Sinking into the darkness of the body
12 Conditioning method 2 Hidden Qualia 
23 October, 2020

Conditioning No. 4 Carrying Density

“Carrying density” is a term of Hijikata.
It was a very important technique for him to transform various being in
the world and the invisible ‘Behind world’. Change the density of the
body flexible; from fluid to vapour and solid. Because only through this
technique we can transform into everything in the Universe. I hope you
practice this every day. In advanced research, you can mix the
‘Carrying Density’ and conditioning No.5, 6, 7, 8 to research deeper

We change the density of the body from fluid, to vapor and solid to become various beings in the Universe including imaginary beings.

Become an animal position
Someone lift up the center of your back toward the sky
Someone pull down it toward the earth
Someone rotate your body in arrow dimensional circle and reverse way
Someone rotate your body in diagonal directions
Your body increases fluidity like various animals and creatures.

Saido (Subtle vibration)
Someone vibrate your body at various parts with a very fine vibration
With this subtle vibration (=Saido) someone changes your body from bottom position via. animal to standing position and opposite.

Someone shift from Saido to subtle sway and the body transforms to the vaporized body.
Let each cell remember when we were one-celled creatures like bacteria or ameba. We are floating in the ocean and when it became dry, we float in the air as the dust.

The temperature change to very cold and whole body shift to the frozen body, solid body, stone body, and mountain body.
Thus, through the resonance with the world, the density of the body is changed.
Through this <Carrying density> technique, you can transform into everything in the Universe and imaginary beings.

Conditioning No. 5
Five hidden Qualia

Opening five hidden Qualia

Try to open the following five Qualia that daily body has forgotten.
Hidden cavities
Hidden joints
Hidden muscles
Hidden fluid
Hidden skins

Conditioning No. 6  Rokudo (Six Realms)


Pass through six kinds of Qualia to your body

Life resonates with really different things. It is easy to see that it is resonating with various Qualia of the world such as gravity, air, light, sound, and wind, but not only them.
Life resonates with also dreams that cannot be remembered, distant Life memories, Qualia of dead people, subtle tendencies of unconscious body, etc.
It resonates with Qualia of many invisible different worlds. That is the actual condition of Life. In the Subbody Conditioning No. 6 "Six Realms", through six kinds of movements, we interact with various different worlds, and transform into a body opened to the multi-dimensional world.
First, we pass through all the parts of the body by the following movements; Vibration, Sway, Wave, Shock, Collapse, and Death, one after the other or randomly. The Qualia of the physical movement resonates strongly with the Qualia of some memory and waits for the moment when it becomes one. As a discovery of that day, name it, save it in the darkness of the body. The accumulation of those Qualia eventually leads to the 
<Clouding body technique> in the future.
Always accumulate a large variety of unique Qualia in each layer of the Hidden Skin around the body and put the Qualia on them. Especially when you dance with improvisation, when you create choreography, the unique Qualia that you can cling from them will help your creations.

1. Vibration

Life of cell resonates with the environment by fine vibrations.
Life resonates with subtle vibration of the earth, air, light, sound, and so on.
The outer Qualia that resonate with those physical Qualia and the inner Qualia that are memory, dream, imagination, illusion, etc. are resonating at the same time together every moment.
The subtle vibrations are a manifestation of variegated Life Resonance. There are various vibrations such as trembling of the cold, shivering of scared to invisible things, quivering of will and expectation. While feeling its fineness, find and accumulate unique vibration of that day somewhere in the body.
And, we will organize our bodies that can dance the difference between various kinds of vibrations of Life. We have to build up this on my own.
During this, you try to be Transparency that is not bound by inside and not bound by outside, too.
We become a Transparent body that opens equally by half inside and half outside.

2. Sway

When vibration becomes longer, it will grow to the sway.
Life resonates with everything by pleasant sways.
Taste and enjoy the 
<Sway of Life>.
The sway of solid matter, the sway of body fluid, the sway of respiration,
the sway of memories, dreams that disappear and remembered.
And the sway which evaporates from this world to another world.
Sway is also a passage to another world that is invisible.
The Vaporized body begins with learning a variety of sways.
We will pass a large variety of sway through each part of the body. Every day, continue until new Qualia of sway are found.

3. Wave

Every creature has its own unique rhythm of wave. The undulation of caterpillar, a wave of snake, a wave of the beast, a wave of growing plants, the undulation of the proto ocean, etc.
Hold off the moment when the unexpected appearance of undulation of the protozoic creature in the body or the proto world.
Various kinds of waves are hidden in the darkness of the body.
Follow the various kinds of undulation and find the best resonance pattern of the Life of that day and stamp it on your body.

