We are thrilled to announce our upcoming talk/webinar on Tuesday, June 29, from 5 PM to 6 PM (ET) hosted by the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia. The talk is on Michiyuki: Japanese Time-Space Concept for Mindfulness of Everyone Everyday. It will be broadcasted live from Shofuso and its Japanese garden. Please register from here.
We all yearn for space that makes us more contemplative in this crisis of health and society. Can our physical environment, such as architecture and garden, foster mindfulness? How does it do it? Could we make such space at home or work? This talk examines how the concept of Michiyuki, traveling or procession in Japanese, could help us aware at the present moment. Yoko Kawai and Takaya Kurimoto, an architect/landscape-architect team of Penguin Environmental Design, will discuss the instrumental mind-body-space relationship of Michiyuki for mindfulness. Its traditional applications at Shofuso are highlighted and its contemporary applications are introduced.
This webinar will offer you a rare opportunity to learn about the modern application of traditional Japanese philosophy while watching real Japanese architecture and garden! Yoko and Takaya are looking forward to “seeing” you then. Please register and join us.
