The Healing Weekends in Somerset are an annual trip for us. One that is so enjoyable for the Handfastings that we officiate and also because I, Sheila, also get to give Healing too. Not many know but I am also a trained Healer with the Kent International Healing Association. It is something that I have done for many years but generally only for family and friends. Only in the recent years have I expanded to those that contact me through the KIHA website. On the Healing Weekend field we split our space so we have a lovely healing area, which also doubles as a space to chat about Handfastings with couples. The rest is set up with leaflets and information about our work and further on the field we have the ceremony area with flowered arch.
Although we were booked for this year’s (2017)Healing Weekend as usual, we had a very close relative’s Wedding to attend on that same weekend in Scotland. After much searching and requests to our fellow FOIC trained celebrants, two very kind ladies offer to help us out. The lovely Tanya and Wendy were both new to Celebrant work so it was an ideal opportunity for them to gain experience with Handfastings at a festival. We of course gave them as much help as we possibly could and loaned much of our equipment too. We really appreciated that they were continuing to offer Handfastings to the visitors of The Healing Weekend. They also understood and were happy that we would take it up again in 2018.
So we are! We have already been booked for next year’s Healing Weekend
and are so looking forward to being back on the field doing what we love. We are already receiving enquiries for the Handfastings, which is lovely! So if you wish to book in for your Handfasting in 2018 please do get in touch quickly.
Hopefully we will see you on the field xxx
