Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by filling the cracks with gold. Through this process, the repair and history become more valuable than disguising the breakage. Relationships work much in this same way. We become closer and more bonded through the process of learning to feel compassion, love and heal each other than from pretending to be perfect and not have any problems. We literally create something as priceless as gold and are practicing the truest art-form (life as art!) when we invest in each other in this way. We each become more beautiful for the process as we grow not alone, but together.
