What makes this Women’s day different?

The practices of Integrative Breathwork and TRE are different from other healing modalities, because they tap directly into our body’s innate ability to restore balance. Because Breath and Shaking are innate capabilities that we humans have learnt to repress, once restored it’s astonishing how easy it is to let go and allow the body/mind to do what it needs to do.

TRE connects us to our animal ability to shake and ground ourselves, restoring our primal and life affirming connection with our body and the earth.

Our relationship with our breath directly mirrors our relationship with life, heal that and you are ready to welcome life from your truest place, rather than resisting. Restoring and working regularly with these two abilities enables us to restore our connection with all of life.

You will leave the day with the skills, support and information to carry on these practices. The Spa aspect of the morning is to allow you to begin to let go, and soften your body, in preparation. Whether you have experienced Breathwork or TRE before or not, you will experience them differently here as part of a complete day designed for you to get the most out of these incredible practices.

Personal Note from Deborah

“TRE and Breathwork have changed me and my life in many ways and I've moved from a state of persistent depression and anxiety to where I am now.

After just two weeks of TRE practice, my husband noticed that I was more grounded and present, than in the previous 8+ years that he’d known me. TRE practice became a place for me to go to help restore the basic functions that I was struggling with, such as sleep. It allowed me a safe mat space to be with myself, and anything that was arising. It helped me let go of control and get out of my head and into my body.

Breathwork has been the final piece in the puzzle of how to keep the life in me moving and prevent myself getting stuck in old repeating anxious patterns. It has also got underneath deeply held patterns from early childhood, as far back as gestation and birth. Immediately on starting breathwork, it opened up a creative flow and an ability to be more comfortable with life (both the life inside me and externally). It’s helped me learn that it’s safe to breathe, safe to be here now, safe to be in my body and be alive. This has reaped so much more love and creativity in my life and continues to do so. It’s also given me a powerful, yet simple way to release stress in daily life.

As someone who’d always struggled with sitting in meditation these practices have also given me ways to calm myself and be mindfully present. I’d done over two decades of yoga practice and inner work, that whilst incredibly helpful in many ways, never really got to the deeper places that would change my daily life experience; TRE and Breathwork have helped me do that, and best of all, I can do them for myself as well, so don’t need to be dependent on ongoing therapy.”

Just the right amount of information and support in the sessions, and, crucially for me, fantastic free support materials to take away. This means I can continue and deepen my practice at home still feeling guided and held like I did on the workshop.

I’ve done some great workshops before, but have been left in free fall afterwards as to how to continue the good work, so this is a fantastic aspect of how Deborah does things.

The TRE itself is the most healing medium I have come across. I have spent many years using meditation, mindfulness, therapy , group work and bodywork, to deal with stress, anxiety and trauma. It’s all been good, it’s been a great journey, but nothing has got underneath old unhelpful behaviours like TRE has.

Breathwork sessions have been a really life changing experience for me… The breathwork sessions have enabled me to grow in confidence and become less scared of participating in life. I can manage my difficult feelings more easily too, as well as my energy levels

What else is included?

  • You will receive a TRE presentation before the actual day to watch at home, so that you have some understanding of the process before the day

  • You will receive a TRE guidance booklet at the session, and a guided audio TRE session afterwards to support home practice

  • Breathing homework handouts are also part of the day; a way of integrating breath into your daily life

  • You will leave with the information and knowledge to begin home practice

  • You will have our support and advice available in the days and weeks after the workshop for those who have questions

I wanted to say how surprised I am at how quickly my stress levels have reduced. After my first session, the ‘tremoring' brought me the peace of mind I had been craving, but was unable to attain through yoga and meditation alone. As a result, I have been sleeping better, my brain fog has lifted and I feel more grounded.
