Focus: Art of Self
Intent: Exploring Personal Potential
Art of Self is a profound step on the Nia Journey. It is the belt that celebrates not just you, but your advanced potential. It's about stepping even further, out of your excellence and into your genius. Being in genius, in the zone, means letting go. It is expressed in beauty, power, and wisdom of spirit. It sets you free into Sacred Movement. It moves you further into brilliance. It is a movement dedicated to a single purpose and person: you.
The desire for first degree is "more". More personal knowing, and more about how to live in a world of pleasure, purpose, and freedom. Plato wrote that, "all knowledge is already within us, no one really teaches us anything new." In First Degree Black Belt we remind each other of the archetypal principles of our nature, our body, and how our spirit knows more, but we have forgotten.
