Training Notes

In butoh you can experience a state of mind that is free and clear of doubt. An unwavering mind unswayed by the ups and downs of fear, and you can glimpse a spark of unconditional acceptance and presence. There is no hesitation only honesty. The results of being present allows you the energy for performance. In Buddhism this energy is called Windhorse- discipline and delight becomes effortless and splendid. The Wind principle is energy of presence strong, exuberant, and brilliant! Horse principle is the letting go that results in radical acceptance of your self, and this moment exactly the way it is.. This gives butoh it’s shimmer and deep power. This writing is paraphrased from Chogyam Trungpa’s wonderful writing on letting go

  1. Dear blogger,

    Recently I have visited your blog and read some interesting articles which compelled me to introduce you to the music of Yuval Ron, and more specifically his new release Music for Deep Movement Vol.1. The new CD will be out on August 1st and we are confident that you and your readers would enjoy it because it is for butoh dance. We hope that you will write about the album on your blog, as it fits in nicely with the genre that your blog covers. We also believe that by writing about and promoting the new release, you will benefit from our PR outreach (via our newsletter and linking our website to yours).

    Please click this link for music from the new release:

    You can find additional information on the press release if you need one and on `