4. Shock 

Cell's Life memorizes various shocks that Life has received during the 4 billion years.
Originally the Life was very fine, so we received it as a huge shock with just a small stimulus. From small stimuli such as raindrops, dust, insects, to waves, winds, stones, earthquakes, thunder, fire, battles, and so on. Life has been moved by those.
Many of the signals from different worlds surrounding Life come as shocks. Life has experienced all of those shocks and has invented a technique to survive with overcoming them.
The Qualia of shock leads to Qualia of world transformation for Life. Exploring Qualia of world change and self-transformation such as contraction of the uterus at birth, the sudden disappearance of guardian, natural disaster, etc. becomes one.

5. Collapse

If a strong shock or stimulation/pressure continues, part of the body breaks and loses resilience. Even if you become a crippled distressed body, life will still survive. In restricted movement, invent the way to survive. Life has this infinite inventive power. Becoming a body crushed to the extreme of inconvenience. From there, we will see what kind of movement is invented. And it also resonates with the suffering of the deceased brothers who are still alive.
Weakened body or the disabled body is the foundation of 
<Flower of Kan (=Disability)> which is deep Life Resonance beauty.


6. Death 

Death is the most familiar Qualia for Life. We are always swaying between death and Life constantly comes back from the edge of death. And, one day, I got to go.

Look at this world from the world of death!
It is the position of Butoh dancers that is the Shisha or dead body standing desperately.
It is felt that this world is full of Life Resonance and full of Qualia. We were originally on the side of death.
It is an existence borrowing a Life for less than a hundred years from the eternal Life of 4 billion years. Before we die, return the whole of your creation to Life. I can laugh and die if I can do it. That is the perfection of Jo-ha-Kyu of Life.

12 Conditioning method 1
19 October, 2020

Conditioning No.0 Breathing

Breath of Life

We have two kinds of breathing. One is the normal lung breathing, and another is cellular breathing. We can call them outer breathing and inner breathing too.

We have a hundred trillion cells in an adult body. When those cells get oxygen, they enjoy, get activated and spread. The whole-body size becomes a little larger with very slow speed. We call this the “Breath of Life.”

From the fetus age, we continue this Breath of Life because in the womb there is no oxygen gas. The fetus breathing was also the Breath of Life.

To be with Life all the time

When you get the Breath of Life, you can be on the way to become Life. Listen to Life all the time, Life is resonating not only with Oxygen but with everything in the world.

Towards the Butoh of Life

This is useful for investigating what is "the Butoh of Life" which Hijikata longed for in his later years and could not complete, because of his death.

An unknown virgin frontier where nobody has stepped is waiting for you, right in front of you.

Fetus breathing


We have two kinds of breathing. One is the outer breathing through the lungs; another is the inner breathing by each cell. Always feel this double process of breathing and remember what breathing you did when you were a fetus.

There you were, full of all the water of the womb in your mouth, nose, and lung. We could not do lung breathing. Oxygen was sent from your mother's heart into your body. The fetus did only inner breathing at each cell.

Try to do fetus breathing

You will notice that it is the same as "The Breath of Life”. It has continued from the fetus’s age. Oh! the not the only fetus when we are one-celled creature, but we have also continued our cell breathing.

The breath of Life, the breath of the fetus, and cellular breathing are the same. Become the cell, and resonate with everything. Life is resonating with everything in multiple-dimensions. With air, gravity, light, sound, memories, dreams, and so on. Cellular breathing is one of them.

We continue to investigate Life. It is the deepest mystery for us.

Sinking into the darkness of the body
Let's look up at the sky. Life is always resonating with the world. 
17 October, 2020

Let's overcome the negative influence of coronavirus

Listen carefully to Life

What is the transparency that we aim for?  It is unconstrained by anything and to be the heavenly condition as it was born. Listen to your Life. What is the resonance of Life? Let's ask Life together now.
Notice that the most dangerous influence by the coronavirus. It is the tendency to restrain Life from its raw curiosity and resonativity. Because of the social distancing and economic pressures caused by the coronavirus over the last six months we have been used to reducing activity. It is a global trend. The stagnation of the collaborative mind = resonativity is the most terrible erosion of the coronavirus. Isn't your Life lost the curiosity and resonant nature to react and rejoice like a baby to the interesting things in your life? 
If this is the case, then you need to shake it off, inspire your own Life, and jump into the event for your rebirth. This jump is the path to your own recovery of Life.
Today at 3:00 pm, Yui, a Japanese art therapist, will hold an art therapy session. Monday at 10:00 a.m. our regular butoh course will begin. When you jump into this course, your natural Life will begin to be reborn. And start a new training as the resonant creators who can support each other and overcome the problems together.
The world doesn't need solitary practitioners who have lost the Life Resonance.
In my 72 years of life, I have been isolated many times, regained resonance, isolated again, set back from interact with others, and overcame the resonance of Life.
The key to overcoming this depends on how far we are able to transparently listen to Life. 
Now it is the time to be ONE LIFE for us.

