We Are Celebrating!
24th Mar 18
Happy 3rd Anniversary Holistic Wellbeing!
On March 21st 2015, we opened the doors to Holistic Wellbeing in Shepley, Huddersfield. We chose the Spring Equinox to symbolise new beginnings and new potential and what an amazing three years it has been!
I (Ann) founded Holistic Wellbeing ten years ago when it was solely holistic therapies and teaching Reiki. That slowly evolved to include other courses that Jonathan and I developed together with over 20 years of experience under our belts and it became a constant challenge to find suitable rooms to rent other than using our own home. Seven years later we found ourselves taking on the daunting task of leasing premises.
It’s been and still is the steepest learning curve we’ve ever experienced and yet the most emotionally and spiritually rewarding. We have met the most incredible people, that’s you! We have made the most wonderful friends that we feel are more like extended family and we hope to see that family continue to grow. We never take it for granted that the Centre has made it to its third year because of your continued support and that of the wonderful therapists and teachers who use it as a base to share their amazing skills and knowledge.
I won’t pretend that it’s easy and the reality is not quite what I first imagined. I actually thought that I’d be gliding serenely around with an air of composed tranquillity, the epitome of calmness and peace, not beavering away for 90 hours on some weeks, but behind the scenes, every last drop of blood, sweat and tears we shed pales into insignificance when someone leaves the building with a great, big smile on their face and knowing that what we do has had a positive impact on somone's life. Sharing journeys, showing love, being loved, supporting and being supported, lots of laughter, a few tears, being picked up and dusted off when we fall down, sharing knowledge, wisdom, experience, being there for each other, through the ups and downs, no matter what, that’s what life it’s all about. Thank you for making our vision a reality, long may we grow together.
Ann & Jonathan xx
