The texts in this book are inspired by the teachings of Katsuyuki Shimamoto, 8th dan, who has been a Zen priest and aikido teacher for 50 years. The title is taken from a poem that frequently graces his calligraphies: Harmonize with others Harmonize with Heaven and Earth Dance with others Dance with Heaven and Earth Humble and congenial, Katsuyuki Shimamoto is a perpetrator of aikido as a martial art of peace that seeks to create harmony. Influenced strongly by Zen, he emphasizes good posture, calm breathing, universal acceptance, simplicity, and minimalist aesthetics. These short pieces of wisdom taken from aikido and Zen help us understand that living with others is what allows us to live at all. That the right form - including posture, field of vision, and breathing - can change not only our outlook but the outcome, too. That we can neutralize any attack once we learn to accept it. That true victory is to win against our weaknesses, and fighting only serves as a stepping stone towards harmony. That with the right approach, the very life we struggle with can turn into the greatest treasure. Photographer and designer Morteza Ariana has not only given the book a beautiful look but also contributed significantly to conveying its message by adding a visual component to its expression. His breathtaking original photographs resonate with Katsuyuki Shimamoto's sense for Zen aesthetics and clarity of communication. Every text is juxtaposed with one of these images, adding another dimension to its meaning, and often alluding to the contradictory nature of Zen teachings intended to help practitioners overcome the boundaries of reason. Get ready for a book that takes you straight to the heart of the matter. Dance with Heaven & Earth!
Comments to eBook Dance with Heaven Earth: Life Lessons from Zen Aikido

Anna does an excellent job of communicating her Sensai's teachings and encouragement. I have been practicing Aikido for the last seventeen years in WI. It was wonderful to read the insights from Teacher to Student. The book captures the Heart of Aikido and its Harmony. It was light enough on the Zen side to Keep even a atheistic practitioner like me, involved and reading late into the night. The book seemed self published. A few grammatical errors( translation maybe?) and the paragraph formatting seems to not always follow the same format. ( on my amazon kindle)

Outside of this, I would encourage this book to any Aikido practitioner. Its always good to be able to listen to an expert practitioner who can put into words; the harmony that is Aikido. Thank you Anna, for journaling your Sensai's wisdom. Well worth the price. This would be 5 stars except for the challenges listed above.

A great book that is easy to read and understand. The chapters/sections are well defined and so you can read the book cover to cover, or read just a chapter or two in each session. I would recommend the latter, because you'd want to read a section, then think about the lesson a bit, before moving on to the next section. If you are an Aikido practitioner or if you are a little familiar with Zen Buddhism, it does help the reader to understand some of the concepts in the book. However, I would say that you don't need any background in anything -- just an open mind -- to enjoy this book!

As a student of Aikido I have been interested in reading books on the martial arts for many years. Anna Sanner has added a new favorite book to my list of bedtime reading with her Dance with Heaven & Earth. The lessons on Shizentai are giving me so much rewarding in both my aikido and my daily life. But also if you're not an aikido student there is valuable information in the book. Thank you Anna for sharing this with us.

Anna Sanner conveys wonderful insights into the zen aspect of aikido as well as practical insights into aikido training with the correct attitude. These were inspired by her teacher Katsuyuki Shimamoto. It is beautifully written and illustrated with black and white photography. I would recommend this book to anybody interested in aikido, or the martial arts in general. It may inspire beginners and be enlightening to advanced aikidoka. I cannot wait to get back to the dojo to put some of these ideas into practice.

just beautiful.

"Dance with Heaven & Earth: Life Lessons from Zen & Aikido" brings Aikido wisdom and Zen insights straight and deeply into the heart. For those who whish to expand their aikido journey beyond its movements and form, this book is highly recommended. After enjoying it several times, even random reading of each and every page, is always an eye-opening experience.

Anna Sanner documented faithfuly Shimamoto Sensei's teachings during aikido classes and seminars, and thanks to her translation from Japanese to English, we can all fulfil Shimamoto Sensei's dream to encourage us to have conficence in our caring heart and kindness.

Disclosure: My dojo is privilaged to practice anualy under the teaching and guidnsess of Master Shimamoto Katsuyuki Shihan, and the author of this book is our close friend. Nevertheless, these words I have written here, are my honest opinion and based on knowing how accurate and faithful are Anna's translations and explanations.