Sinking into the darkness of the body
How to open to the creativity
12 October, 2020

Creativity of Life

What is creativity?

Our quest has finally come to a critical point.
What is creativity?
The day has come to respond to this question.
The root of creativity is the resonance emergence of Qualia.
Qualia has infinite resonativity (resonance ability).
When Qualia encounter another Qualia, it attracts each other like a magnet, merged into one and new Qualia is born.
This is the secret at the root of the creativity of Life.
No one has yet explored this secret in human history. There was no one solving the secret that what creativity is.
Qualia is Life Resonance itself, but its secret has not been elucidated yet.
Today, only we are about to approach the mystery of the trinity of Life - Resonance - Qualia.

The creativity of Life is based on resonance emergence of Qualia
And only those who noticed the mechanism implicitly gained the ability to open up their hidden creativity. However, there is no example that the secret was told to people.
Certainly, people who focus on creativity secreted by subconscious have appeared recently, and the method leading into the subconscious mode by self-hypnotic techniques has advanced.

The foundation of those phenomena is <Resonant Emergence of Qualia>
Qualia are resonating each other always.
Qualia meet other Qualia automatically and create a new Qualia through resonance.
However, the daily body is not in an environment where free encounters of Qualia and Qualia can be encountered, as it is prisoned by floods of information and Tree-like judgment from day-to-day activities and social life.

Open the closed daily body
The Subbody method is what brings our Life out of the closed state of the daily body and brings it to the subconscious mode which Qualia and Qualia can meet freely in the non-dual and multi-dimensional resonance realm. 

How can we open infinite creativity

 There is a traditional practice method in Japan.

It is just to follow the form that the master made.

Zeami of Noh master learned the form that his father Kannami made.

Hijikata’s dancers have practiced the form that Hijikata made for a long time. It was believed that it is the only certain way to get it.

However, I have researched why only Hijikata could open such incredible creativity.

I know that Hijikata continued to dig his darkness of the body.

Hijikata wrote, 

“I’m peeling the darkness of my body.”

 When we eat a bird, we peel off its wings and peels off the meat. Peel the flesh clinging to the bones of the fish and eat it.

Hijikata continued to dig the darkness of his body as if peeling and eat it for his whole life. And created a lot of creation. That's is the secret!.

If we continue to do the same, we should be able to open up the creativity sleeping in the darkness of the body.

I have continued to sink into the darkness of the body. and I got when we could stop daily consciousness, in the subconscious state we can meet so rich Qualia in the darkness of the body. I noticed that these Qualia should be the infinite creativity of Life.

If we could share this method, anybody become able to open one’ potential creativity as same as Hijikata.

I have started to share the method in Himalaya twenty year ago. It is the origin of Subbody method.


The backbone of the subbody method is in the medimotion.
Medimotion is meditation while moving. 
Leave your body to be moved slowly by someone, and at the same time shift to a transparent subconscious state that listens to inside 50% and to the outside 50%.
Traditional classical meditation has closed the body and movement channel, meditated concentrating only on the thinking channel, but when closing the body and movement channel which connects to the root of Life, it's not able to become the non-dual and multi-dimensional resonance state of Life.
Classical meditations that have a long history of thousands of years have fallen into a trap alienating the creativity of Life.
Now it is the time to break the limitation.
The subbody method breaks it and opens up our daily life to infinite creativity of Life.
First of all, this technique was discovered 20 years ago in the butoh dance field that opens the body movement channel mainly and has been developed and deepened.

Freely switch between non-dual
Qualia and each channel Qualia

Dancing between Non-dual and dual Qualia

See the fig.2. The most of Qualia, maybe over 99.9999% Qaulia are non-dual and Rhizome without any orders and hierarchy. They are hidden in our hundred trrrilion cell’s Life memories. Out brain can’t recognize it.

But through medimotion, our body’s cells become able to remind it, and appear at some channels Qaulia; sometimes bodily sensation, spontaneous movement, visual fantasy, audio body sound, emotion, human relationship, world-self-image and Qualia thinking and so on.

Hunt the moment and follow it by your whole body=mind=brain, it become your subbody-cobody.

We are waiting for people who want to develop this Life Resonance Art method into, Art therapy, Dance therapy, Music therapy and so on.

This is the way everyone can become a unique artist in the world.

Yamazaki will reborn after 53 years!

