Kintsugi Tour at Sakurajima on Virtual Harmony

Join Lyr Lobo and Spinoza Quinnell on a tour of Sakurajima and the Kintsugi Contemplative Pathways for the Wounded Healer. We will meet on Zoom, discuss the research behind the simulation, and experience the Kintsugi Contemplative Pathways journey as we rebuild broken pottery with gold while reflecting on the role of a wounded healer, the triumph of the spirit, and our thoughts on the future.

How to participate

Gather at OSCC or in Zoom before heading over to Sakurajima so we can share the backstory by voice comfortably with the group. Those who wish can join us on the tour and those who cannot can stay in Zoom.
