2022 Conference Keynote_Stephen Murphy-ShigematsuKeynote Speaker: Dr. Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu

Living with Heartfulness: Transforming Self & Society with Asian Wisdom & Compassion

Dr. Stephen Murphy-Shigematu’s keynote is framed around the metaphor of the storytelling teahouse. The teahouse has some basic virtues, such as tranquility, and we add other virtues such as vulnerability and humility. We also engage in storytelling, sharing our stories in ways that are mutually healing and empowering. The teahouse offers hospitality and refuge for the weary traveler and becomes a place of learning and healing in community.
