September 2015 summer update & autumn availability

Hi everyone, Greetings from the Magic Island! We have had an amazing summer here at the retreat.

Great people coming through as always and a new development for this year: I’ve breathed two families i.e. mum, dad, and the kids too. One family had two sons of 7 and 9 and the other had two sons of 16 and 18. People often ask if working with Breath is ok for kids and my answer is a definite YES. My youngest client ever was only 6 weeks old when I breathed her, with the oldest client thus far being 86 years of age. Both sessions were beautiful and the Breath delivered as it always does…

July 2015 Newsletter

Hi everyone and greetings from the Magic Island.

Having just got back from the Aegean cruise and studies in Italy I’m now getting ready to head to the UK for a workshop at INDABA YOGA on July 18th. These events are great fun and massively powerful into the bargain. If you feel like something deeper and more intensive then head over to the Lanzarote retreat where rapid permanent transformation is the order of the day. I’m in situ all thru summer and availability is listed below! Also in this issue check out the terrific new programme ‘The Bridge’, designed and facilitated by my friend and colleague Donna Lancaster.

With love, Alan

Hi everyone and greetings from the Magic Island.

Spring has sprung and the island is filled with flowers again. It’s such a great time of year watching all the new growth change the desert to grassy flower-filled fields and a timely reminder of the power of life force energy to create tangible transformation. The retreat is as gorgeous as ever as are the people who come to stay with us, so if you’re ready for some quality you-time the current availability is below. It’s possible to arrange your retreat within any of the date windows shown – email to book.

News Update: Breathing on the Aegean, 7 – 14 June 2015

Hi everyone, very excited to be co-hosting our June 7-14 2015 Aegean cruise with my colleague and friend Louka Leppard.

We ‘road tested’ the yacht earlier this year and it is absolutely gorgeous, as are the Turkish crew, as are the areas we will be exploring. The beauty and stillness we experienced were totally inspiring. There will be both a physical and digital detox element to the cruise, so for most of the time we will be out of reach of phone or wifi signals. Places are strictly limited to 14, so book early to avoid disappointment…

How are your construction skills?

It strikes me that breathing is kinda like building a house. We have the foundations in the abdomen, the walls are in the mid-section and the upper chest equates to the roof. Most of us are going about our business most of the time with only the ‘roof’ in place…

Hi everyone

We’ve been doing spring cleaning (of ourselves ;0) early here at the retreat and as usual the Breath has worked its Magic. It’s the most effective way to create rapid, permanent change for the good.
