Lesson Description

Eitan leads us on a journey into the "wilderness" of our own lack of self awareness and comforts us with the understanding that such a counter-intuitive process is riddled with powerful Light and Redemption. During these profoundly negative days, the Light is coaching us to become clean and expose our own negativity. Envisioning the final destination of peace of mind and certainty in the unconditional force of Love can embolden us to get serious with the subtler negativities within us that we prefer to keep buried just under the surface of our awareness.
