InterCultural Word of the Week! Komorebi 木漏れ日

Dom Tidey EuRA C.O.O.

Read on our website

The Japanese have an extraordinary connection to nature and have developed a wonderful vocabulary to describe it.  The incorporation of the natural environment into the man-made world is a fundamental part of the aesthetic of the country, from the practice of Ikebana to the concept of the Zen Garden.  Komorebi is broken into the interpretation of three characters; 木 means tree, 漏 means escape, 日 is sun.  Komorebi is the interplay between the light of the sun and leaves and the ground, a curtain of light seen in the forest. 

Naturnaher Buchenwald, Sonnenstrahlen brechen durch Morgennebel
