This statue, which was hand carved by Hank Schlau and hand painted by Karen Schlau, incorporates many of the symbols in John’s poem “The Dark Night of the Soul,” a poem about the stages of mystical prayer, the final level being unification with “the beloved” (the divine), here depicted as a child. The poem, thus, is ultimately about rising from suffering to knowledge and peace.

After escaping his captors, John fell into a state of profound ecstasy and wrote Dark Night of the Soul. Later, he added an important commentary to his poem to guide other searching souls along the arduous path to communion with God. Here, for the first time, a scholar unaffiliated with the Catholic Church has translated this timeless work. Mirabai Starr, who has studied Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism, lends the seeker’s sensibility to John’s powerful text and brings this classic work to the twenty-first century in a brilliant and beautiful rendering.
