In The Ikigai Journey, authors Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles take their international bestseller Ikigai: the Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life a step further by showing you how to find your own ikigai through practical exercises, such as employing new habits and stepping outside your comfort zone. Ikigai is the place where our passion (what we love), mission (what we hope to contribute), vocation (the gifts we have to offer the world) and profession (how our passions and talents can become a livelihood) converge, giving us a personal sense of meaning. This book helps you bring together all of these elements so that you can enjoy a balanced life. Our ikigai is very similar to change: it is a constant that transforms depending on which phase of life we are in. Our "reason for being" is not the same at 15 as it is at 70. Through three sections, this book helps you to accept and embrace that-acting as a tool to revolutionize your future by helping you to understand the past, so you can enjoy your present. Section 1-Journey Through the Future: Tokyo (a symbol of modernity and innovation) Section 2-Journey Through the Past: Kyoto (an ancient capital moored in tradition) Section 3-Journey Through the Present: Ise (an ancient shrine that is destroyed and rebuilt every twenty years) Japan has one of the longest life spans in the world, and the greatest number of centenarians-many of whom cite their strong sense of ikigai as the basis for their happiness and longevity. Unlike many "self-care" practices, which require setting aside time in an increasingly busy world, the ikigai method helps you find peace and fulfillment in your busy life.

This book, in a remarkable way, helps us do just that...very well worth acquiring and reading. Believe me, it WILL make you think and you WILL react." -Shakkei Journal "In their book, Garcia and Miralles take readers through 35 'stations' aimed at helping people find their ikigai...You don't need to go through all of the stations to find your ikigai.
