Healing Experience inspired by Kintsugi Philosophy

 In this workshop we will combine the Japanese aesthetic of embracing imperfection, with Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery. Kintsugi philosophy teaches us how to embrace the transient, restore and repair the seemingly broken, and celebrate a journey. Join us for this truly immersive and hands-on workshop and experience it for yourself. You will work with a broken physical object and restore it. Then, we will have a small group discussion on the experience. The restored physical object is yours to keep as a physical memory of your experience/learnings. No previous experience or knowledge is necessary. All materials will be provided. We cannot wait to share this experience with you.

Important reminders: 

  • Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early. Give yourself time to check-in and relax before the workshop begins. 

  • Do not wear clothing that you fear getting dirty. While it is unlikely that you will make a mess, it can definitely happen!

High Vibration Gong Sound Journey Meditation

"The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also." --Harriet Ann Jacobs


The sun is out, the birds are singing, and it's time to launch exciting things. Each sound journey is different. Sound relaxes the mind, balances energy centers, and rejuvenates our spirit.

Join us as we share quotes, poetry, sound and vibration in celebration of spring renewal. 

Please bring a blanket/yoga mat anything that makes you comfortable.
