Rena Romano, TEDx Talk,
SPEAKER • AUTHOR • COACH
After Rena Romano gained the courage to speak out about her experience of childhood sexual abuse, she discovered that few victims have the same supportive experience. This compelling talk reveals a new approach allowing each of us to aid sexual abuse survivors to lead healthy, happy, productive lives. “How you and I react and speak to sexual abuse survivors can make a difference in whether we shut down or get help,” Romano says. “If healing begins by telling, then we must make telling safe!” Discover how in this talk by a woman who learned by living it. Rena used one of our Kintsugi / Kintsukuroi bowls to illustrate the metaphor.
HowStuffWorks - Kintsugi: What a Broken
Bowl Can Teach Us
When something is broken, it's normally considered damaged goods, a lost cause or otherwise beyond hope. But that's not so in Japanese society.
The 15th-century art of Kintsugi, which translated means golden joinery, reclaims the beauty of a damaged gold repaired pottery.
Broken, the latest episode from The Stuff of Life podcast, looks at this idea of brokenness in our world, from a personal and political perspective, and how, ultimately, we can gain strength from it.
4 Steps on the Road to Healing from
Childhood By Peg Streep
I think this is how we need to look at healing. To close our wounds with new understanding but, nonetheless, to realize that our experiences make us unique, not flawed. Think of the repairs you are making to the broken pieces of your spirit as rivers of gold. Think Kintsugi repair.
Kintsugi & Christianity
We need more golden repair in our lives because we so often hide our brokenness.

Healing Unloved Daughters and the
Art of Kintsugi
So, when we talk of healing the wounds of childhood, we should bring the image of a beautiful cup or bowl repaired by Kintsukuroi to mind, its cracks and breaks repaired with gold and made into shining patterns of great beauty and oneness. That image may help us focus on how our past experiences inform those in the present, to better see how the behaviors we adopted in childhood to cope may animate our behaviors and choices now, even as we move away from the past. As a layperson and fellow traveler, not a day goes by that I don't appreciate how my childhood even now shapes the woman I am, in ways both seen and unseen, good and bad. Rather than see them as scars, seeing those wounds as lines, rivers, and patches of gold, silver, or copper brings a smile to my face.

Love the look of Kintsugi. You know, the Japanese pottery with the intentionally decorated crack in it? The ceramic vessels have an incredible, gold streak adorning them, boasting their history and celebrating their imperfections.
