The Barefoot Sensei
The Barefoot Sensei – Mick Dodge – teaches us that the three terrains of the cultural story comprise the Wild, the Tame, and a center called the Hearth where we integrate the opposing forces of Wild and Tame to reconnect our hearts back into the Earth. Through the Five Ecstatics he helps us to ground in the Earth and center in the HeartH by moving and with Power Totems crafted from trees and stones. Then we can begin a practice of Shapeshifting our bodies and the cultural story. When we awaken the body’s sensory memory we recover passion – and deep expanded states – that heal us, and the land.
The Barefoot Sensei, Mick Dodge, is a well-known visionary raised in the Olympic Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. He spent his childhood years studying numerous forms of martial arts in dojos in Japan and Okinawa, served for six years in the United States Marine Corps and lived as a Barefoot Nomad for many years walking the rhythms of the land through both city and countryside. Sensei also lived in solitude in the wild, learning practice forms from his teachers the trees and animals and stones and glacial peaks and waters and lands.
The Barefoot Sensei has been featured on YouTube, Vimeo, in many magazine articles and documentary film pieces. His work is presented on his facebook page: Mick Dodge. Sensei is available to work with private groups at the HoH Dojo in the Olympic Mountain Rainforest. Contact email@example.com to make arrangements.
