Yasuhiko Genku Kimura

BFF Co-founder & Co-facilitator

Yasuhiko Genku Kimura is a philosopher, systems theorist, corporate consultant, and advisor to leaders in business, science, and cultural organizations. A former Zen Buddhist priest and scholar from Japan, he has explored the amazing world of Eastern and Western philosophy, and the wondrous universe of science and consciousness.

After a life-long quest and exploration, he has come to enjoy the experience of wonderment and reverence at the gateless gate of the unknown and the ring-pass-not of the unknowable. Some of the trajectories of his quest and exploration have been captured in five published books, 100 plus essays and treatises, and as yet to be published manuscripts.

Yasuhiko was the Executive Director of The Twilight Club (The Society of Arts and Sciences), a venerable American tradition originally established in the late 19th century by Herbert Spencer, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Andrew Carnegie, and others, and succeeded in the 20th century by the likes of Thomas Watson, Sr., Walter Russell, and Alexis Carrel for the purpose of ethical uplifting of the world through the enrichment of culture.

Yasuhiko is the founder and director of Vision-In-Action, LLC, an innovative social, corporate, and business consultancy committed to developing and implementing creative and transformative solutions to the problems and challenges facing individuals, corporations, and humanity at large.
