Friday, April 1
0 CEs

Join dharma teacher and author Deborah Eden Tull for a weekend retreat exploring the true invitation of darkness, and the essential partnership between light and dark as a radical pathway to wholeness - in ourselves and in our world. With a restorative evening on Friday and an all-day gathering on Saturday, engage in guided meditation, experiential teaching, and facilitated group discussion to inspire personal and collective transformation. These offerings celebrate Eden’s newest book, coming out with Shambhala this year, Luminous Darkness: An Engaged Buddhist Approach to Embracing the Unknown (For Personal and Collective Awakening.)

Darkness is not the absence of light, but a vital and restorative expression of nature and consciousness. Global uncertainty invites us to re-learn how to move through the dark gracefully. While we cannot rely on our familiar compass to navigate darkness, we can access the emergent map that comes from presence, deep listening, and relational intelligence; away from the world of concepts and ideas, and into the wisdom of our bodies.

Discover how spiritual traditions across the world recognize “dark times” — periods which appear as the absence of light — as a profound invitation for growth. With nothing to hold onto while swimming through the mysterious tides of change, we are invited to open our hearts to fresh perception. Encounter how moments of Endarkenment can become the most potent opportunities for insight, healing, and transformation.
