What are these “dark nights?”  What is meant by “dark?”

The Dark Night is a metaphor and often misunderstood.  It simply means that the human mind is unable to grasp the transformative work that God is effecting in the deepest recesses of the soul.  It is like a “darkness” to our human understanding.

In this workshop, we will explore how  St. John of the Cross charts 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.

The “dark nights” are an amazing story of grace and human development as told in these images.  This journey provides inspired insights into our contemporary contemplative journey.

The workshop will allow time for presentation, small group process, periods of silence and Centering Prayer. Some knowledge of Centering Prayer will be helpful to attend this workshop but not required.
