Hosted by Michelle McMaster

Michelle has studied Kintsugi with an 83yr old Japanese Master, who gave her a deep understanding of how to apply the process of thoughtful repair to human pain & brokenness. Those insights, combined with the study of modern neuroscience and many years experience in mental health & trauma recovery inspired her to create Kintsugi Healing.
