Today I have a delightful chat with British-Japanese author, Erin Niimi Longhurst, who shares her insights into aspects of Japanese culture that bring contentment and good health.
Erin is the author of two books I greatly admire. The first, “Japonisme”* explores the Japanese traditions and practices such as wabi-sabi, appreciating the transient nature of life, that contribute to living well. Erin's second book, “Omoiyari, the Japanese art of compassion”, is about finding joy in your own life by brining about happiness in the lives of others. The books are not only beautifully presented with gorgeous illustrations but are really practical too.
*Japonisme is a French term to describe the influence of Japanese art, culture and design on European art, especially on impressionism. In relation to Erin’s book, the term Japonisme is used more broadly to refer to an admiration and appreciation of Japanese culture, style and traditions.
Enjoy this episode with a cup of green tea!
