The Heart Ritual
The art of repairing your heart to wholeness.
We all have experienced heartbreaks, repressed memories and emotions or struggles in life we haven't come to peace with yet. The Heart Ritual is a ceramic (he)art to help you create your own ritual at home. This heart ritual is for those who want to connect to their heart in this creative, hands-on and symbolic way. The ceramic heart helps you to create your own ritual at home. It invites you to feel your pain (how big or small), to embrace it and let it go. It can help you to let go of any unpleasant situation, experience, people or even negative thoughts and patterns in your life. You will experience an embodied imagination of your heart process.
There are endless ways to heal your heart, as many as the amounts of hearts in the world! We love to encourage you to find your own way, but our heart ritual is one of those that can help you in your heart journey.
‘The wound is the place where the light enters you’
Through our booklet you will be guided step by step in this beautiful process. By first connecting with the ceramic heart and then breaking it in your own way, you will make an embodied imagination of your heartbreak process. Then gather the broken pieces together and become more aware of your feelings and emotions. Followed by repairing and mending the pieces with gold, helps to give your broken pieces a place. See your cracks as something unique that add to your beauty. Embrace the flaws. Break and repair your heart with gold as a symbol of wholeness and healing.
‘There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’
- Leonard Cohen

A Japanese Philosophy
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy it sees breakage and repair as part of the life of an object, rather than something to disguise. As a philosophy, kintsugi is similar to the Japanese philosophy of embracing the flawed or imperfection in life. According this beautiful philosophy we keep an object around even after it has broken, highlighting the cracks and repairs as simply a life event than allowing its service to end at the time of its damage or breakage.