On October 8, 1967, 53 years ago, a high school alumni Hiroaki Yamazaki died on the Haneda Bentenbashi during the anti-war Vietnam battle. I heard that a preview of the movie "After You Died" by the director Daishima, who has shot the movie about Yamazaki, will be held. "Yamazaki, come back!" Was sealed at the request of Director Shiroshima, who visited Himalayan last spring. Danced. The movie is a compilation of Yamazaki's background and the present of his friends around Yamazaki at that time. In the poster above, I use the old name Ryuji Oka.

Sinking into the darkness of the body
Travel map of the Darkness of the body
What kind of qualia should we listen to in the journey of the darkness of the body? This chapter will guide you through three particularly important three points. All of these are almost inaudible under normal language consciousness, so listen carefully while continuing the medimotion enough.
21 September, 2020

Chapter 3



1. Very Subtle Qualia

 Listening to subtle Qualia of the darkness of the body

 I often use the word “Listening”.

What is Listening?

What do we listen to?

When we listen to the body, at first we can sense only ambiguous something that is not able to recognize clearly Is this sensation?
Or the imagination? Or a dream? Illusion? memory?

We cannot distinguish at all.

It is Non-dual Qualia.

Qualia is everything that cell’s Life resonates with. Life resonates
with Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, temperature, moisture, sound, smell…

Life is always resonating with these physical Qualia of environment. And not only those present physical Qualia but also inner memory Qualia of those that are reserved as the Life memory during the four billion years Life history.

Both are always resonating double. We call the former “Outer Qualia” the latter “Inner Qualia”.

We listen to the double resonance of both though we cannot
distinguish as well.

But, during the listening, the non-dual Qualia shift to a certain channel Qualia; bodily sensation, movement, visual, audio, emotion, human relationship, world=self-image, and thinking channels so that we can catch it clearly. We follow it by the whole body-mind until it becomes a certain subbody movement.

When we co-research it with some friends, sometimes a friend’s movement affects you, or your movement becomes other’s movement.

Listen to the process, taste the resonance deeply. It is proof that the border between self and others disappears.

Listen to your own Qualia and other’s Qualia as well.


Listen to inside 50% and outside 50%. This is Transparent listening.

You will meet not only your friends but also meet the world Qualia.

In the world Qualia, it includes not only the physical world but also the invisible world Qualia that Hijikata called it “Behind world”.

Those are the Qualia that we listen to.


2. Non-dual=Multidimantional Qualia



 What is Non-dual?

 I use often “Non-dual”, “Qualia is resonating in Non-dual and Multi-dimensional realm”.  Qualia are generated through the Life resonance that each cells Life resonates with various environments and change of own bodily conditions. Even one-celled creature like bacteria or ameba is resonating with infinite multi-dimensional Qualia and interlaced complicatedly. The adult human body has 100 trillion cells. Each cell’s Life is resonating through infinite Qualia with the environment always, resonating with the gravity, sunshine, air, Oxygen, temperature, moisture, sound and not only those physical present Qualia but also all of those inner memories which are reserved in the cell as the Life memories. Those Qualia are resonating with multi-layered, interlaced, and intricately intertwined beyond time and space. It is not possible to discriminate separately by the dualistic consciousness. When we listen to the darkness of the body at first we can’t recognize whether it is the sensation, imagination, dream, illusion. That’s why we call it “Non-dual”. Originally this word is from old oriental meditator who have continued to listen to the darkness of the body. Also, they have met with this Non-dual Qualia, and became familiar with them.

Adding this, Qualia is interlacing and transforming at each moment. We feel that diverse Qualia are interchanging momentary. Because Qualia are generated through the Life resonance. Life can catch the change of the cell’s body condition with the subtle change of the resonance pattern of the String. (See chapter 1 Mystery of Life, Qualia, and Resonance). Subbody Resonance Butoh is to listen to these very subtle Qualia that is interlacing and changing momentarily and dance the precise transformation of Life. That’s why we need to stop language thinking and continue to listen to the infinite silence for 24-hour. Only through continuing this we can be aware of that Life is invaded and disturbed by how much elements on the earth. Then we can live as Life with opening infinite creativity, originality, and resonativity (resonance ability).


3. Qualia that Life can’t resonate well

Listening to the Qualia that your Life could not resonate well with

 Especially important Qualia to listen to is unknown uncomfortable Qualia that your Life cannot resonate well. We forget those immediately but the body can remember it.  Listen to them carefully and patiently. They are the special rich source of creation. Hijikata had continued to collect them throughout his life. It is called Kan (disabled) Qualia. (See “Flower of Kan” in the chapter 9 Butoh-fu)


Listening to the Qualia that have never repeated

 Focus on the very short-term Qualia that seems to appear for milliseconds and immediately disappear.

Special Qualia that would be a very important source of creation is hidden in the depth of the darkness of the body with multiple entanglements. It is hard to appear.

Those very rare Qualia would be the precious source of novel creation.

