Kintsugi




When broken by life

Left in pieces on the ground

Bring them together

And the places you've been shattered

Will glitter like gold

 

In times of trouble when we're threatened by the dehumanizing, barbaric brutality surrounding us we need a place of refuge--a space where we can rest and revitalize and process our feelings of rage, grief, and vulnerability. At Stanford's People's University for Palestine we gathered for a moment of peace in making kintsugi--breaking a pot and putting it back together highlighting the cracks with gold lacquer.


In quiet reflection and artistic creation we enact the process of courageously opening our heart, having it broken and making it whole again. Grounding ourselves, feeling clarity about our mission, and regaining our humanity. In community we connect with ourselves and others more deeply, drawing strength from one another to persevere in our actions.
