“Ikigai is not the end but the beginning of the pursuit of a life worth living.”

The Ikigai Myth

Ikigai is a concept that many people believe involves doing something that you love, something you are good at, that the world needs, and that you can be paid for. The Venn Diagram below has been circulating for years, being picked up by coaches, business executives, and others to help find purpose in the workplace and our own lives.

While it is a helpful tool in personal development, it is not ikigai.

Ikigai - and our ikigai coaching - is much more than filling in a diagram. Uncovering and pursuing ikigai involves building your self-awareness, cultivating your inner potential, taking time to appreciate life’s simple joys, and surrounding yourself with people you love.

Ikigai is a philosophy of life.

This workshop made me want to continue with a more personalized and targeted session to continue to understand the ikigai philosophy. It also made me want to continue this work towards a more professional goal. Thank you Chloe for your kindness and your commitment!
For people who follow you on instagram, where there are plenty of tips distilled and plenty of content, coming to this workshop already felt familiar, it was a great feeling!


"I really appreciate Karly and the work we did together. She was patient and worked with me through things that I sometimes felt were overwhelming. She gave me a very personal experience and it never felt generic. Overall Karly really helped me achieve my goals and I had fun while doing it!"


Karly teaches and lives the power and depth of the Ikigai concept with knowledge and grace. Let her share this potent tool with you and guide you to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and joy.


I attended this workshop during a particularly intense period of transition in my personal life and career and found it incredibly valuable for clarifying sources of meaning and flow, as well as for identifying patterns that are not in alignment with my current values and development as an individual.
Karly was an amazing facilitator and I especially appreciated how she situated the concept of ikigai in its cultural context.


"I had a wonderful experience with Vibrant. I had four hours of coaching, and in such a short time I noticed significant changes in my outlook and confidence . Chloé is so caring, and you feel like you can confide in her without being judged and that feels really good."


I really enjoyed the workshop and learning about the Ikigai philosophy. It was straightforward and easy to understand and gave a clear structure of ways for me to connect with my purpose. It reinspired something in me. The facilitation by Karly was also really good. She was knowledgable, pleasant to listen to and easy to speak with. I felt comfortable sharing my feelings and experiences with her.


"I took the "Awaken Your Ikigai" workshop and I highly recommend it! I didn't know much about this Japanese philosophy and Chloe was able to explain to us what the ikigai philosophy was in a simple and insightful way. In just 2 hours, I have already acquired tools that will allow me to build my future projects, motivate myself and face changes with serenity. Chloe is pleasant, motivating and benevolent, you feel confident! This made me very eager to follow the 1:1 coaching program to move forward on my life's path, in a thoughtful and accompanied way."


"The Ikigai workshop "Awaken Your Ikigai" was so enlightening for me. The exercises that Karly walked us through really tapped into something for me personally and opened my brain and heart in a way I didn't know I had the capacity for! The philosophy is so refreshing and raw that it really can help anyone narrow down (or find!) the certain things in life to look forward to, to be grateful for, and to be excited about as well as realign their ship if they are feeling off-course! I enjoyed it so much that I talked about what I learned in the workshop to my therapist and she got so excited to learn about it too. Sharing the goodness."


A huge thank you!

I came to the "Awaken your Ikigai" workshop not knowing necessarily where it would lead me. Chloe knew right away how to surround me with kindness and guide me step by step towards awareness, reflections on my life and my habits through several exercises, explanations and very enriching discussions. During these 2 hours, you will become aware of the things that animate your life and leave this workshop boosted with the desire to deepen everything you have seen with Chloé. Such an awakening, a REAL one!


"Thank you so much for hosting our Wellness Workshop today - It was absolutely incredible and I loved the 3 ingredients concept you shared, I took a lot of notes and you got me contemplating all of those questions - we are so appreciative of you! Thank you for sharing your knowledge, expertise, and passion with our community, so many women are going to be impacted by it!
