Dancing with the Dark: Winter Solstice with Sharon Blackie, 20 December | Event in Exeter | AllEvents.in Dancing with the Dark: Winter Solstice with Sharon Blackie
In this one-day online Winter Solstice retreat with Sharon Blackie we will gather and embrace the uncertainty of the dark – of the seemingly fallow periods of our lives.

Winter Solstice is a time to immerse ourselves in the cycles of nature: of death and rebirth, of darkness and light. It’s a time to think about change and transformation, letting the long, cold dark strip us down to the bare bones. Let winter strip us bare like an old oak tree. Letting the final leaves that we’re clinging onto fall. Letting it all fall, and see what still holds us upright.

Darkness is not just a lack of light. It isn’t even the opposite of light. It is a wonderful, tangible thing with characteristics all of its own. Darkness is the place where life comes from. Darkness is the great melting pot, the great cauldron of creativity, the womb, the cocoon, the cave. Darkness is a great, wondrous thing of beauty. This is the season of the dark; whilst nevertheless hoping for the return of the light, we should celebrate the beauty of the dark.

Eliot also wrote: ‘At the still point, there the dance is.’ And in this one-day online retreat, a day before Winter Solstice, we’ll learn how to dance with the dark, and how to navigate the times in our lives which seem fallow: the place between stories. We’ll work with fairy tale, myth and poetry, and plunder the depths of our own imagination.
