Ikigai & Other Japanese Words to Live By, Hardback Book

Ikigai & Other Japanese Words to Live By Hardback

Description

Introducing and explaining some of the most poignant Japanese words, Wabi-Sabi is a lifestyle as well as a language book.

From the wistful poetry of mono-no-aware, a word that asks us to recognize the bittersweet transience of all things, to the quiet harmony of wa, which knits together all of society's structures, this book is an introduction to the intricacies and value of Japanese phrases and concepts.

It hopes to inspire you to incorporate these words into your own lifestyle and adopt a more mindful attitude to life's stresses, seeking meaning beyond materialism. In addition to over 40 `words to live by', Wabi-Sabi features musings on the place of beauty, community, time and nature in Japanese thought, teaching mindfulness by way of compelling haikus, and illus trated by Michael Kenna's reflective photography throughout.
