Ikigai 生き甲斐

📮This beautiful interesting book is published now!

Congratulations!

I enjoyed working on the cover and the calligraphy pieces.

Highly recommended!

本日英国カイリブックス出版より” 生き甲斐 IKIGAI “という素敵な本が出版されました。カバーの絵と書、インデックスの書等させていただきました。とても興味深い本です、ぜひ手に取って読んでみてください。日本語の”IKIGAI”という言葉がそのまま世界で使われるようになる日も近いかもしれませんね。

” IKIGAI “- giving every day meaning and joy

by Yukari Mitsuhashi

‘The word ikigai is formed of two Japanese characters: iki, meaning life, and gai, meaning value or worth. Ikigai, then, is the value of life, or happiness in life. Put simply, it’s the reason you get up in the morning.’

Es sind dazu keine Vorkenntnisse notwendig, vom Anfänger bis zum Fortgeschrittenen kann jeder die Quellen von japanischer Kalligraphie entdecken und erlernen.

So erfahren Sie dabei auch, sich auf den eigenen Qi Fluss zu konzentrieren und diesen dann mit Pinsel und Tusche auf Papier zu bringen. Diese Erfahrung lässt Sie dem Alltags Gedankenstress entfliehen und zu einer inneren Ruhe finden.
