    Breathe is delighted to welcome you to this weekend event, the first Breathwork festival in the UK. 

    It is a gift to you! An opportunity to relax and revive: to inhale and receive, to exhale and let go........... 

    Held in the beautiful location of Gaunts House in the Dorset countryside, Breathe is generously and lovingly supported by some of the world's leading practitioners, speakers, movers and shakers in the Breathwork world and beyond.  The key note speakers this year are Dan Brule and Anthony Abbagnano. They, as well as Sophia Magdalena and Rebecca Dennis, will deliver group Breathwork and individual sessions. There will also be a fire ceremony to open the gathering with Vicky Sinclair and Christian Platts, morning yoga with Jeannine Goh, a dance session with Louisa Love to help integrate the work done in the Breathwork sessions, and a gong bath with Roger Gong.

    Breathwork is a general term describing numerous available modalities that use the breath as a main tool for exploring alternate states of consciousness, meditation, as well as in therapy and for improving physical health. People around the world, seeing the power of it, have used breath as a healing tool since ancient times. Even Latin words for breath and spirit are the same.

    The process we are exploring at Breathe, uses very simple technique of conscious connected breathing to activate the natural healing abilities that we all hold within us. It is a totally natural and safe way to explore the mind, body and soul. At Breathe we welcome all kinds of modalities of breathwork into the same space, for a shared common purpose of healing, inspiring and connecting people. WE INVITE YOU TO COME AND EXPLORE WITH US. 

     
    This annual event is going to be truly amazing: for people of all ages and experience in breath work.......

    Mark Kitchell brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters rejected modern chemical farming and set out to invent organic alternatives. The movement grew from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food. By now organic has mainstreamed, become both an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that realized a vision of sustainable agriculture.

    Treat yourself to a day of nourishment and re-connection. Slow down in the beautiful house and gardens of Gaunt's.

    This day aims to introduce you to Chen style Tai Chi as a means of developing self awareness, increasing energy levels and grounding ourselves within the busyness of life. The movement sessions will be interspersed with guided mindfulness meditations to come back to stillness and back to the breath. All ages and abilities are welcome. Whether you have a regular movement or meditation practice in place or you are keen to try something new.

    Gaunt's house will provide a delicious, healthy vegetarian/vegan lunch and Linda and Stuart will provide healthy snacks and herbal teas throughout the day

    The Tai Chi sessions will be guided by Stuart Ward who is a 12th generation lineage holder and disciple to Grandmaster Kongjie Gou. The Mindfulness will be guided by Linda Thomas who studied a 2 year post-graduate programme in teaching mindfulness at the university of Bangor.

    Both are passionate about what they do and would love to share this with a group of like-minded people.

    Looking forward to seeing some familiar and new faces. Please private message Linda for any queries or further information about the day lindylou_28@hotmail.com

    Now in its sixth year, this unique and ever popular weekend retreat returns to Gaunts House.  This year the retreat will be focusing exclusively on Space Clearing and the rich energetic history and spiritual influences both in and around the property.

    Through a series of workshops and lots of practical experience we will explore how you can discern if a space needs clearing, how the symptoms of this may manifest and the tools you can use to clear it safely and effectively. We will look at portals, different types of Spirit activity including elementals, energy lines, geopathic stress, imprints, House and Land Guardians, blocked or stuck energy, the impact of humans and their energy and much more besides.

    During the weekend, there will be the exciting opportunity to do a night time walk through the main house to tune into the prevalent spiritual activity there, and, if appropriate, to clear it. Throughout the day (weather permitting), we will investigate the extensive grounds and learn how to work with dowsing rods and pendulums.

    The weekend retreats at Gaunts are always filled with interesting energetic experiences and you will be taught lots of tips and techniques that you can continue to use either personally or professionally long after the retreat is over.

    For further information and to book, please see School of Intuition & Healing website.

    Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling.

    This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact it’s having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking new documentary film that pulls back the curtain on an unseen part of our world and asks us each to consider, who pays the price for our clothing?
