KINTSUGI :(Japanese) "to repair with gold"
The art of repairing pottery with gold lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.
We all experience struggles and encounter times when we may feel broken, however it is these experiences that can remind us of our innate strength and resilience and provide us with the opportunity to grow. In fact, this tradition of reflecting on our wounds is one that transcends culture. For example, the poet Rumi advised "Don't turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you.”
