Life Resonance.
How is it possible to enjoy this wonderland?
Maybe we need to get the technique of "De-self conditioning".
Immediately to stop thinking that denies others is essential.
Denying is characteristic of Ego-trap.
The biggest difference between Life and Human is this Ego-trap.
It will be a key to enter this nonchalant transformation of Butoh of Life.
We are going to focus on it for next step.
