Breathe is delighted to welcome you to the UK Festival of Breathwork.
We invite you to join us and breathe in the elements, to nourish your body, mind and soul...
Chose to walk in ancient woodland, lie on the grass or swim in the pool. You can play, stretch, dance and shake, move and explore, learn from and be guided by expert practitioners in the healing arts. Experience the power of breathing together in a group and bring more peace, creativity and freedom into your life. Join us for this unique experience at Gaunts House, near Wimborne, deep in the Dorset countryside.
It’s not only an Event, it’s an Experience!!
Breathe A Festival of Life will take place on the weekend of 29th August, through to the 1st September 2019 at the magnificent location of Gaunt’s House in the Dorset countryside, UK.
So what is Breathe?
Our vision is to create a Breathwork Festival that brings people together in a beautiful and inspiring space, to Breathe…to be alive and to feel it, to be in deep acceptance of it, to honor and celebrate it… to breathe in - expand, open up and receive, to breathe out - surrender, let go, sit in stillness and receive the wisdom that will guide us.
It is a gathering to celebrate and experience Breathwork as a powerful tool for the exploration and expression of our true essence and voice. It is an invitation to allow and empower ourselves, to be who we are and live authentically as part of this world.
Held in safe and nurturing indoor and outdoor spaces, in the naturally peaceful and uplifting site of Gaunts House, we will share this adventure with an array of wonderful practitioners who will provide guidance and support along the way. There will be workshops, talks by keynote speakers and individual sessions in different Breathwork techniques as well as in other modalities and activities. Our beautiful journey over the weekend will include introductory and advanced Breathwork workshops & talks, yoga, meditation, gong baths, dance, fire ceremony, visualizations, music and much more. More details on the programme will follow on the website https://www.festivaloflife.co.uk/

I am a holistic women’s practitioner & I have put this
weekend together to offer you access to two awesome
sassy, sacred, profound, & profane women & our own unique
offerings for growth, deep connection, self-care, self-love!
Before we can authentically serve others,
we must first be whole & well ourselves.
As women, we are not routinely being educated to do this.
This weekend will focus on providing you with a toolkit
to fill with the practices of those of us who have explored,
tried & tested insightful yet often simple techniques &
found them to be both healing & wholesome.
We are SO excited to offer you this sacred, safe space to
share, to explore & learn from each other there present.
It will also include time for you to take some space
in the ancient surroundings or chose to book one of
only two 1-1 bodywork or reiki sessions.
Our programme is packed with mind, body & spiritual
practices & a whole heap of fun!
Laughter after all is so very healing.
For when women sit together, it is magic,
it is pure alchemy!
We are delighted to invite you to this nourishing weekend of fun, connection and deep
transformation held at Gaunts House.
Tantra is a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us, through sex, heart
and spirit, that has the power to transform our lives, bringing a new quality of aliveness
and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where
everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of
self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love.
In this residential weekend of tantra, with elements from bio-energetics and shamanism,
we will discover our energy body, and how we can embody spirit and the sacred on this
We have both a physical body and an energy body, and live simultaneously in both
While the physical body experiences physical reality through the five senses, as opposed
to the virtual reality of the mind, the energy body can experience directly energetic reality
around us. This includes such apparent mysteries as love, sex, relationships, power over
and under, spirit and the divine, and the meaning of life.
Without awareness of the energy body we are lost, our sacred dream (or life purpose) is
at best a concept, an idea, and we are victims of the energies around us. We are easily
invaded, controlled, manipulated, and we turn to external authority to tell us what we
should do and how we should live.
With the energy body we can follow the authority of our own hearts and find our sacred
dream and mission, feel how the universe guides us and discover who are teachers and
supporters on our path.
We will develop our awareness of our energy body and its possibilities. We will learn how
to choose freely when to perceive life through our hearts, or through our felt desires as
opposed to our projections, or through the consciousness of our spirit and of the karmic
connection between our actions and their effect on others.
We will become aware of what robs us of our life-force and what nourishes us.
We will learn more and more to enjoy our creativity and become creators of our own life,
manifesting our desires, our hopes and wishes, and our dreams.
We will experience ourselves and others as a unique being with a sacred flame inside.
Our lives can be filled with meaning as we tap into our soul purpose.
No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different
people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or
friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole workshop or whatever portion
We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you.
There will be no nudity at this event. Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move
freely in and an attitude of curiosity.
The workshop facilitators are Jon and Rose Skelton Pearson.
Rose’s background is in massage therapy and also as a teacher of ‘Heart in Motion’
therapeutic dance. She has been on a tantric journey since 2007 and has studied with John
Hawken since 2014 when she undertook a year-long training in Tantra Massage. During
that time, she has facilitated workshops both in the UK and Australasia. Currently she
lives in Brighton, UK and offers workshops and sessions with her husband, Jon.
Jon’s experience is a braid woven of many strands. As a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist,
he trained, lectured, supervised and practised for 20 years from the Manchester Institute
for Psychotherapy in the UK. He has practised and taught yoga and meditation since 1983
and ran the Calderdale Yoga Centre for eight years. Active in Ken Wilber’s Integral
Movement since the 1990s he is an Associate Integral Life Coach. He has been a student of
John Hawken since 2017 and considers his Paths of Transformation to be the most

Rose, his wife.
