********I AM OFFERING A VIRTUAL 12 WEEK DBT SKILLS GROUP STARTING 08 FEBRUARY 2024 FOR RESIDENTS OF AB, ON, NS. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR FURTHER DETAILS******** Life is a journey comprised of the choices we make. We all have the ability to change course at any time by making different choices. No one is stuck, and no one has to be a victim to their past, their mistakes or feel trapped by their behaviors. Even our mistakes or tragedies we have experienced, have the power to transform us in brilliant and beautiful ways, if we chose to take responsibility. My practice is based on the idea of Kintsukuroi. This is the Japanese art of pottery repair, in which broken pieces of pottery are mended using precious metals. The resulting piece is often more beautiful than it was before it was broken. Its cracks make it unique, and the shining way it has been mended now becomes a valuable feature. I believe that difficult times do not have to break us, but can help us grow , and our cracks can become opportunities to mend ourselves back together in beautiful ways. Our cracks can be reminders that even broken things can still be golden.
