THE PASSION WORKSHOP
Phase I – DISCOVERY

Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
— G.C. Lichtenberg

With Passion pray, with Passion work, and with Passion make love.
With Passion eat and drink and dance and play.
Why look like a dead fish in this ocean of Love?
— Rumi

Men are admitted into Heaven
not because they have curbed & govern’d their Passions or have No Passions,
but because they have Cultivated their Understandings.
The treasures of Heaven are not Negations of Passion,
but Realities of Intellect, from which all the Passions Emanate
Uncurbed in their Eternal Glory
— William Blake

SAMPLE TESTIMONIALS

Whether you think you already know what your passion is or not – there is so much insight and life enhancement to be gained from taking this incredible seminar! Yasuhiko is a true Zen-master in the way he skillfully brings each participant to a much deeper, and very importantly, applicable understanding of what really fulfills him or her. His brilliant method of questioning allowed me access to vantage points regarding my own life that I had never considered. As a result, I came away with a new vision – one that inspires me to replace my old, energy-stealing behaviors with daily actions that work towards achieving what matters most to me. Thank you, Yasuhiko and Mira!
—Lou Gideon, Asheville, NC

This was a unique gift and great honor to be around one of the greatest humans that our Planet hosts in our times, aka Yasuhiko, and benefit from his sharing and guidance in a unique program that kept us 'at the edge of reason' and of our limitations, enabling us to transcend them in a way of no return! What made it even more 'immanently effective' was sharing it with other people. We all were immersed deeply into our inner mysteries in a participatory (and strong bonding) process through which Yasuhiko's magic engaged us all to support each other's self-discovery. PURE BLISS! So, YES - I want more of this and soon! ... and I cannot miss the chance to get to know my own self deeply in the most fascinating process imaginable. I am sad for anyone who will miss this experience... I personally would never invoke any excuse for missing this.
— Professor Mihaela Ulieru, Ph.D., North Carolina

The passion workshop is a truly remarkable experience leading to the exposure and elimination of self imposed and conditioned barriers that stand in the way of authentic self expression. And the beauty of it is that you do the work yourself with the support and encouragement from all participants and the the presence of Yasuhhiko Genku Kimura who prompts you to look deeper and beyond what you think you know. It is when you are willing to enter into the realm of what you don't know where the answer to a question is found. And you find a more authentic you.
— Johan B. Holm, New York

The Passion Workshop is an experience each human being must (yes, must!!!) have, since it is a deep trip, conducted by the brilliant Yasuhiko Genku Kimura, to what we have the best in us. With this trip we discover who we are and consequently what we have to do to live a meaningful life! And this has an exponential result, because as we discover and understand our authentic self expression it becomes clear what is our role in the world, we activate all our potential and end up making difference not only in our lives but in the world as a whole. And this experience is enhanced by the help, patience, and love of each participant. Unforgettable!
— Ana Paula C. dos Santos, São Paulo

In this exceptional workshop, I continuously saw Yasuhiko's rare gift of being able to hear what was not said, and with discernment made audible which was right in the moment. Because of his high level of consciousness, his deep respect and understanding of the process where we as participants were at any given time, he NEVER trespassed any boundaries. This made for an utmost safe environment for expression and self-discovery, with the support of a loving group synergy. Where we started as individuals, each in our own worlds, we processed towards recognizing and celebrating each other's passion and longing for making a contribution to humanity.

If you are looking to discover who you truly are, beyond the veil of what we allow the mundane world to masquerade us with, and if you really want to find out what your true passion is, and receive practical tools to implement a fulfilling contribution to this world, then this workshop is definitely for you!

THE PASSION WORKSHOP
Phase II – DEVELOPMENT

Passion is the deepest desire of your soul in the realization of your singular cosmic destiny and of your own unique evolutionary possibility. To discover your Passion and to live an Impassioned Life is vital for your happiness, joy, and fulfillment. Also it is central for your spiritual evolution, because your Passion guides you in your evolutionary journey. The Passion Workshop is designed for you to discover your passion, to manifest your vision, and to fulfill your mission and meaning in life.

The Passion Workshop consists of three distinct phases:

  1. Phase One – Discovery: You discover your soul’s passion.
  2. Phase Two – Development: You learn a whole set of Principles of Manifestation with which you can manifest and actualize your vision and intention arising from your passion.
  3. Phase Three – Fulfillment: You learn real-life practice of the Principles of Manifestation.

Through Phase One of The Passion Workshop you have found your passion, direction, and purpose. The question is: How do you sustain creative action to achieve it, today, tomorrow, and long into the future?

The Passion Workshop Phase Two will teach you the entire set of the Principles of Manifestation and provide you with a complete integrated instruction as to how to use these powerful principles.

The Principles of Manifestation is the most comprehensive and integrative presentation of what is often called the Law of Attraction. (The reason that people are unable to manifest their intention after studying the Law of Attraction is because the set of “laws” presented is partial, fragmented, and therefore not whole).

Knowledge is power. Your knowledge of the complete set of the Principle of Manifestation gives you power with which to move your destiny toward its fulfillment. You will become the author of your own life, your own destiny, independent of your circumstance.

As a result, you will be able to turn your day-to-day life into the expression of your passion and your day-to-day action into your unique path of vision-purpose manifestation.

The Passion Workshop Phase II – Development is a two full-day seminar.

Requirement: Completion of the The Passion Workshop, Phase I

THE PASSION WORKSHOPS: Phase II is a two full-day interactive seminar led by Yasuhiko Genku Kimura and Mira Joy Vivant (see details below).
