Your Invitation From Miles Kessler

"Oku ga fukai" - The further you go, the deeper it gets." ~ Traditional Japanese saying

Join Miles Kessler on a full year cycle of discovery with the Meditation For Aikidoka 9-Month Continuity Program

"MFA" Continuity Program Description

Monthly Live 90 min. Course Sessions w/ Miles 

These monthly online teaching sessions are the heart of the continuity program experience. One Sunday each month, you will be going back over the 8 "MFA" course modules and focusing on it exclusively for the whole month. In these monthly live calls, Miles will guide you in how to work with each module for the month. The calls will include Dharma talks,  breakout group Dharma discussions, and Q&A w/ Miles for clarifying your practice. Your course session will take place live on Sundays at 12:00 p.m. PST, 3:00 p.m. EST, 20:00 GMT, and 21:00 CET. 

Monthly Half Hour Community Dharma Discussions 

Following each monthly course session you will have the opportunity to participate in our 30-minute Community Dharma Discussions. These group discussions will take place immediately following the monthly course sessions. In these discussions, you will be able to connect deeper with other members of the on line sangha to share about your practice, gain inspiration from the practice of others, and give support in your own unique way.

Monthly "Hot-Seat" Interview

Each month Miles will conduct a "hot-seat" interview with one member of the MFA 9-month program. In these "hot-seat" interviews Miles will question the participant about their practice, give them adjustment instructions, and guide them on how to proceed in their practice. These interviews will be recorded and offered for the other course members to learn from.
*The "Hot-seat" interviews are optional and will be selected from those interested.

Bi-Weekly Q&A's On Zoom w/ Miles

Every 2 weeks Miles will do a live Q&A session on Zoom for the members of the "MFA" continuity program. In these live 60 min. sessions Miles will answer any questions you have to help clarify your practice. If you cannot join live then no worries. The replay will always be available to re-watch anytime. The Q&A sessions w/ Miles are a great way to help you to both fine-tune and clarify your practice. The live Q&A calls will take place every other Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. US Pacific time (2:00 p.m. US Eastern time) and at 20:00 Central Europe (subject to change).
*There will be no Q&A sessions in August.

Weekly "Dharma Pod" Meet-Ups via Skype Or In Person

Each week you will have the opportunity to participate in self-organized "Dharma Pods" with other members of the "Meditation For Aikidoka" community. "Dharma Pods" are small-group meetings of 2 or 3 people that will take place via skype, or in person where possible. In these weekly meetings, you and your pod-mate will support each other by covering the material from the monthly MFA course material: the original module replay, the practice workshees, and the practice video. *You can request to have a specific person in your "Dharma Pod", or be assigned.

Weekly Pre-recorded Q&A's w/ Miles

Each week you will get a new pre-recorded Q&A video w/ Miles. In these recordings Miles answers relevant questions from previous MFA students. These Q&A recordings are exclusively for those in our "MFA" continuity program. The Q&A sessions w/ Miles are a great way to help you to both fine-tune and clarify your practice.

MFA Continuity Program Private Facebook Group

As a course participant, you will gain access to our exclusive, closed facebook group. This forum will be your learning community where you can interact with Miles and other course members as you go through your weekly modules and practices. This will be the continuity program's home base where we will post all of the Course Session Replays, the Facebook Live Q&A broadcasts, and the Dharma Bites.

Weekly Recorded "Dharma Bites" w/ Miles

Each week you will receive a pre-recorded "Dharma Bites" meditation audio to listen to throughout the week. These meditation audios are prerecordings of Miles teaching during meditation gatherings and retreat. These "Dharma Bites" inspiring talks that are a powerful catalyst for awakening in your daily life through out the week. They will be available to you for listening to on line, or to download the audio file for portable listening.

All Content In Downloadable Video & Audio Formats

Each one of the monthly sessions will be available to you for re-listening to online, or for downloading to listen at your convenience. These audio archives will be a valuable Dharma resource for you to keep and re-listen to for years to come.


"After starting the MFA 8-week course, I began to face deeper questions. The "9-Month Continuity Program" gave me the opportunity to understand these concepts in a much deeper way. Over the 9 months I had plenty of time to discuss my new experiences with Miles. I also had the time to observe how these new insights helped my aikido on the mat. The "MFA 8-week Course" introduced me to a world that I was not aware of. The “9-Month Continuity Program” gave me the ability to enjoy this new world.  "

"It is very inspiring to connect and share with people all around the world. This multi-form "9-month continuity program" supported me to integrate the practice progressively over a long period of time. It helped me make a link between my meditation practice, my Aikido on the mat, and my daily life. I just recommend this course!"

Aline Barraud

"Each one of the bonus guests teachers are a jewel of wisdom. I can say that I started to understand quite a bit more of their wisdom thanks to the 9-month program."

"The 9 month meditation course which Miles offers provides an ideal way to integrate core practices of Aikido and meditation. By taking a month to examine each one of these principles, the student gains a deeper understanding of how Aikido is both a martial art and meditation in practice which can be applied both in and out of the dojo."

Brad Hendricks
Washington, D.C.

"The MFA 9-month continuity program really launched my personal meditation practice and changed everything. It gave me the chance to go deeper, but in a slower and deeper with ongoing support from Miles. My regular meetings with my Dharma pod partners enabled my floating puzzle pieces to fall into a meaningful place. I went from zero to a daily practice as a result of the two MFA courses. My day is no longer complete without meditation, whether a long or short sit. As time goes on, my understanding grows of how meditation practice affects everything, aikido and beyond. I never would have imagined this before the MFA 9-month continuity program."

Kelly Banister
British Columbia, Canada

"The MFA 9 month continuity program was just that, continuity. The 8 week course was so rich in content, it was really great to go back to each module and really sit with each one for a whole month. Also having a meditation community for a whole year to support and be supported by was super valuable. The regular meetings with my "pod mate" helped me process things and be accountable for my practice. This was priceless! And the Q&A sessions lent even more richness to the program. No regrets, and I gained so much from the year! "
