Twelve Nights

A time of stillness and an opportunity to reflect on 2023 and prepare for 2024

Time for inner stillness for women and children

where we create space for self-reflection, setting intentions, and seeking guidance from higher realms or ancestors.

A time for spiritual connection and stillness

What are the Twelve Nights - Rauhnächte?

The Rauhnächte, also known as the Twelve Nights or the Twelve Holy Nights, are a mystical and spiritually significant period in Germanic and Alpine folklore. Spanning from December 25th (Christmas) to January 6th (Epiphany), these nights are believed to be a time when the boundary between the physical and spiritual worlds is thin.

During this period, various customs, rituals, and divination practices are observed to protect against negative energies, gain insights into the future, and set intentions for the upcoming year. The Twelve Nights are a blend of ancient traditions, folklore, and spirituality, celebrated in different ways across various European regions.

This year's Twelve Nights are marked with planet Mercury travelling backward across the sky which we refer to as "Mercury retrograde". We often feel confusion, delay, and frustration during Mercury retrogrades as Mercury governs various aspects of communication, encompassing listening, writing, reading, speaking, and related activities.

Mercury retrogrades are an excellent time to sit in stillness to review the past and plan for the future.

During the Twelve Nights - Rauhnächte, we'll use the energy of the last Mercury retrograde of 2023 for exactly that: stillness, reflection, and for the communication with ourselves and/or our children to nourish the relationship with have with our heart and the relationship with our children.

Spiritual Insights

It's such a spiritually potent time when it's easier to connect with higher consciousness and gain insights into your life path. Rituals and divination practices during this time provide guidance and clarity.


The Twelve Nights are a time for deep self-reflection and introspection. We use this period to assess our past year, identify areas of growth, and set intentions and goals for the upcoming year.


Rauhnächte - Twelve Nights are for divination practices to gain insight into the future. This may involve methods like tarot card readings, scrying or dream interpretation.

Community and Family

Participating in Rauhnächte traditions foster a sense of community and connection with cultural heritage. It also provides an opportunity for your family to come together and connect.

Renewal and Cleansing

I see the Twelve Nights as a time for purification and renewal. Rituals and cleansing activities help us release negativity and start the new year with a fresh perspective.

Setting Intentions

The transition into a new year is an opportune time to set intentions and goals for personal growth, health, and happiness. By participating in the Twelve Nights you can expect to reflect on the past year and set positive intentions for the future.

Nature and Silence

I like to take advantage of the stillness of winter nights during the Twelve Nights to connect with nature, take peaceful walks, and engage in practices that connect me with nature such as star-gazing.

Everything is available to you when you are ready to receive it

Let go of what doesn't serve you anymore and open your heart for abundance

Twelve Nights rituals give you the opportunity to set your intentions, nurture the relationship with your own heart and soul and if it feels right, can be a time for you to honour your ancestors, all the women that came before you and paved the way for your life. They didn't only pass down unresolved trauma, but also an abundance of wisdom that we tend to overlook.

The rituals and daily reflections during the Twelve Nights give you a beautiful opportunity to discover that wisdom with love and gratitude.

Stefanie Fernandes

Trauma therapist & conscious parenting coach

Along my journey as a trauma therapist and trauma-informed parent coach, I come to understand that there is no one-size fits all when it coms to do the inner work and soul-searching.

Our subconscious mind holds so much power, and we'll utilize that power for positive change in 2024.

In this course of Rauhnächte - The Twelve Nights, I bring my personal experience from this magical time in between years and share with you my very personal collection of traditions and rituals.

As a mom myself, I will guide you through the Twelve Nights with your child just like how we do it in our home to foster connection, stillness and mindfulness. This is especially welcome after a time that is filled with excitement for kids and a long to-do list for parents in December.

What do you need to participate?

You are welcome exactly as you are

No previous experience or knowledge required

The course is designed in a way that benefits you who are new to The Twelve Nights and also you who is already well versed in the rituals of Rauhnächte.

Expect to invest around 40 min every day

for daily meditation and ritual at your own pace.

What else do I need?

We work with an incense burner, charcoal and various incenses, this is not mandatory though. You are welcome to choose one of the two ready-made packages after you signed up. I will send you all the utensils you need to your doorstep.

We start on 22 December with a workshop for winter solstice

You will receive daily content that you can work through at your own pace whenever it suits you and your family life best.
