The Cup of My Life: Kintsugi. The Art of Golden Repair.

A day retreat with Fran Francis

An interactive engagement with our own life as fragile vessels – complete with chips, cracks and broken bits and the beautiful art of kintsugi or “golden repair” as a metaphor for realistic, honest healing. The day will be a rich mix of stories, scripture, creative reflection, interaction with each other and …quiet time. This simple day requires no special talents or artiness. Just come as you are and bring your own favourite cup, mug, stein, or whisky glass!

Saturday October 6.  9:30am-4pm.  $20 cash/eftpos at the event.  Please register by emailing
