【Theme】

”Start from Inner Wisdom The Stories of Interbeing” - Living with all the stories

We live in an era of accelerating global division and fragmentation. Do you ever feel the urge to reactively confront each other with binary opinions such as "right" and "wrong"? In such a situation, what is important is to stop, look at ourselves, and start by accessing the "original wisdom" that we possess. We must recognize each other's diverse stories and live with all of them. And to realize that all living things are related and connected to each other.  Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, who passed away in February of this year, left us the word "interbeing. When we begin the dialogue from our original wisdom, we realize that each story is an interbeing story. As the degree of VUCA increases, a movement is emerging to define Inner Development Goals (IDGs) to examine the inner growth goals of our humanity, believing that our inner development (Development) is essential to realize a sustainable world. A movement has emerged to define Inner Development Goals (IDGs) to examine the inner growth goals of humankind.  In an era that is witnessing rapid changes in the world around us, what are the possibilities for the world we are building together from interbeing? This year's Zen2.0 hopes to create a place where we can discuss such a worldview together.

Only those who have actually been to this holy place can feel the refreshing atmosphere of Kenchoji Temple. The pure breeze blowing through Kenchoji Temple, the rustling of leaves in the wind, the chirping of birds... This year, as last year, we will continue the online relay between Kamakura and overseas venues, while taking sufficient precautions against corona, in order to create a hybrid event at Kenchoji Temple that takes advantage of both real and online locations.

【About Zen2.0】

All Zen2.0 events are managed by Zen2.0, a general incorporated association.  What is Zen2.0? Many of us live with anxiety in today's society, which is characterized by rapid change, lack of certainty, complexity, and lack of visibility.  It may be time for us to stop and rethink the relationship between our true "self," nature, environment, and society, and to ask ourselves what we are living for and where we are headed.  We have hypothesized that the difficulties of modern society stem from a lack of "harmony and balance. We have found hints in the wisdom of the East, especially Buddhist thought and the Zen way of life, which have been handed down since ancient times, and which emphasize harmony and balance.
