Publisher's Summary

Learn to make every moment a once-in-a-lifetime experience with this definitive guide to the Japanese art of ichigo ichie, from the best-selling authors of Ikigai

Every moment in our life happens only once, and if we let it slip away, we lose it forever - an idea captured by the Japanese phrase ichigo ichie. Often spoken in Japan when greeting someone or saying goodbye, to convey that the encounter is unique and special, it is a tenet of Zen Buddhism and is attributed to a 16th-century master of the Japanese tea ceremony, or 'ceremony of attention', whose intricate rituals compel us to focus on the present moment. 

The Book of Ichigo-Ichie: The Art of Making the Most of Every Moment, the Japanese Way is an inspirational work which shows us how to:

  • Free ourselves from the past and the future and to make each moment something unique.
  • Bring into our lives the Zen that Steve Jobs learned from a Japanese master, and which was key to his success.
  • Turn coincidences into a tool for conscious magic.
  • Create unforgettable moments in professional and personal circles.
  • Improve our relationships with a new type of mindfulness.
  • Open the floodgates to the flow of creativity whenever we need it.

The Book of Ichigo Ichie will help you find your ikigai.

The best book I’ve ever came across.

It’s a must read as I never used to read books but this book changed my perception about books.
I was struggling a lot with my past, career and so my life and I knew that past can never be your present but couldn’t understand until I read this book.because then I understood the art of making the most of every moment and that’s Ichigo Ichie.

best life book

this book has soul which can't be expressed in words. being a businessman doing majority of business in japan, I never figured these life teachings there. time flies by. people are modernizing and forgetting the way of living.

Mindfulness as a craft

Mindfulness has become such a trend that it risks losing its ability to engage people and transform lives. I love that this book deliberately avoids leaning on the term and instead seeks to teach the reader the art of living in the present moment. It has completely shifted my perspective on the subject and I am finding myself consciously entering interactions with a sense of ichigo ichie and striving to make the most of each moment as it unfolds. Highly recommended.

An ichigo ichie experience itself

What a pleasure it was to listen to this book. Being of Japanese background, I felt very close to my roots and was reminded of how important it is to never loose connection with our spiritual way of facing life. It took me away from everyday mundane circumstances and fulfilled me with joy, like the light breeze of ocean on a pleasant summer afternoon. I will listen to it again and recommend to anyone in need of reconnecting with their core.
