The Japanese art of Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) literally meaning “golden repair,” involves filling the cracks of broken pottery with precious metal – dusted lacquer, most often, gold. The concept behind the art is a belief that breaks and repairs contribute to the value increasing history of each piece. In other words, ‘the beauty is in the broken’. In comparison, our human experiences – failures, and injuries, when appropriately repaired, can also render us more beautiful and valuable. This course aims to strengthen the places broken by grief and loss by aiding the participants in identifying, describing, and processing unaddressed pain. The ultimate goal is to accomplish a level of healing from the injurious consequences of avoidance, such as: stress, health problems, depression, anxiety, anger problems, behavioral issues, and overall genuine unhappiness.
