About kokoro-tao

This is a mailing list for the members of the Kokoro Tao Martial Arts Film
Club -- for announcement of and invitations to events and activities.

The Kokoro Tao Martial Arts Film Club is a place to enjoy martial
arts films -- films like these:

These films are typically characterized by:

Fun: We just love to watch people flying through the air while
they do impossible, improbable, or even possible actions.

Esthetics: A poetry of motion, contrasts, seasons and more. What
some might call a poetics of impermanence, informed by Asian
philosophical traditions.

Spirit: A particular kind of unity of philosophical and spiritual
concepts and values expressed by characters and actions.

We organize film screenings and meetings, and exchange tips,
recommendations, questions and answers.

The name of the film club is made by combining a Japanese word
(kokoro) and a Chinese word (tao). This is deliberate, as we do
not want to limit ourselves to one nation, culture or tradition,
while at the same time we also wish to acknowledge that the
esthetical, philosophical and spiritual styles and directions
that concern us have been most consistently explored and
expressed in certain Asian cultures.

Kokoro is a Japanese word connecting mind, body, and spirit
(without assuming their division in the first place), and is also
driving scientific discovery:

Tao is a Chinese word which means "the path" or "the way", the
journey of life, the rhythms of life, the formless identity of
the universe, a system of guidance, flowing with your own
essence. And more. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tao
