Following the outline of Francis Weller’s “Five Gates of Grief” this video invites us to locate and mourn the parts of our lives that never knew love.
This is sacred and soulful work. As we examine the deficits and voids in our selves, as we see where our lives were Bonzai-ed by circumstances or the unskilful acts of others.
Now we can begin to allow the light to enter us through those very cracks and fissures.
The video also introduces the Japanese art of Kintsugi as a metaphor for the integration of our loss.
