Kintsugi and healing...
« on: March 06, 2016, 07:12:36 PM »
This may strike some as unusual, at first. An old Japanese philosophy directly relevant to cptsd healing/recovery work? I found this little 4 minute video to be just that.

What I love about this is discovering a new beauty within the 'damage'...whether repairing pottery or trying to fix one's shattered life; and seeing it for its wholeness despite what we thought were our  flaws, finding that even our worst scars can contain hidden beauty.

... also a great album from Death Cab for Cutie

Kintsugi 

I have found many of their songs speak to me very deeply and may also to many on this site

from the song You've Haunted Me All My Life ...
"There was a storm when i was just a kid, that stripped the last coat of innocence."