Research the very rare Qualia that have never repeated.

Our ego repeats positive Qualia every moment; “I’m OK”, “I’m strong”, “I’m polite”, “I’m good” and so on. Our daily mind is full of those repeated Qualia that support your self-identity or ego. In those repeated Qualia there is no space that new Qualia meet other novel Qualia. No resonant emergency happens.

On the contrary, listen to the very rare Qualia that you will meet for the first time. They have so rich possibility to meet another Qualia and new Qualia will be born. Those rare and new-born Qualia are the most important source of your creation.


Dream of not going well

I dreamed a series of 'not going well' dream several times these days. At first, Hijikata Tatsumi joined in my class and he tries something but it's not going well. So, something is wrong, but I did not understand what this dream means. Next night also Hijikata appeared again, and he tried to make a sequence of movement by following my Jo-Ha-Kyu method, but then also it is not going well. I felt a very uncomfortable feeling. But I know that this kind of uncomfortable feeling is always to tell me some important thing, and so I keep this feeling and tried to listen to it.

Three days ago, also I dreamt that a young female student tried to do something it seemed almost OK, but at the last moment, it was not going well. She asked me "What is wrong? What do you feel when something is not going well for you?"

I was moved by this question. Because this feeling is so familiar to me. At the last moment of this process, I encountered the feeling that some delicate thing is wrong, and I cannot succeed. It told me the goal is very close. If you find only a small thing, it guides you to the goal. But this feeling is so uncomfortable. I understand that she feels the same feeling in front of goal with real Qualia.

Last night, I dreamed the same series of a dream. In this time, a small child who is my staff Ramesh's son Ravi tried something in my class but something disturbs him. I felt the same uncomfortable feeling like the same with Ravi in my chest very strongly. Then I noticed that I am resonating with Ravi, and I feel the same feeling like him.

I remembered that I felt the same uncomfortable feeling when something is 'not going well'. These series of dreams told me that I felt the real Qualia of resonance, though I could not notice until today.

Meditation and Medimotion

 Thinking mode of brain


One more recent discovery in brain science is “Default mode”. Brain scientist found when our consciousness has a rest, the brain activity doesn’t rest, on the contrary, the bloodstream in the brain is more than the thinking mode. The brain is active in “Mind Wandering”. They called this “Default mode”


Default Mind Wandering mode (Medimotion mode)


The traditional meditation technique is sometimes to keep this “Mind Wandering” mode to be aware of various things. Because in this mode various parts of the brain become active and various Qualia can encounter each other and generate new Qualia automatically. Recent “Mindfulness method” maybe in this mode. In the traditional meditation technique, sometimes they focus on one image, for example, “Buddha”, “God”, Gull” and so on. In this case, brain mode becomes closer to thinking mode.

Observe the above figure carefully, it is activated except for the movement field. In the movement field, there is no activity. Because they block body movement at all. The Qualia stream can’t meet movement Qualia at all.

Medimotion mode


What happens in the Medimotion?

Medimotion is moving meditation. Then including the movement field, all parts of the brain become active and all kinds of Qualia can encounter freely beyond any borders.

This state happens only in the Medimotion mode, the reason why the creativity of Life becomes maximum in the Medimotion.


By losing what, do Qualia become information?


The difference between Qualia and Information

The relationship between Qualia and Information has been a mystery

that cannot be solved well for a long time. But, it began to be solved out little by little. When Qualia are converted to information, what do they lose? When this question came up, a transparent brightness was seen for the first time. By losing what, do Qualia become information? It's Life Resonance! Qualia are generated as long as Life resonates with something. When Qualia are converted to information, they leave from the field of Life Resonance which Qualia are generated. They are converted to things that are information. Information of the image, of the sound and of the language, they can be translated into binary machine language consisting of 0 and 1. At that time, by losing the Life Resonance, Qualia is converted into Information. Only Life can resonate with Qualia. The machine never resonates with Qualia. The machine can treat only things like information. From here, it is possible to go confront the deep mystery between Qualia and Information. I was able to find with difficulty such a point finally. Although I cannot drink liquor anymore, Let the imaginary glass empty tonight. I could come to this place by researching "Sick Dancing Princess" of Tatsumi Hijikata which is full of Life Resonance. Not by any information, but by Qualia and Life Resonance, the Butoh of Life will be created

Sinking into the darkness of the body

Dear all friends

Thank you for your warm support.
The surgery of colorectal cancer was succesfull, but I have to continue chemotherapy, because cancer had metastasized to the lymph nodes already.
I need still your support to continue the chemotherapy against it.
Now I am fine and writing the next book "Life Resonance Philosophy" which integrates all my researchs and findings as Qualia revolution, Rhizome revolution, Resonance revolution, Life revolution and so on.
I can die peacefully after writnig this book at any time. I just need for two more years to complete it.

