Description

The twelve holy nights between Christmas and Epiphany on January 6th offer a wonderful time of year for spiritual meditation and deepening. 

In the ancient Norwegian folk legend of Olaf Åsteson, in the darkness of winter he experienced an initiation into the great secrets of existence. His experience helped him shoulder responsibility for his task here on Earth, giving him renewed vision and decisiveness. 

Frans Lutters has led numerous workshops on this theme, and his insights are collected in the commentary and the meditations in this book, alongside the text of the Dream Song. 

Working with the sacred nights provides an inspiring opportunity to start the new year with revitalized consciousness and enthusiasm.
