‘Inemuri’ is the path to enlightenment, Eamon
IN JAPANESE corporate culture, there’s a concept called ‘inemuri’, or “sleeping while present”. You can doze off in a meeting, at a park or at a restaurant, and it is socially acceptable to nap while at work!
Its value is seen in energising the brain and helping the individual become more relaxed and composed, thereby enabling him or her to contribute in a more meaningful and insightful way.
Eamon Ryan should consider the significant merits of embracing inemuri and ‘wabi sabi’
– a worldview centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection – and not be apologetic in the slightest.
We await profound insights of wisdom and enlightenment and wish him and his colleagues well on their trip into the unknown! Peadar O’Murchu
