Ikigai is a Japanese method that helps you to have a meaningful life and a job that makes you happy. The method started in Japan and now millions of people around the world are applying it to their lives. Find out for yourself:


Claim a job that gives you daily energy, that when you work you feel good. If you don't want to live waiting for the next weekend to feel joy and peace of mind then you need to discover your Ikigai..


A job that you do efficiently and gets the desired results. It can also be a job that you have an aptitude for and with training and practice you can do it extremely well.


It is a job through which you can make a direct or indirect positive impact on society or even on a specific social group, i.e. a job that makes the world a better place.


It's a job that rewards you with a combination of benefits you desire. It can be monetary rewards, moral rewards, recognition, or something else that makes you happy.


What is the Target?

Our goal is to discover your ikigai on a professional and personal level. We are human and we have much more than our profession, we have our family, relationships, friends, hobbies, interests and goals. The ikigai package is designed in such a way that we take into account all the "systems" of a human being.

Is it for you?

The programme is addressed to people who either want to make a career change, or know their options and want to decide which one to follow, or to people who want to learn more about themselves by having a clear vision and goals they want to achieve in their lives. It is especially suggested to people who have gained experience in their lives.

How long does it last?

Usually, the programme lasts 2 months in total. Specifically, we do 1 session per week in most cases, in between the person attending ikigai needs to complete 1-2 exercises until the next session. The ikigai calls are 60-90 minutes long and the time needed for the exercises is usually 30-60 minutes per exercise.

In addition, you will also have the opportunity to get to know your personal counsellor in order to start building a trusting relationship.

Finding and prioritizing values and motivation | Duration: 60-90 minutes

Personal values and motivation play a crucial role in order to approach our Ikigai as they influence the goals we set, our relationships and our daily behaviors. In this session we will identify and analyze your values and motivations that motivate you to achieve your goals. 

Desired working conditions and professional interests | Duration: 60-90 minutes

In this session we will define the characteristics you would like your work to have in order to meet your needs and make you happy both personally and professionally. In addition, by outlining the ideal working conditions we will also talk about the interests you have in your life and how you can make the most of them personally and professionally. At the end of the session we will have an Owiwi assessment of your personal skills.

SWOT Analysis (Strengths - Weaknesses, Opportunities - Threats) | Duration: 60-90 minutes

Personal & Professional goals | Duration: 60-90 minutes

Goals are essential in our lives because they keep us alert and focused on what we are trying to achieve, we feel responsible to ourselves not to give up, they determine our actions and of course they develop us. It is important to set both personal and professional goals. In this session we will discuss what criteria we use to set goals and then what methodologies we use to commit to and achieve them.

Strategic plan for the next steps | Duration: 60-90 minutes

Even if we have found our calling, our passion, what we love to do, what the world needs, what we can tap into to be rewarded for our work... nothing matters if we don't have a strategic plan for the next steps. Your personal advisor will help you put your thinking in order and together you can see what your next actions are in the short and long term, so you can have a meaningful life and a job that makes you happy and fulfilled.

Program review and questions | Duration: 60 minutes

Our program ends here but your journey to seek and achieve your Ikigai has just begun. In this free session we will review the program and address questions and reflections.
