So you’ve come to the threshold of a season
Take a cue from Sister Aspen
and lay all your old answers down
You’ve received an invitation from darkness
to winter well
and the cave comes calling.
Enter the cave with a child’s heart
and a warrior’s wound
Asking all the impossible questions
impervious to troublesome answers
Fatten yourself up with them
and curl up for a mountain’s rest
You will find that winter
was waiting for you as well
and needs your warmth
The fire around which the season turns
dances in your belly
The company you keep
will become the soil of spring
The dreams you cook together
will become the tulip’s tip
For now, it is enough to know
that the cave is equally your home
within which so much lives.
-Ryan Van Lenning
I’m calling in a small group of Co-Spelunkers of Wondering into the Cave to slow down and dive deep into the caverns of our Whole Self and Season in order to discover what emerges in the fruitful darkness.
WITHIN THE CAVE SOMETHING PULSES is a 6-week interactive experience leading up to the Winter Solstice & into the new year to sink into the Big Silence where we can hear ourselves—not the voice of society, not the voices of family and friends, but our own Sovereign Voice and Inner Guide.
