The Holy Nights Journal was a method begun by William Bento many years ago. Since William’s passing, Alan Thewless (adjunct faculty of the Association for Anthroposophic Psychology) has continued this tradition with in-depth explorations of the days and nights from December 24 until Epiphany, inviting others to participate in these re-imaginings of important events, each time with the new view through streaming through the celestial phenomena of this particular year. In other words, the movement of the stars and planets ensure that each traditional day will be newly—and differently—experienced. And then that is projected onto a particular month in the year to come, and helps to summarize a particular month of year that has passed. As the flyer below shows, you can order most easily from this link: http://www.tir-anna.com/holy-nights-journal.html. I am told that bulk orders are best phoned in (# on the flyer below).
The relation to anthroposophic psychology is the exploration of how these phenomena relate to:
- Content—how celestial phenomena relate to the physical occurrences of my life
- Expression—the life streaming through me, the quickening of the counterparts of these holy days in my daily life
- Relation—how do these relationships in the heavens stream newly and refreshingly into my relationships with others
- Call—does this re-awaken what calls me into activity in the world?
