Bokken, an exercise in mindfulness by ObscureStar Bokken, an exercise in mindfulness by ObscureStar
I have been studying aikido for about a year now.  In the dojo we sometimes do bokken practice.  I am not really comfortable with the bokken and this has at times been a point of anxiety for me so it seemed time I should practice some at home.    I could have bought a bokken but I felt that crafting my own would give me a deeper sense of awareness and care about my practice.   It is hand-carved from the branch of a cherry tree that had been uprooted in a storm and washed into the ocean.  I had been holding onto this piece of wood for several years, waiting to find its purpose.
