In the Shichida home practice guide, there is a relaxation exercise called the “energy balls” which you are required to do with your child before beginning the home practice activities. Although the manual mentions the exercise, there is no information on how it is done. I have also heard that they do the energy ball exercise in class, but until recently, I didn’t know how it was done. Then I stumbled across the following two Youtube videos which show two mothers doing the energy ball exercise with their children. The idea behind the energy ball exercise is to gather good energy and bring it into the body and at the same time remove bad energy. I think the videos show what you’re supposed to do pretty well so I’ll leave you to watch it.
