WANT TO COACH THE IKIGAI CONCEPT?
Ikigai is a greatly misunderstood concept that millions of people believe involves doing something that you love, that you are good at, that the world needs and that you can be paid for. This is not Ikigai.
Ikigai is a life philosophy involving daily rituals, living your values, building intimate relationships, fulfilling your life roles and pursuing a life goal with a healthy sense of urgency.
If you are a coach, psychologist or educator then ikigai is a tool that you can use to help your clients live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
A concept relatable to eudaemonia and existential positive psychology, ikigai offers you a way to guide others to live with motivation and resilience in times of hardship, opening them up to the path of self-actualisation.

WHAT IS IKIGAI?
'Ikigai translated into English as ‘life purpose’ sounds quite formidable, but ikigai need not be the one overriding purpose of a person’s life. In fact, the word life aligns more with daily life. In other words, ikigai can be about the joy a person finds living day-to-day, without which their life as a whole would not be a happy one.' – Akihiro Hasegawa (Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist)
