When the sun goes, the moon comes” I Ching (The Book of Changes)
In the season of darkness, we seek light. In the season of stillness, we look deep into our souls and ponder life. Join us in an exploration of winter wisdom from sacred and secular traditions found in an ancient Greek Orthodox hymn, an Aboriginal songline, a soft Jewish Shabbat eve tune, a contemporary interpretation of early Chinese philosophy from the I Ching, and a unique rendition of In the Bleak Midwinter, by American composer Frances McCollin, whose blindness in early childhood caused her to see colors when hearing music.
