Episode Info:

In this episode our host Ed Andrew explains the change of name to Human Impact, the reasons and advice behind it.

Ed also introduces the book Kintsugi which is about overcoming adversity and showing vulnerability as a strength, how we are all built to deal with and overcome pain, whether it is a job loss, bereavement, financial loss or loss of a relationship.

Kingtsugi is the Japanese art of embracing imperfections and finding happiness by author, psychologist and wellness consultant Tomas Navarro.

"Japanese Kintsugi masters delicately patch up broken ceramics with gold adhesive, leaving the restoration clearly visible to others. Psychologist Tomás Navarro believes that we should approach our lives with the same philosophy. Everyone faces suffering, but it is the way in which we overcome our troubles, and heal our emotional wounds, that is key. We shouldn't conceal our repairs, they are proof of our strength.

Navarro presents real solutions to genuine problems that he has seen in his professional practice. His anecdotes demonstrate that it is possible to transform adversity or setbacks into a strength. His psychological understanding and perspective will leave you feeling courageous and prepared, should you experience misfortune, be it heartbreak, a job loss or bereavement.

Often practised alongside Ikigai (or the art of finding one's life purpose), Kintsugi shows you how happiness can be found again, often against all odds. A painful experience can in fact make you a more determined individual, ready to face the world with optimism.
