Mr. Kimura and Mrs. Mira Joy Vivant


Two Stars in the Firmament
Spiritual Enlightenment

Mr. Kimura elegantly synthesizes Eastern and Western philosophies
in his writings and seminars, and makes profound philosophical
thinking practically available to people. He does not so much teach particular sets of philosophical concepts or theories but goes inside the heart-mind of people to enable their self-discovery by provoking authentic, original, and creative thinking.

Mr. Kimura gives lectures and offers seminars and courses around the United States, Japan, and Europe. His presentations have been acclaimed for their deeply thought-provoking approach, brilliant originality, and profound transformational power.

Mr. Kimura lives in the upper eastside of Manhattan sharing life with Ms. Mira Joy Vivant, a brilliant and creative thinkerand visionary. Ms. Vivant has developed her own philosophy “joyology” - the art and science of living a truly joyful life.

Ms. Vivant is a passionate proponent of the life philosophy that
every human being has not only the right but also the responsibility
to pursue and attain the highest fulfillment of his or her
dreams and visions. Her greatest contribution to the human spirit
is her powerful state of happiness and joy, which is so infectious that people start experiencing joy just by being in her presence.
Mr. Kimura’s prominent friends, clients, and admirers are legion.
Here are some testimonials:

Lin-Marie Evola-Smidt, Founder of the Peace Angels Project, New York:During time periods in history, there are always philosophers and great thinkers who provoke and prod the human condition to go to a higher level of our consciousness. It is critical that we remember who we are and what qualities bring us higher to manifest the best of humanity. I am honored to be in the presence of Yasuhiko Genku Kimura. My mind is hungry to be filled with thoughts of
profound essence.

Mark Pecen, Ph.D., MBA, Vice President of Advance Technologies,
Research in Motion ((RIM)), Waterloo, Ontario:
Yasuhiko Genku Kimura is an expert at bringing far-reaching thinkers
together across multiple disciplines and cultures. He is an amazingly
talented translator of Eastern thought into a form that the western mind can understand. My creative teams and I have greatly benefited from his highly stimulating applied philosophy.

Audrey Kitagawa, J.D., Special Advisor to the World Federation of United Nations Associations, Hawaii, New York:
Yasuhiko Genku Kimura’s dazzling brilliance and ability to articulate
perennial wisdom for our time propels us to a higher world of thinking and understanding. A unique and gifted thinker who is moving us into the new frontiers of global awakening and transformation, Yasuhiko is someone who commands our attention.
