Celebrating a rich festival life


If you are new to festivals, then sit back and let us bring you a beautiful way to journey through the year. If you have been celebrating all along then we hope you will find something fun and refreshing here for you and your family.

At Auriel's Light we love nurturing parents as much as children, so take some time, grab a cup of tea and have some fun with us. 


Auriel's Light is a 508c1A non profit ministry serving parents all over the world. Our goal is to bring conscious parenting resources to families. Please consider a tax deductible donation. Your donation helps us with costs associated with Auriel's Light, including paying our team for working on these resources.

If our festival resources are helpful to your family, please consider a donation of support.

Welcome to Epiphany, Meditation 20:35, Star Affirmation Cards 26:53, Window Stars 34:30, Candle Supplies 44:09

While this indeed is a celebration of "revealing" there are other things to consider as well. Steiner discussed the esoteric truths that come through the Magi and their gifts, the meaning of the gifts and the ties to other ancient teachings. If you'd like links to some of his work on this topic, drop us a note.

This is a great conversation with Bridgette Siepker, an amazing teacher from our school, Seasons of Seven Virtual School. Bridgette is heading to the Christian Community Seminary for training this year and she opened up to chat with me about Steiner's cycle of the year and celebrating as adults.

I dare to fight fierce dragons bold.
