Not January, as usual – our next Marrakech Breathwork Retreat is in MARCH 2018 – a change is as good as a rest. #Spring Break

8376403113_1efc0f063a_b

This Years Theme is THE GARDENS OF MARRAKECH

To take advantage of Spring Weather we will be visiting and working exercises within The DAR SI SAID ( above ) which houses THE MUSEUM OF MOROCCAN ARTS with a lush Riad-style garden filled with an array of citrus trees.

This is ‘Les Borj De La Kasbah’ the 4 STAR Hotel, Retreat, Pool and Spa set within the ancient Kasbah Medina we stay in. Read all about previous Retreats here. https://urbanlifeclass.me/category/marrakech-retreat/

The first 2 days we work in the Hotel, pampering ourselves with body washing in the steaming Spa Hammam and Breathwork in the Group Room, plus time and space to SUN by the pool, focus on written and verbal work plus book reading in a relaxed non-regimental schedule.

The Hotel has kindly offered us JANUARY PRICES, the same as last year, as well as 7 nights for the price of 5 or 10 nights for the price of 8. To BOOK you need to book your flight FIRST and to get a return for less than 100 quid – best to do it ASAP as prices rise on budget airlines. We can advise on this. Morocco is not in the Euro so although the crashing Brexit Pound is causing travel price upset, the country is cheaper than Europe to visit for Brits.

On the 3rd Day we visit the Ourika Valley outside the Red City at the base of the Atlas Mountains to lunch, wander and practice Evolutionary Breathwork beside rushing water, away from crowds, in spots we know and savour.

The 5 day BREATHWORK RETREAT is within a 7, 8 or 10 Night period of your choice. The Course itself starts on Wednesday 7th March till Sunday 11th. We complete on the morning of Monday 12th giving you a whole day sightseeing, shopping or just pool lazing. Or stay a few days longer. 10 days for the price of 8.

Flights leave Gatwick on Monday 5th ( if you want an extra day ) & Tuesday 6th but only ONE FLIGHT A WEEK from Manchester which happens to be Tuesday 6th, returning on same say a week later. 

les-borjs-de-la-kasbah

Single Rooms B&B from £330 – £495 for 7 nights ( with 7 nights for 5 nights reduction ) depending on standard and room size. This is paid WHEN YOU LEAVE, not before March 2018, with Debit or Credit Cards. Cash can be arranged to pay if needed. We pay all deposits to secure bookings for you, to make it easier.

The 5 day Course led by DAVID PARKER & Luisa Bradshaw is different from previous years ( without our Meleeshka – she is leading her own UK Programme at this time ) but her verve will certainly be with us. The Course price of £350 ( including Hammam and Day trip to Ourika Valley ) is the same as the past 2 retreats, payable before March 2018, in one hit or instalments before or after.

Meals outside of Breakfast will be at your own cost and choice, in or outside the hotel. Better for those who want to try different eating experiences and places to eat.  More details on everything COMING SOON but a BOOKED Flight CONFIRMS your place. ASK US HOW.

Just contact David, Suzanne Moloney-Wright or Robert Beck for further info.

New urban LIFECLASS TEAM Member : Luisa Bradshaw – Breathwork Practitioner & Team Co-Leader.

 

_DSF6211-Edit-Edit-EditDavid Parker welcomes Luisa Bradshaw – 

After instigating URBAN LIFECLASS 4 years ago, as Not-For-Profit, Luisa will initially support me as she is a Breathworker, trained by Diana Roberts, taking the weight off my shoulders, as well as assisting on group work and seminars, coming up with ideas, & new directions using her well-honed skills. #BREATHE 

39EB2693-70CE-42BD-BD1D-10FA5219A241

Hi, I’m Luisa, now 42 and live with my partner Annette and our two lively teenage children!!  I have been an actor for 30 years but acting has never been enough for me, I have always wanted more! 

After discovering breathwork and becoming completely fascinated and hooked on the process I trained as a Professional Breathworker in the early ‘noughties’ with wonderful Diana Roberts, a pioneer in the late seventies of the perinatal ‘conscious connected breathwork’ Rebirthing technique in the UK. 

