REALIZE THAT THERE IS A MASTER INSIDE YOU

We share the tools for you to do your own awakening to the truth that already lies within you. Only you can take your journey of self discovery. And a map from those that have been in the territory is very useful.

SOURCING LIFE

We find God in everything, flowers, sunsets, a child’s face, etc. The Teachings call that Sourcing. The more that you resonate with the divine the more beautiful your life becomes. We support all spiritual paths and share source connection practices that have been used for thousands of years.

BE VIBRANTLY HEALTHY

Energy is a dimension of time and determines the quality of your existence. There are many factors that determine your vibrational field including what you put into the body in the form of substance, mental thoughts and even the breath that you breath. it is how you breathe that is perhaps even most important and vital to your life.

EXPAND YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS

Quality of Life is about becoming more aware in each moment and having belief systems that allow for an expansiveness of your consciousness versus a contraction. It is time to thing about what you do want versus what you don’t want.

LOVING RELATIONSHIPS

The most important relationship you will ever have is with you. When it get’s right on the inside it will get right on the outside and not until then. When you are happy everyone, including you, wants to be around you. You attract what you vibrate.

KNOW YOUR TRUE POWER

Awaken yourself to your highest potential. Immortality or becoming a Shaman may not be your goal but I am sure that you want more strength, clarity of mind and a powerful presence of being or you would not be reading this far. Be who you are. Learn how to do what you love. Learn what you purpose is in this life and how to fulfill it.

AWAKENED MIND

Knowing the science of how your mind actually works will give your the empowerment to control or direct your thoughts or turn them off at will so that you can make clear decisions or know peace.

INTEGRATED BEING

The ultimate goal of Bushindo’s Teachings is for you to own yourself fully, to empower yourself mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Then become a fully integrated human being living to the ultimate of your capacity manifesting in every way the lifestyle you choose to live. A master of your life.

GrandMaster Richard Van Donk traveled the world to South America, India, Egypt, England, Ireland, Japan, China and Tibet seeking knowledge on ancient wisdom from the masters of various traditions, read several thousand books and manuscripts, received a multitude of initiations into sacred traditions and has now integrated all these teachings into his one complete Empower Yourself system. This was after becoming a master trainer in NLP so he could model their knowledge and he has also deeply studied modern enlightenment technologies. The Bushindo Empowered Living System utilizes the best of all these teachings of ancient, modern and futuristic.

BUSHINDO MEANS

"Way of the Awakened Warrior" or "Awakened Warrior Path"

Bu – Warrior
(Our definition)

One who has the courage to transcend fear, to be resolved in times of challenge, demonstrate peace while being able to protect peace.

 

Shin

Depending how the kanji is written this can be read as Heart, Mind, Truth, or Highest Aspect of God. In our training we combine all four attributes, using the word “Awakened” to describe them. When writing Bushindo we use the kanji character for ‘heart’ because the heart is the center of all the teachings. We begin here and end here in the jeweled heart.

Do

Way or Path of the Bushin (Warrior with heart). Do in Japanese (Dao/Tao in Chinese) also means willful clarity of mindful purpose and directing of the divine will.
