Who’s Afraid of the Dark?

Autumn is a season of transition and letting go. We look outside and see the leaves changing colors and falling. The interfaith calendar for this period contains two holidays that contemplate the relationship between light and darkness–Diwali, which takes place this coming week, and Samhain, at the end of the month. What is it about the coming darkness that makes us so uncomfortable? What feelings does it evoke? Join me this week as we explore the spiritual practice of walking in the dark.
