Welcoming Back the Light

December 29, 2009 at 2:14 am

The darkness of winter brings with its stillness and quiet a greater appreciation for the liveliness and radiance we associate with the light of summer. In winter we tend to crave the light and resist the natural slowing down of time and life around us. Living in a world which places value on fast-paced productivity and “burning the candle at both ends,” we can quickly forget the value of winter in our lives. Winter gifts us with an invitation to look inward – to visit our own places of darkness and welcome back the light.

During the recent Winter Solstice, I reflected upon the healing experiences I’ve been honored to witness over this past year. The most profound moments shared with patients arrived through stories and insights that reminded individuals of their own spark and brilliance. As a practitioner, I am learning more and more that the process of healing is a journey back to the light. Facing the darkness guides the way to where the light is most needed.

“So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” – T.S. Eliot
