Sara Vetter and I are finally home in San Francisco after a long flight returning from Tokyo, Japan. We spent six fabulous days in Tokyo and Kyoto working with a remarkable Japanese author— Ken Honda —who has written more than 100 books and is well-respected throughout Japan.
Ken invited me to co-lead three events with him for his vast constituency of students and followers. There was an intimate VIP event for 45 people, a public event with more than 1,000 people and an all day workshop for 350 participants.
All of the events were oriented around finding your life purpose, transforming your relationship with money, and living a fulfilling life.
Ken’s team produced impeccable events and the extraordinary Japanese hospitality and excellence was a hallmark of everything we did together.
Additionally, we held an all day seminar for the Japanese counterpart of the Pachamama Alliance, “Seven Generations”, which was a wonderful day-long workshop titled, “Change the Dream, Change the Game, Change the World”. I co-facilitated the event with Hide Enomoto, the man who many years ago brought the work of Pachamama Alliance to Japan. That event was also a great success with more than 180 people engaged powerfully in becoming more active in making a difference in the world.
Sara Vetter and I also had the beautiful opportunity and honor of having a private meeting with Mrs. Akie Abe, the First Lady of Japan and wife of the Prime Minister.
After all the events were complete, Ken Honda and his 18 year old daughter, Hana, took Sara and me on a two-day overnight adventure to exquisite Kyoto, the spiritual capital of Japan.
All six days were productive, inspiring and magical and we are filled with gratitude and admiration for the people of Japan and the opportunity to share the work of the Soul of Money Institute and the Pachamama Alliance with so many remarkable people.
The Soul of Money book has been published in Japanese and sold out completely during our week in Japan.
