Abiding Spirit Center

1540 Carlemont Dr, Crystal Lake, Illinois 60014

The Abiding Spirit Center, home to our friends Abiding Spirit Aikikai (led by Lisa Tomoleoni), is holding a fundraiser for a new space. All aikidoka are invited to join in executing 1,000 suburi (sword cuts) to raise $10,000 so the dojo can move and build out their new space. Contributions may be made via Paypal to AbidingSpiringCenter@gmail.com (Abiding Spirit Center is a 501c3 organization, so all contributions are tax deductible). Abiding Spirit Aikikai has been home to a number of notable events in recent years, including the annual Midwest Bridge Seminar and weekend seminars with Hiroshi Ikeda Shihan. The Center also provides a variety of health services and other programs, including free programs for the area teen center, work with an area organization to offer free mindfulness training workshops, providing free health care treatments to cancer survivors, free empowerment workshops for abuse survivors, free health care to caregivers of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, and many more such activities. For details, visit http://www.abidingspiritcenter.org or Facebook.
