Dark Side of the Moon
March 2023 Practices • 11-Feb-2021
One of the lunar phases is called the New Moon, when the sun and the moon are on the same side of the Earth, giving the perspective that the Dark Side of The Moon is facing us, or that the moon has turned inward, perhaps to regroup and reboot so she can shine again.
We’d do well to allow ourselves phases of outward luminescence and inward retreat too.
PS - Listening to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album while practicing should be a given, no? 😜
This practice supports a turning inward to fill up and regain the strength and enthusiasm to begin again and have a fresh start.
