Golden Scars?- have you ever seen one of the Japanese Kintsugi pieces of pottery, like the one pictured above? Its where a cracked object is repaired with gold or some other precious metal.
Besides having a beautiful visual aesthetic, there is a deep philosophical principle evoked here as well. That is, in the process of fixing the object, it is made more valuable.
It's not much of a stretch to see a comparison between Kintsugi and the process of becoming a better person as we recover from stress, trauma, and other negative experiences and become better people for in doing so.
If you or someone you know is troubled by past experiences, a hypnosis session utilizing the Rewind Technique can provide significant relief. Learn more at The Rewind Technique page.
