What we're about

These meetings are run by Joanna Bristow-Watkins; a professional healer specialising in practising and teaching Reyad Sekh Em Egyptian Alchemy Healing. She is a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine and has been teaching healing since 1999.

Joanna believes that our predecessors saw Angels and Deities (both Goddesses and Gods) as manifestations of Nature. For more about her background, see About Joanna on her Harmony Healing website. (https://harmonyhealing.co.uk/about-joanna)

This Meetup is dedicated to helping us align more closely with nature through various celestial intermediaries.

We have recently amended the Meetup name to allow for the discussion and demonstration of other complementary wellbeing 'tools' which help to connect us to nature, such as alchemy, crystals, sound, breathwork, essential oils, networking, sharing and talking therapies. Joanna believes that a portfolio of approaches allows for a more flexible and personalised toolkit for members to improve their wellbeing from a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual perspective.

There will also be occasional meetings for qualified healers and wellbeing practititioners to network with each other as well as healing shares offfering individual healings and global healing group meditations.

Joanna is an authority on Ancient Egyptian Alchemy. As many of you may know, Ancient Egypt was known to the local inhabitants as Khem (or Khemit/Khemet), so Joanna favours the description 'Khemitian Deities'.

Interestingly, the Khemitian names for their Deities was Neter/Ntr (spelled either way 'phonetically' as heiroglyphs did not include vowels) with the plural being Neteru. Joanna believes that our word nature is derived from this.

There will be some scheduled meetings to discuss Khemitian Deities as well as Celtic/Pagan/Gaelic Goddesses particularly those who bless and facilitate working with landscapes in the UK and abroad. We will also look at Chris Street's Sacred Geometry of London, the local leylines and working with the Goddess of London and Elen of the Ways. So it is Joanna's intention to invite specialists such as Chris Street and Caroline Wise to address the group at future meetings.

Joanna is also sister to the UK best-selling angelology author Angela McGerr (http://www.angelamcgerr.com). Angela specialises in Essene Angelology. The Essenes were a religious order living in the Dead Sea area around 2000 years ago. They communed with angels on a regular basis. Essene angelology revolves around learning these angel guardians and inviting them into your life.

With regard to angels:

Are you open to the idea of angels but would appreciate another (non-religious) explanation on who/what they are? This group discusses how they might just be envisaged as high frequency light beings.

Furthermore, if you are one of many practitioners who is unable to see them, Joanna will explain how that very frustration led her sister Angela McGerr (yes she was named Angela at birth!) to create a 21st Century approach to angelology including a way of invoking angels feeling them around you. Angela is now a UK best seller in this niche market (almost one million copies sold), with 10 published books on angelology.

Angela will not be at these meet-up events in person (unless we announce otherwise), but here is You Tube clip of Angela showing how to call in angels: -

Join us to meet other local people who believe in Angels and Deities as manifestations of nature and who are interested in learning how to use the Angelic Energies to empower all areas of life.

Joanna is also acquainted with other British angel authorities including Joylina Goodings and Daisy Foss. Whilst Joanna is most familiar with Angela's philosophies on angels, it is her view that as angelology is not an exact science (or indeed an art), there is room for lots of interpretations in this field.

Tutor = Joanna Bristow-Watkins
Joanna Bristow-Watkins spent over 15 years in senior management specialising in customer care and training. Driven by a desire for greater inner peace, she overcame her initial scepticism of energy healing to become a practitioner and teacher of Egyptian Healing and a leader of spiritual pilgrimages. Several trips to Egypt guided Joanna to Hakim, an indigenous oral tradition keeper of Khemitology (Egyptology according to the tribal elders), which he taught to Joanna.

More about Zoom
Virtual Events will be live on Zoom. If you do not have Zoom, visit https://zoom.us/ and sign up for free.

All you need to take part is a computer with a webcam and microphone. A camera is not essential but without it, the experience is less interactive and would not be recommended for a longer workshop.

