Who was dancing?
Who was danicng with using my physical body?
It was not me, but someone else who lives in the darkness of my body.
I didn't understand it for long year.
After ten years, now I can say that my dead friends were dancing with possessing
Fourty years ago, when we were young, we fought to stop the Vietnum war.
The war happened between US Gavernment which pursured to controll Vietnum
as their colony, and Vietnum people who wished to be indipendent. US army
used the biggest violence, bombs, chemcals. They were based on US army
camp in Japan, and japan gavernment supported the war as a puppet of US
gavernment. We resisted against Japanese and US gavernment by demonstration
at first, but Gavernment oppressed it by violence of police, then we had
to fight with violence. In these fighting, eighty students were dies.
Three of my intimate friends was included. I was a leader of the activities.
I organized many friend as resistants, but I could not die, because at
first I was arrested by police, and instead of me my friends was died.
I had deep guilty for them after the period.
For many years, my dead friends visted me in the nightmare often.
Oneday, I said to them, "Please use my body freely and dance it freely!".
It became my solos, "Infectious Fever", "Dead Fever"
and so on.
I performed thoset pieces in various conuntries as another peroson during
these world tours.
This was a secret in my depth, because if I speak about this, I could not
explainwhat happened well, and nobody must not understand.
Now I can say that these fenomena of possession are just life resonance.
Our life is resonating with everything beyond death and life.
Possessed body is not so much special thing for life. Though we need deep
training and experience to controll it transparently.
Only in the long term course we can learn together about this.
When we sink deeper into the darkness of body, we meet various Archetypes.
Archetype is similar as instinct.
Both are specific resonance patterns of qualia which all human race have
as common pattern imprinted on the genom.
Instict leads to automatic response of behavior, Archetype leads automatic
resonance pattern of imagination and emotion.
When we see red of fire or black of darkness, all of human recognize it
red or black. it is instinct which we share.
And various imaginations and emotions which visit us through the experiences
of red of fire, or black of darkness is the function of Archetype.
Instincts were imprinted in our life during four billion year history of
Archetypes were imprinted in our brain during several million years history
of Homo kind after we separeted from chimpangy kind.
Especially, experiences of deep awe and fear had imprinted in our common
resonance pattern of qualia.
All mankind share the common Archetypes of heaven, hell, god, monster,
ghost, spirit, and so on, beyond the difference of nation, religion and
C. G. Jung found the collective unconsciousness which is deeper then individual
unconsciousness. Archetypes are the main contents of it.
The most basic Archetypes are "Great mother", "Anima",
"Animus", "Shadow". "Spirit", "Wisdoms",
"Trickstar", "Girl", "Monsters", and so on.
So many resonance patterns are floating and transforming in deeper realm
of our darkness of body.
Sometimes they appear as a shape of animals or natural fenomena.
They are not fixed forms, but transforming flexiblly, changing shapes easily
and infinitely. They are the treasure house of rich imagination and creation,
though it is extremely hard and dangerous to experience them.
When we continue the travel in the darkness of body in the deeper realm,
there is a stage which we must meet them unavoidablly.
We cannot plan or expect it consciously, because it is the function by
The encounter to Archetype happens suddenly without any warning.
We may feel that we are attacked by unknown something.
We feel strange fear of being possessed, and step back instinctly.
It is natural response of edge experience of encounter Archetype.
We need to be aware of it, and accept it and become it to sublimate it
to a creation.
The power of Archetyoe is extremely strong.
They are infinitely rich and dreadfully strong to controll us at the same
To be possessed or to sublimate it to a creation, it is a inevitable struggle.
It is a turning point of staying the condition of the human which is bound
by Ego and unconsciousness, or to become free for comminicating them flexiblly.
It is the struggle to be a future human to take off all unconscious binds
including the "Ego" which is the strongest archetype of modern
(About the Ego which is the biggest Archetype of today will be discribed
at another article.)
when we accept Archetype and become them, we become "Arche-body".
There are no border between subbody and cobody, between me and you, between
individual and group.
