Augmented authenticity and Kintsugi

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting together the pieces of a broken cup with gold. An ancient art, with a meaning that goes far beyond mere technique, a manual gesture, and that comes precisely from the composition of two words: kin (gold) and tsugi (reunite, repair, put together). Today this art is practiced by many craftsmen in Japan, and it can even take up to a month to repair a cup, but what strikes me is the possible analogy with our authenticity.

Why is empathy a hard skill

Heartmath researchers have found that the heart is a sophisticated information coding and processing center and the information that the heart sends to the brain is much more than what brain sends to the heart and the electromagnetic field generated by heart is perceptible at a conversation distance. This means that our loving kindness can infect those close to us even without shaking their hand, at a conversation distance. Can you now immagine why empathy is a hard skill?
