Reclaiming Darkness as Essential to the Spiritual Life

“New life starts in the dark. Whether it is a seed in the ground, a baby in the womb, or Jesus in the tomb, it starts in the dark.” ~ Barbara Brown Taylor

Darkness can be a place of limited sight and not knowing, but Advent is a time to practice living in the dark in new ways. Darkness can be a place of fear, of shadow, of pain. Darkness can also be a place of germination, of freedom, of new life. In this workshop we will develop rituals and practices that can help us see darkness in a new way, embracing the wisdom it has to bring. The Psalms will be our guide as we explore their subtle and expressive responses to our bewildering, beautiful lives.
