Healing Circle with traditional drumming and singing with Don Beacham and Anneli Twan
Please join us on Saturday, 25th or Sunday, 26th November, 2017 in East Finchley, North London for an exciting afternoon in the tradition of the Cree First Nation Natives. It will be five years in November since we started to organise these circles in London.
The circle is a recreation of a Sacred Sweat Lodge Ceremony. It is a unique opportunity for you to experience the ceremony without actually being in a real purpose built Lodge.
The meaning of a ceremony is a purification of the spirit, mind, emotions and the physical body; letting go of unnecessary fears and blocks and allowing the new to come. You will definitely find yourselves rejuvenated and re-energised after the circle, feeling whole and peaceful.
You do not need to have Reiki to come to this circle. It is open to everyone!
Don Beachamis a Native American Indian belonging to the Norway House Cree Nation in Northern Manitoba. He has followed Native Spirituality for over 35 years. His Cree name is Wapun Muskwa, which means White Bear. He is a traditional Pipe Carrier, and has earned the right to run Sweat Lodge ceremonies.
Don is also trained counsellor, who enjoys sharing his teachings and years of experience with people who are on their healing journeys. He has worked for many years in a combination of traditional ceremonies, counselling healing circles and drumming, providing a safe and nurturing experience for individuals of various backgrounds and capabilities. Aside from B.C. and Alberta in Canada, Don has conducted sacred traditional ceremonies in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, England, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
Anneli Twan, Don's wife, is of Swedish and Canadian / Native Indian decent. She is the daughter of Wanja Twan, one of the 22 Reiki masters initiated by Hawayo Takata. Anneli learned her First Reiki Degree from Hawayo Takata at the age of 10 and was initiated as a master by her mother in 1984.
For the past 30 years Anneli has travelled with Wanja teaching Reiki and supporting the communities. She carries her motherʼs wisdom and shares Takataʼs teachings.
