In the context of the winter solstice, we explore how to open up to different aspects of darkness (stopping and stillness, not knowing and mystery, difficulty and creativity) and how we, in doing so, open to light.
This solstice talk explores how, in the face of darkness - unconsciousness, ignorance, violence - we can call on the light that is within us. The two pathways are to courageously look directly into the places of suffering, and to include in our gaze, the intrinsic goodness in all beings, in life.
