Did you know that Zen and mindfulness have many similarities, and that many say that mindfulness actually came from Zen teachings? You will learn about the basics of Zen meditation, posture, and breathing. Then we will move on to a meditation experience during which I will guide you to a deep state of relaxation and mental clarity. After the meditation I will talk about a special word from Zen sprit. We'll end the experience with a Q&A session, when you can ask me about anything in Zen and life.
Besides being the head monk of the Kannou Zen temple, I also do personal calligraphy and driftwood art exhibitions, in addition to producing calligraphic arts and signboard engravings. Nowadays I also provide Zen mental consulting services to IT companies and professional athletes. The Zen tradition is deeply rooted in the Japanese culture and thinking, but not easily understood from the outside. By creating this experience in Central Tokyo, I hope to make Zen teachings easily accessible and practically applicable to your daily life even after the experience.
The experience will be conducted at the art gallery in Kiba. It is not a traditional place so you can feel more freely to experience ZEN.
