Holistic Wellbeing was founded by Ann Halstead and is jointly run with her husband Jonathan. Ann says: "Together, our spiritual awakening began over 20 years ago and during this time our lives have taken some very interesting twists and turns on a pathway filled with synchronicities. We have been very privileged to have encountered many wonderful people and made many great friends who in turn, have enriched our respective spiritual pathways and introduced us to many amazing life-changing concepts and teachings. Through Holistic Wellbeing, our work continues to open up new horizons, sharing our experience with those, who like us all those years ago, are beginning to awaken to their own life's purpose.
We believe that everyone has chosen to incarnate on this beautiful planet for a reason and whilst here in this incarnation, we offer guidance and continued support to those who wish to be accompanied, even for the shortest distance, to a higher consciousness. For whatever reason you come to us be it therapies or teachings, we will always offer a you warm welcome along with our genuine gratitude and respect, acknowledging each person as an individual connected by spirit to the greater whole."
Hello, my name is Ann Halstead. I am a Reiki Master and Teacher, Meditation Teacher, Spiritual Counsellor, Intuitive and Jonathan's side-kick or perhaps that should be psychic? ;-) My passion in life is about helping others to discover the endless possibilities that appear when taking those first steps on a personal, spiritual journey.
It doesn't matter who you are, what age you are, what capabilities you have or think you don't have, anyone who makes the conscious decision to explore their own spirituality has taken the first step on a wonderful and life-enriching journey.
My own personal spiritual journey began through rather tragic circumstances after my wonderful mum passed away suddenly. I was in my early 20's and newly married. My mum's unexpected passing led me to question my whole belief system and in my quest for answers, I left no stone unturned until I found the solace I needed. It was soon after that I found myself in intensive care with a severe illness and it was this that brought me to the conscious realisation that my life's path was in helping others. Although this was a very trying time in my life, I learned a great spiritual lesson which was; whenever we are at our lowest point, we find our greatest strength.
It is with great honour and privilege that due to my experiences, I am able to share my journey with countless others and have made so many wonderful new friendships on the way. Watching someone take those first steps on the road to self-discovery and blossoming with confidence, is for me, one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching. Personally, there have been so many positive changes to my life from a health aspect and in developing contentment as well as an understanding about how much more there is to life other than the physical world around us. To quote Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
"We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey."
Sometimes all it takes is a little push in the right direction to make a positive start to the rest of your future. What are you waiting for?
Ann teaches meditation, original Usui Reiki, psychic and spiritual development, runs various workshops and also offers a variety of treatments and therapies.
Hi, I'm Jonathan. I am a Clairvoyant and Clairaudient Medium, Spiritual Counsellor, Reiki Practitioner and published writer, writing occasionally for Soul & Spirit magazine. I started my working life as a farmer and then moved into sales management, finally setting up my own computer repair company. Ann and I first met in 1985. We married in 1993 and have been privileged to share and continue our spiritual journey together.
In my early teens I studied many religions in an effort to find answers in the hope that I could make sense of life. The more I studied, the more I felt that something was missing. Conventional religions did not seem to offer a solution to the great question of "why are we here?"
It was the sad passing of my mother in law that was the catalyst to how our lives would begin to take us on a spiritual path. Soon after her mother's death, Ann was rushed into hospital following complications after an operation. This was to be the turning point in our lives because after Ann had recovered sufficiently, she dragged me, reluctantly, to a local Spiritualist Church. I had always had a fascination in the supernatural and at first I was intrigued but sceptical at the same time. Little did I know I was about to find out that life can have an amazing way of turning your world upside down.
It was on our third visit to the Church, (under sufferance I hasten to add), that we arrived to find that the Medium taking the service hadn't turned up! The Church leader suggested that everyone in the audience should stand up and give a spiritual message. Funnily enough, everyone became very quiet and subdued with furtive glances being exchanged around the room. No one seemed willing to stand up!!
It was then that I had an overwhelming urge to get up from my seat and spontaneously tell the Church Leader about a man who enjoyed working with wood. It wasn't until a week later on another visit that the Church Leader came up to me and apologised. I asked why she was apologising and she said "I should have told you last week that you brought my deceased father through and no-one in this church other than me knew he his favourite hobby was working with wood!" I don't know who was the most surprised!
It was at this point in my life that I truly understood that our spirit transcends death and that life is eternal. After developing my new found gift with the Spiritualists National Union under the guidance and mentorship of a lovely spiritual lady and great teacher called Nora Stringer, I was invited to speak on the platforms of other churches and I continue to do so to this day giving demonstrations and spiritual philosophy to the congregation as well as doing private readings and other psychic related work within Holistic Wellbeing.
I believe we all have a psychic ability; however, society has conditioned many of us to believe that this is not the case. Thankfully, in the last decade we have seen an unprecedented rise in interest of psychic phenomena and even science is now beginning to discover the existence of new dimensions through Quantum Physics. It is without doubt that the Earth's and humanity's vibration is increasing as we enter an exciting new era of conscious awareness and discovery!
There has never been a better time to re-awaken your own psychic powers and connect with your true spiritual pathway in life, so why not join us on one of our special events, courses or talks and begin to discover your true potential as an eternal being of light?
