Valentine’s Day

A few Reminders : They say you can’t give away what you haven’t got.

Expecting LOVE from others when you can’t give it to yourself, is like driving a car without lessons – straight to A&E with codependent concussion.

WAKE UP! Don’t short change yourself. Learn to LOVE YOURSELF FIRST.

Retail Therapy and Credit Card Concussion on a weekend is one way to feel good about yourself – however the temporary hit soon passes into oblivion past the changing room. Aint THAT the truth. Working on yourself and your Relationships is not as difficult as you think and far more value than a sudden fashion binge for a Saturday Night Out. In the end, peace of mind & inner security is a classic long-term fit – so STOP SHOPPING on Saturday Afternoon and JOIN US for FREE.

images-1Urban LIFECLASS focuses on Creative Relationship Rescue, ( not rescuing others, we must add ), but rescuing YOURSELF from codependency, lack of direction, family patterns, control issues and finding a voice that feels authentically strong. So we are travelling NORTH from London to explain about the power of BREATHWORK as a therapeutic tool, for those touching anxiety, depression and entrapment in some way, and how it can help.

14690849_10155399932644966_4583286687935699303_nOur MANCHESTER WEEKEND Seminar is in early April but to give you a chance to taste what we do and ask questions we offer you a FREE 2 hour Introduction to chat, learn to breathe deeper and discover more. No obligation to attend the Weekend Seminar, no manipulations, no selling going on here ( we did enough of that when we didn’t know better ). Evidence is that it sells itself.

Another Northern lass from Manchester, Lisa Stansfield sang  ” Been around the world and I, I, I . . . to such acclaim, it’s a classic. Much like the WEEKEND SEMINAR we bring to Manchester in April called COME OUT OF THE COMA.

12003990_10154214955544966_4184064287411353291_nDavid Parker, it’s creator, birthed it in Australia 2003, honed it in MILAN in 2004, and since then it’s been back to Australia, Venezuela, Estonia, Canada, & Morocco, to name a few countries, and that big city called LONDON down South.

Clean and nobly serene since 1982, David has valued real life experience and never teaches from a manual. He has taught Breathwork & Lifestyle Coaching for over 25 years with those affected by alcoholic or drug affected families, child abuse, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B & C, recreational or prescribed drugs as well as people WHO DO TOO MUCH, low esteemers, constant DO-ERS, procrastinators, loners and people who don’t fit in.

He welcomes all to take responsibility to fix themselves first before attempting to fix others. It’s not New Age anymore – more Internet Age – and no pink bubbles & fluffy stuff either.

11902593_751292425017355_4365397549991654353_n

COME OUT OF THE COMA examines Interpersonal Relationships, Families of Origin, Interdependence & Recovery tools using written and verbal exercises, informal experienced information and Experiential Evolutionary Breathwork for safe emotional release.

And don’t forget it’s not just about people : You can be codependent on a PHONE – Digital Addiction has become an acceptable epidemic. How do you feel without it . . or leaving it at home? 

images-1 Learn to say NO more often when you always say Yes.  

Release people pleasing and approval addiction.  Understanding family control, duty, rescue, fixing and power games.

images-1Learn to create bounderies and find your own sense of self.  Reframe friendships and relationships that no longer work.  Discover and recover from addictive, compulsive escape routes. Prepare yourself for CHANGE. 

No experience of Breathwork is required, nor do you need to be in a relationship or be affected by addiction. The purpose of this Seminar is to release guilt and the encouragement to fix yourself first, before attempting to fix or rescue others.

Marrakech Breathwork Retreat January 2017 – Early Feedback.

“I came on this retreat last year and THAT changed my life, without doubt. Doing breathwork today with the most amazing group of people has surpassed every expectation that I could have had. 

It has been very deep work, but overwhelming in its content and in the range of emotions which it generates. I have seen major changes happen in others, honesty, trust, sharing and the most breathtaking energies holding the space throughout. Thanks to Robert, Sara, Suzanne and Jake for assisting so well.

Finally special thanks to David Parker and Meleeshka for doing the most amazing work and holding the space so beautifully. Tonight I am in a state of blissful gratitude, feeling the love and looking forward to the final few days.”  Mike Delaney RNMH, RMA, Cert Couns, (BACP, EAGALA) / London – Birmingham

images-1“Just about managing to keep a lid on tears (not so lucky with that in the taxi on the way to here, Marrakech Airport ) after the most incredible week with a truly amazing group of people. It’s been non stop laughter, a few tears, and a new perspective on my life that I never expected.

