Full Description
“Kintsugi, which translates as ‘golden joinery,’ is the latest lifestyle trend promising to transform our lives.” —the Telegraph
Cultivate inner strength and rebuild your life with the ancient principles of kintsugi.
When we lose a person we love, a job, or our health, it can feel like a precious piece of ourselves falling to the ground and shattering. But in the Japanese art of kintsugi, that’s where the creation of beauty begins—in the delicate re-joining and mending of shards with loving attention. Psychologist Tomás Navarro encourages us to approach our lives in the same way.
Everyone faces suffering, but how we engage with our troubles and heal our emotional wounds can make all the difference. Rather than conceal our repairs, what if we embraced them—and looked to them as proof of our strength?
With Kintsugi, Navarro presents a sensitive and contemplative approach to the suffering that he’s seen in his professional practice and in his own life. His reflections help us to engage with our tragedies and challenges—transmuting them into sources of strength. Through gentle stories, practices, and insights, readers gain deeper perspective and courage in the face of life’s inevitable crises, heartbreaks, and losses.
