Looking for a unique gift for that special someone? We are conducting a holiday auction of one very special item. This limited edition serigraph was donated by Pat Nice Sensei, one of the founding members of the Corvallis Dojo. This print has a beautiful history and rich symbolism. Professionally framed with acrylic glass, it would show nicely in a home, office or dojo. 100% of the proceeds of this auction will benefit our building fund. Auction will end at midnight on December 23rd.
This serigraph is called "Gentle Path" and was created by the artist to reflect her personal interpretation of the path of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido as taught by Koichi Tohei Sensei and practiced by the Oregon Ki Society. Originally, the funds raised by the sale of this limited edition went to the Oregon Ki Society building fund to help establish the first fully-owned Aikido dojo in the West. At that time, a location had already been picked just South of Portland, and the plans were well underway for construction.

According to the artist, Aikido utilizes the co-ordination of mind and body through one's natural movements and the Ki (energy) of the universe.
Chi Meredith trained in the Corvallis Dojo for many years. Training with Senseis Pat and Jake Nice, and Bill Peterson, she attained Shodan (black belt) and became an instructor as well after many years of dedicated training. Always a conscientious and hard working student, Chi created this print to help raise funds for the first dojo built by the Oregon Ki Society. We know it today as Takushinkan Dojo in Tigard.
Chi's professional artist career has spanned decades, and continues to work and appreciate universal principles from her home in Corvallis, Oregon.
Thank you for your support!
