42 Acres Breathing Space Retreat, Somerset, 8 – 11 June 2017

Posted in Newsletters

Hi everyone,

I’m very excited to be hosting a retreat at the breathtaking 42 Acres space in Somerset this June. It’s the second year running that I’ve been able to bring a Breathing Space Retreat to the UK, making it even easier for you to access the amazing power of your breath. In 42 Acres I couldn’t ask for a better venue. It’s beautiful and peaceful but easily accessible from London via a direct train followed by a 15min cab ride. Read on for more info…

Love, Alan

“February: Breathing Space Retreat, Lanzarote, Canary Islands..

“February sees these Spanish islands at their greenest, with reliable winter sunshine and early wildflowers – so it’s a perfect time to escape the grim British winter and book a retreat with the “breath guru” Alan Dolan. He’ll teach you the art of “conscious breathing”, which helps you access the full potential of your lungs to reduce the effects of anxiety and stress; it’s one of the most powerful therapies I’ve experienced…

“Courses are based at a private villa in Oasis de Nazaret, a peaceful area 10 minutes from the beach at Famara. Each day includes one individual and one group breathing session (with a maximum of four others), poolside relaxation, star-gazing from the hot tub, holistic treatments and vegetarian meals. Island tours can also be arranged.”

“…This is warrior work – You can literally shift how you feel one breath at a time. Conscious breathing is a powerful and safe way to infuse the body with oxygen and energy, recharging our own (often depleted) systems to work to their healing capacity….”

Hi everyone and greetings from the Breathing Space retreat on the Magic Island of Lanzarote.

We have just said goodbye to a lovely group and are getting ready to welcome our final guests for 2016. I continue to be in awe of what the Breath is capable of and of how powerful we can be as human beings. The things I see on a daily basis I would have filed under ‘Miracle’ not so long ago. Now I understand that these ‘Miracles’ are in fact very very natural. I have yet to find anything that can not be helped by working with the Breath.

We have one place left for next week’s retreat (it’s a double room so there are separate sleeping spaces for two persons) so if you are feeling the need for some inspiration just drop us a line. In addition, it’s 22 degrees, we have a heated pool and a very bubbly jacuzzi at the ready plus amazing food and our in house bodyworker / magician Martin all make the perfect context for some quality You Time.

If you know somebody who would benefit from a 1-1 breath session in London with yours truly we now have gift vouchers which can be used at any time throughout 2017. They’re downloadable in PDF format and cost the same as purchasing a 1-1 session directly.

Love!! Alan

Pieces of me: Finding Self Retreat at 42 Acres

“…When Dolan comes to my side, I am tight and nervous. He softly, intuitively feels along my clavicles, ribcage, abdomen – and I am surprised when he touches a spot that makes me gasp. I feel embarrassed and try to hold it in, but it’s no use; and, instead, he guides me in breathing through it. It is uncomfortable but, as I learn during my stay, discomfort and resistance are telling us something, and we need to get better at listening.

I spend 30 minutes struggling with the process – feeling light-headed, as though the breath pattern is too shallow, which makes me feel anxious. And then, unexpectedly, everything loosens up: my neck relaxes, my jaw stops feeling taut and tense, and I just breathe. And lose time. Twenty minutes later, I become conscious of feeling light and happy – and rested. Remarkable…”

Hi everyone and greetings from the Magic Island.

Hope you all had a wonderful summer. I’ve been in the UK at 42 Acres in Somerset and I’m now getting ready to head back over for a workshop at Indaba Yoga on September 11th, plus some 1-1s to boot. The workshops are great fun and massively powerful, but if you feel like something deeper and more intensive, head over to the Lanzarote retreat which runs year-round. Details of both below, along with an introduction to my colleague, friend and namesake Alan Purves.

With love, Alan
