What you'll do

## THIS EXPERIENCE LIKE A GIFT ##
Write to me and I will send you a customized virtual greeting card for the person you want to give the present to.

During our time together:
- you will learn what Kintsukuroi is and the principles on the base of this ancient Japanese technique;
- using this metaphor, you will reflect on the imperfection (of an object, your journey, your life);
- you will practice this technique with a bowl and you will find new meanings of some aspects of you or your life that you don't like;
- you could share your reflections and your work with companions, in a cosy home and you will cuddle yourself with hot tea and sweet biscuits;
- you will bring back a unique art object that will remember your personal Kintsukuroi experience.
Other things to note
The porcelain is as beautiful and fragile as life. Both of them can crash into many pieces but this is not a good reason why to stop to live intensely. We can learn to "reassemble ourselves" after the adversities, to "pick up the pieces" and make precious our imperfection.

I'm a facilitator and coach, for 4 years I have helping people to use their creativity to reach their goals, realize their wishes and stay well with themselves and others. I’m part of a large international community and I participate at several conferences and seminars about creativity and creative problem solving, all over the world. I'm part of the board that every year, since 17 years ago, organizes in Italy the biggest European Conference about Creative Problem Solving, Innovation and Changing: CREA Conference.
During these events, I share and meet new tools and technique.
Some years ago, I met Kintsukuroi like a metaphor to integrate parts of our life that we don't like and making them beautiful and precious.
Now I love to open the door of my home to spread it to as people as possible.

È stata un'esperienza fuori dal comune. Chiara ci ha messo da subito a nostro agio riservandoci un trattamento cordiale ed ospitale sin dai primi istanti. È riuscita a ricreare un ambiente accogliente ed intimo, facendo in modo da poter vivere a fondo l'esperienza del kintsukuroi, come merita di essere vissuta. Consigliatissima! :)

Quest'esperienza è stato un regalo e quindi condividerò quello che mi è stato raccontato da chi ha partecipato al workshop. Chiara è una persona solare e positiva che però non manca di competenza. I partecipanti erano entusiasti del clima che si è venuto a creare con l'host ma anche con le altre persone presenti al workshop. È stato bello tanto il lavoro pratico di rottura e riassemblaggio della ciotola (fornita da Chiara) quanto i momenti di riflessione legati ad esso. Infine ringrazio Chiara per la disponibilità offertami ancor prima della prenotazione. Sono assolutamente contenta della scelta fatta.
