Embracing the Darkness – Christine Valters Paintner

December 8, 2019

“Embracing the darkness . . . does not mean carrying a light into the dark, it means walking right into the darkness and exploring its landscape so that our other senses become heightened and attuned to the sound of seeds jostling deep beneath the black soil, to hear the slow in and out breath of animals in hibernation, to feel our own heartbeats and the heartbeats of those we love, to experience the pulsing of womb sounds within us just before the water gets ready to break.”
