The Dark Night of the Soul and the Spiritual Awakening Process
Thursday, March 13, 2014
There are many twists and turns on the mystical path of spiritual awakening. It’s great when we feel that we are making progress, but there can also be dark times when we despair how far we have yet to go.
·        What can we learn from St. John of the Cross, the sixteenth century Christian mystic about this dark night? Mirabai Starr’s translation of his spiritual classic, Dark Night of the Soul, makes that wisdom accessible, profoundly meaningful, and helpful for us today.
·        If you have ever felt the nearness of divine delight only to later find yourself in the desert of difficulty, seemingly without support, you’ll rejoice to discover the encouragement and insight that yoga practice provides. 
Yogacharya O’Brian and Mirabai Starr explore what that dark night truly is and how we can find solace and support in the midst of it.
