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 is a place of limited sight and not knowing, and Advent is a time to practice living in the dark in new ways. How can darkness be a place of fear, of shadow, of pain? How can darkness 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.
