“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

Keith from Bristol was new to Urban Life Class – but took the risk, heart in hand and travelled to Marrakech with us. On leaving he posted this to participants on FB.
“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
