MISOGI

ACTIVATING THE BODY'S SELF-HEALING POWER

Purification cleansing rituals have been used and developed by mystics and sages throughout time to access higher levels of understanding and awareness, as well as mind-body-spirit renewal through what the Japanese Shinto calls Misogi (water purification), by washing away impurities or obscure energies in a river, waterfall, or sea, and Misogi-no-kokyu-ho (purification through breath).

 

Misogi is the core practice of Martial Fusion, by synchronizing physical, psychological, emotional, and higher energetic states in a harmonious way within ourselves, others, and the world.

Breath power also called "Kokyu" in Japanese or breath regulation as defined in yoga "Pranayama", is a self-purification ritual of declogging the system while activating the energy centers known as chakras while promoting the cultivation and circulation of KI (vital energy) through the meridian lines of the body.
