Sunday 22nd March is Mothering Sunday in the UK, now viewed as a chance to recognise the positive role of mothers in our lives. Often posies of daffodils are presented. Image by Mylene2401 from Pixabay.
Mothering Sunday is celebrated by Christians in the UK & Ireland and some other English speaking countries. It takes place on the fourth Sunday in Lent, which is exactly three weeks before Easter Day. It was once observed as a day when people visited their mother church, but has become a day for honouring mothers and exchanging presents with them. Increasingly it's being referred to as Mother's Day, although that name originated as an American secular holiday, celebrated on a different date and quite distinct from the initial UK based Mothering Sunday.
By keeping traditions, communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.
For Joanna's events and courses aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life, including Healing Practitioner Courses, mini-workshops and Forest Bathing+ sessions, see this 2020 Harmony Healing Event Update. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. I don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.
