Putting this festival together took so much of my energy, but connecting with so many epic beings has been incredible and shifting my focus from hurt and sadness over losing my mom to heights of inspiration and healing has been super helpful.
The Zohar (book of Jewish mystical secrets) says that darkness isn’t an entity unto itself, it is the absence of light. And if darkness is the absence of light, then a little bit of light will illuminate a lot of darkness.
