Mechelen Breathing Circle

Marcel Gerrits Starting in October we have a another Breathing Circle in Belgium. This one is based in Mechelen and will be facilitated by Marcel Gerrits.

About Marcel:

In 2002, I realised that I was not happy at all, I over-used my mind, but could hardly feel any emotions and lost connection with my body. So I started with Body-work and other healing techniques until I learned how powerful your own breath can be and how it can change your life. Transformational Breath made the difference for me, I can connect now my body-mind-emotions-soul.

I am sharing Transformational Breath since 2005. It is my mission to share the amazing results with anyone who is interested in the fantastic healing effects of this method. Please contact me for individual sessions, workshops and weekend/week trainings. These trainings can be held anywhere on the planet!

Date & time: last Tuesday of the month, start 19:30 end 22:00

The 50th Breathing Circle is created!

A new breathing circle facilitated by Jacqui Storm in Bath, UK takes us to an amazing 50 circles in 17 different countries worldwide. The Breathing Circle initiative started in 2009 as a simple way to connect people who are inspired by Conscious Breathing through a collective breathing session once a month. The Breathing Circle connects people from all traditions, modalities and backgrounds. We include participants who join us every month from home where they breathe alone and groups who practice group breathing or partnered exchange sessions. The 24 hour period in which we breathe is started by Breathing Circles in New Zealand and Australia and the day continues with breathers connecting through all time zones around the World. We dedicate our practice to personal and planetary healing and many groups send the donations from the Breathing Circle on to charities that helps people to access personal support through challenging times. Thank you to all the established groups - especially to the facilitators who give their time and energy to this initiative each month and provide it with the momentum to keep getting stronger. Blessings to all. Natalia brown (founder)

Bath Breathing Circle

Jacqui Storm Profile: My Name name is Jacqui Storm and I have been on a journey for health most of my life. I am always on a mission to improve both the mind and body. I have come to believe after many years of practice that stress is the underlying factor to ill health of any sort. The breath is the key to change this forever, not only does the breath relieve such ailments as chronic back pain but it also re-ignites the patients interest and motivation into self help like no other form of therapy I have come across. My Breath Work training is ongoing with Avalon Institute of Rebirthing (AIR) & Sondra Ray’s Liberation Breathing. Jacqui Storm, Life's Breath

Note: Bath Breathing Circle meets on Thursdays - please contact the group leader to check dates in advance.

Important information: “Breathing Circle promotes the use of Conscious Breathwork as an effective route to self-healing. We support a range of breathwork modalities and are not limited to one specific practice. We encourage group leaders to be experienced in facilitation of group breathwork practices, but we do not guarantee their expertise or professionalism. Breathing Circle always encourages discernment and self-responsibility when selecting a therapist or group breathwork leader.”
