For 2023, the 13 Days of Darkness begins on
FRIDAY DEC 8 and ends on MONDAY DEC 20.

The Winter Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) is THURSDAY DEC 21 at 7:28pm (Pacific).

For each of the 13 Days 12/8 to 12/20:

Ground and center yourself. Since this is about darkness, don’t light candles.


Say:  “HECATE, today I honor the darkness within. I acknowledge and begin to release my feelings of ______.”

Allow yourself to honor whatever comes up IN THE MOMENT. Keep it focused on ONE WORD such as grief, anger, fear, shame, doubt, unworthiness, victimization, depression, self-loathing, jealousy...

Each day repeat the process, working with whatever comes up in the moment. If one particular feeling comes up more than once, that's ok. You may even find that
you need to work with one particular feeling for the entire 13 days.

Thank Hecate on the 13th day.

Exploring Darkness

Our shadow selves are those dark and mysterious places within us that we have refused to shine the “light” on, for one reason or another. The human shadow contains every thought, feeling, desire, and personality trait that we have rejected or suppressed.

Consider this test an initiation into the shadow work path…
