Opening to the Light

A Retreat with Paula D’Arcy

Paula D’Arcy

Paula D’Arcy

Drawing on themes from her newest book, Stars at Night: When Darkness Unfolds as Light, D’Arcy explores how learning to move through and past life’s inevitable disappointments and losses opens a door to new awareness. In the end, the darkness is recognized as the rich foundation for a larger life and the possibility of awakening to a new way of being.
