Facilitated by Natalie Ford & Ruth Biddlecombe, 14th January 2020

"This workshop is the medicine. You’ll clear your system like you didn’t know." - Andrew

"I loved the process and opening up to see what comes through. I now have tools to be able to use to help me. The facilitators are great and supportive."

"Wow, what a great way to shift energy. I feel clean and connected to the Divine."

"I came in not knowing what to expect. I left with much more understanding. I will definitely come back to know more."

"I liked that there were several different tools to choose from. I felt held and supported with 3 facilitators."

"I loved the feeling that I was being safely held with care and inclusive, sensitive, respectful ethos. Useful demonstration. I felt safe to release emotion."

"There is a cumulative benefit to doing these practices. Each session is different and each time I am more present and embodied. I do this in partnership with other developmental trauma healing."

"The tools are super powerful. I loved having the space to really go deep." - Andrew

"Emotional Release is such a powerful practice for me & I struggle to go deep alone - I am so grateful to you for providing this space for us." - Amy White, Women’s Femininity & Sexuality Coach.

Shamanic Breathwork - Small Group

Facilitated by Natalie Ford, 26th February 2020

"I hoped to clear blockages and, after the session, I felt uplifted!"

"I’d been feeling quite stuck, blocked, frustrated and like I’m not living my authentic life. After the session, I felt a bit emotional from the process, but so much lighter and clearer. I felt I’d discovered new things about myself and my trauma and it feels very cathartic." - Seanna

"Natalie holds a very beautiful warm space where you are supported to feel everything you need to in order to realise heavy energy. I enjoyed the whole session. And it was the first time I put my energy on paper; I loved to let the mind go and just drew what I saw in my meditations and what it came to me at that time. It was a beautiful experience!"

"I hoped the breathwork might help me with emotional build up and, afterwards, I felt much freer, safe and supported" - Gintare

"Natalie is so incredibly good at holding space and responding to the needs of the individual. I got so much out of my session and feel a lot better than I have in a while. I’ve been to way too many breathwork sessions before where there isn’t enough chance to share, decompress and reflect on the huge journey you’ve been on and I’ve always felt something was missing. I think Natalie hit the nail on the head with the balance of breathwork time and reflection time. It’s my favourite breathwork session I’ve done in London." - Seanna

"Natalie has a calm and caring nature and made me feel at ease with anything that came up. She creates a safe space, where any emotion and feeling is acceptable. I felt fully supported in my journey and will definitely return as soon as I can. Highly recommended!" - Gintare

Stress Buster ~ Shamanic Emotional Release Ritual

Facilitated by Natalie Ford & Ruth Biddlecombe, 28th February 2020

"I appreciated the welcoming energy, felt at ease straight away as was a bit nervous about what it was going to involve." - Jess, Beauty Consultant

"It is great for any level, I am a beginner and I still took something from the experience! Intrigued to delve more into my inner self! Amazing leaders too! So smiley and calm. Didn’t feel judged!" - Jess, Beauty Consultant

"I loved the attitude - supportive and love filled but - these are practical tools to use in order to feel more human - the no nonsense!"

"This is a practice that I have to make priority - it’ll make you feel more animal, more alive."

"I came tonight as I feel like I have stuck energy that I find it hard to let come to the surface. I can feel it but it doesn’t seem to shift. I felt like I needed help to get things shifting and releasing."

"The ritual works on an emotional level so much deeper than talking therapy."

"I loved being given permission to let go of any and all emotions. Ruth, Natalie and Esrar all really respected my space, offering help but in an unassuming, unintrusive way."

(Which given that I have been doing personal growth work for over twenty years is saying something)" - Ruth

"A very powerful experience. It's great that you get to see the other people in the group and interact with them! Natalie is an amazing facilitator and is very caring and compassionate which shines through during the session" - Andrea

"The breathwork and the way it is held gave me the ability to deeply heal, release and still stay present and connected.

At the end feeling tenderised, whole and complete." - Ruth

I’d recommend allowing Natalie to guide you through your first Shamanic experience." - Ruth

"Beautifully held, very well supported by Natalie; being online instead of in the same physical space had no negatives" -Lou

"I hoped the breathwork might help me with releasing blocks and old beliefs, retrieving parts of myself I’ve lost. I felt really happy with the session and my experience" - Lou

"I wanted to reconnect to love after a long morning of standing up against racism in my community. In the breathwork, I was able to release the intensity of the morning - I found the medicine in the situation. I was able to transmute into a fire of passion that will fuel me to keep moving with my love to keep offering the world my support for a better world!" - Auria

"It’s a great tool for transformative living. Highly recommended" - Louise

"After the session, I felt cosmic, orgasmic & connected to deeper held emotions!" - Louise

"Breathwork is one of the very few tools I know that help me learn to get more into my body and allow access to blocked emotions. It's a gentle method but, bit by bit, breathwork can help accept ourselves and life as it is and has been - and thus reintegrate parts we had rejected" - Anon

Online Stress Buster ~ Shamanic Emotional Release Ritual

Facilitated by Natalie Ford & Ruth Biddlecombe, April - June 2020

"I recommenced this workshop to anybody who wants to feel more free and liberated within themselves" - Darrius

"I find it easy to slip into denying emotions I feel, especially in the culture I was brought up in, and this is a highly supportive event that helps me release what is trapped. Would recommend it to anyone" - Sophie

"This workshop’s hosts created a space that felt safe and secure to delve into the tools they carefully explained and encouraged us to explore. I felt really supported to express myself without judgement and safe knowing they offered additional support for attendees afterwards should more challenging aspects arise. Thank you for your hard work and ingenuity that went into adapting this for online, for holding this space for us and making it accessible with sliding payment scale." - Helen

"Ahhhhhh just the release I needed, anger, grief, wildness, arousal. Perfect!" - Anon

"I thought the hosts were great - really open and gentle and made me feel safe to explore uncharted territory. Loved the demos, thought was really smooth and clear considering the obvious current limitations [Social distancing]. I also agreed that there are some real benefits of being at home to do this... so nice to ground in your space afterwards and have comforting food and bath. I can also really see the benefits of being in a communal space - especially where you can fully verbally release, as I know I felt a little aware of neighbours which perhaps slightly limited the experience - so would like to try that too one day! I was very grateful for the sliding payment scale which made this accessible to me at this time. Thank you." - Helen

"I loved the leadership, community and places I was able to reach with this workshop" - Sophie

"I loved your guidance, clear explanations of the tools and techniques, the way you both held the space, and other participants" - Anon
