Regular price $18.95
This first accessible guide to nagomi shows readers craving calm (or fighting burnout) a path to greater equanimity of mind

In The Way of Nagomi, neuroscientist Ken Mogi shows us how life’s ups and downs—like calm and stress, or fortune and misfortune—must coexist to create the harmony we deserve. He teaches that nagomi is “a sense of ease, emotional balance, well-being, and calmness”—and it is achieved through the balance of opposite forces. Once we have accepted this first step, we can learn to:
  • Maintain happy relationships, even when there’s disagreement.
  • Try new things while staying true to ourselves.
  • Strike a harmonious balance and achieve calm.
Both philosophical and practical, this book weaves the art of nagomi through all areas of life. When cooking, nagomi is a meal with a blend of ingredients; in relationships, nagomi is quality communication; and during cherry blossom season, nagomi is the celebration of beauty and impermanence—and a reminder of the preciousness of life. From health and diet to relationships and work, The Way of Nagomi shows us how to find balance in everything we do.
