Nigredo, the Blackening.
The Nigredo or putrefaction is the first step of alchemical opus, when everything is still melted and upside down.
My work this year has been all about grief, mourning and the destructive phase of a new life cycle. Pain as transformation. Internal chaos, conflict and struggle can lead to a better knowlege of ourselves and our path.
