In Wabi Sabi, Diane Durston presents a collection of reflections, along with classic poetry and verse from both Eastern and Western traditions, that captures the wabi sabi moment and inspires you to do the same. With “slow living” as the newest incarnation of the simplicity movement, the search for fresh inspiration on ways to live a more authentic life is as pressing as ever. Turning to Eastern traditions, people are discovering the Japanese concept of wabi sabi.
The perfect antidote to today's frenzied, consumer-oriented culture, wabi sabi encourages slowing down, living modestly, and appreciating the natural and imperfect aspect of material culture. While defying definition, wabi sabi is best expressed in brief, evocative bites.
