ZenIT Talk @ UC Berkeley

ZenIT: Mindful Work through Zen Meditation and Collaboration

In this session, Amil Khanzada, former UC Berkeley Computer Science alumnus now indicted as Evolution Ambassador of Eiheiji Town in Japan, will talk about ZenIT, a new movement to define a style of working that is highly productive *and* peaceful, by combining Japanese Soto Zen meditation and Silicon Valley software development pairing/collaboration principles.

The movement is based in Eiheiji Town, which sits in the happiest region of Japan and houses the head temple for Soto Zen with over 15,000 temples worldwide.

The ZenIT team will be running a free pilot program in Japan until March 2019, so we are looking for:
- software developers interested in joining the pilot
- students interested in writing a research paper (increase productivity, mindfulness, well-being, happiness, etc.)
