Every new moon we get together and go into the darkness. One paradigm behind the meditation is that we fill our minds with images and thoughts, and that the eyes are the main vehicle through which images flow to our brains unbidden.
As life becomes more complex, there are more images and more to contend with. This meditation is an antidote to the process, consisting of allowing the darkness (as in complete blackout) to completely fill your eyes for an hour and then sitting for an additional half hour in silence.
A meditation on the New Moon, in complete darkness, for an hour of a fresh beginning. Clearing the screen of the mind.
