Every Evening Comes the Moon
Awakening through the Darkness of the Separate Self
by Brian Theriault

Brian takes us on a journey into the paradox of the human condition, to the depths of human suffering, where there exists the transformational healing opportunity of waking up to the essence of who we are. This is described in many contemplative wisdom traditions that point to a reality that exists beyond the identification with the separate self - the sense of me; to a reality that is unconditioned and considered the ultimate medicine to pain and suffering. With the phases of the Moon serving as a metaphor for waking up out of the darkness of the separate self, this book opens our eyes to the healing power of awakening to our true nature in the midst of some of our most terrifying experiences. The states of confusion, fear, and shame; the experiences of trauma, addictions, grief and loss, and the suffering of spiritual seeking itself, can be met with the restorative power of awakening. When we embody surrender, grace, attention and openness in our darkest moments, we can begin to see that in the evening of despair, lies the moonlight of our own awakening.
