As you know by now, Krista is someone who loves to push the limits of what’s possible, to expand her own lived experience and learn new ways of seeing or thinking about things. She travels this path (mostly) unafraid and open-minded.

But the prospect of a darkness retreat, she admits, was a scary one.

Finding Everything in Nothing: Krista’s Darkness Retreat Recap

In this special solo episode, Krista recaps her three-day, four-night darkness retreat at Sky Cave Retreats in Oregon and recounts the deep spiritual and emotional lessons she’s taken away from it. 

There was rage, sadness, and grief; great joy and hours of bodywork; daily peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – and of course, complete and utter darkness. You don’t want to miss this.

“Part of me was like… Why the fuck am I here? What am I doing? What is this?” – Krista Williams, Almost 30 Podcast

We also talk about:

  • What is a darkness retreat?
  • Setting her intentions
  • Patience with bodywork (5+ hrs/day)
  • Waves of rage, grief, and sadness 
  • Logistics, food, and environment
  • Sleeping and how to determine time
  • Letting it rip on Day 1
  • The peace of Day 2
  • Emotional release on Day 3
  • Taking the goggles off 
  • Integration and lessons learned
