The morning prayer focused on the idea of Kintsugi (the art of precious scars), the Japanese tradition of mending broken ceramics with lacquer and gold, making the broken jar or plate more precious with the addition of the gold. The idea of this process applied to the human condition, reflects the fact that our brokenness enriches our humanity! The prayer led on to explaining the significance of the 16 combinations of personality types in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. Each of the Brothers received his extensive report on his personal type and was given time to examine the significance of each aspect of his personality type.
Sunil provided a creative way to allow the participants to share the qualities of each of the personality types with each other, allowing people to offer a type of feedback to one another.
Overall, this workshop added to the previous week’s work on understanding self and others.
