Mystic Darkness, Mystic Light @ Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat Bahamas

November 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

There is beauty and growth in the presence of both darkness and light ― and both are recurring themes within the mystical treasures of many religions.

There are many references to the light as being synonymous with God. Phrases such as “see the light” or “finding enlightenment” recur throughout the literature of many religions. It is often said that one must pass through the darkness to find the light.

Darkness references, such as in “the dark night of the soul,” can represent confusion or doubt. But it can also mean a time of contemplation, searching within, or entering the great void. In times of introspection and most profound surrender, darkness directs us to complete faith in order to come out the other side.

You are invited to explore the themes of darkness and light in-depth with some of the world’s renowned mystical scholars. You will explore recurring references to darkness and light within mystical spiritual paths such as Kabbalah, Buddhism, and Christianity — and discover the unifying principles within them all.
