Finding Our Way Home


November 30 - December 2, 2018

Paula D'Arcy

At some point, we all find ourselves navigating a “dark night.” The feeling of being blindsided by life, disoriented, lost and alone, is common to the human journey. Beyond the loss of loved ones through physical death, darkness may arise when we feel disillusioned, or when we confront unexpected illness, both mental and physical.

In this retreat, Paula explores how night can slowly become day again, and how we can come to recognize the night experience as a natural part of life. We’ll also explore what it means to pay attention to our lives and set an intention to live more mindfully.

This event is co-sponsored with Copper Beech Institute.
