“Kintsugi, which translates as ‘golden joinery,’ is the latest lifestyle trend promising to transform our lives.” —theTelegraph

Cultivate inner strength and rebuild your life with the ancient principles of kintsugi.

When we lose a person we love, a job, or our health, it can feel like a precious piece of ourselves falling to the ground and shattering. But in the Japanese art ofkintsugi, that’s where the creation of beauty begins—in the delicate re-joining and mending of shards with loving attention. Psychologist Tomás Navarro encourages us to approach our lives in the same way.
Everyone faces suffering, but how we engage with our troubles and heal our emotional wounds can make all the difference. Rather than conceal our repairs, what if we embraced them—and looked to them as proof of our strength?

WithKintsugi, Navarro presents a sensitive and contemplative approach to the suffering that he’s seen in his professional practice and in his own life. His reflections help us to engage with our tragedies and challenges—transmuting them into sources of strength. Through gentle stories, practices, and insights, readers gain deeper perspective and courage in the face of life’s inevitable crises, heartbreaks, and losses.

Tomás Navarro is a psychologist who loves people and what they feel, think, and do. He is the founder of a consultancy and center of emotional well-being. He currently splits his time between technical writing, training, consultancy, conferences, and advisory processes and personal and professional coaching. He lives in Gerona and Barcelona, Spain.

"With lively prose and many creative analogies...Navarro eases the way through the many questions that structure each section."—Publishers Weely

Kintsugigives readers the chance to incorporate principles into their daily lives that will help them see through many everyday challenges.—Library Journal
