The Twelve Days of Christmas – Holy Nights Contemplations

25 December,2021 @ 7:00 pm - 5 January,2022 @ 7:45 pm

The Festival of Christmas as the Renewal of the Faculty of Memory 


 The Inner Structure of the Cycle of the Year Reflected in the Twelve Days of Christmas

Presenter: Martin Samson


This online event will be presented as a contemplation with conversational deepening. 

In each session there will be a half-hour consideration of the two themes, which complement each other and set a mood of soul for participants to work with over the ensuing night and day. The final minutes of the session will be for any further considerations and nuances that will help grow the work over the Christmas season in preparation for the coming year. The hope is that each day will have the nurturing aspect of a retreat for resetting our soul for the work in the coming year.
