Darkness, as an element of nature, carries qualities that are receptive, or yin, like stillness and quietude. Darkness is the restorative, slow aspect of consciousness that is necessary to sustain and regenerate all of life. Within the dominant paradigm, however, there is a bias towards light, and qualities which are active, or yang, such as motion, speed, productivity, and animation.
On this day, drawing on teachings from her September book release, Luminous Darkness, Eden — dharma teacher and deep ecologist — will guide us through a restorative program of meditation, mindful journaling, and practices for subtle body awareness.
Join us for an exploration of the regenerative balance and interplay of dark and light, yin and yan, and attunement and productivity that dharma practice invites into our lives.
