LIFEHONEY Ceremony Kits

When life brings you a year like 2020, make lifehoney!

Each of our lives has been disrupted this year. What better gift to give your beloveds than one that helps them pick up the pieces and make something beautiful!  Every LIFEHONEY® Ceremony Kit is layers of giftable elegance born from the Zen wisdom of Japanese Kintsugi.  Kintsugi, meaning “golden joinery,” is a 15th Century art form that does not discard broken pottery.  Instead, it accentuates the cracks with gold.  Each 25-piece Kit + Online Video Course guides its user in a modern kintsugi ceremony, resulting in a gold-bowl keepsake to beautify the home and uplift the Soul! 

Give a one-of-a-kind gift this year that drips with care. 

A portion of each sale’s proceeds go to two non-profits: one that gives back to Japanese art and culture and one that helps Earth’s Honeybees thrive.  

Yep, Culture & Bees. Life & Honey!

Zippered hood pockets and removable masks offer convenience and comfort in knowing that protection is within reach.* Antimicrobial properties built in to protect the product.
