Share the burden.
Kintsugi is the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics by using a precious metal, often gold. The gold leaves “scars”, thus enhancing the breaks. When completed, the object is often more beautiful and stronger than it originally was.
Loss changes us. As it should. Working through grief is like taking a shattered plate and fitting the pieces back together. The pieces are all there but the plate is different – stronger in some places, more beautiful in others.
Whether your loss is recent or many years ago, the New Orleans Grief Center is here to help you fit the pieces back together through counseling in a safe, supportive space.
“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process.”
