Hello there Folks!
I hope that the Summer finds you well and energetic! I know that I am enjoying the warmth - finally! And I am loving the loud birds, the wind, the gardens.. and the fact that it is soon to be holidays! Yay!
Please find below all our latest info about the holiday period at the Birth Yurt and Canberra Breathwork. AND.. we have included a little bit of a heads up for the juiciest New Year 2013 workshops and more!
Wishing you all well this Christmas. Blessings to you and your family and take good care, warmly Rachel
The Birth Yurt is open as usual, except for the following leave periods: 21 - 28 December and 7 - 13 Jan.
Come and experience Breathwork for wellness, clarity and integration. Why Breathwork? People come to Breathwork for a diverse range of reasons including ill health, depression, anxiety, spiritual longing, relaxation and mindfulness, creativity, clarity and the relief of physical/emotional pain. I suggest that initial appointments be made for 3 -5 sessions on a weekly or fortnightly basis for maximum benefit. You may also like to try breathwork first and see if it is the right fit for you. Every single clients leaves knowing deep within that the breath alone is a powerful resource and ally in their own life journey.
Appointments Monday and Tuesday; Thursday and Friday (some evening appointments available).
GROUP BREATHWORK - Celebrating the Summer Solstice
Our Summer Solstice Breathwork session will be held on 21 December 2012! This is a time of ripeness, fire and love. It is about success, happiness and enjoying the present moment. It is a powerful time of JOY! All are welcome to come and celebrate the Solstice with movement, colour and breath.
Setting powerful intentions for the turning of the seasons, and the turning of the year.

The Global Inspiration Conference (Breathwork) in Belgium was a hoot! It was so wonderful to meet again with other Breathwork practitioners, share our experiences of breath, and enjoy the company of like minded souls. It was a nourishing time for all. Throughout the year I will share some of the insights and practices with the Canberra Breathwork group, so if you are wanting to know more then come along!

P.S Yes... I have heard you and am very grateful for your many requests for the 'return' of Soulful Mothering! It's quite a popular request - that and more Retreats! I am considering this at the moment and will consider a fortnightly Soulful Mothers group during the weekday. Will keep you in touch!
I hope that you are travelling well as we enter into Winter! Instead of the usual slowing down into the depths of innerness, I find myself this winter moving more into the excitement of the crispness of this season - the excitement of the changing colours, the aliveness of the crisp air and the warmth of home! I hope you are enjoying the change too!
This month I head off once again the Global Inspiration Conference - this time in Belgium! I look forward to joining with our international colleagues in breath, joining in the workshops on offer and bringing back with me more inspiration, learning and resources that I can share with you all here!

Keep warm and enjoy this winter xxx Rachel
Hello and welcome to May! I trust that you are breathing well and enjoying the Autumn crispness!
We had an awesome April, with such a soulful Red Tent and the start of our Doula Training for 2012 - feels like the year has just got started! I don't know about you, but April was a bit of a funny month with so many holidays and days off, that it got me off balance a bit. So I find myself welcoming the routine of May!!!
This month we celebrate the Breath with the incorporation of Family Constellation Therapy! We are holding a weekend of Family Constellation goodness! This soulful work developed by Bert Hellinger, changed the way that I participated in my own family system, and it has been hugely healing for me over the years to continue with this practice. I don't know of any other work that so clearly, deeply and with the greatest integrity, gets to the very root of the family system and its very own healing movement. I encourage you to join us for this weekend on 19/20 May and experience this work for yourself! You can attend either one or two days, and couples/friends are most welcome! RSVP to register your place!
In May I am also beginning a 5 week Breath Awareness Course! This is for the purpose of understanding how to use your breath toward improved wellness, vitality, stress management and mindfulness. We will learn a number of breathing techniques, understand the physiology of breath, and gradually move into different levels of breath awareness that will support you and your wellbeing. Beginners welcome! Everyone can breathe and learn to breathe well! Starts 17 May 7pm.
This month the Women's Retreat was postponed, however I am likely to hold a second retreat in the later half of the year! Look out for any upcoming dates on my website, or email me if you would like me to contact you directly with dates!
Mother's Day!!! We like to celebrate Mothers.. and all that Mothers offer to our little ones and our community! To celebrate we are offering Mothers a 30% discount on Breathwork or Reiki Sessions. Book a session for you, your mum, or have one together! This is offer is valid for May - enjoy!!!
Doula Support - I am now currently taking Doula clients for the second half of 2012 (after a little hiatus!). If you are interested in Doula services or would like to engage a student doula, then please let me know ;)
That's about it from me, go well, breathe deep and step out there doing one courageous thing this month - your energy will love you for it! Hugs x Rachel
P.s - Red Tenters... Women.. if you are interested in joining us again for the Red Tent, then you will be pleased to know that Hollie and I have set a date for Friday June 15! Save the Date!
Well! Here we are already in April, our time of rebirthing! Although our season is the Harvest we can still celebrate here in sunny Australia the celebration of Eostre, celebrations of the Goddesses of fertility and transition, and our very human potential for birth and rebirth...all before we move deeply into the winter! And why not! I am a huge fan of all celebrations and the rebirthing is particularly wonder filled.
OH MY I have SOOOO much news to share!!! See below if you want the dot point version!
So, this month at the Birth Yurt we are celebrating all things gorgeously womanly and feminine and sacred. We are celebrating the breath of birth, and the breath of renewal and rebirth. You are welcome to join me this month through the beginning of the Doula Training, for personal breathwork celebrating you, or in the Breathwork group who are working on "developmental stages...the journey of life" - very soul filling!
And of course ... we are celebrating the RED TENT this month on the full moon - an evening of circle work, celebration, deep sharing and Breathwork. Such a gorgeous month indeed!!!!!
Also, in response to your requests (yes I am listening!) I am very happy to once again run some group breathwork sessions. If you would like to get a group of three or more friends together I am happy to hold a group session just for you! 2.5 hour minimum. Grab some friends and breathe together ;)
I have also responded to the request for a second Women's Breath Retreat! I am therefore able to offer Sunday 6 May out at Ingelara, for a full day womens' retreat. See RETREAT for details.
Now some more NEWS! Individual Sessions: As well as personal/couples Breathwork therapy, I am now offering 1-1 transpersonal counselling sessions at student rates. As part of my on-going learning I am undertaking a Post Grad in Psychotherapy (process oriented) and I am able to offer 1 hour sessions to you and your family! Please contact me for details. This is separate to the Breathwork therapy, however it can be combined (of course!) if you would like to take the benefit of both worlds ;)
How exciting this time is! I have put dot points below for ease of reference. If you have any questions of me, or would like to make any suggestions then please let me know! I am looking forward to connecting with you over this month. Its a funny time filled with so many holidays so take care and enjoy really well ;)
Big love and breathe well x Rachel

Now, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the gorgeous Doula students of 2011/12 for their commitment, energy, fun and warmth during their training days.
