A Beautiful Life – Chi Gung and Breathwork Retreat

About us

Breathing Journeys offer unique spiritual journeys for healing and transformation. The focus for this week will be on manifesting our vision for who we want to be and how that looks like in our life.

Breathing with intention initiates an extraordinary journey towards the life we wish for ourselves. Breath by breath, we bring ourselves closer to our full expression in the world. Embracing our natural creative potential, we manifest our highest vision for life while staying present, grounded and full of possibility for whatever may arise to help us achieve wholeness.

Each day we will create strong intentions for our life to take into our breathwork sessions, breathing life into our vision. These sessions will be balanced by daily chi-gung practice to help ground our intentions.

Enjoy a safe and supportive space to heal what isn’t working in your life. Breathwork is a safe and highly effective way of moving beyond problems that may have been present for many years. It works at a level where no language is required and participants are often surprised at the results when all they do is “lie down and breathe”:

• Increased sense of aliveness and wellbeing
• Deep relaxation and release of tension
• Freedom from long standing emotional discomfort and states such as anxiety and depression
• Resolution of the past
• Profound healing experiences
• Freedom from unhelpful patterns of behaviour
• Insight and awareness
• More present and alive to life
• Sense of deep connection to something greater than self
• Being “at home” in the body
• More integrated sense of self
• More relaxed and accepting attitude to life's challenges
• Feeling of completeness
• Improved health and detoxification of the body
• Create what serves you in life
• Greater fulfilment in all areas of life - relationships, money, work
• Greater sense of connection and purpose in life
• Be at ease with dying and the process of life

Located in a beautiful area to walk in, delicious food and open fires added to the feelgood factor, this was a relaxing and at the same time an eye opening retreat, empowering myself on the new journey that just started. Would love to participate in the next retreat as well. S.L

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To fix me and therefore fix the world. Rogers
