About Fumie Mune


Fumie Mune, is a Zen artist as well as the founder of Herb yoga which is a stream of yoga practiced widely in Japan.

Fumie Mune uses her deep understanding of Japanese Zen art to integrate her perception of body, life and world into one structure.

Mune creates yoga-meditation tools for new era and her artworks to bring about revolution in the mass consumption society.

Mune also challenges the divide between art pieces and practical goods, because she points out the unspoken premise in Zen that all Zen art pieces such as Zen garden, Zen calligraphy, Zen drawing have been made for practical use to deepen one’s meditation and spirituality.

Following the Zen tradition, Mune’s Zen art pieces are made to practical use so that one can absorb the essence of her art with 6 senses.
