Andy Couturier: A Different Kind of Luxury: Japanese Lessons in Simple Living and Inner Abundance

Head's up from KJ:  New book that explores the kind of quality of life that many people in Japan (especially eco-peacebuilders) already maintain and support:
Andy Couturier’s A Different Kind of Luxury: Japanese Lessons in Simple Living and Inner Abundance has just been published by Stone Bridge Press.

"Raised in the tumult of Japan’s industrial powerhouse, the eleven men and women profiled in A Different Kind of Luxury have all made the transition to sustainable, deeply fulfilling lives in the mountains of Japan.

Based on Andy Couturier's popular articles in The Japan Times, this lushly-designed volume is a treasure chest of stories about real people who have created an abundance of time for contemplation, connecting with nature, and contributing to their communities."
