Sunday 4th July is Thank You Day in the UK. The last eighteen months has been a testing experience for everyone, yet also a bonding time as families, neighbours and local communities have helped each other through the crisis.
We’ve been reminded that, when the chips are down, all that really matters is that we’ve been here for one another. Before any kind of ‘old normality’ can resume, it’s been suggested that we should acknowledge our gratitude.
The idea started when 13 individuals proposed Sunday 4th July as a Thank You Day in the UK and now the initiative has been backed by celebrities, religious leaders and sports stars, local councils and schools, businesses and communities throughout the UK.
So, in whatever way you choose, why not say a heart-felt thank you to your friends, family, pets, your supportive local community, the NHS and of course nature – which has remained a nurturing and reliable wellbeing resource throughout.
Sunday 4th July is American Independence Day; the national day of the United States.
This marks the anniversary of unanimous adoption of the Declaration of Independence, by the Second Continental Congress in 1776.
The Declaration announced that the 13 colonies claimed their separation from England, which eventually led to the formation of the United States. They were now free, united and independent and therefore no longer subordinate to King George III, who was Monarch of Britain at the time.
Independence Day is a federal holiday in USA to commemorate the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on 4th July, 1776. The Congress had voted to declare independence on 2nd July, but it was not declared until two days later.
Independence Day is frequently associated with fireworks, family gatherings, baseball games, carnivals, picnics fairs, barbeques, concerts, political speeches, and festivities, as well as various public and private events celebrating the government, history and traditions of the United States.
By keeping traditions and celebrating national festivals, as well as starting new initiatives, communities retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your wellbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is on Friday 23rd July, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT +1). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates.
During these monthly session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest bathing+ sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits (see Forest Bathing+ section of this site on the purple navigation bar above for more about this concept and dates of our events).

A number of virtual courses are on offer, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.
