Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu, PhD

Author

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 United States, Japan, and other parts of Asia integrates his transcultural life experience and training in East Asian medicine in Japan and clinical psychology at Harvard University.

He was a professor at and director of the International Center at the University of Tokyo, and at Stanford University he is cofounder of LifeWorks, where he teaches diverse Heartfulness courses in comparative studies in race and ethnicity and health and human performance. Author of books in Japanese and English, his latest is From Mindfulness to Heartfulness: Transforming Self and Society with Compassion (forthcoming: January 2018).
