 The Places of the India Rhizoming tour
29 November, 2014

India Rhizoming Tour to deepen the Resonativity (Life Resonance Ability)

The India Rhizoming tour now begins.
We will meet various people and unique culture, the unique nature of each local place in the journey.
Maybe most of them is special tribal people which has unique history developed in separated space and time from modern western culture.
To polish the Resonativity (=Resonance ability) between the diverse cultural customs will become a main thing to do in the tour.

Even far in the Subbody Resonance Butoh School, we have studied in the resonance method as
<Awase-Hanare> to resonate with same resonance pattern or defferent resonance pattern. And each student researched in own way to co-create a unique world with subbody=cobody, as the following;

Behind world,
Stuffed spring,
Bee's swarm,
Refugee tribe,
Lost in the desert,
Moving forest,
Missing forest,
Stone garden,
Lost in the desert,
Slipped through,
Rolling stone,
Human mountain,
Human ocean,
Boxed cobody,
Tower cobody,
Chimera cobody,
Spider web,
Behind spirits,
Dismal air,
...and so on.

The coming India tour would be a good opportunity to extend them indefinitely. Those are still not enough to resonante with the world deeply.

If we could not deepen resonativity tremendously, nothing will happen.
We need to listen in another unknown people, culture, history and special nature.
Especially, each local place has invisible barrier, unknown behind world which each local people have resonated in the long history.
We have to learn the best resonance pattern with them.

We will meet with nomad people in the desert, forest tribe people, marine tribe people who live in all over India.
They have wisdom how to resonate well with the severe nature, long hard history, customs, also thousands of years of complex inter-tribal and against modern culture, and so on.
They are wearing a unique body techniques of those.

The resonance method that is <Awase-Hanare> technique that we learned will help you.
At first, we start from learning the same resonance pattern with them, and after that if possible, we can invent different resonance pattern infinitely.
Through exploring these two, it will be possible to be richly growth.

Our modern city life has lost these old wisdom of deep and subtle Life resonance with invisible things.
Modern culture is a history that continued to lose the sensitivity of faint Life trembling among what is invisible.

Hijikata Tatsumi has tried to dig the Life Resonance in "Sick Dancing Princess' which is lost in modern urban life. He witnessed in childhood with those faint but surprisingly rich variations of Life Resonance that old man and sick people in his childhood in Tohoku (North East Japan) had.
It was more than seventy years ago, now Tohoku and other countryside of Japan is swallowed in large wave of information technology, most of them have rapidly lost.
But, among the minority tribe people of India still keep them.
15-25 years ago, I visited them and heal myself, every time the mind and body is broken.
I walked in the mountain and visited the hill tribe people in Southeast Asia and South India.

"Nature is our God."
A tribal man who was living as a guide of the sanctuary of wild animals in Kerala mountains, said to me cheerfully.

"It's hard for me the Western people who have agressive self-expresson, but your Asians in not the case. It's nice to me."
Also he said to me with empathy.
"Me too!"
I also felt deep empathic resonance with him.
Their hearts are keeping a non-dual Life Resonance before the differenciation of self and others.
They are so delicately in contact with nature and people.
They resonate with invisible things and spirits that is alive in there.

In our India tour, we meet nomad people in the of eastern edge desert of India, and forest or ocean tribe people of the western edge of India.
It is the place where we can meet the real "Sick Dancing Princess" world that is faintly remained.
Now I am reached to an awareness of what my subbody (subconscious body) drived me to contact them.

Actually I also learned a lot from my partner, Ramesh who supported me for the ten years in the School.
He was also moved from a tribe people as the out of the caste in central India.
He is a mass of Life Resonance from the bottom of the body.
His body has the <empathic imagination> which we are studying of the Tao shiatsu, richer than anyone.
The past ten years or more, I have been helped much to him both physically and mentally, is immeasurable. The wisdom of Life Resonance technique that I learned from from hill tribe people and Ramesh, it is my secret treasure.
I wanted to have the opportunity to share the secret with students for long years.
Finally the dream is becoming true.
When in contact with the new students and external people with Western modern strong ego and self,
my mind and body have torn and wounded so deeply.
The tendency toward the edge, toward the frontier, of the organizer team of old student Devanjali and Indian students oriented the India tour. I have accepted gratefully the proposal of planning team.
Now I noticed that it is the necessity for my Life also.
As I always continue to listen to Life,
"What do you want to do most?"
Body knew earlier than my brain the direction Life wants to go most.
Perhaps, the destination will frequently changed even while traveling.
It is Rhizome.
Because, Life resonance is Rhizome itself, not a Tree system.
Let's enjoy every thing as the realtime Life Resonance.

Subbody Butoh Intensive
with Gadu

March 6, 2015 - March 8, 2015
Mar 6, 2015 at 9:00am to Mar 8, 2015 at 5:00pm

Save the date! Electric Fish: Center for Improvisation and Somatic Research proudly presents this weekend long Subbody Butoh workshop.
Gadu, the Minneapolis-based teacher will lead this 3-day immersion in Subbody Butoh Method.
Subbody Method was created by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner who opened a school in Dharmsala, India ( “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.

This Intensive workshop will focus on experiencing the hidden potential of a body through exploring Hidden Body (Hidden Joint, Hidden Muscle, Hidden Skin, Hidden Cavity and Hidden Fluid) and resonating with one another.

For more information on Gadu visit
Please stay tuned to our website for more details about this and upcoming workshops
