BirminghamBreathes has long been proud to fundraise for Tiba Africa Foundation at our workshops and we have managed to send hundreds of pounds over the years for their projects in the slums of Nairobi. Now we are asking once again that you dig in your pockets for Abundance School. Tiba has launched a Christmas campaign on Global Giving to raise the money for school bags with stationery and materials for each child, to encourage families to send their children back to school after the Christmas break when it may be hard for them to give priority to this (actually quite small) expense. AND ESPECIALLY: a high number of donors and donations will make Tiba eligible to apply for a £10,000 grant to rebuild their school – a dream of all the children, parents and teachers. Please donate any amount you feel able via this link:

Birmingham Breathes is proud to be endorsing a new book about conscious breathing written by our colleague Rebecca Dennis. The first UK-written book about Transformational Breath, It’s suitable for people new to breathwork as well as dedicated ‘breathers’. There are inspirational case studies and lots of short breathing exercises to try at home. If you have issues around depression, anxiety, stress, childhood trauma etc that you are struggling with and would like to see if breathing can make the difference, then this is the book for you. It’s available from Amazon, Waterstones and W.H. Smiths. You may well want to follow up with a Transformational Breath session with Val or I! And it would make a good Christmas present for people new to breathwork.
Birmingham Breathes is delighted to have hosted the Annual General Meeting and professional development weekend of the Transformational Breath Foundation UK this weekend. We have a brand new committee to take our plans forward and learned lots of new skills and ideas to further professionalise our work. Our very own Birmingham Breathes trainer Val Jenner was elected as Vice Chairperson responsible for communications. Congratulations Val!! Meanwhile, Andria Falk, a founder member of TBF-UK, stepped down from her TBF-UK responsibilities to concentrate on developing her work in new ways.
Thanks to everyone who came on our Level Three self-development weekend at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre last week (April 2016).
We between us all co-created a beautiful experience of Transformational Breath, shared understanding, knowledge and insights to enable us to keep our energy high and live our lives to the full. A special highlight was our Breath session in hot water at the lovely pool at Calthorpe Academy.
Thanks to our training team, especially to Anne-Marie Birch, our guest Senior Trainer from Scotland and our visiting Trainee/Facilitators from London, Jersey, Bournemouth and Bristol. Congratulations especially are due to Pippa Wheble and Sue Geary who were presented with their International and National Transformational Breath certificates at the end of the weekend. Awesome!

Birmingham Breathes is delighted to be offering this International Transformational Breath Foundation Level Two programme on Saturday 27 February 2016 10.30-6.30 pm and Sunday 28th February 9.30 am- 5.30 pm at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre, South Birmingham
This weekend offers a rich, in-depth experience of Transformational Breath, a cutting edge technique that uses connected breathing, sound and ‘body mapping’ to balance the different aspects of ourselves, clear stress from our bodies and minds and enhance our overall wellbeing. The weekend includes four Transformational Breath sessions and the opportunity to learn its unique body mapping techniques. We will also be introducing techniques that work in parallel to Transformational Breath to quieten the chatter of our minds and let go of patterns of thinking that no longer serve us. This includes Byron Katie’s ‘The Work’, meditation and how to create abundance in our lives. AND there will be time for dancing, laughing and playing !!
We have a very high ratio of staff to participants on this weekend and you can be sure of lots of personal support. It’s suitable for newcomers and experienced ‘breathers’ alike. Please note that Level One and Level Two programmes may be taken in the reverse order and either of these weekends are essential prerequisites to our Level Three weekend in April and to the TBF Facilitator training programmes. The richness of this programme also makes it suitable for people who want to revisit the opportunities it offers and a half-price option to redo it is available. Please contact Andria and Val on email@example.com or phone 07961302719 for more information or to discuss any specific needs or circumstances.
Price of the weekend: £295, including a take-home manual, snacks and lunches. Payment plans are available.

Yes, this high-energy weekend is less than three weeks away: The Buddhist Centre is booked, the programme being planned and accommodation found. We are delighted that beautiful guest Trainer Anne-Marie Birch from Edinburgh is joining our Birmingham Breathes Team Trainers Andria Falk and Val Jenner. You can expect lots of individual attention, for our very skilled team of intern facilitators, Paul, Pippa, Pryanka and Sue will be on hand to support you as well. A wonderful opportunity for a weekend of total immersion in the Breath: four full breath sessions, an explanation of how Transformational Breath works, plus additional techniques that complement and deepen your experience (5 Tibetan Rites, Power of Now and Dyadic Integration exercises and more …) . And a take-home manual to dip into for ongoing inspiraton. A fantastic way to experience Transformational Breath in one weekend, with the promise of two additional weekends in early 2016. If you are new to Transformational Breath you will be able to do self-sessions at home after this weekend; if you are already experienced in Transformational Breath you will find that this weekend takes you even deeper in your breath journey. Awesome!
