The Gathering: The Wisdom of Twilight
Facilitated by Rev. Julie Brooks and Rev. Claudia Ruth Kohn
Joseph Campbell writes, “When you cross the threshold, you are passing into the dark forest, taking a plunge into the sea, embarking upon the night sea journey.”
On the cusp of seasonal, spiritual, and many manifestations of societal transformation, we want to invite you to dim the lights at the end of your days and sit with us on the threshold of twilight. We’ll listen to the sounds of the darkening forest and lapping waves of a gentle sea, share poetry, sit together in silence, and reflect on how the Wisdom of Twilight might be speaking to you. We’re so excited to explore what might be dawning and dusking in our lives.
