Into the Dark Wood

Fri 4:00pm - 4:50pm

Venue: Bridge


Modern spiritual initiation takes place in the dark inner wood of trauma, loneliness, suffering and uncertainty. Our time in the dark wood of our lives begins in our formative (conception through 21) and early adult years. This is where we find the roots and shadows of feeling ashamed, afraid, crazy, damaged, rejected or lost. In this presentation, what science often pathologizes and medicates, will be reconsidered from a spiritual perspective. Suggesting that there is spiritual wisdom behind our difficult biological and biographical stories will allow us to move through the dark wood with purpose and understanding.
