Work history
    Founder, Director, Innovative Integratorentheoom
    Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, JapanFull Time
    entheoom The platform to co-create something new together with anyone who is so much resonating with us. en = good relationship ご縁、 theo = your inner god 内なる神、 om = universal sounds, the sounds to create the universe 阿吽   自然に相い、歴史を尚び、文化と躍る。 「我々はどこからきたのか、我々は何者か、我々はどこへ向かうのか。」 ポール・ゴーギャンの絵画のタイトルにあったこの問いが、 今ほど切実に疼くほどの痛みを伴って我々に問いかけている時代はないのかもしれません。 そんな不確かな、不安定な、先の益々見えにくい時代であるからこそ、 皆が立ち止まって自分自身を見つめれる場、自分自身と向き合える場、そして出会った仲間たちと同じ共通意識をもち、共に共創していける場。 そんな『場』を、われわれは世界中の同士と創造していきます。 われわれがいま一番失っているのは、外示してくるものの圧倒的なプレッシャーによってそれぞれの「内なる神」の声が聴こえなくなっているということです。 内示してくるものが衰えると、「ひらめき」も乏しくなります。 つまり直感が鈍るのです。 インスパイアの源はエンシオス(entheos)、情熱を意味する ”enthusiasm” の語源にあたるギリシア語です。 これは「インスピレーション」の語源でもあります。 生物学者でもあり、国連人間環境主義のアドバイザーを務め、”Think globally, Act locally” の言葉でも有名な、ルネ・デュボスはこう言っています。 『われわれには本来、「内なる神」としてのインスピレーションが潜在していて、このインスピレーションを取り出すことが人間の精神の力であり、魂(ソウル)や霊(スピリット)が出入りしていた。 インスピレーションが跳ねていたのだ。』 僕は、この本来の人間に備わった力を呼び覚ます『場』、エンシオス(インスピレーション)の神を出入りさせる『場』こそ今の時代に、今後の時代に求められているのではないだろうかと直観したのです。 世界は繋がっている、ならその関係性を切り離さず、相互にインスピレーションを受けたり放ったりする『場』。 それぞれに眠る『内なる神』、それぞれが持ち合わせている『無限の可能性』を呼び覚ます『場』。 そんな『場』を迸らせるのです。 Be close to nature, honor history, and thrive with other cultures Where did we come from, who are we, where are we going? This question, from the title of a painting by Paul Gauguin Perhaps there has never been a time that asks us questions with such a searing pain as now. In such an uncertain, unstable, and increasingly difficult to see the future, it is precise because of these times that A place where everyone can stop and look at themselves, face themselves, and the friends they have met A place where we can share a common consciousness and create together. We will create such a "place" with others include you around the world. The thing we are losing the most is the overwhelming pressure of the outside world. It means that the voice of each "inner God" is deafened. As the inner revelation diminishes, the "inspiration" becomes scarce. In other words, our intuition is dulled. The source of inspiration is entheos, the root of the word "enthusiasm" meaning passion It is a Greek word. It is also the origin of the word "inspiration". He is also a biologist and advisor to the United Nations Human Environmentalism and the "Think globally, Act locally" René Dubos famously said, "We have a latent inspiration as the God within. We inherently have a latent inspiration as the "God within," and this inspiration is The power of the human spirit to take out was the power of the soul or spirit coming and going. Inspiration was jumping. I was looking for a 'place' to awaken this inherent human power, the god of entheos (inspiration) I intuitively felt that the "places" that allow people to come and go are what is needed in this day and age, in the future. If the world is interconnected, then a "place" to be mutually inspired and let loose, without separating the relationship. A place to awaken the God within, a place to awaken the infinite potential in each of us. Gush out such a field.
