Kintsugi wellbeing groups

We run wellbeing groups - be part of the next one

Many people are having a difficult time for lots of different reasons. We are offering wellbeing courses for anyone who feels it might help them.

'Kintsugi' (金継ぎ) is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful. Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.

This course gives an opportunity to get together with others and discuss topics like anxiety, anger, honesty, resilience, forgiveness, self-acceptance, disappointment and loss in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

It's a six week course that can be extended to another 6 weeks if interested and there are groups for youth and adults.

We have recently produced a short video that contains feedback from some people who have participated in recent courses and explain more about the course -

And check out this video to hear Emily's experience of the Kintsugi Hope Groups -

Kintsugi Hope is a national organisation that was founded by Diane and Patrick Regan OBE after a series of operations and events that took them to the brink; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Kintsugi Hope has a vision of starting a movement of wellbeing groups based around the same principles, where people can experience:

  • Safety and support where there is no shame and embarrassment in struggling
  • An increase in self-worth, confidence and wellbeing
  • A deeper understanding of the reality of God’s love for them
  • Clear pathways to receive additional support if needed.
