This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. What is Aikido and how can it help us to find solutions to modern-world issues like radioactive waste management?
In a surprisingly animated talk, Christophe Depaus gives us the chance to see aikido’s spiritual pillars explained in action – on just a 12m² stage! – and how to build a bridge between two worlds that seemed incompatible before.
Christophe Depaus is a mining engineer, philosopher of sciences, expert on nuclear international law and management of radioactive waste with a thirty years-long intensive Aikido training that brought him to reach the level of 5th dan at the young age of 37.
His very different experiences reunited by a strong holistic approach allowed Christophe to develop his own vision of Aikido’s application on education and society that he proposes in his dojo since 2006.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
