If you are looking for an antidote to our fast-paced and consumption-driven world, this is the book for you. Wabi Sabi: Japanese Wisdom for a Perfectly Imperfect Life by Beth Kempton brings a whole new way of looking at the world inspired by centuries old Japanese wisdom.
In this book, Beth Kempton brings a vital ancient wisdom to life to inspire our modern life and applies the principles of wabi sabi to help you transform every area of your life, and find happiness right where you are.
Wabi sabi (“wah-bi sah-bi”) is a captivating concept from Japanese aesthetics, which helps us to see beauty in imperfection, appreciate simplicity and accept the transient nature of all things. With roots in zen and the way of tea, the timeless wisdom of wabi sabi is more relevant than ever for modern life, as we search for new ways to approach life's challenges and seek meaning beyond materialism.
Wabi sabi will encourage you to slow down, reconnect with nature, and be gentler on yourself. It will help you simplify everything, and concentrate on what really matters. From honouring the rhythm of the seasons to creating a welcoming home, from reframing failure to ageing with grace, wabi sabi will teach you to find more joy and inspiration throughout your perfectly imperfect life.
