“Holy Darkness”

This is totally yummy and inspiring.
Happy Solstice as we surrender
to the “Holy Darkness.”
“Beloved Friends and Family,

Welcome to winter.   ❄️

Wherever you may dwell, I invite you to join me in letting down into the arms of the holy darkness.  This is cave time.  The time of inward-turning, mystery-embracing, pregnant-hiddenness.  Every tradition I know of has shaped a ritual to match the liminal space of this season.  The more masculine religions encourage us to navigate the darkness as efficiently as possible and get back to the light. ? Yet feminine wisdom is at home in not-knowingness.  The feminine not only honors ambiguity but drinks it like tea.  Drink with me.  The sacred dark will swiftly lift.

Savor every sip.”   ☕️


Many thanks to Elizabeth G. for sharing this beauty with me.

    Oh that is a beauty! Yes, we do understand ambiguity because we are multi-faceted and many things, at different times and all at once.
