Thursday 23rd November is the Egyptian celebration Khoiak and Nehebkau on Wednesday 29th November. The Egyptian Year was split into three seasons (divided into 4 months of 30 days), commencing with Akhet in early August, then Peret from late November to early April and Shomu from early April until mid July. Khoiak was a sombre celebration to complete the first season; later associated with the death of Asar (Osiris). However, it was followed closely by Nehebkau - marking the start of the next season Peret - and was seen as a kind of rebirth process.
29th November is the Ancient Egyptian celebration of Nehebkau, which literally meant 'he who unites the Kas'; the Ka being the body double which we might interpret as spirit or soul. See the upstretched arm Ka image to left, illustrated by Peter Lomas.
Nehebkau was depicted in the form of a snake with arms and legs and occasionally wings! He was yet another Deity associated with protection and magic.
Ancient Egyptian Traditional festivals like this helped local communities feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives.
Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 - our next interactive training course series continues 30th November with Violet Flame of Amenti, 7.305-9.45pm UK time (GMT).
Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is Wednesday 27th December at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT). 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. There are multi-buy packages for regular attendees. Book at the Harmony Shop.
During these monthly sessions, 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.
We are also running a New Year New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2023. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 11th January and 9th/10th February plus Full Moon on 5th February), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (25th January) and ending on the 10th February. Costing £177 (£155 early bird if paid by 31st December), more at the Harmony Website.
Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits.
If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucher for a birthday or other celebratory occasion?
