In life it can be so easy to favor the “Light” and want to push away the “Dark”, both in ourselves and the world around us. No matter how much work we have done on growing our love and acceptance, there are still those parts lurking deep down in the shadows, for which we find it so hard to find approval.
Yet what if you were able to live your life from a place of accepting and embracing your whole self and the whole of what the world has to offer? What if even the darkest parts within you and in the world around you didn’t frighten, repulse, or disturb you anymore? Can you imagine the love, power, and freedom that would open in your life? If you feel drawn to living life with this fullness, we invite you to come join us for an evening of connection and play as we explore the richness, beauty, and dynamism of the Dark.
“Touching the Darkness” is taught by the founders of the Light Dark Institute, Tani Thole and Leslie Rogers, whose teachings are sought after nationally and internationally by those with a desire to awaken their ability to be a full “yes” to everything that is, no matter what it looks like. Their work allows participants to move through even the most challenging aspects of themselves and reality with a deep sense of safety, curiosity, playfulness, and approval. This introductory evening offers a glimpse into the possibilities of what life can hold when we break free from societal conditioning and learn to embrace the fullness of ourselves and our world - including the light and the dark, the joy and the fear, the beauty and the pain.
