is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The word means ‘golden joinery’ in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken. Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them. What is a Kintsugi Hope Group? The stress and demands of modern living are taking their toll on our mental health and wellbeing. Author Brene? Brown believes that we live in ‘the most medicated, addicted, overweight cohort of history’. The majority of us may feel the affect, but don’t fully understand the cause. Many of us don’t even feel comfortable talking about our mental wellbeing. A Kintsugi Hope Group is a safe and supportive space for people who feel or have felt overwhelmed, providing tools for self-management in a facilitated peer mentoring style setting. It consists of a structured yet flexible series of 12 weeks of content, which includes group and individual activities designed to help participants to accept themselves, to understand their value and worth, and grow towards a more resilient and hopeful future.
