What Happens When You Die?
For Ann Halstead and her husband, Jonathan, the sudden death of Ann’s mother started a deep spiritual awakening as they desperately sought answers to one of life’s biggest mysteries.
“Mum and I had an agreement that whoever went first would give the other a reassuring sign. But after mum died nothing made sense anymore. No number of questions could give me the answers I needed.”
It was not until Ann found herself in a hospital bed opposite to where her mother had died, and convinced she too would succumb to the same fate, that Ann made a pact with herself.
A Spiritual Journey
She promised that if she survived the ordeal, she would do anything she could to help other people.
From visiting spiritualist churches to reading books about the spiritual journeys of others, Ann and Jonathan soon found their calling.
Through decades of research, training and experience the couple set up Holistic Wellbeing Yorkshire Ltd – first in Shepley and now in Queen’s Square Business Park in Honley – to help other people to enrich and find meaning to their life’s journey.
Through thought-provoking events, workshops and courses, their aim is to safely guide and support you through those times in life where a more spiritual approach is needed to better understand life and death.
Ann said: “We all have a personal responsibility to uplift and guide. We have created a sanctuary for the open minded where – regardless of belief – people can talk, share and learn from experience in a safe and friendly environment.”
Therapies, Courses, Workshops & Classes
The couple originally trained through the Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU).
Ann is a funeral celebrant, Reiki Master and Teacher, Meditation Teacher and Spiritual Counsellor. She specialises in Original Usui Reiki, Past Life Regression and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).
Jonathan is a Spiritual Medium, Psychic and Mediumship Development Teacher and qualified Sound Healing Practitioner.
Jonathan hails from a farming heritage and went from working the land into a career in sales, eventually finding a calling to a higher consciousness when, by complete surprise, he began re-connecting people with loved ones who had died.
In his Mediumship he works with three spiritual senses including Clairvoyance (seeing), Clairaudience (hearing) and Clairsentience (feelings).
As a Complimentary Medical Association (CMA) registered training school, Holistic Wellbeing Yorkshire Ltd provides meditation classes, authentic Japanese Reiki training, psychic readings and spiritual counselling, spiritual development workshops, spirit rescues (more commonly known as ‘ghost busting’), talks and events, as well as therapies aimed at nourishing mind, body and soul.
When Science Meets Spirituality
Jonathan hopes that in his lifetime he will see the fields of science and spirituality work together as they did in ancient times.
“If we can achieve this humanity will take a quantum leap in advancement both technologically and spiritually for the future benefit of all,” he said.
Jonathan has a passion for studying our ancient past, sound healing and the art of sacred geometry, and believes that the two fields are beginning to re-connect.
“Through the use of crystals, ancient and modern instruments deeply meditative states can be created using frequencies which work in harmony with the body and can be beneficial for many conditions,” he said.
Jonathan’s ‘orchestra’ incorporates crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, vocal toning and unusual ancient instruments including the Tagelharpa.
Ann added: “The instruments create a vortex of sound which works on a deep cellular level, making your cells dance with joy.”
Holistic Wellbeing also offers alternative perceptions of life and death. The couple invite professional guest speakers for topics ranging from the paranormal, life’s mysteries and unexplained phenomenon, dowsing, stone circles and unidentified flying objects (UFOs). They also have a friend who’s an astrophysicist and he is also happy to join in and share his insights.
Weekly Psychic Evening
Their most regular event is a weekly Psychic Evening which takes place most Tuesdays. Guest Mediums are invited to give a public demonstration of Mediumship.
On the last Tuesday of each month Ann and Jonathan run a ‘Development Circle’ – an open evening where anyone can learn how to use their own psychic skills in a safe environment under the guidance of experienced Mediums. Both these events are pay on the door.
There is also a gift shop which opens on event nights selling crystals, incense and more.
Jonathan said: “Quantum physics and quantum biology are beginning to put scientific explanations into what we do. It all comes down to energy and when you take time to understand the reasons for life and death it truly is fascinating.”
