Kintsukuroi is a Japanese word that literally means “golden repair.” It refers to fixing cracked pottery with lacquer blended with actual gold or silver. Metaphorically, it suggests something may become more beautiful and valuable after it’s broken. The wounds and healing of the wounds are integral parts, not shameful distortions to be disguised or hidden. Does that sound like your current experience? Call this the kintsukuroi phase of your cycle.
