We live in a world that teaches us to be hard. A world where we hide behind filters and sarcasm and never really state the truth: sometimes we come undone. The Kintsugi project is about finally shedding the person the world tells you to be and embracing the cracked, flawed, glorious person you really are.
Kintsugi is based on the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold and precious metal – the idea being that it is the flaws that make it beautiful, that make it art. This page is about seeing our own flaws and brokenness as exactly that – art.
It is from Kintsugi that my book was born, out of a need to write down the journey from ash to gold. The blog was created as a way to start a conversation – a safe place to not have it all together. This is a place for us to bring our broken places and learn to heal – the book will be something physical to reach out and touch when we are looking for a little light.
This is a rallying call to all the hidden places – a personal, and universal conversation about the secret hurts of all people.
It is an honour to take this love journey with you.
