Kit: Dark Night of the Soul 

A kit to guide you through suffering and sacrifice to transformation in a journey from dusk to dawn as you travel from darkness to light. This is an archetypal offering to guide us through the darkness of our life and time, guided by myth as we find our way into the light together. We all have a need to heal and heal our world. 
The soul faithfully comes to our aid through dreams, deep emotion, love, the quiet voice of guidance, synchronicities, revelations, hunches, and visions, and at times through illness nightmares, and terrors.

Is this path for you?

No art "skills" are required or even relevant. . . nor will this be dark or painful. In contrast, this kit is about light, liberation and release, offering deep transformation. It is ideal for anyone who seeks to lay the burden of grief down and create new patterns, memories and stories to guide you to a place of greater lightness of being, moving from night to day and fear to love. It is a journey of hope and soul rebirth as we work and play with shadow.

Rituals & Rite of Passage

in ritual and rite
There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.

What to expect in the dark

This course leads through the darkness into the light. The truth is that the darkness is always with us, just behind us in the unconscious as a shadow. To confront the shadow is the only way to illuminate it. Though this is not easy, it is profoundly rewarding and life affirming, touching upon the core of who you are and why you are here: what you are called to do. You can expect to encounter dreams and synchronicities to guide you . . . as well as some bumps along the road as you learn to navigate by starlight to release your fear. 
If you comprehend the darkness, it seizes you. It comes over you like the night with black shadows and countless shimmering stars. Silence and peace come over you if you begin to comprehend the darkness. Only he who does not comprehend the darkness fears the night. . . One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. [Don't be afraid! Love is in the stars.]

 Dark Night of the Soul

The darkness that births the light 

Who is (or really wants to be) an expert in the dark night of the soul? The obvious answer is the soul, but another answer is all of us who walk the healing path. Shaman means healer and also "one who sees in the dark," so we walk a healing path together to heal both individually and collectively. On this journey I will create a container to help hold our transformation, following my own forays into the depths and through the dark night of the soul. Having undergone a series of life changes and challenges to myself and those close to me, including depression, addiction, a suicide attempt, cancer, and a car crash in the time of covid, I am learning to be comfortable with discomfort as I navigate the darkness. These experiences have taught me about myself, my belief, and ultimately my power to transform, inspiring me to offer this course as support for others who journey to find themselves and their way at this time. This is a place and a time to help each other as we loose and find ourselves under the stars, waiting in a power circle to greet the dawn and the beauty of the sunrise. 

Soul Birth

A dance of dark and light

 “The dark night of the soul is a journey into light, a journey from your darkness into the strength and hidden resources of your soul.” Caroline Myss
The dark night of the soul offers a safe space to cocoon as we awaken to the brilliance of the light and life growing within us. The darkness of the soul's journey is really another way of saying metamorphosis, reflecting an inner initiation in which we gather the gifts of soul to become integrated and whole. It is a time of opportunity that we are going through collectively and individually. From a pandemic to political tension, ecological disaster to economic strife, t is not surprising that on a personal level we have epidemic levels of suicide, depression, anxiety and abuse. Yet, just as the symbol for conflict means opportunity in different languages, we have a powerful chance to transform and awaken to a new higher potential. Though the circumstances of our night journey may vary, we can all use a container of support to hold us as we come to soul-consciousness together. 

Crisis as opportunity: change

The dark night of the soul is a spiritual or soul crisis that offers us a path through the darkness into the light of a new day and a new capability through a shift from orbiting around the ego to soul, from fear to love. As we journey, we transform into something deeper and more natural, discovering and embracing who we are. The dark night of the soul is an opportunity to heal and become whole by accepting and loving our darkness to claim our light.
There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.
hazrat inayat khan

Explore the darkness

We begin our journey ... exploring the darkness. This is a course that centers around the stars and the starlight of the soul. The heavenly illumination can feel like the diffused light of the stars or the electric strike of lightning connecting heaven and earth. The dark night of the soul can be painful and life threatening but it is also how we come to consciousness and transform. It is a process of death and rebirth in which we are reborn like a butterfly in the form of the soul and take flight.

Transform together

"Don't build a wall around your own suffering- it may devour you from the inside." Frida Kahlo
Come and cocoon over a 3 month journey to transform like the metamorphosis of the butterfly from the caterpillar. Individually we experience the darkness as an alchemical disintegration that precedes integration. In the velvet dark of the cocoon, we liquify into the unconscious waters of imaginal cells to be reborn in a new form. But in the pitch black of the darkness, we can feel lost and alone. This course is designed to help hold us as we transition together through a weekend of depth work.

While the dark night of the soul can be hard, calling us into the darkness of our past, world, and life, it offers a chance to overcome the obstacles before us and within us. Releasing fear and past patterns, we are able to move forward in our life, releasing the past to embrace the present.
"The most terrifying this is to accept oneself completely." Jung
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

A Chance to HEAL the past

We all want a fresh start.

We all have a wound to heal.

The journey of the dark night of the soul is where we find out who we are.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

To be naked is to be vulnerable

In some cultures the indigenous people have noted that the greatest sadness is to not know your true calling or dance naked under the stars. This is a path of trust and courage, calling us to go into our own darkness. 
If you can touch your shadow--within form--and do something out of your ordinary pattern, a great deal of energy will flow from it.
Josh Stobbard

Shadow work and play

The Dark Night of the Soul and the Soul of Creativity work and play with the perfect imperfection of our authentic (messy) self and Self. This is a different kind of art than the superficially perfected image behind glass. We will integrate story, creative journaling, active imagination, dreamwork, and shadow play. The mantra of this journey is there is only one way and it’s your way (really your soul's way). So sit back and relax. Your soul knows the way. This is really a path of creative play.
The reason why the soul not only travels securely when it thus travels in the dark, but makes even greater progress, is this: In general the soul makes greater progress when it least thinks so [or we least think so].

Dive into the dark

This is a  deep dive into the dark night of the soul in which the structure is one of inner and outer guidance and support with a structure to contain the darkness. 
When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life and all that is needed. 
Joseph Campbell

Birthed from darkness to light

This kit travels the journey from dusk to dawn. While this course digs deep into the darkness of our embodied wounds the the rich depths of our psychic soul. So, on its deepest level, this is about establishing and strengthening your relationship to soul to help guide you through the darkness. It is a time to reimagine and envision yourself and your life. Like a vision quest, you are claiming your power, purpose, and identity in the world. Who are you called to be in your greatness? Dare to move toward the light of our own soul.

Continuing support

While we are not in control of how the darkness comes, we can control how we we work with and transform through the movement. We can transform and deepen in love, light, peace and courage, fostering an appreciation for the darkness, but we cannot make the darkness stop.
