How does the practice of Zen lead to creative life? 


作曲家、映画監督、経営コンサルタント、『Your Life As Art』『The Path of Least Resistance for Managers』『Identity』 『Creating』など、創造的プロセスや構造的思考に関する多くの名著を持つロバート・フリッツが、絶大な人気を誇る禅の修行者である藤田一照さんと会い、この興味深いテーマについて語り合う4度目の対談イベントです。この対談自体が決まった目的なしにあてどなく現実を探求するものです。どこに行く着くかは当日までわかりません。


How does the practice of Zen lead to creative life?  Why is aimless pursuit of reality - observing your life without any commentary - so necessary to living the life you’d love?

Robert Fritz, composer, filmmaker, management consultant, author of Your Life As Art, The Path of Least Resistance for Managers, Identity, Creating, and many other great books on the creative process and structural thinking, will meet Issho Fujita, hugely popular Japanese Zen master, for the forth time to discuss this fascinating topic. This in itself will be an aimless pursuit of reality, and no one knows where they’ll land. 

Mark your calendar on the 9th of March, 20:00 Japanese standard time.

Issho Fujita



Issho Fujita was born in Ehime Prefecture, Japan in 1954. After completing his studies at Nada High School in Kobe, he went on to study educational psychology at Tokyo University. From there he started graduate work in developmental psychology and during that time became seriously involved with zazen.
At the age of 28 he withdrew from his doctoral course and entered Antaiji, a Zen training monastery. He became a priest the following year. At 33 he left for America and for the next 17 ½ years he provided guidance in zazen at Pioneer Valley Zendo in Western Massachusetts. He returned to Japan in 2005 and is currently based at the Chizanso Retreat in Hayama, Kanagawa Prefecture where he conducts research and offers instruction in zazen.
