THE JOY OF WABI-SABI

<>

The phrase wabi-sabi is Japanese for the art of appreciating beauty in the 'naturally imperfect world’. According to those in the know, it’s about to get its moment in the limelight. The stars are all over it (if it’s good enough for will.i.am...) touting it as the secret to living a less stressed out life.

It stems from the Zen Bhuddism and its peaceful moments of contemplation such as the tea ceremony – where handmade bowls irregularly shaped, with deliberately uneven glaze and cracks form part of the process.

The message is, to slow down and savour the simple things.