We become a sub=cobody which is the condition before separating self and
others. It is non-dual body.
It brings us so strange feeling and somatic sense.
Because we become another being out of self. It is full of numinous mysteries.
At that condition, we can open the transparent eyes which we can see what
is happening transparently.
The Arche body is the necessary entrance for the "Transparent body".
The deepest beauty appears in the resonance of life.
Sometimes, we have experienced that unexpected so beautuful resonance happens
among our life.
We don't know what happens, but we notice that our life is deeply moved
I cannot explain what is the resonance body well.
The subbody is the subconscious body, and cobody is resonating subbody,
this is the normal explanation about subbody and cobody.
I have reserched subbody and cobody for long years, but acctually the relationship
between subbody and cobody is a deep mystery and unsolved secret for me.
I cannot explain the relationship with normal logical word. Because it
is beyond logic at all.
Why subbody transforms from subbody to cobody suddenly?
At that moment, the border between the individual and the group disappears.
What is that?
And at the moment our life was moved deeply.
Recently I got an awaerness that the beauty must connect to the life resonance
at the unknown dimension.
It is unknown mystery that's why I research it.
Always I am waiting for the beautifull moment when the unexpected resonance
Hope to join in this research together with us.
This is sure that it is worth to research for life long.
When we could take off our ego and self, it becomes able to listen in the
subtle life resonance. Life is resonating with multi dimensional qualia
at the same time. This is the biggest different point between the consciousness
The consciousness can do only one thing at the same time, thinking, feeling,
imaging, talking and so on.
But, life is resonating with gravity, light, sound, air, wind, weather,
and inner memories or dreams about them, at the same time. The life
of cell has so deep memories which was reserved during the four billion
years. But the consciousness doesn't notice it.
Then we need to stop our consciousness and listen in the life.

Dancers can create a world by resonance
In the second week of August intensive cource, we learn Hijikata's Bugs
Dancers can create a world together flexibly with resonance.
It is excredible wonderful thing, no other genle art can do like this.
Subbody butoh dancers are pioneer for how to create an Utopia by life resonance.
Our experiment of co-creation a world will be resorce for future system
of new human society.
My work is to bring up students to super creators same as Hijikata.
Subbody and cobody started subtle ife resonance at the subbody-cobody theater
of the last week of the first semester.
There are no subject and no object in the resonance.
It just happens transparently as a oneness of resonance among subbody
and cobody. When dancers can stop ego and self on the stage, it happens.
This is the miracle what I wanted to see for long years.
To become oneness is the most important thing for theater. If each dancer
could show excelent technique, but the stage could not become oneness,
the theater is just cold.
Before, yes, sometimes the theater crystalized into oneness, as Hijikata's
butoh theater. But it was depended on an excelent choreograper's irection
and control ability. Without a special choreographer by only life resonance
among dancers has happened. It is the first time for me to see. Even though
it is just the very beginning of them, like as an embryo.
I live to meet it for long years.
Now we get a method to co-create a world through only life resonance, without
any force, control, argument, and direction, though it is only the biginning.
We call it "Resocracy".
In the summer intensive workshop, we concentrate on the life resonance.
Everyday we start from breath of life, and feel our lives are resonating
with multi-dimansional qualia, gravity, levity, temperature, moisture,
air pressure, sound, light, and so on.
Not only these physical qualia, life resonates with inner qualia; memories,
dreams, imaginations, illusions, and so on at the same time.
We need to stop rough daily mind and body, becouse these inner qualia are
so subtler than physical qualia.
When we become subbody mode, we can feel the subtle resonance.
We continued it for these two weeks, with listening in the darkeness of
body, catching subtle signal, and following it, amplifing it to each subbody
And free resonance between each other's creation.
This third week, we entered the next stage to co-create each world of subbody
together thorugh life resonance. We have almost found the method, as the
1. Getting the conditioning method
The conditioning is the essence of subbody method. We continue it everyday
in different ways. Then students can get the way of them.
Conditioning has some stages; the first stage is to release from dayly
conditions. Breathing, swaying, vibrating conditioning are the this stage.
