Biography

Dr. Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu balances Eastern and Western wisdom and science in Heartfulness–a way of living with mindfulness, compassion, and responsibility.

His practice of designing healing communities in the U.S., Japan, and other parts of Asia integrates his transcultural life experience and training in East Asian medicine in Japan and clinical psychology at Harvard.

He was professor and director of the International Center at the University of Tokyo and at Stanford is co-founder of LifeWorks, teaching diverse Heartfulness courses in Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity and Health & Human Performance. Author of books in Japanese and English, his latest is From Mindfulness to Heartfulness: Transforming Self and Society with Compassion (January 2018).
