🌌Twelthtide - Season of Epiphany: A journey into the depths of silence and reflection 🌌

During the atmospheric winter season, there is a period that has been considered sacred by many cultures for centuries: The Rauhnächte = Twelthtide Season of Epiphany

This special time, traditionally between 24 December and 6 January, is known for its profound spiritual significance and offers a unique opportunity for inner contemplation and reflection.

What are the Rauhnächte?

The Twelve Nights are nights of transition and transformation, rooted in ancient Germanic and Celtic customs.

They symbolise a time when the boundary between the material and spiritual worlds is particularly permeable, allowing for profound insights and revelations. Why are the Rauhnächte so important?

At this time of year, nature retreats and we humans are also invited to focus on our inner selves.

It is a time to let go of old burdens and set new intentions. Twelfth Night serves as a mirror of our soul, helping us to gain clarity about our lives. The benefits of the Rauhnächte/Twelfth Night:

  • Inner clarity: Twelfth Night provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past year and gain clarity about your personal and professional goals.

  • Realignment: They allow you to realign yourself and set your intentions for the coming year.

  • Spiritual renewal: This time can be used to deepen spiritual practices and forge a deeper connection with yourself and the universe.

What do the different nights mean?

Each night represents a month in the year and a task. If you like, you can work on a different theme each day.

Each day Ritual:

25 December - January: Looking back, letting go of the old

  • Question: What do I want to take with me, what do I want to let go of?

  • Ritual: Write down old burdens and superfluous things and burn them in a bowl.
