The Finder of Lost Things with Hannah Velten

The Finder of Lost Things with Hannah Velten

Hannah Velten met her grief in 2003 when her brother, Christian disappeared on a solo expedition to Mali, Africa while retracing the footsteps of the Scottish explorer, Mungo Park. Christian vanished without a trace: no hard evidence, very few clues, no closure. His story and his future were lost with him. For more than a decade, Hannah lived in the stagnant waters of grief, unable to speak about Christian. His disappearance consciously and subconsciously consumed every aspect of her life until she hit a point where she had no choice but to surrender. To find the courage to look inwards for what was missing.

Hannah connected with Christian in spirit, and together they embarked on a new expedition to find all that was lost to them and heal their grief. She was able to retrace his last steps through trance-mediumship, finding the missing pieces of his story and along the way finding the missing pieces of herself. In their remarkable journey together, Hannah and Christian discovered an eight-step healing process that completely transformed Hannah’s life.

Amidst today’s trying times, the world is faced with the relentless challenge of overcoming the chaos and pain brought on by Covid-19 and social division. As a result, we are met with a second pandemic, one of individual and collective loss. This grief is real. The pain is valid. But this is the perfect time for wholeness to be found. Hannah has been called to share her story now, in a time when people have little choice but to sit in stillness with their loss.

Join Hannah (and Christian and guests!) as she tells her incredibly uplifting story and learn how you too can find your lost things. You can heal your grief and bring back joy and purpose to your life by looking inward, receiving support, and trusting deeply in yourself.

About the Hosts

Hannah Velten

Grief Healer | Sister | Writer

I never in a million years thought I would be describing myself as a grief healer. I was a writer. But then my brother, Christian, disappeared in Africa and life was never the same again.

Today, after 18 years of trusting, personal healing and transformation, I work with people who have been overwhelmed by grief to find balance, peace and joy - whatever the physical circumstances this is possible. Drawing on my own experiences and guided by Spirit, I find the lost things, bring truth/clarity and support people as they reignite their creative powers. It's a complete joy and privilege to be doing this work.

And now I want to share our grief healing ritual (which truly heals and transforms) with a wider audience... hence the radio show and podcast you're listening to! So, come exploring with Christian and myself, and our guests. All you have to do is listen and be open to what touches you. What gives you goosebumps? What makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Listen to every episode in turn, or just pick an episode that calls to you. You will hear what you need. x

Christian Velten

Explorer | Brother | Spirit

Okay, well, I’m Han’s charismatic young(er) brother. Tall and handsome. Dark and brooding. Always happy to laugh and muck about, get into trouble and take risks with my life. I was a tearaway, if I’m honest, and I loved nothing more than running away from what I was expected to be and do. Never wanted to be ‘normal’ and have the wealthy, British lifestyle which was supposedly ahead of me - sod that. I wanted adventures, heat and passion in my life, not a shrivelled up, spent and spat out existence which I saw before me, if I’d done what I was supposed to do… and I had a very good, and expensive, education afforded me.

It still astounds me that Han, here, searched for me as hard as she did. I’d always loved her, looked up to her and seen her blossom in life. She didn’t do the things which were expected of her, either. We were, and are, so very similar. She’s flighty. Loves the novel, the new. Is adventurous in her thinking and being.

This podcast is going to be about us - and you. How we were both lost and found. It was her incredible spirit which has battled against all the odds to get to me, and to get me home… and I’ll be eternally grateful to her for that. And when I finally get to meet her again, she can give me a huge hug, then a massive slap for being such a pain-in-the-arse little brother.

Love you, Han.
