A UK and USA bestseller, Wabi Sabi: Japanese wisdom for a perfectly imperfect life has been translated into 24 languages. In it I share life lessons inspired by ancient Japanese wisdom, gathered throughout my twenty-year love affair with Japan. 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. It has been recommended in TIME Magazine, British Vogue and Psychologies Magazine among others, and Apple USA ‘must listen’ (audiobook) and was described as ‘a truly transformational read’ by Sunday Times Style.
I am currently working on the follow up to Wabi Sabi. Called Kokoro, it will be out in October 2023.