At the time I was soul searching and trying to sort my own issues out. I would like to say I have done that now, but I know it never really ends does it? However I am no longer searching, just being and doing, living in process as healthily as I can. Progress not perfection.

Whilst training with Diana I did a weekend Relationship Workshop with David Parker, in which we breathed to Barbara Streisand!!!  . . . not the usual meditation tracks, suffice to say I never forgot him!!! 

I really connected to breathwork with music and always wanted to pursue this path in my own practice. So I am really looking forward to working alongside David, and learning from his wealth of knowledge and finding out more how I want my own personal individual breathwork style to be.

Experientially, I have come through the other side of past trauma and now mostly live my life in a state of joy. Joy I purposely seek every single day of my life.

Sometimes it is there shining down at me when I wake up….other days I use every tool I know to find it! I am also interested in using essential oils and different styles of music and sound vibration to compliment the breath work.

The core of Urban Lifeclass’s mission – to support those living and working in a creative sphere – fits like a glove, so expect to see me assisting, learning, breathing, co-leading and supporting the team with experience, connection and JOY.

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

6990370-cute-love-hearts-13513

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.

Two of our Breathwork Group Members raise a QUARTER of a MILLION pounds between them! Inspiration and ACTION is the core of our group philosophy.

Yes, you read that RIGHT. Over £250,000 between them. ( 307,384.99 USD ).

Simon McDermott ( above ) and Mo Haque ( below ) have hit global headlines around their respective ventures, one was planned to save his life – the other went ballistic! Mo came to group in the middle of a health crisis, as the NHS would not fund a new cancer drug costing £200,000, so with the help of his friends set up a JUST GIVING page.

Mo writes :  “The most recent Evolutionary ‘Rebirthing’ Breathwork group session I attended included a discussion with the theme ‘ASKING FOR HELP’. Particularly pertinent for me in the context that I had the week before launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £200,000 for a cancer treatment unavailable on the NHS. A campaign whereby I am required to ask for an abundance of help. The discussion was most beneficial, as I began questioning reasons for me not asking for help over the years. Ego and pride came to mind.

14095701_10157339924515274_5302703087792934355_nMy situation right now is critical. Diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer 18 months ago, I have exhausted all standard NHS treatment. 18 cycles of chemotherapy and one major operation. I even tried a phase 1 trial drug, the 24th person in the UK to be given these tablets. My cancer however continues to grow. Due to the genetic nature of my cancer Lynch Syndrome/mis match repair/ RAS mutation, THERE IS HOPE”.

I have experienced 8 rebirthing sessions to date this year, and each time the feeling I get is one of pureness. After a breathe it feels like my insides have been cleansed, this emotional detox is needed right now, to manage my mental, spiritual and physical condition.”

To date Mo has raised over £130,000 through ACTION required promoting his cause, travelling to mosques, Bangladeshi UK functions, TV studios and The Houses Of Parliament. His treatment has started and here are THE AMAZING RESULTS  : 14433142_571528853027766_867746530658013829_n

Mo’s story also went viral on global social media. Urban LIFECLASS backs #TeamMo    http://teammo.co.uk

Simon, a regular group member, ( and we only have a pool of 25 people for 15 places each month ) shared that he wanted to raise £1,000 for the UK Alzheimer’s Society in thanks for the way they had helped him deal with his Dad Ted McDermott. IT WENT VIRAL & the rest is History, Simon has raised over £130,000 – making Simon & Mo DOUBLE WINNERS!

Si says : “I joined David’s Breathwork group in December last year. I was going through a difficult time due to a number of personal issues. Breathwork was completely new to me. I knew David did Breathwork Groups for years but if I am honest I was completely skeptical about it – however, my views on it have turned full circle.
Without wanting to sound a cheesefest, I find breathwork has been useful in helping me reconnect with myself in new ways, helping me reformulate my sense of self and clear out negative thoughts that we sometimes put upon ourselves.

