 What is the difference between the Seiri-Shuno Advisor Level 2 and the Sawa Method Advisor Course?

 The contents are the same as the Japanese ones.  

We added several works called “Sharing Time” to make the seminar more interactive.  In advantage of taking the course from home, participants do some works in addition to three exercises.  

They have an opportunity of thinking about why they have certain things.  It will be fun for them to share their thoughts on their own items and some of their experiences regarding their possessions.


 What is the purpose of this course?  What can I do after taking this course?

 More than 136,000 people have taken this course in Japan.  Many participants find why they fail to tidy up their home by learning the Organizing / Seiri-Shuno theory.  

This is for organizing their own home and office.


 Please tell me about an advanced course followed by the Sawa Method Advisor Course.

AWe have the Seiri-Shuno Advisor Level 1 course to be a professional “Seiri-Shuno” advisor followed by the Level 2 or the Sawa Method Advisor Course in Japan.


So far, we only conduct the Seiri-Shuno Advisor Level 1 course in Japanese with a Chinese translator.  However, due to COVID-19, scheduled courses in Japan for foreigners were canceled in 2020.

We have not prepared the Seiri-Shuno Advisor Level 1 course in English yet.

When the Seiri-Shuno Advisor Level 1 is ready, we will announce it on the website.


If you are interested, we will send you a notification by email.
