FInding Light in the Dark Night Seminar & Tele-Class
~A Daylong Seminar Intensive~
Sat, Feb. 13, 10 am-6:30 pm
Come join us for this very special event as we explore the nature of the dark night of the soul, share your process and insights into life’s inversions, and examine how this arduous passage of purification can serve as an evolutionary gateway through a shift in perspective and surrender to the divine mystery.
The wound is the place where Light enters you—Rumi
To identify the gifts, blessings, grace and opportunities that arise from the dark night of the Soul, share the personal impact, and discover ways in which we can support ourselves and each other through this seemingly bleak and harrowing, yet soul rendering and sacred, initiation of the highest order.

The Work ahead: Evoking our Inner Master, Sharing our Sage
Soul uncovery and the unfettered expression of our "inner master," the wise sage in all of us, is the task at hand. Stay tuned for an announcement of our Fall curriculum, events and programs designed for this purpose. There is a huge body of Work of Moriah & the Tibetan that begs to be utilized--fit for soul consumption!Over time the teachings will be made more accessible to anyone and everyone who's interested in taking this next step with us. The plan is to revisit the uplifting and expansive recorded teachings of the Tibetan, Moriah's penetrating, cogent and insightful writing, stimulate our inner knowing, share it together as a group, and apply our refreshed perspective.
Power of group synergy and community
We look forward to strengthening our community, and to experience the power of group synergy in many ways; whether its through phone conferencing, google hangout, skype, livestream or meeting on location in the School studio. So many possibilities through which to commune, as souls come together. This is the School of the Golden Discs' proposal. Care to join us?
In the stillness of the storm
Grief over the physical loss over our Guiding Light, Moriah, has caused me and School staff to travel deep within, suspended in embyonic stillness, nestled in the eye of the hurricane of one of life's intense inversions. It's taking a while, but we accept its own divine timing. All is in divine order and we trust it (we think, LOL).
Future program, summer seminar review
Within a month, you can expect an announcement of our School's first program offering. On July 25th, we help our second seminar since Moriah's passing which addressed the aftershock of loss and devastation. It was deep and transformative and made magical through our candid sharing and exploration of the topic. Unquestionably, the room was graced with the loving presence of the Masters, including Firestar! You could feel them, and for some of us, even "see" them. This collaboration is real and continues...
The power of group synergy came through with flying colors, enhanced by Shaman, Nacela Howe who took us on a shamanic journey followed by a fire ceremony to release the "old" and invite the "new". Backed by her new harmonium, master of the sound current, Eleni Yalanis, led devotional chants and toning, which was woven through the seminar like a golden thread.We so look forward to continuing our seminars and making them available to all who are interested both through the internet and on-site.
So suddenly it's mid August! Like clockwork, the river valley fog has begun to gestate deep in the chalace of the river valley far below our School on the hill, like a dragon back snaking downstream. As the days shorten and the earth cools, these river valley mists thicken and broaden, unfurl and rise with the the sun. When the wind is right, the mists approach, then sift through the apple orchard and envelope the School, as if it were suspended in a cloud. Constant change indeed. Ahh, the mysts of Appalon, so true to the name of our property. And magic abounds!
