kintsugi golden repair



Feeling the pull and the ache of a rapidly shifting planet ~

Kintsugi is a Japanese word meaning “golden repair”. In a multitude of ways I apply this practice symbolically to represent the repairing of the cracks and fissures of our culture and of our planet. A scar is not only the site of injury but more importantly a place of healing.

“Ritual creates a second flow of events ~ and we can enter that stream or not, as we wish. The idea of ritual is strange to our ears; it says that if something is healed in the other world, something is healed in this world also….”
