Drawing on Eastern spiritual and psychological traditions, Naikan is a structured method of reflecting on one’s life, one’s relationships with others and the impact we are having on the world around us. Through Naikan we develop a natural and profound sense of gratitude for blessings bestowed on us by others and a healthy desire to find meaning in our life and inspiration to contribute to the happiness and welfare of others. This collection of essays, parables and inspirational stories explains what Naikan is and how it can be applied and practiced regularly as a personal method of self-reflection.