The second stage is to open resonativity to various qualia; gravity, levity,
warmth, coldness, fluidity, solidity, vaporing and so on. They are to become
everything; gas, stone, liquid, creature, hidden characters, archetypes,
and so on.
3. Finding own qualia
Each student meets various qualia in the dakness of body. When one follows
it, one can become something. Through these self reserch, each sudent get
own unique qaualia.
4. Sharing each own qualia by conditioning
Next stage is sharing each unique qualia by each conditioning.
This week students found each own qualia as the following;
-Volucanic stone ember
-Flower without baby
-Heavy snow lion
Each student invented own conditioning way to share these qualia, and guided
other students. When students get these qualia as a group, we can create
a specific world by cobody movement.
5. Finding best combnation between subbdoy and cobody through resonance
This week we practiced these experiments. We asked each life, "What
world do you want to dance in?". "which relationship with the
world do you want to dance?"
Our life has each unique experiece with or against world., as a pressure,
bind, strict, struggle, trauma, and so on. If we find own dance with or
against a world, it must be necessary dance for life. Students tried diverse
combinations among subbody and cobody with various timing and spacing.
These experiments must become so rich treasures for resocracy which we
create a world together through only life resonance.
Slowly we are creating them. This is so exciting experience as a life.
So, we can release from the existing way of choreography which only a choreographer
creates a world and directs dancers by one's own image.
I continued to investigate in it for long years, now finally we are finiding
I begin a day to feel the subtle resonance of life in the morning.
It is the best way to start a day with full of creativity of life.
In front of me, a bird is perching on the top of a oak tree.
He is the best teacher for the transparent resonance body.
Without thinking any thing, he is resonating with everything in the world.
Our human body is made of ten trillion cells. We are not alone, ten trillion
cell's resonance body.
Each cell has a life, and each life is resonating with everything; present
qualia and inner qualia as memories, dreams, imaginations, illusions, emotions,
desires, and so on beyond time and space.
Life is the integration of these infinite multi dimansional resonance.
To feel resonance of life means to feel all of these infinite connections
of resonance. These resonance are beyond the border between death and life,
beyond time and space.
I prefer to feel them the most.
I like them, I taste them, and I enjoy them.
I spend time as subconscious mode, with swaying between sleepimg and awaking.
Then so many unexpected ideas are coming up one after another.
Because it is the most creative condition of life without any daily binds
of dualistic thinking and judgement.
After I moved Himalaya, the subbody method and resonance theory are generated
in succession. It is not production by thinking work, but it depended on
the creativity of life in the subconscious condition. .
I will start the resoannce work from here.
Also I recommend you to begin a day to feel resonance of life.
You can open the infinite creativity of life.
We have two kinds of breathing. One is the outer breathing through lung,
another is the inner breathing by each cell.
Feel these duble process of breathing always.
And remember what breathing did you do when you were a fetus.
There were full of womb's water in your mouth, nose, and lung, we could
not do lung breathing. Oxigen was send from your mother's haert into your
body. 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 continued from fetus age. Oh! not only fetus, when we are one celled
creature, we have continued the cell breathing.
The breath of life, the breath of fetus, and cell breathing are the same.
Become cell, and resonate with everything. Life is resonating with every
thing in the multi-dimension. With air, gravity, light, sound, memories,
dreams, and so on. The cell breathing is one of them.
We continue to investigate in life. It is the deepest mystery for us.
The principle of subbody method is resonance of life.
How can we recover and facilitate the life resonance which has been forgotten
for the daily body in the modern human society, is the most important thing.
There are no teachers in the life resonance, because there are no subject
and no object in the resonance. We could be only a midwife who listen in
the breath of fetus of subbody and cobody, and help the birth of them.
