Out of the winter season, participants in this program will explore the darkness together. We will start with a blessing:
We will bless each other. We will bless what we bring to the adventure. We will bless our beautiful world, both the miraculous and catastrophic.
Then we will turn toward how we each define the dark and enter into a journey of reflection, mirroring insights, singing, movement, journaling, and communing in silence to deepen our relationship to the dark. We will then explore themes of the dark as a place of healing and rest, womb that births our vision, our creativity and the home of awe and wonder.
In order to do this, we’ll support each other to:
Look at the hard things that happen in the dark;
Face our fear of the unknown;
Look at how our culture has equated dark with bad;
Explore the generative and restorative components of the dark.
Join us for an adventure into the willowy shadows. Bringing our curiosity and hearts, we will discover, celebrate, and heal together.
NB: All scheduled events are Eastern Time (US & Canada).
