Thursday 25th November is Thanksgiving in the US calendar. Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday in November (different in Canada) and is a family day and public holiday to express gratitude for one’s material and spiritual possessions.
It is sometimes called American Thanksgiving (outside the United States) to distinguish it from the Canadian holiday, which falls on the 2nd Monday in October. Orginating as a harvest festival, the centerpiece of Thanksgiving celebrations is still the Thanksgiving dinner, consisting of foods and dishes indigenous to the Americas, such as turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, squash, maize (corn), green beans, with pumpkin pie for pudding. in American culture, Thanksgiving is regarded as being the start of the fall–winter holiday season, culminating with Christmas then New Year.
Traditional festivals like this help local communities feel grateful and 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 1st December for three consecutive Wednesdays with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness, 7.15-9.30pm UK time (GMT).
Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits.
The next Full Moon monthly Unity Consciousness Meditation is Saturday 18th December at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £20 (+ £1 Paypal fee). 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 my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme.
We are also running a New Year New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2022. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 2nd January and 1st February plus Full Moon on 17th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Tiger (1st February). Costing £155, more at the Harmony Website.
Currently, MP3 meditations and distant readings and healings are proving popular and we offer Harmony Healing Vouchers for any value for use on Harmony Healing services and Harmony in Nature vouchers for Forest Bathing vouchers (£35).