My confidence has increased ten-fold and I have needed it to deal with media and public response to THE SONG A MINUTE MAN Campaign and Dad’s Record Deal. Above all else, it can actually be quite fun. Post-breathwork group discussions are insightful and often quite a laugh. The best thing I’ve done.”

NEW VENUE – One Day London Breathwork Seminar HOME ALONE @Angel N1 Sunday October 16th 2016. 11am-7pm

Home-Alone

Are you still an Adult latch-key kid? . . . feeling the pain of fending for yourself, being abandoned or as an adult abandoning yourself from success or serenity ? . . . . Being LEFT ALONE can bring up the ‘hebbie-jeebies’ for many, while others bathe in the freedom to do what the heck they like. Childhood games can create a blueprint for who you are in adult relationships, how you respond to anxiety, choices and being rescued from fear, and as many know, rescuing others is safer than rescuing yourself. Successful relationships depend on interdependence, quality time alone and appropriate boundaries.

6144808577_10578837cc_bThis One Day Seminar – in a new venue for us – 3 mins walk from Angel Tube – explores Loneliness, Aloneness, Isolation and being sane with Self. Left to our own devices what comes up? Do we naturally trust a process or do we codependently need to be in control, needing to know what’s going on? 

851236db2afeeedde3c3c55775a869ef

Or do you constantly worry about someone else? Codependent relationships are a type of dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement. If you can’t help someones depression, for example, it’s easy to feel you are inadequate. If your partner needs ‘space’ does that plug you into inner criticism? Do you feel guilty if you leave a partner, or friends alone? 

travel-aloneDuring the day we will explore LOVING YOURSELF MORE and LOVING BEING ALONE – in or out of a relationship. At 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 own path and walk it.

Conscious Connected Breathwork cleanses, detoxes and releases long held trauma. YOU deserve to be renewed, refreshed and rebirthed. Check out testimonials and blogs on this site.

Urban LIFECLASS goes to Tallinn. Where’s that then?

13343055_10154954230769966_3149411474144354853_n

Words : David Parker  9th June 2016 

Not sure where it is? . . .you’re not alone. My first visit was in 2004, invited to bring my work to a country with just one and a quarter million people, drowning in a history of soviet control, alcoholism and the highest HIV rates per head of population anywhere on the globe. When it was part of Soviet Russia, authorities dumped their IV drug users there, and AIDS devastated communities and families during the 80’s and 90’s. Almost every family is touched by the stain of alcoholism, authoritarianism and genetic codependency.

Estonia_flag-5-130x120This will be my 9th Seminar in Estonia since that time, but this weekends 3 Day Event 10,11, 12th June 2016 will be an Intensive called : COME OUT OF THE COMA!  . . .

Co-dependency and Creative Relationships.

Based on the new work we are doing in London with Urban LIFECLASS, ‘Creativity and Creative People’, it’s also the first time we are using this new intimate venue in Tallinn.

Open just 6 months, with a wood burning stove in the group room, we will be able to do BREATHWORK in front of a FIRE, which as purists know, is the perfect arena for spiritual purification.

pesa_saal_2

Spending meditation time with the Fire, is one way of cleansing thoughts, activities and items. During the 3 days here, as on our Annual Marrakech Maroc Retreat, we hold 3 bags with these words on by the altar : RESENTMENTS – SHAMES – SPIRIT. As the work progresses, the sharing erupts, so does thoughts, feelings and experiences we wish to complete or hand over, by writing on paper scraps then putting into relevant bags. On the last hour we perform a FIRE CEREMONY, to burn away, to replenish, to renew and REBIRTH.

Estonia_flag-5-130x120Feedback from a previous Seminar  “Thank you so much for your admirable work David & I did enjoy your course a lot. I happened to come to this COME OUT OF THE COMA co-dependency weekend accidentally (I thought that it would be just breathwork) and learned at the course that it is co-dependency which is actually my basic problem. On the second breathing session I experienced “my voice “, great forgiveness to my mother and after that there was ULTIMATE HEAVEN, a point of dissolving into the Oneness, JOY and ECSTASY. It was so powerful that I did not want to come back to earth. ” / Katrin – Estonia
