What is your ikigai (purpose)? How do you practice mindfulness in the unpredictability and chaos of everyday life?
From shinrinyoku (forest bathing), calligraphy, ikebana
(fl ower arranging) to tea ceremonies and their approach to
food, the Japanese have found contentment through traditions,philosophies, and the practice of art. This book shows how we can all incorporate aspects of Japonisme into our daily lives.
Enhance your lifestyle and enrich your mind by looking at life
through the lens of wabi-sabi (the transient nature of life),
kintsugi (repairing broken ceramics with gold) or kaizen
(habit-forming techniques), in an accessible, practical way.
