The Adoration of the Golden Calf Picture from the Hortus deliciarum of Herrad of Landsberg 12th centuryMonday 28th September is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) which is the Jewish day of repentance, probably the holiest and most solemn day of the year.  In Israel, it is an annual holiday. There is no public transport, no form of media communication, and all businesses and shops are closed.

It takes place on the tenth day* of Tishrei, the seventh month. In the Western Calender, this means it will occur between 14th September and 14th October.

Yom Kippur commemorates the date Moses returned from Mount Sinai following forty-days of praying for the sins of the Israelites to be forgiven for worshipping the Golden Calf. On his return from Mount Sinai, the Israelites were granted atonement. Image of The Adoration of the Golden Calf is from the Hortus deliciarum of Herrad of Landsberg (12th century).

Jewish holy days begin at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin with fasting and recitation of Kol Nidre before sundown 27th September. This is called tosephet Yom Kippur, (fasting for some of the previous day is required by Jewish law), and ends after sunset the following day.

The central premise of Yom Kippur is atonement and reconciliation. It's customary to wear white as a symbol of purity.

Yom Kippur as a complete day of rest. Therefore, these five traditions are observed:

  1. No eating and drinking
  2. No wearing of leather shoes
  3. No bathing or washing
  4. No anointing oneself with perfumes or lotions
  5. No marital relations

It is believed that this action will return the body to its original state. All healthy men over 13 years or women over 12 years are expected participate.

Yom Kippur marks the end of ten Days of Awe (a penitential period) which starts with Rosh Hashanah; the season of repentance and prayer. On Rosh Hashanah, Jewish tradition believes that everyone's fate for the coming year will be inscribed by God into the Book of Life, and on Yom Kippur, the verdict is sealed.

A traditional Yom Kippur greeting is G’mar Hatimah Tovah (may you be sealed for a good year of life).  Resource: officeholidays.com

By keeping traditions, Jewish communities can retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony.

The next virtual healing circle is 7.30-9.30pm (UK time), 1st October, which is the Ivy Full Moon and costs £10. During this 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 Joanna's work in general.  
 
Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 is now availalbe as virtual interactive training modules, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular.