Thank you!
Warm resonance!

Conditioning No. 5  

Five hidden Qualia

Opening five hidden Qualia 

Try to open the following five Qualia that daily body has forgotten.
Hidden cavities
Hidden joints
Hidden muscles
Hidden fluid
Hidden skins



Hidden cavities


Rhizoming in hidden cavities
We have so many hidden cavities in our body. The deeper level of bodily sensations and forgotten memories are connected to these hidden cavities.
The daily body has forgotten them at all. But through the medimotion cells can remember them. When we use them flexibly, we get so wide possibility to transform various kinds of creature and beings including Hidden personalities.
After the practice of 'Upstream Life medimotion', 'Three-dimensional body cavity' and 'Three-dimensional oral cavities', proceed to follow the transforming method.

1. Transform from various body cavities
With following the subtle signal of body image from your life, change the shape of the body cavity in various dimensions.
Ask to your life 'What creature' body image do you remember today?' 
If you get a subtle melting tendency of your life, follow it and transform your own ameba or another creature.
If your subbody wants to flow, follow the sub-signal, you can transform jellyfish or sea anemone and so on.
Our life had spent time in the water for so long time, then our subbody can remember the Qualia of inner water life.
With using various kinds of breathing, change the shape of your body cavity, in various rhythm, speed, and directions.

2. Transform from oral and nose cavity
Also transform from the oral cavity, nose cavity, with various breathing way, you can get so fresh body sensation and emotion, world image stream and so on.

3. Transform from eye cavity
Change your eye with following your life memories, what have you seen in the deep sea, underground, and complete darkness without eyes.



4. Transform with breathing and audio channel
When you follow the spontaneous body sounds with various breathing ways, open resonance with the hidden cavities above.

We have many sinuses--cavities within the skull bones surrounding the nasal passage--warm and moisten the air prior to it entering the delicate lung tissue. When the body sound resonates with these cavities, it becomes Hoomee sound of Mongolian and Tuvin people. They taste the sounds like a voice of Heaven. You can open another dimension through the audio channel.

5. Emotional rhizoming
When you follow the spontaneous body sound stream, also your emotion associates and gives sub-signal, follow the subtle emotional stream. Unfold the hidden emotions which are folded in your darkness of body for a long time.

6. Relational rhizoming
our subbodies are always streaming with changing channels, when you get a subtle signal of the human relational channel, follow them and enter another relationship. Not an only human relationship, but also open relational ship with some strange imaginary creatures. Enjoy

 playing with them. 


7. World image=self-image rhizoming
Final channel is the world=self-image channel.
When you catch a subtle signal of a shift in the world image, follow it and open another world image.
Our life has experienced so many circumstances and environmental changes: ice ages, storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, and so on. 

Enjoy travel in your proto creature's world. Through travel, you became familiar with your various life memories. Develop them until it grows up to your own proto-body which is one of your ten bodies of subbody Butoh.

Hidden joints


Metamorphose from a hidden joint
our daily bodies have forgotten so many functions.
The tail is no longer used for the devolution, but we have still the nerve around the tail.
When we imagine the image of the tail in a movement it helps us so much.
sternoclavicular joints (the joint between chest bone and color bone), and sacroiliac joints (sacrum and pelvis) are also forgotten joints.
Try to move these hidden joints very slowly into three-dimensional directions and taste the Qualia. 
If you feel deep resonance at a movement, it is an entrance to your hidden bodies.


Chest Joint (Sternoclavicular joint)


Move both collarbones forward. The heart fades just a little. Move them even forward, the heart is closed and has been excruciating.
The constellation of the skeleton is changing, introverted self comes out.
Close the chest in addition. We can meet the stony-self who closed to the outside world.
Move both color bones backward. The extroverted character is coming out.
Move them upward. We can remember when we fail something, we shrug one's shoulder.
Move more and our neck disappear like a tortoise shrunken his head.
Move both collarbones down to the bottom. You become a long neck. Move neck with becoming birds and horses.
Move both color bones breading out to the clavicle. 
The sternoclavicular joint is spreading like a free bird chest.
Move both collarbones in a narrow. The sternoclavicular joint is fixed.
Move more, and then chest closed like a fish and snake which doesn't have a chest.
Swim just like a fish with only spine work.



