There is a Crack in Everything

Mindfulness & Self-Compassion

Artwork: Milton Avery

Good morning beautiful people,

I truly hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

Kintsugi, which is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold, is built on the idea that by embracing our flaws and imperfections which are unavoidable, we can create an even stronger, and more beautiful piece of art.

On this note, I am going to invite you to take a deep breath, and feel the air moving through your nostrils. As you sink a little deeper in the position you are in, how about breathing out the thoughts and stories you tell yourself about your imperfections?

Everything has a crack, yet, in this world of constant change, one thing that is permanent, is that the more we feel, the fuller we get.

This is my wish for us all, that we always allow the light to get in.

In case you are interested to deepen this work along side me, I am doing a three hours workshop on Friday June 17th, 2022 in Brussels Belgium, from 10am to 1pm.

Until then, sending you love and deep respect.

Vanessa
