Ho Ho Ho! The Dark Night of the Soul!

Ho Ho Ho! The Dark Night of the Soul!!

It's December. The season of "Ho ho ho", "Jolly jolly" and "Festivals of Light".

A perfect time to experience the Dark Night of the Soul.

At least, it seems to be for me :-)

Years ago, when I wrote about the Dark Night of the Soul at, it was from the perspective of having gone through it. I had been divorced, homeless, and nearly penniless.

Having lost everything that I thought defined who I was, I had the opportunity to ask "Who am I... really?"

That one question led to years of exploration and experiences that can only be described as "miraculous".

I have spent the last seven years sequestered in the foothills of the Siskiyou mountains of Southern Oregon - a place that I believe is rich with spiritual energy. It was here that I received the inspiration and energy to create I know it has had a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of lives.

Then, a few years ago, I launched the Mind With Heart Virtual Learning Center. It was beautiful. I loved working on it. But it never really took off, and the technical challenges were overwhelming. So I took it down.

Now here I am - with plans to bring the Virtual Learning Center back to life after investing in almost a year of technical and business training, intending to do it "right" this time - and finding myself smack dab in the middle of another "Dark Night of the Soul".


If you go to, like I did, and watch the videos and visit the links there, you will find that the Dark Night is a phase some people go through when there is an intense spiritual transformation is about to occur.

What this tells me, I hope, is that in order to make the Mind With Heart Virtual Learning Center all that it can be, I need to experience a deeper transformation. Something bigger and more challenging than the one that allowed me to author MFL.

Or, maybe there won't be a Virtual Learning Center. Maybe there will be something better?

Whatever it is, I am grateful for this Holiday "gift". I know I will find an even brighter, clearer light when I finish opening it. Which I have every intention of sharing - with you!!
