Comfort Birds are simply designed then individually and lovingly hand-carved right here in Australia on the Gold Coast from various types of timber.  No two are alike.

Comfort Bird in hand 1As their name implies, Comfort Birds are often used to bring comfort to people who are anxious or have been through trauma.  They are also used by people in physical pain, who may be grieving a loss, or facing the end of life.  The birds provide a smooth, comforting, tactile experience.   Stroke victims have found it useful to hold a bird throughout a troubled night to prevent a hand from closing. Many have held a Comfort Bird as they have chosen to be still, reflective and focused on prayer. Contemplatives have used Comfort Birds during meditation and prayer. Others have held a Comfort Bird while giving a presentation or delivering an important speech, testimony or sermon.

Young people who have been traumatized have been given a Comfort Bird to holdComfort Birds 1 while they are telling their stories.  The birds remind us that we too are held, even in the darkest of times.  We are of much more value than a sparrow, and yet a sparrow is seen, acknowledged, known and cared for.

Comfort birds have natural blemishes, symbolic of our own hurts and wounds.  They are a reminder that our scars and wounds give us character, that being imperfect does not mean we are less valuable or less lovable, and they remind us that living with memories of traumatic events, disappointment or hurt, can be rich and meaningful.

Comfort birds are available to order at $28 each, including Australia-wide postage.

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?  Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care…  

So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
