SHIBUMI

The Samurai are a good example of those who live by a code. The Bushido code, and the inner work required of these warriors through long hours of meditation, study, contemplation and severe physical training, led them to Kokoro and Sacred Silence. They used the term “Shibumi” to describe their experience. Shibumi means “effortless perfection” and when one accesses it they flow with an unconscious competence, as if their minds were riding the razor’s edge of present moment awareness.
