zenschool kamakura





Saved by Zen practice and use that wisdom to innovate the world

The opportunity to create the innovation course, zenschool

Founded Zen 2.0, the world's largest international conference on Zen and mindfulness from Kamakura

Miki , the founder of enmono, developed depression after experiencing restructuring due to the Lehman shock in 2008, and with the experience saved by the practice of "Zen", Zen 2.0 was used as a "thank you" to Zen with his friends. Founded.
The international conference, which was initially started with four people, has grown into the world's largest international conference on Zen and mindfulness in five years. With this success, we realized that the transformation of the mind by practicing "Zen" could bring out the potential of human beings, and we are incorporating that essence into this school of innovation.

To create an endogenous motivational innovator like Steve Jobs

A program based on the True Innovation® theory developed over 8 years

This program was born out of a 10-year trial-and-error process of eliciting intrinsic motives within an individual through mindfulness meditation, thorough self-disclosure, and deep dialogue. , It is operated based on the original innovation theory "True Innovation®" theory.

Through thorough self-disclosure, we will hold a reflecting talk in a place of absolute psychological safety. After that, we take out the product concept based on the intrinsic motivation, make a business plan, make a prototype and realize it. By following up on the extracted concept through a dialogue with us, we will implement the organization and promote commercialization within the business entity of the company.
