Mercy in the Dark – An Online course on the Dark Night
Tuesday, October 16, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm MDT$197
Whether you’ve been on a spiritual path for years or something simply seems to have taken over your life and turned things upside down, this series of calls will provide support for those going through a dark transition. Jeannie speaks from her lived wisdom and five year journey through the dark night of the soul. The Christian mystic St. John of the Cross maintained that Love itself steals into the soul without our knowledge and does its work in silent darkness, for if we were allowed to see what was happening, we would never allow it. The dark night is a gift of Grace, taking over where our practices and/or passionate prayers have left off, but can be hell on wheels to get through.
Whether you feel you are in this most blessed of transitions or not, darkness is darkness and you will find solace, context and support in the company of others who are experiencing the deconstructive force of when things fall apart.
Jeannie’s gift for inviting people to join her in resting and rooted presence evokes a deep meeting with oneself and reality. Within that, Jeannie’s humor and iconoclasm serve to bring people into an understanding that is beyond the intellectual. Come join us!
