やましたひでこさんの『断捨離』セミナーに行きました。10月7日（日）ロス郊外トーレンス市のダブルツリーインホテルにて午前10時から午後12時まで開催され、200名以上の参加者が居ました。 "Danshari" Organizing seminar by Hideko Yamashita was held on Oct.7, 2012 from 10 am to 12 pm at Double Tree Inn Hotel in Torrance, a suburb of Los Angeles. There were more than 200 attendants.
断捨離 Danshari – “de-clutter.” The three kanji in this compound mean “refuse – throw away – separate.” Self-help author Hideko Yamashita, drawing on yoga philosophy, promotes a three-step system for de-cluttering one’s life (both physical and mental) in Japan: 1) refuse to bring unnecessary new possessions into your life; 2) throw away existing clutter in your living space; and 3) separate from a desire for material possessions.
本にサインしていただきました。 I got her autograph on her book. During her 90 minute seminar, she explained "facing the cluttered things is facing yourself and your attachment," "Danshari, De-clutter, is organizing your thoughts," "Looking at the relationships with the cluttered things and yourself," "the relationship between you and current cluttered things, " and "How to face your innerself" in details with easy to understand examples. A 30 minute Q&A session followed.
Danshari refers not just to physical clutter, but also to mental and emotional clutter. It holds the promise that once you’ve disposed of the excess and the unnecessary, you’ll have the space, time, and freedom to live more fully. You will only have things you like and you need.
What will you do, when you invite somebody important to you to your house?
You will clean up your house, use expensive tea cups, silver wears, and plates, and entertain that guest. The guest feels he or she was welcomed.
Please do entertain yourself the same way.
