How It Works
A Linguistic immersion
In Japanese, English + a bit of Chinese.
From traditional knowledge in Zen Buddhism to modern lingo in the start-up world, from Japanese to English to Chinese, this meditation group has evolved into a linguistic journey for those who wishes to not just meditate, but to immerse oneself into this vibrant cultural interaction through the intricate translations between ideas and words, languages, as well as cultures.
This may just be perfect for those who are not just interested in Zen, but also in the intersection of languages and cultures.
Every series we delve deep into one topic. Every series is made up of 4 sessions. Each session is 45 mins, with two 'sits' of guided meditation by Zen monk Ito Toryo from Ryosokuin, and community dialogues in between the sits.
Each session is built upon the previous, and so does each series: week after week, creating an upward-cycle for our personal and social lives.
The EXP Cycle
Question + Re:define
Values + Vision
Actions + Measurements
Growth + Influence
Motivation / Empowerment / Communication / Teamwork / Leadership / Love / Ego / Resilience / Affirmation / Fear / Success
The Global Community
Our global community comes from 22 (and growing) different countries,
though we may have never met in person, we are here for each other.
I need to spend more time with myself to affirm. Unxe session is very important for me to reflect on myself. Thank you.
My Saturday's are brighter and more enriching since I joined UnXe. Thank you
Toryo-san’s questions on the last session made me realize the most important things and people at this moment. Thank you very much.
"Fear" was a very interesting topic, which actually changed my view on this topic as a whole.
I enjoyed every session, topic. An eye-opener and I learn about myself all the time. Thank you.

We hold our Global Meditation Community sessions as follow:
45 minutes / session - The community dialogues and guided meditations are both very meaningful parts of our practice. The Sessions will be conducted in both English and Japanese
1 session / week - So we have time to dwell into a topic, as well as for us to produce valuable contents sustainably, we run our sessions (basically) once a week, (almost) every Saturday so people with work schedule that makes it difficult to join during the week would also be able to attend.
4 sessions / course - Each course will be devoted to going deep on one topic that relates to our everyday lives.
We genuinely want to let as many people as possible be able to experience this series, thus we have decided that there would be no fixed fees, (recommended minimum per session 5 USD). We do ask for a pay-as-you-wish gesture to support our ongoing operating costs if the series is of value to your life!BOOK YOUR SEAT ↱

Team-building / Private Sessions
UnXe is perfect for training and team building.
Through UnXe, you can develop skills such as "listening", "deep-thinking", and "communication". It is the power that forms the basis of communication and teamwork. "Multi-faceted questions" from the perspective of Zen and entrepreneurship on one theme expand the possibilities of each person. By sharing the expanded possibilities within the team, we strengthen the individual axis while building up the respect for each other within the team.
