About This Event
Breathing Space Retreats happen all year round and take place on the beautiful volcanic island of Lanzarote 60 km off the coast of Morocco in the Atlantic Ocean.
The inspiration for the retreat was to create a sanctuary-like space where you can go deep into your journey knowing that all practical aspects of your stay have been managed on your behalf leaving you free to give yourself some quality time and attention using the vehicle of the Breath to facilitate your journey. From the moment you step off your flight to the moment when you are dropped off at the airport on completion of your stay we
The retreat has an air of calm and a lot of space so you can be as sociable or not as you like. Days are filled with individual breath sessions with Alan as well as bodywork session and later in the day a group breathe. Guests are encouraged to initiate a self-practice while on retreat with the objective being to be able to ´fly solo´ competently and safely by the end of the stay.
We have consciously chosen to limit numbers at the retreat ( maximum 4 at any one time ) to allow for maximum individual attention and space in which to enjoy your journey with us.
´´The privilege of a lifetime is getting to Be who you are ´´ Joseph Campbell The ethos of the retreat is to use the breath as a vehicle to bring us home into our bodies and specifically into our hearts. The Breath allows us to deconstruct the ´smoke and mirrors´ of the mind to allow us to experience the true radiance of our eternal being.çA very safe space where you can feel vulnerable and held at the same time. I feel more grounded than ever before Serena Gordon Co-founder The Hoffman Process UK