Joanna Bristow-Watkins spent over 15 years in senior management specialising in customer care and training. Driven by a desire for greater inner peace, she overcame her initial scepticism of energy healing to become a practitioner and teacher of Egyptian Healing and leader of spiritual pilgrimages. Several trips to Egypt led her to develop Reyad Sekh Em® - an ultra-high vibrational Egyptian alchemical healing system which harnesses the elemental healing rays of earth, air, fire, water and spirit with etheric crystalline and angelic energies plus sound vibration and sacred breathing.

Following various trips to Masada Mountain and Qumran, both on the shores of the Dead Sea, Joanna felt a strong connection to the Essenes; an ancient religious order living in these two areas 2000 years ago. Joanna is sister to best-selling angel author Angela McGerr (10 titles published including several angel card sets, total sales approaching 1 million copies) and fully embraces Angela’s Essene Angel philosophies. In 2019, Joanna trained as a Forest Bathing+ Guide with the Forest Bathing Institute to promote connecting with nature through mindful sensory exercises during immersion in UK woodlands. This has strengthened her bond with the angels. See https://harmonyhealing.co.uk/about-joanna/about-jo-bristow-watkins for more.

Harmony in Nature Forest Bathing Therapy session, London SW20, 1.30-4pm, £36.75

Experience how woodland can help your Physical, Mental & Emotional Health. Cost is £35 plus Paypal fee = £ 36.75.

We are excited to offer our first afternoon Forest Bathing session in the London area at Cannon Hill Common, SW20 9DB near Wimbledon Chase, Raynes Park. The area is easily accessible by public transport.

We will take you on a 2½ hour journey through the beautiful landscaped park, nestled in this little known oasis of calm within Greater London.

Forest Bathing+ is based on the Japanese art of Shinrin-Yoku and involves a slow exploration of nature through your senses. Not only is this calming and relaxing but it also has well documented therapeutic benefits.

Forest Bathing+ has been scientifically proven to have beneficial effects, including stress reduction. You can learn more about the practice and benefits on the https://tfb.institute (The Forest Bathing Institute website) or via the short videos linked below.

Ancient civilisations frequently venerated nature and gained insight and wisdom from their relationship with the natural world. Despite the fact that society is now more disconnected from the countryside, research supports the physiological benefits of Forest Bathing. Trees emit raw essential oils known as ‘phytoncides’ which have been proven to evoke relaxation and wellbeing. By immersing ourselves in ancient woodlands, we re-connect with nature and reinforce this relationship with the natural world.

The Forest Bathing Institute (TFBI) has pioneered the addition of enhanced sensory exercises and deep meditations to create Forest Bathing+, which helps promote mindfulness and reconnects your body and soul to nature. Evidence suggests that Forest Bathing + can:

* lower blood pressure,
* decrease stress,
* improve cardiovascular and metabolic health,
* reduce blood-sugar levels,
* enhance concentration and memory,
* lift depression,
* lead to better pain management,
* increase energy,
* boost the immune system by increasing the body’s natural killer (NK)
cell count,
* increases anti-cancer protein production,
* facilitate weight loss.

50% of the benefit is proven to come from the phytoncides emanating from trees when walking in an ambient forest environment. However, mindfulness has a separate evidence base for inducing a 'feel good factor' as well as demonstrating a reduction in stress and an improvement in mental health and wellbeing.

Cannon Hill Common has several lovely ancient trees (likely over[masked] years old) and some charming walkways under the canopy of woodland, so we are confident that participants will experience therapeutic benefits of connecting mindfully in nature.

DOGS: Regrettably we cannot accept dogs on our Forest Bathing+ sessions unless they are trained Guide Dogs.

INCLEMENT WEATHER: We operate in all weathers (we just request that you wear appropriate clothing) except winds exceeding 30mph and/or electrical storms due to safety reasons.

Meetup is not the only booking site, so sales and availability on here will not reflect the actual situation.
