IKIGAI … The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life

Speaker: Jamie Christensen

Jamie Christensen is a long-time Kerikeri local, having returned to Northland 18 months ago after over a decade of study and travel. Her business, Bloom Media, is a boutique design & marketing agency with clients all over the world. 

Jamie is going to share her ‘love story’ about finding her ikigai. Ikigai is a beautiful Japanese concept that means “a reason for being”. Translated to English, it roughly means “the reason for which you wake up in the morning”.

Her story (and struggle!) of five years of world travel and kitesurfing, in some of the worlds more remote deserts, marriage (then divorce!) and how she built her business while on the road. Her love story is not about love at all. It’s about what happens when you grab hold of opportunities, and find your ikigai.
