The Luminous Darkness: Imagination, Possibility, and Conscious Intentions in 2023

Jan 22, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - Jan 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm PST

All light arises from darkness, including insight, creativity, vision, and possibility. The luminous darkness is the presence and receptivity through which we also access light. It is the field of all potential that we sometimes forget in the context of ordinary everyday life. In this deeply restorative retreat, at the beginning of a new year, we will commune with the luminous darkness to, listen deeply, renewing possibility, and set conscious intentions for our lives and world in the year ahead. 

 

In this workshop, we will reflect on and harvest lessons from the past year, and release limiting beliefs. This regenerative process is about remembering who we really are …and stepping into possibility, on behalf of our collective. 

We will deepen our embodiment of compassion and clear seeing  through:

  • Meditation/ Dharma talks.
  • Conscious movement/dance.
  • Embodied practices for invoking the realm of dreaming and conscious imagination, and for embracing shadow and the unknown.
  • Reflective writing.
  • Relational mindfulness. 
  • Deep time in nature.

This workshop, inspired by Eden’s book Luminous Darkness, draws upon the wisdom streams of Buddhist meditation and mindfulness, non-duality, deep ecology, and “The Work That Reconnects.”.
