日本文明研究所 2017 第8回シンポジウム

禅とマインドフルネス

戦前に英文で書かれた鈴木大拙『禅と日本文化』により、禅は世界で独自に展開した。
21世紀に入ってからは米シリコンバレーで「マインドフルネス」として急速に普及し、グーグルはじめ著名企業の社員研修プログラムにも組み込まれるようになった。仏教の禅と世俗的文脈でのマインドフルネスの相違を踏まえながら、あらためて日本文明にとって禅とは何かを考えたい。
曹洞宗国際センター所長で、17年間米国にて坐禅指導、マインドフルネスを西洋に普及することに貢献したティク・ナット・ハン師やジョン・カバット・ジン氏と親交を持つなど禅とマインドフルネス双方に精通する藤田一照師、脳科学とマインドフルネスを基にGoogle本社が開発した社員研修プログラムを日本企業に提供する社団法人MiLI(マインドフルリーダーシップインスティテュート)創立者の木蔵シャフェ君子理事を登壇者に迎え、パネルディスカッションを行う。

Prospectus of Japanese Civilization Institute

Japan has come to form a civilization of its own kind, in the realm of history, religion and culture.

In his book “The Clash of Civilizations,” professor Samuel Huntington places Japanese Civilization in a new position, apart from Chinese Civilization. Our foundation aims to research the following five mutually related categories that are not recognized by the Japanese people to be their identity and personality. Our goal is to study Japanese civilization and pass it down to people in and outside Japan, by actively communicating what we have learnt.

  • The field of Ideology, Philosophy and Ethics
    Japanese ideology, “yamato-gokoro (spirit of early Japan)” and spirit of “wa (harmony)”
  • The field of Economy and Management
    “shinise (long-established organizations)
  • The field of Industrial Art, and Technology
    Art, handicrafts, fashion, pop culture,
    architecture and technology
  • The field of Medicine
    Chinese medicine, Japanese food, and healthy food that prevents sickness
  • Overall
    Politics and Religion

Our goal is to contribute to peace and continuous development of Japan and the outside world, through deep research and activities for creating awareness.

Message from Director

Naoki Inose

Looking at world history, it is said that Europe is the only one that was able to create a model of modernization. However, apart from Europe, Japan is the only country that went through the process of creating a modernization of its own kind—that rivals well with that of Europe—and became a advanced country. Japan has been regarded as islands of disaster, suffering from numerous floods, eruptions, earthquakes and tsunami. But blessed with pure water not to mention the glorious four seasons, and peoples’ nature being moderate, imaginative, original and hardworking, Japan has come to develop a civilization of its own kind. Amid the globalization of the economy and communication amongst people, Japan and its people today need to think deeply as to what they believe in. A tolerant mind to accept other civilizations only begins by understanding their own. The role of Japan in international society is bound to become increasingly important. Japanese Civilization Institute is founded here as a place for capable people working together to tackle these kinds of issues.
