The genuine ”Zen” Steve Jobs believed.
~Zen : mindfulness workshop by Soto-shu monks~

Culture shock in Japan, challenging working environment, tough parental care, relationship with partner, etc… The stress and worries are the part of our life and they are something we cannot avoid. However, if we do not manage them well, our view becomes too narrow to think about ”happiness” and ”bright future”. In other words, we lose our ”mind”. In order to increase our ”mindfulness”, Japan has developed the philosophy of ”Zen” taking nearly 500 years of time. It is all about the respect of ”Wabi = Simpleness” and ”Sabi = Silence”.
In this workshop, we will invite the monks of Soto zen. as facilitators and lead you learn and practice ”Zen” in order to enhance your ”mindfulness” in your file.
Soto zen has more than 800 years of history and it became internationally famous because Steve Jobs, the former CEO of Apple, was one of the most eager ”Zen” practitioners in the group.
