An Invitation for Inspiration

Join Studio 904 Founder, Kay Hirai on a seven-day art journey where you’ll make your own 2021 vision board!  Kaizen is a Japanese philosophy that values lifelong learning in small incremental steps. Translated, Ikigai means “a reason for being” or “a purpose to life.” Although seemingly different, ikigai is a concept that is very much in harmony with kaizen and its underlying process of continuous improvement.
According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai. It is the basic principle in their life and the reason they wake up every morning; it is their secret to living a long, happy, and fulfilling life. Finding ikigai requires a deep and often lengthy search into one’s soul. In Japanese culture, this search is regarded as the most important aspect of their life. It is the point where their passion, talent, and life’s mission intersect. Once there is a sense of purpose, people find that they are even more resilient to anything life throws at them throughout their lives. When it comes time to retire, most Japanese people are quite different from those in the Western culture in that few of them actually retire. Because their ikigai allows them to thrive in every situation, they find joy in keeping busy and remaining active throughout their lives.  After Kay’s visit to Okinawa, on the southern tip of Japan, she noticed things that distinguished their culture from others she had previously experienced. After years of studying Kaizen and ikigai philosophies, she eventually found her personal ikigai, which was helping people find their inner strength and the courage to live authentic, fulfilling, and contented lives.

In simple words, Kay says “My ikigai is to support and strengthen the mindset and the skills of the people around me.” Now, as we enter a new and hopeful year, she wants to share all that she has learned! Do you want to go on a journey with Kay to find and make your own Kaizen/Ikigai Vision Plan for 2021? Do you want to live a happier and more fulfilling life? If the answer to both of those questions is “Yes!” then this is the right course of action for you!  Click HERE to register for this FREE Seven-Day Art Journey. 

  • Tools needed to travel on this journey:  A sketch book or loose sheets of paper, pencil, pen, colored markers, coloring pencils, crayons or anything else you already have on hand. 
  • Kay will send out an email each morning from Monday, January 25 through Friday, January 29. On Sunday, January 31, there will be a live Zoom meeting from 11:00 a.m.-12:30pm to put the final touches on your vision board.  

As you travel this Seven-Day Art Journey with Kay, you will uncover your gifts, passion, values, acceptance, and purpose for being. You will experience less stress, get more done with what you enjoy doing, improve your relationships with others, and learn to open up a pathway to creativity and abundance. You will reflect, draw, and write! When you have completed your journey, you will have consolidated all of your discoveries and developed your Kaizen/Ikigai Vision Plan for 2021! Bring your enthusiasm, ideas, and join Kay!
