The Night of the Senses & the Night of the Soul

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

These two nights figure prominently in one thread of western spirituality, but what are they, what are their characteristics, and what purpose do they serve? This workshop will address these questions.

The dark night of the senses usually precedes the dark night of the soul, and during this phase, one feels unmoved by their prayer life. No matter how much a person perseveres in prayer, there is a time of silence and spiritual dryness where one feels they are unable to receive much in return.

The dark night of the soul is a state where consolation is gone everywhere, not just spiritually. There is no sight of God and a person perceives that there is no hope and no heaven.

You may have heard these terms before, but what do they really mean in our daily spiritual life? Join Reverend Michael Gemignani to dig deeper into the clarity and the fruits that God is drawing forward within our spiritual journey.