I came away with 15 strangers and am going home with 15 friends. I’m so grateful to all of you, I just can’t quite find the words to do it justice.” Keith Conway / Bristol

One Day London Breathwork Seminar LOVE UNLIMITED @Angel N1 venue London. Sunday February 12th 2017 11am-7pm. #LOVEIN

They say you can’t give away what you haven’t got. Expecting LOVE from others when you can’t give it to yourself, is like driving a car without lessons – straight to A&E with codependent concussion. WAKE UP! Don’t short change yourself.

r-887797-1169495706-jpegAs many of our participants know LOVING YOURSELF is an ongoing process, it only take a stare, a rejection or a criticism to send us back to square one. So it makes sense to keep a check on those coda characteristics that send us into a spin but thankfully that old adage FEELINGS AREN’T FACTS rings true and we realign.

During the day we will explore LOVING YOURSELF MORE  – in or out of a relationship, ROMANTIC TYRANNY and SERVING YOURSELF into spirituality, gifts to give yourself plus releasing people pleasing, projection and perfectionism. We will also be BREATHING to the music of Barry White, no tingly bells, waterfalls on this one, so get that karaoke voice in fine fettle. Become your own VALENTINE.

images-1At the end of the day we BREATHE together in a GROUP, experiencing EVOLUTIONARY ‘Conscious Connected’ BREATHWORK – alone with your breath, your fears, your strengths and any spiritual source you choose. Learn to create your path and walk it. Conscious Connected Breathwork  detoxes and releases long held trauma. YOU deserve to be renewed, refreshed and rebirthed. Check out testimonials and blogs on this site.

WELCOME too if you are new to Personal Development, Groupwork or Breathwork. We don’t do special languages, New Age stuff or talking sticks. Other groups do those things so much better than . We are just a bunch of creative people willing to change habits, addictions and depleting toxic relationships from our lives.

If you are new, one of our team can contact you if you wish to answer questions. We don’t sell anything, or sign anyone up, we leave the choice up to you. You don’t need to be Creative, just willing to check out your life and how you can change the impact of all your relationships.

Christine reviews our London One Day Seminar ‘Home Alone’.

11880350_10207426035507425_5702309674236068765_nDavid Parker has been my codependency-release therapist via SKYPE since February this year and without him I wouldn’t be where I am right now – a place called recovery. A place I had no awareness of before I met him.

At the point I contacted him I was lost, confused, emotionally numb and had been so beaten down mentally that to say my life had become unmanageable was a severe understatement. As the months passed by I built up a strong connection with this humble man who helped me to start to see some light through the intensity of the thorn bushes I was totally enmeshed in.

Despite being on my uppers and broke, I took the decision to travel to London from my hometown Manchester to attend his codependency workshop – ‘Home Alone’ – because of this strong bond I had built with him. All my sessions with David had previously been on Skype so I was so excited to meet him in person and I can only say it was a privilege and extreme pleasure to have the honour to be coached by him to this point and to attend this workshop for a full day.

The whole experience was incredible and professional. On the journey to the venue I was filled with excitement and on meeting him and his team it only confirmed to me even more that I won’t find a better equipped therapist on codependency than David. His knowledge is vast and his attitude, HUMBLE.

Plus his Urban LIFECLASS assistants are kind, on the ball, experienced and knowledgeable. I learnt a great deal on this workshop, about myself, about the others who attended and it helped me understand what I had been through and also that I am not the only one experiencing codependency issues that plague adult relationships.

14724450_10155400594679966_774377516736315707_n

The last part of the day was the breath works session, it’s new to me, something I knew very little about and was actually quite unprepared for what I was about to experience. I thought it was some kind of strange breathing meditation and didnt really give it much thought before I got there.

But then, like nothing I have experienced in my entire life I was blown away. This breathworks thing took me to a place I have never been before. I went to a place where codependents like me don’t often go – a place where my emotions reside. If you ask me where that place is – I can’t tell you. But it showed itself to me during the breathing session and somehow from nowhere I felt all the emotions I had denied myself for years with such great intensity.

Rob, ( Bubbles ) one of David’s assistants is a phenomenal being who guided me through this process and sat by my side through most of it, looking after me and holding my hand. It was a rollercoaster of an experience but I felt cleansed afterwards and feel different now, weeks later than I did before I attended.

images-1How do I feel different? I don’t know! I can’t say its a specific change, its just a shift, maybe that I can feel, somehow, feel my feelings, my emotions, which I had been too afraid to feel before. Whatever it has done, somethings moved and I now have some sense of wholeness – rather, a coming home to me. Its a long journey of recovery and a long journey home, way up to Manchester, but both journeys were worth it.

I urge you, if you are looking for a therapist who specialises in codependency you will not find anyone more equipped on this subject than David Parker and Breathwork will take you to another dimension you haven’t been before.

Much love Christine xxx
