398-5-The Dark Night

“Have you ever heard of “The Dark Night of the Soul?” How do we know if we are in it?

Today we continue our series of “A Course in Darkness” with a look at The Dark Night of the Soul. The term itself makes us feel like we might understand what this experience is like, but as you’ll see, that is usually not the case.

Join me now as I try and describe the Dark Night and its true purpose, with the hope that if we ever find ourselves in its grasp, that we can embrace it and the transformation it brings.
