What to expect at the Breathwork and Meditation day

Breathwork is one of these new words that is banded about, but what does it mean?

Breathing is something we do automatically of course, but for many of us, we have learnt how to breathe in a way that increases our stress levels and can leave us feeling anxious and short of breath.

When moving about in our daily lives, our breathing responds to the demands on our body. So, when under emotional stress we ‘hold the breath’ without realising, and when we feel that things are safe for us, we sigh in relief.

We use our breath for everything we do – in short Breath is life – so doesn’t it make sense to learn to harness our breath, to notice its patterns and learn how to breathe in different ways that support us, particularly when we need it.

Awareness

A is for Awareness

It is the ability to pay careful and caring attention to all that arises in us and to all that we are aware of that is around us. It enables us to be fully present in our lives, as they are lived moment by moment. It increases our ability to have more moments in which we perceive the exquisite vividness and richness of each moment.

Connection

C is for Connection

It is what we long for from the moment we are born until we die. To be connected with others, with nature, the earth below, the sky above. When in nature, we can feel more at peace. When with others we feel alive, inspired, held, and accepted for what we are. By being with others, we meet ourselves. When connecting with ourselves with love and tenderness we experience a sense of coming home and with it a glimpse of an unbound freedom to be who we are. And the deepest love is revealed to us in moments of connection with presence, silence, and space.

Expansion

E is for Expansion

Expanding beyond the limitations of our small selves, our views, and our ideas – allows us to hold dearly what is meaningful and at the same time to let go of what isn’t serving us anymore. It makes space for new possibilities, stepping out of the known into the unknown, with courage and determination. It is a deeper knowing that knows that we can access our powerful resources for insight, transformation, and healing through being aware of the vastness that is in us and around us.
