Nick: In this episode, I welcome back expert in leisure behavior science, Assistant Professor of Alberta University, Shintaro Kono. Thanks for coming back on to the podcast Shin.
Shin: Thank you Nick for having me again. It’s always my pleasure.
Nick: It’s great to chat to you again. And, this completes 3 part series. On episode 4, we discussed your research on valued experiences and how ikigai relates to leisure. On episode 17, we talked about experiencing ikigai in the context of interpersonal relationships.
Also Shin you also hosted a webinar as part of the Ikigai Tribe Coaching Certification program earlier this year, in which you shared your research and insight in today’s topic, houkousie. My coaching group really enjoyed that webinar with you. It was a great success.
On this episode, we will discuss houkousei – life directionality, where we can experience ikigai from associations with the past, present, and future.
