A Japanese-inspired guide to living a happier, more fulfilled life.
Japonisme explores the Japanese art of finding contentment and
includes practical tips and tricks to live a happier, healthier,
more thoughtful life. 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.
