Lets make it a Happy Christmas in Nairobi, Kenya


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:

“And Breathe …”

beccas-imageBirmingham 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.

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!

.  2-laos-fleur-nationale-laos-dork-champa-frangipanier

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 enquiries@birminghambreathes.co.uk 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.
