#105: The Surprising Lesson We Can All Learn From Japanese Pottery


What does Japanese pottery have to teach us about feeling flawed and being kind to ourselves? Quite a lot, as it turns out. In this episode, I'm sharing the philosophy behind Kintsukoroi or Kintsugi, a method of mending broken, chipped or scratched pottery that turns the object's flaws into a thing of beauty rather than trying to hide them. Keep listening to discover how we can apply this to our own experiences and lives.
