kintsugi and writing: sonoma county CA
One Day Kintsugi Ceremony
Wholistic Life Renewal Center, Sebastopol, CA
(Check back for upcoming dates in 2021)
In this outdoor workshop, we honor the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. Kintsugi (“golden joinery”) offers a metaphor for the brokenness within us and Mother Earth. By treating breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise, this ceremony honors our grief and helps us peacefully accept the natural cycle of growth and decay. Join me and co-guide Susan Hagen as we break and mend Kintsugi bowls and write about this deep, transforming experience.
Retreat fee of $175 includes Kintsugi bowls and supplies. Register here.
Words from a student
“GG, you have such a warm, safe and creative way with the classes. I loved the experience of having you be the ‘art doula’ for my first SoulCollage® cards, helping me with the technical aspects but also just being present and supportive.”