Sacrum joint (Sacroiliac joint)

Move both pelvises forward. Close to the pelvis and chest. The basic constellation of skeleton changes.
You may metamorphose as a prudent character like an armadillo.
Move both pelvises backward. The sternoclavicular joint also spread to a diplomatic, an arrogant personality comes out.
Move the top of both pelvises closer. The knee becomes X leg, Chest also closed, Twist the arm to the limit. You meet a strange character who was folded in the darkness of the body.
Move the bottom of pelvis closer. At the top of the pelvis is spread to a pregnant mother's position, you can experience the body feeling of pregnancy. Walk with taking care of the baby. You can know what the mother is a little something. Separate both pelvises away from the sacrum. When the distance between the pelvises become maximum, your pelvis becomes the delivery position.
Remember the experience which everybody has been experienced at once.
Move both pelvises close to the sacrum. The pelvis is fixed. 
And even closer to the pelvis, your body becomes a snake or fish.
Swim with using the only spine just like a snake and fish swimming.



Hidden joints of the hands and feet


similarly, move the hidden joints of the hands and feet slowly with a three-dimensional direction.
Center/edge change: Move from the center of the body (Sternoclavicular, sacroiliac), and from the edge of the body; from the tip of a finger, toe. Switch from center to edge, and reverse.
Bottom/top change: Wave coming up from the bottom of the body like a plant, and move from the top of the head like an animal. Switch from bottom wave to top wave, top wave to bottom wave.

Jaw joint and hidden eye movement
Move jaw joint three-dimensional directions, and move eyes in an oblique direction.

You can meet various hidden characters depending on the degree

of twisting. Jocular self, full of ideas, cunning personality, curious character, and so on. When you meet a stranger, slowly become

a friend.



Hidden muscles


To open anatomical transparent eyes for the darkness of the body help us to transform the weakened body.
Our daily bodies are bound by rough and large movement by using

big surface muscles. Also, normal dance, sports are bound by the same rough and large movements.
But we have deep layer muscles under these surface large muscles.
They are not straight but spiral and connect bones beyond plural joints. They are forgotten by the daily body and dissociated into the unconscious realm. I call it "Hidden muscle".
We need to inhibit the gross daily body which is bound by only large surface muscles at first.
Then we can listen to the subtle signal by transparent eye for subbody which is connected to hidden muscle and hidden Qualia. To open other dimensions which do not exist in the daily world with using hidden muscles and hidden Qualia is one of the essences of Butoh technique.  

Hidden muscles in spine and body
When we remove large surface muscles like a large back muscle, chest muscles, and stomach muscles, the longest straight spine muscle appears (fig.1).


Fig. 1  Middle layer muscle of the back

This muscle is used to keep the body straight with using bottom muscles together.
When we change the degree of contraction of then, we can control the flexibility of the body. 
For the meditation and Zen sitting, we control them in a medium degree of contraction. 
For transforming stone or puppet, we contract them in maximum degree.
When we release them in each degree, we can transform from solid body to liquid body and vaporized body according to the degree.
When we remove the longest spine muscle, we can find tiny muscles which connect each spine in different dimensions (fig2).

Fig. 2  deep layer muscle of the back

We use these hidden muscles to transform the weakened body.
The skull and each neck spine bones, collar bones, shoulder blades are connected by many tiny hidden muscles in different directions; straight, diagonal and spiral (fig3).

Fig. 3  between skull and neck

The spine and pelvis and leg bones are connected by psoas major which is the biggest hidden muscle. (Fig 4)

Fig. 4  Psoas major

normally we use poses to bend the body and to raise leg forward.
We inhabit these big movements of poses; we just contract poses a little for shortening the leg and subtle swaying.

Hidden muscles of legs and arms 

Most of the hidden muscles run trans plural joints and connects bones apart spirally.

When we stop surface muscles and use the hidden muscles, a strange movement which does not exist in the daily human world appears.

Not made by the head, but following subbodies which live in the darkness of body.

Subbodies have their own Qualia, image, timing, rhythm, we just follow them, and we can sink down another dimension.



Fig. 5  lower leg

Fig. 6  forearm

The daily body can control only large and rough muscle; big hip muscle, long thigh muscle, hamstrings, and so on.
We need them for daily movement and sports, all kinds of dance, but for weakened Butoh, we start to inhibit the rough and large movements, then we can meet subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in the hidden muscles.
When we control them in contraction and release independently, we can transform any kinds of hidden bodies; not-me body, proto bodies, puppet body, humanoid body and weakened body which is swaying between death and Life.

Long process to become Butoh body
To transform the weakened body, we need both of long training to listen to the subtle Qualia of the darkness of body, and to be able to control subtle swaying of each part of the body in different dimensions by using hidden muscles.
It takes a long time.
Tatsumi Hijikata also needed for five years after the legendary aggressive performance of "Nikutai no hanran" (The rebellion of the body, 1968, Japan), to transform the weakened body which dies down all gross movement of dance he learned and completed the weakened body Butoh.
Start from training for controlling each hidden muscle independently.

