Hosted by the Santa Cruz & Monterey Bay Anthroposophical Society, a Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America

Each Night (except Dec 31) will begin at 7pm with the reading of one Chapter, beginning on Dec 26 until Jan 6. After the reading, we will have some social time with snacks, which are provided by the host. Please join us, even if you cannot commit to all evenings.

Saturday, December 31st will be held at Camphill and we will start at 2:30 pm, because we will also commemorate the burning of the first Goetheanum exactly 100 years ago.

Here is an overview and timeline of the events for Saturday, December 31, 2022:

2:30-3:30              Holy Nights Reading of “The Gospel of St John and Its Relation to the Other Gospels”
