“THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL”
The Night of Sense, The Night of Spirit
Presented by Susan Komis
Sponsored by Contemplative Outreach of Central Florida
Held in Cocoa Beach, Florida, April 22-23, 2016
In this workshop, Susan Komis explored how St. John of the Cross charted the fundamental journey of the human spirit where no words satisfy. The Night of Sense & Night of Spirit provides an inner landscape of the soul, a geography of the soul that presents the human experience of being wounded and simultaneously, the experience of being healed by the divine physician. This journey provides inspired insights into our contemporary contemplative journey.