Next stage is the trans joints movements with becoming another being in different dimensions.
Always aware of subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in hidden muscles, hidden joints, hidden cavities, and hidden skins by opening a transparent mind, then you can transform another being which lives in different dimensions.

When hidden Qualia which are folded in your hidden part of the body and subtle hidden movement become oneness, the weakened body Butoh begins from there.
Take off all conditions as a human.
Become an unknown being swaying between this world and another world.
Look at this living world by dead eyes from another world



Hidden fluid


Proto Ocean for Life

Our human body has sixty trillion cells. Each cell has each independent life.
How do trillions of cells resonate and become one human life?
They have so many kinds of resonance patterns which life has invented in four billion years after the birth of origin life.
But they need definitely water environment for resonance because the important ways of resonance were invented in the ocean. 
Still, now, our life needs the same environment as the proto ocean in our body for communication. 
The origin of life was born in the ocean. They need the same environment for reproduction.
Then for the cell fusion of sperm and ovum needs the environment of fluid as the vagina and womb same as the proto ocean.
Glia neuron network in the brain needs also proto ocean environment as the cerebrospinal fluid.
Six trillion cells need Proto Ocean for resonance, it is the body fluid. 
But the consciousness doesn't take care of it, and then we call it "Hidden fluid".

Listening in the hidden fluid
when we calm down the consciousness, we can listen to the subtle changes in the condition of body fluid. Around 60-70% of our body is made of water.
There are four basic ways of communication among cells; 1. Contact-dependent, 2. Paracrine, 3. Synaptic, 4. Endocrine. All of them need body fluid as a medium.
Body fluid is the medium for cells resonance with the various system of the body.
The endocrine system uses blood and lymph fluid for communication of various hormones. 
Also, the immune system needs the body fluid for the activity of macrophage, T-cell, B-cell, and NK (=Natural killer) cell. They are moving beyond the blood, lymph and body cells.
Neurons are connected by the synapse with other neurons. At the synapse, body fluid is necessary as a medium for the neurotransmitter. Glia cells and neuron cells communicate at the synapse with using various transmitters.
To listen to the hidden fluid is to listen to the life resonance among sixty trillions cells of the body.
When the conditions of body fluid change, we receive Qualia as emotion and desire.
If water decrease in the blood, we feel thirsty. If sugar decrease, we feel hungry.
If sexual hormone increases, we feel sexual desire. If blood pressure increases, we feel uncomfortable, and so on.

Become fluid body
Sway with the ocean. There is no border between inside and outside. Just resonate with everything. 

Transform from hidden fluid
when we can change the Qualia of body fluid, we can transform our bodies into various conditions, and various being; frozen, liquid, vaporized, stone, and various creatures. 
Invent your own ways of transformation from the hidden fluid. 

Keep on listening to the subtle change of hidden fluid. 
It means to listen in the conditions of life. 
Keep on listening in the subtle resonance of life all day long. 
It is the way to be with life.

 World Life Resonance
We start a Support Campaign


Please collaborate on the campaign to support Lee’s Cancer Treatment.

 Click here

Rhizome Lee(Ryuji Oka), a 71 years old Japanese Butoh dancer, founder of Subbody Butoh Method, who has dedicated his life to research on the chaotic resonance patterns of Life through art, in order to free and connect Life beyond boundaries. Many souls and shadows all over the world healed and benefited from his research.

 Relate video:

 In May, he was diagnosed with stage3 (pT3N1b ) colonic cancer.

 Thanks to the warm support from old friends and students he was able to have urgent surgery on the 25th of May in Max hospital Chandigarh, India.

Surgery summary

Exploratory laprotomy + Enmass sigmoid colectomy + Jejunal loop excision + Right inguinal hernioplasty + Cholecystectomy

 But as the cancer report shows cancer has spread to blood and lymph, so even after surgery he needs to go under chemotherapy.

 Just like most freelance artists, he doesn't have any savings. Neither government medical support, as he moved to India from Japan to establish the Subbody Butoh institute 20 years ago. The state where he lives has very limited medical support for cancer treatment, under COIVD19 world condition, all travel cost is much more expensive and plus his body condition(Surgery wound has about 60cm long, the organs that were cut off has about two feet big), for a while he won’t be able to make any incomes to continue his treatment and living.

 Lee never yielded even once to pain or fear of death, his heart full of gratitude. After 8 hours of surgery, in ICU the first word he said was “Thank you”. Once he is able to move, the first thing he did was to write down his new book about Life Resonance Philosophy! Even if he couldn't write down a proper word yet, he said this is the only way he can give back to the world, for all the support and warmth. The most important thing keeping him alive is to give back in return.

 Small drops of water make the ocean, any amount of support, big or small, they all transform to the wind that brings the heart to heaven.

Thanks for all!
