■ Details
"Open innovation" I think many people have heard this word. This concept of open innovation is an innovation model advocated in the United States more than 20 years ago. Now, Japanese companies are desperate to introduce this "open innovation" 20 years after the United States. However, it is said that many innovations that rely on external information are almost unsuccessful.
"Corporate open innovation Why idle?"
To summarize, it can be summarized that the business people involved in open innovation were working with extrinsic motivation, not with intrinsic motivation.
So how can you work on your business with intrinsic motivation rather than extrinsic motivation?
To answer this question, we would like to propose a method that we have been working on since 2011 and have achieved good results.
Since 2011, we have been running a school "zenschool" for small and medium-sized business owners to create their own original business.
As of July 2019, there are 152 students, and 1/4 of the graduates are creating businesses with intrinsic motivation.
Until 2018, it was held in Tokyo, Toyama, Osaka, Toyota City, etc., but from 2019, we have been developing a program in Kamakura that can take out even more intrinsic motivation.
And this time, we have started to provide the program.
The outline of the program is as follows.
◯ Gong meditation
What is Gong Meditation?
Gong to rest your brain quickly
Gong has long been a tool used in ceremonies and religious events in various countries and cultures. It is said that the origin of the buddha dates back to the time when the buddha was born.
The sound of a gong leads us to a deep meditative state by simply lying down and entrusting our mind and body to it. The sound transmitted to the brain sinks the work of the left brain and activates the work of the right brain. In addition, the sound of Gong shifts the brain wave from the beta group to the α group, theta wave, and the delta group, leading to a deeply relaxed state of the brain, recovering from fatigue of the brain and body even in a short time, and adjusting the autonomic nerves. It is also said that there is.
For some people, the deep meditation experience through the sound of the Gong connects with the subconscious and eliminates past trauma and trauma.
Gong's work on the body
It is thought that when we break down our bodies, organs, and individual cells into small pieces, we end up with tiny small elementary particles. And each of the elementary particles vibrates finely. It is said that the disturbance of the frequency (frequency) leads to various mental and physical problems, and the environment where the computer and communication line are constantly in contact, and the busy modern age where a huge amount of information is unknowingly processed every day. It can be said that our lifestyle is in an environment that is prone to such problems.
Our body is made up of about 70% water. There is a rule that sound travels faster in water than in air. Therefore, the sound of Gong also spreads to every corner of our body and works to restore the disturbed frequency to the original frequency. We think this is the reason why after experiencing Gong Meditation, we feel that not only our head but also our body is clean.
