This is an interesting book — I’ve seen more and more titles exploring darkness and night, shedding light (pun intended) on a subject that so many of us shy away from. Instead, Deborah Eden Tull encourages us to embrace darkness, showing how it has impacted her own life with deeply personal stories and insights.

I am heeding the author’s call at the beginning of the book to move through the chapters slowly. Therefore, I have only made it to chapter 3, but I didn’t want to wait to finish before writing this review. In these first few chapters alone, I have learned so much about darkness and endarkenment, and I can see that this is going to be the most important book that I will read this year (perhaps ever). The weaving of the author’s own life stories into the narrative is intriguing, and makes the information clearer and more grounded. I also am enjoying her use of poetry to give image to her words.

The Mindful Inquiry sections are thought-provoking and eye-opening, as are the suggested Experiential Practices. In fact, I need to stop reading for a while now while I ponder and digest what has been shared so far!

I will be promoting and sharing this book with our SoulCollage community as soon as it is released in September!
