Wabi-sabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional....

MEDITATIVE + A CELEBRATION

The book has many stand alone moments which remain in the mind long after the words have been read, like wabi sabi. I am in awe with the transformation and dedication and place in time this book takes.

Great!

Brilliant and thoroughly mind opening. A great insight into the quiet and sleepy world which lies between the "going to and coming from"
