Yesterday morning Sensei George Leonard passed away. He was a brilliant thinker, a gifted aikidoist, teacher, author and musician. And he was kind, thoughtful, joyful and a gentleman. I feel very blessed to have trained with him and to have had my horizons expanded by reading his books many years ago. He contributed a huge amount to the world of aikido and to the exploration of consciousness and human potential.
Thank you, George, and good journey.
