 {Finding the Gold in the Darkness: The Way of Soul in Troubled Times // 9.13-15, 2019} Registration is now open for a very special retreat with Jim Hall & Cheryl Hellner . . . "We live in a time of intense turmoil -- social, political, and planetary. But the deeper disturbance is at the level of soul. We have lost the capacity to face the darkness without falling into despair or denial. But the ancient wisdom of all our spiritual traditions says that if we can turn toward the darkness, we will be amazed and transformed by what we find there. We will find gold." // Registration and more information at our events page http://rollingridge.net/gold_darkness/ . . . Solitude [Collage]. Doug Van Houten ©, used by permission
 "Time and other barriers disappear when you find yourself following the same labyrinth path of someone who has walked before you. The weight of our lives leaving an impression in the snow that holds it through small eternities for the next wanderer to wonder over." // Read more from a moving essay by Katie Jones Pomeroy, now up on the blog: rollingridge.net/west . . . #rollingridgestudyretreat

“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”
