The Riches of Darkness

December 7, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am EST

The Riches of Darkness:
A Solstice Journey

A time of year when Darkness grows…
A time of yearning for the light…
A time to slow down, reflect, light a candle, bake squash and chestnuts…
And – like seeds deep in the soil – be nurtured, ready to be renewed…
Join us on a solstice journey, where we seek the riches of darkness
through stories from all over the world, listening, discussions, exercises…
looking outward and inward…
seeking the Divine,
and celebrating the light in every sense.

Join Maja Bumberák and Jim Brulé in this three-session exploration of the pregnant darkness of the Solstice. Using stories, meditations, music, and online and offline exercises, we will discover new paths of yearning and blessing that arise in this powerful time of year. 

Classes will be held via Zoom on three Wednesdays (9:30-11:30 EST / 15:30-17:30 CEST): 7, 14, and 21 December – culminating on the Winter Solstice.

The fee for the three classes is $120 USD; limited scholarships are available.
