In this episode of the Ikigai Podcast podcast, I speak with author, poet, and one of the leading authorities on Japanese Psychology, Gregg Krech.
Gregg Krech is the author of several books including the award-winning book Naikan: Gratitude, Grace and The Japanese Art of Self Reflection, The Art of Taking Action - Lesson From Japanese Psychology and Tunneling for Sunlight: Twenty-One Maxims of Living Wisdom from Buddhism and Japanese Psychology to Cope with Difficult Times.
Along with his wife Linda, Gregg is the founder of The ToDoInstitute.org, a non-profit centre in Vermont that uses Japanese Psychology as an alternative to traditional Western approaches to psychology. These methods include Naikan Therapy, Morita Therapy and Kaizen.
Gregg's work supports a blend of the psychological, the spiritual and the practical based on values such as purpose, gratitude, mindfulness, compassion and constructive action.
Over the past 30 years, Gregg has introduced Japanese Psychology to more than 10,000 people through his workshops and online courses.
