In the writings of contributors Doug Christie, Ruben Martinez, Dave Denny, and Tessa Bieleki, we are reminded that the desert is a primal place for contemplative retreats, especially during the darkest times in the calendar cycle like winter solstice.
Take time out and explore both the darkest of this week and the open questions hidden in the spaciousness of the desert. After so much turmoil in our society this last year, give yourself a chance to go dormant and dream, give yourself space to walk in silence.
Don’t look for immediate answers or solutions. Just listen, rest, enjoy the silence. All will emerge unfettered from such humble acts.
