We live in a dynamic world which challenges us on all fronts. We have social roles that we play every day (like being a parent, a spouse, a boss, a friend etc). We have expectations as well as our own ambitions. And we also have our personal traits. How do we balance our masculine and feminine energy? How do we reach our life goals, stay competitive and at the same time remain calm, kind and overall a happy being? In this one hour online talk we will look for answers in Japanese wisdom! We will explore Japanese art and examine how we can embrace and cherish both life forces in our life. We will also study Japanese Samurai to appreciate their approach, how to be a warrior during times of war and how to show compassion, care and civilian duty during times of peace.
Join us in this quest for a balanced, fulfilled life where we learn to use both masculine and feminine energy from Japanese art and lifestyle.
