​Stress Buster​ ~

London's Shamanic Emotional Release Ritual

Facilitated by Natalie Ford & Ruth Biddlecombe







Emotional release is key to health and well-being. It helps us let go of past situations, stresses and tensions, energetic ties, relationship heartbreaks, work troubles, childhood trauma and other emotional baggage.

It returns us to presence - the here and now - and generally makes us feel lighter and freer.

We can connect with all of who we are and reclaim parts of ourselves we may have lost touch with.

By releasing stagnant energy, we create space for our true selves to have more space and for us to call in our heart’s desires!

Why is it Shamanic?

This ritual is shamanic because we work with energy and because we work with the concept of cycles of death and rebirth.

We use the three key tools of: movement, breath & sound to allow energy to release, move and leave our bodies. And we work with the concepts that everything is part of a cycle: it has a beginning, middle and end.

When something completes it's cycle and 'dies', it creates space for something new to come into our world - something new to be 'born' or 'birthed'.

What Will We Do?


* Opening circle

* Intention settings

* Demonstration of the emotional release tools

* Body Activation

* Emotional release ritual

* Integration

* Closing circle - with optional group hug!

This group process invites your full range of emotions (from joy and celebration to guilt, grief, anger, shame and fear) into full expression.

You will be guided to use structured somatic tools that support you to release energy and E-motions (energy-in-motion) from your body, so you feel lighter, freer and more in control of your being.

You will be supported through your individual journey in this group emotional release ritual.

Here is a short video showing a few of the techniques we teach in Stress Buster


"The emotional release workshop was both fun and profound at the same time, leaving me feeling light and in a better place at the end of the evening. Highly recommended!" - Steve

"This workshop feels like an essential part of self-care. A regular way to clear emotion and stay 'emotionally current'. There is a power to doing these tools in a group and within a safe, held space" - Nicola

"I arrived feeling as though I was carrying the burdens of the world in my chest. I found the tools highly effective and left feeling a lot of relief. Essential self care for everyone"

"A really useful, well-held and immensely safe space to learn about healthy moving and expressing emotions through the body"

"Doing these tools made such difference to my state of being"

"This is the only place I’ve experienced such a level of emotional honesty and physical release in such a highly skilled and lead group. Everyone should do this - and often. The world would be more peaceful and balanced if this were taught in schools" - Ebony, Doula

Intensity Level

This is a medium-high intensity workshop that purposely brings up and releases emotions stored within the body. It can be fairly physical and can also be adapted for any physical limitations you may have. We will have  an experienced and supportive team on hand to support you through your process.

Please note: part of our ‘Commitment of Care' agreement is that all participants take full responsibility for their safety and wellbeing - before, during and after the event. E.g. do NOT fast or intoxicate yourself 24 hours before event and plan to have a quiet and restful evening afterwards.

Inclusivity Commitment

This event aims to be inclusive of all beings. We commit to adapting our language, processes and space as much as possible to warmly welcome and honour your uniqueness. For example, techniques can be adapted to suit your body’s capacity, we routinely invite naming of gender pronouns at opening circle and offer a shared decision making process regarding whether this event will benefit or be a risk to your mental health needs.



The tools we teach can be modified to accommodate most physical injuries and limitations. Please make us aware on the day of any injuries so we can guide you. This class is not recommend if you have recently had surgery, as the emotional release tools are quite physically intense. Please wait until you are fully recovered before attending - we intend to hold the class monthly.

Emotional / Mental:

1) If you’ve been experiencing involuntary thoughts of suicide or self-harm, please message us and let us know what’s happening for you, including who is supporting you and - if you attend this event - what your plans are for taking care of yourself afterwards.

2) If, in the last 5 years, you have experienced:

* Feeling disconnected from reality

* Fearful of persecution and attack from unknown others

* Preoccupation with having to protect yourself from persecution and attack from a specific person or group

* Hearing, seeing or feeling things that other people can’t sense

* Flashbacks of previous events

* Active planning to commit suicide

* Self-harming to the point of needing medical care

Please contact us so we can have chat about what this event will entail and how that might affect you. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, so please share with us openly and honestly your situation. If we jointly decide with you that a group environment is not suitable, Ruth and Natalie both offer one-to-one emotional release coaching, which may be more supportive for you.