They are hidden in the depth of our darkness of body. We need to stop thinking
and listen in the subtle signal of tendencies of them. There are no border
between one's body and the others body, the subbody and cobody are oneness
at the deep realm. When they come out, ocasionally they become subbody
The important five contents of midwife method are the following;
1. Become egoless and selfless condition, and open life resonance transparently.
2. Tree-rhizome mrthod
3. Ripple method
4. Facilitate the subbody-cobody process
5. Edge work
In this month, long term studetns will start to learn midwife process as
1. Starting to guide the conditioning process
2. Finding the best connection between conditioning and reseaching a specfic
hidden qualia; hidden skins, hidden fluid, hidden cavities, hidden muscles,
hidden joints, hidden nerves, and hidden eyes.
3. Reseaching the total connection among the conditioning, reseaching and
creating our ten bodies; Quiet body, Weakened body, Proto body, Passive
body, Hidden body, Vaporized body, Fossil body, bottom body, Kugutsu body,
Nest body, Possessed body, Anima-Animus body, Transparent body and various
Life is resonating with everything. The life resonance continued from the
beginning at four billion years ago.
About this, please view "The life" and "The resonance"
Long years I have investigated in the transparent body. At the beginning,
I could feel it, but I could not explain it by wordat all. It was just the most ideal condition of body and mind.
Now I can say a few characteristics of the transparent body.
When we are in the daily body condition, there are hard boundaries between
consciousness, subconscious and body. In the conscious mode, there are
hard boundaries between main channel and other channels. Consciousness
can feel only one channel qualia at the same time. Also there are hard
boundaries in the consciousness between intending thing and other qualia.
The other side of the boundary is opaque for daily body/mind, When we are
in theconscious mode, we cannot feel any qualia beyond the boundaries, because
it is in the dark opaqueness.
On the contrary, there are no boundaries in the life resonance and subconscious.
Life is always resonating with everything beyond borders. All qualia are
resonating beyond time and space in the subconscious and subbody. This
world is non-dual and multi-dimensional world, it has complete different
logic from daily world.
Our consciousness is bond by dualism logic, then we cannot contact to the
non-dual and multi-dimensional world with keeping conscious mind.
Transparent condition is to remove these boundaries to become subconscious
body mode, which we call "subbody" released from daily condition.
Especially, important point is to be "subbody" whichopens body and movement channel.
No intention and no tension
Transparent body is deeper level of subbody, which can feel outer qualia
and inner qualia equally. We open to inside 50 percent and to outside 50
percent. Outer qualia are present physical qualia, and inner qualia are
including memories, dreams, imaginations, illusions, emotions, feelings,
bodily sensations and so on.
Timeless and spaceless
Exactly saying, we cannot divide both of inner qualia and outer qualia,
because they are in the non-dual world. There are no border between outside
and inside, now and past or future.
When we become transparent body, we can feel all qualia beyond time and
space, beyond all channels from body and movement channel to relationship
and world-self channel.
Momentary and spontaneously
When we are thinking, it takes time. But transparent body does not delay.
It can response immediately with the real time life resonance. Momentary
and spontaneous is the characteristic of transparent body.
Non-dual and multi-dimension
Life is always resonating with every qualia beyond time and space in the
non-dual and multi-dimensional world. It has completely different logic
from daily consensus reality.
Daily logic is bond by assumptions of dualism; up/down, in/out, self/others,
good/bad, right/wrong, and so on. But in the life, there are any judgments
Life is just resonating without subject and object. Qualia themselves are
Transparent body is just follow the life resonance without any tension
and intention in the no boundary world.
In the transparent condition, we can contact all hidden memories, dreams,
fantasies, imaginations beyond time and space. All of them are just streaming
and changing flexibly. This is the secret why transparent body can open
infinite creativity of subconscious and life.
Opening all channels
Transparent body is a condition which opens all channels. Especially, it
opens body and movement channel. Exactly saying, there are no channel in
the life resonance.
This is the biggest different point between traditional meditation and
subbody method. Because traditional meditation is not open movement channel.
Without movement channel, we cannot contact the non-dual qualia resonance,
because they are streaming with all channel qualia.
In this year, I will start to teach how to become the transparent body
No! Exactly saying, it is not teaching. Your life is transparent already.
I can be just a midwife of your transparent body. I will facilitate you
how to notice the transparency of your life.
