In modern culture, darkness is seen as evil and something to fear. The result is being resistant of- and extremely unprepared to face the inevitable darkness of the human experience such as fear, death/change, stillness, pain, intense emotion, the unknown and forces beyond our control. However, this wasn’t always the case. In ancient times, our ancestors were very good friends with the Dark God/desses as it brought much value through its cyclical wisdom, spiritual connection and deeply transformative medicine.
This product contains a recording of the Befriending The Dark (workshop, meditation, yoga). In this 2-hour session we:
☾ Begin by creating sacred space followed by cosmic lesson on the teachings of "darkness", Scorpio, the Lunar Samhain and cyclical rhythms as it portrays to stepping into your power, the process of death & rebirth, cultivating a deep relationship with your spiritual roots and coming into compassionate acceptance of all parts of you.
☾ Sit together in reverence for our ancestors, past lives and all that is beyond the physical realm during a visualization meditation.
☾ Reflect on what it means to positively embody the darkness with journaling prompts.
☾ Integrate these cosmic insights with a Vinyasa yoga class.
