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 - https://youtu.be/vugCWNJUG8k
And check out this video to hear Emily's experience of the Kintsugi Hope Groups - https://youtu.be/GXY7eTAGrrE

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.
