13 Holy Nights 2018 Is Now Closed

13 Guided Meditations inspired by the Mystic Poets to help us get quiet, go within, and listen to the Great Reveal


Are You Ready to Dive In?

This time of year it can feel as if the world is upside down. Expectations are magnified. Time feels pressured. It’s easy to get lost to ourselves and to forget our true belonging.

But during the holy-days, when it’s the darkest dark outside, is also the perfect time to let our eyes grow wide and full of stars—to begin a new, to access wonder. There is a territory vaster than our own Souls ready to reveal itself to us now. Beyond worry. Or planning. Or thought. Or contemplation. Or shoulds. Or roles. Or expectations. Beyond time even–the great. timeless now of constant creation.

We are being asked to get quiet, and allow the never before seen ways to come forward. To root deeper into the Real. To trust and let go of all that we have known so that what wants to be known through us can reveal.

The Holy-days are a sacred pause, the liminal space between darkness and light. An in-between place to get quiet, take stock, dream, and allow the seeds for the next year to be planted. But often we forget. And get caught in chaos and outward focus. Or in aloneness and separation.

That’s when it’s time to go within and find the place that never was, or never could be separate from Source. To let the dream that is wanting to be born to dream us.


“It’s time to go into the dark

where the night has eyes to recognize its own.

There you can be sure

you are not beyond love.”

~David Whyte


What Are the 13 Holy Nights?

The 13 Holy Nights is an esoteric practice from the Anthroposophic tradition (via Rudolf Steiner and others) designed to help us tap into the spirit of the season and listen to the small, still voice within. This time of year is the darkest in the Northern Hemisphere, but it is also one of the most luminous, when our light is bright and Source is dreaming us into form.

The 13 Holy Nights practice begins at sunset on December 24th and goes through sunset on January 6th. This is a time of dreaming, hibernation, listening, and paying attention to how Source is planting its seeds in us for the coming year. According to some traditions, the first of the Holy Nights (December 24th-December 25th) contains the imprint for the entire next year, while each of the subsequent nights contains the imprint for one of the months. (For example, sunset December 25th-sunset December 26th represents January, while sunset December 26th-sunset December 27th represents February, etc.).

Practicing during the Holy Nights doesn’t require much. Just a journal, perhaps a candle, your own curiosity, and a small window of time to go within and listen.

I was first introduced to this practice in 2003 and have been doing it every year since. It is one of my favorite things to do. Last year, I decided to add guided meditations to the mix, inspired by the mystic poets, and share them with all of you to help guide our collective practice. I had 85 people sign up to join me from all over the world. Many are still writing to tell me how powerful their 13 Holy Nights practice was, so I’ve decided to offer it again this year with a whole new set of meditations (or “listenings”) and poetry.

No matter what your religious or spiritual background you can participate in this practice of deep listening and setting the tone for your new year.

If you feel called, I invite you join me for this internal, dreamtime journey. To re-member the light and listen to what dream is wanting to dream itself through you and into form.
