Fulfill Your Christmas Longings

Do you ever find at the fend of the holidays, no matter how wonderful they have been, you feel something was missing?

Hiding behind the rich blessings of gifts and food, traditions and celebrations, music and decorations, friends and family there is a dark silent place still longing for …

  • Some new gift of self-love to be unwrapped.
  • Some delicious feast of self-awareness to be prepared and enjoyed.
  • Some tradition of self-attention to be celebrated.

This longing doesn’t happen at any other time of year. Holidays—national, cultural, religious—come and go with the seasons without arousing such a deep, unmet need for going within oneself.

If every Christmas your soul longs for a rebirth of inner meaning, for a renewal of spirit that deepens your sense of self and enriches the coming year…

Give yourself an Inner Christmas!

What a journey that was through the Holy Nights! I learned so much about myself–both my beautiful parts that I can now allow to shine more brilliantly, and the parts that need bolstering and encouragement to step out and show themselves.

This year will include the exciting adventure of integrating these parts, bringing them together, and doing the work of establishing harmony between them.

Hi Lynn! You ARE crazy! In the best possible sense. My husband and I went through your Inner Christmas journey and we can’t put into words how it has absolutely, quantumly, nourished our souls. We are so grateful. Sending you our heartfelt thanks.

Dear Lynn
A dear friend give me “inner christmas” as a gift and it really was the best gift I have received in years. Each night words and theme took me on a tour deeply and I deeply thank you for your wisdom and generosity to share this beauty. I am sharing with my friends.

Expanding Your Inner Christmas

Beyond the Holy Nights and the inspiration of the messages, I offer two programs to expand, deepen and integrate your self imaginations: Inner Advent as preparation for the Holy Nights and Inner Epiphany for resolution and planning for the coming year. In addition, The Six Ways to Celebrate Christmas and Celebrate You, will deepen all aspects of Christmas and enrich everyday of the year.

Inner Advent

A spiritual practice of recollecting, reviewing, and releasing the events of the year emptying and freeing your soul to receive the gifts of the Holy Nights. Learn about Inner Advent here.

Inner Epiphany

There are four possibilities of Epiphany each year. To attend to your Inner Epiphanies bring innocence, wisdom, love and commitment to your year. 

Learn about Inner Epiphany here.

The Six Celebrations Book


This small book offers thought-provoking, heart-expanding explorations of the six celebrations of Christmas: Nature, Nativity, Riches, Relationships, Childhood and Selfhood. The insights and questions will inspire not only a reimagination of your Christmas but bring you to a new perspective on every day of your year. Learn about the Six Celebrations here.



Dear Lynn,

Your posts awaken senses and memories long lost, and it is such a comfort to find them again, especially at this time of year.
I have been working with your Holy Nights posts for the past 5 or 6 years (?) and I so love them!
This year especially they provided some much needed healing to myself.

Your work is so wonderful and I look forward to it every year. I also did your Inner Mother and Inner Father workshop a couple years ago and for the first time worked with your Inner Advent material. I can not describe the healing it has brought me.
Thank you for all the gifts you give us!


About Lynn


For her whole life, Lynn has thought deeply about and been devoted to the meanings and mysteries of being human and the cultivation of the experience of self in herself and others. She is fearless, radical, clear and compassionate in her work as a writer, speaker and mentor.

I love the Holy Nights. Every morning I wake up knowing I must write an Inner Christmas message that thousands of people around the world will be reading in a few hours. In the first years of Inner Christmas, I was so humbled that I could do it.  Now I relax and trust and enjoy the surprise of each message…often like a shepherd hearing angels sing and now and then like a magi following a star.

The Story of Inner Christmas


Inner Christmas was a spontaneous birth right before Christmas, 2004. Lynn came home from last minute shopping in New York City and felt she needed to share with her friends a different Christmas celebration.
