Kadoorie Farm – Breathing with Trees

29 Aug

Breathing with Trees – A Breathwork Event with Claire Elouard and Andrew McAulay

Learn about our relationship with trees and experience the power of breath in this one day workshop at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden.

In this special event, Energy of Nature teacher, Claire Elouard, will combine with Breath of Bliss facilitator, Andrew McAulay to guide participants through an exploration of multiple dimensions of our relationship with the plant world. The day will begin with a talk and guided walk, and progress through experiential exercises toward culmination in a powerful breathwork ceremony…

Breath of Bliss™ is a transformational practice that infuses you with aliveness using breath, movement and sound. Unlike other breathing practices, this exercise focuses on liberating oneself and achieving wholeness.

The deep, circular, connected breathing used in Breath of Bliss™ is very different from every day or yogic breathing. Benefits include:
* Physical sensation, enhanced sense of aliveness, clearing of blocked energy/emotions giving you more access to desirable emotions
* Profound insights, greater brain connectivity, creativity and focus
* Freedom from stress and anxiety
* Access to the unconscious mind to shed limited beliefs and patterns
* Greater feelings of compassion and connection to yourself, the Earth, and other people
* Stimulation of pituitary gland, the release of natural chemicals to access visions, altered states of consciousness and spiritual awakening.
