There is an exercise that is a blend of two indications from Rudolf Steiner regarding Christmas day in particular and the twelve Holy Nights in general. The particular reference was about a meeting in the spirit of those souls on the path founded by Christian Rosencreutz.

Thanks for sharing that astronomical aspect of the time. That makes it extra powerful!
“Tree Painting as an Esoteric Deed “- can we hear the whole story? Naure is corresponding to our soul’s longing to deal with the darkness and the life during these long and cold winter nights.
Thank you Dennis and Ben for covering so many aspects of our being here on Earth.
Blessings and Love,

Thank you, Dennis and Ben, for sharing this gift. I tried it while on Mount Carmel, in the Holy Land :)
Wow, Tal! That’s a way to really bring the forces. I hope what you offered to the fire made lots of smoke :D
Thank you Dennis and Ben, love the integration with other souls enacting a similar practice especially over this Christmas tide….and even though very far away…..yet finding each other…..
You are welcome Avice. That’s what I love about activity in the spirit, too. It allows souls all over the world to connect for a shared experience, and it doesn’t get muddled by technology 😉
