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.

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

Can’t Stay-Can’t Leave

o-BROKEN-HEART-facebook0

I’d like to run away from you, but if you never found me I would die, 
I’d like to break the chains you put around me, but I know I never will, 
You stay away and all I do is wonder why the hell I wait for you, 
But when did common sense prevail for lovers when we know it never will, 
Impossible to live with you, but I know, I could never live without you, 
For whatever you do, I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you.

images-1

David Parker peruses . . . 

How many relationships do you know that constantly break-up, then return to the mire of the codependent malady, a few months later? I call these BUNGIE JUMP Relationships. Can’t Stay. Can’t Leave. Bounce back. Try one more time.

Pop songs have a lyrical tradition of loss not love. We call them LOVE ALBUMS, Romantic Operas to intimate connection of the heart, revelling in heartbreak, not heart-warming mindfulness, or the concept that ‘everything is temporary’. We don’t want to hear that, it must last forever, or not at all.

The projection of fear, loss, low esteem, financial depletion or other such devices can keep you in an unhealthy relationship, even in the workplace. Listen to this haunting ‘love song’ of entrapment, capture and coda infusion. Would you call this LOVE?

If you identify with the lyrics, or feel at loss within your relationships, it may be that your emotional intelligences needs re-balancing instead of riding the bungie-jump of fear.

This classic tome comes highly recommended for adjustments.

November Breathes GO with a BANG!

470px-Spectators_watching_fireworks_display_from_Flickr_user_KSDigitalAfter the two OCTOBER Breathing Groups the first NOVEMBER evening BREATHWORK Group on THURSDAY 12th November is now FULL. 

The second gathering of only 5 people is on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 24th and 3 peeps have booked already so BOOK NOW.

People have asked for a weekday evening slot to experience Breathwork for the first time or maintain what they have achieved already, so I have created some intimate COACHING/BREATHWORK groups for max of 5 people with a CODEPENDENCY RECOVERY theme. Each 3 hour group session is £30, no more than an evening out these days, but you will feel better for it, working on yourself, instead of working up worry, tension, projection or getting wasted. All for less than £8 a week!

I use my own home, my own *womb space* as many have called it, and all monies go to the Urban LIFECLASS pot to bursary our assistants to attend January’s MAROC Retreat in Marrakech.

photo 2The first 90 mins is taken up with Codependency Coaching in some form, followed by ONE HOURS BREATHWORK that puts you into a total space of relaxation and altered states of consciousness. The remainder brings you down, back into your body, leaving you rejuvenated ready to MOVE FORWARD. It is suggested to do ONE GROUP A MONTH ( a Tuesday or Thursday ) or both if you prefer. This space gives you a chance to get back on track with feelings, emotions and solutions to life problems that appear from nowhere.

VENUE : Euston/Mornington Crescent – EACH SESSION Needs to be BOOKED in ADVANCE to secure a space and if you can’t make it you still need to pay, if we can’t get someone to fill your space.

FEEDBACK from last year:

“Well I can report back that it was one of the most joyous weeks of my life and perfectly placed for the beginning of the year. In fact I would say that a lot of creative planning for the months to come happened without even trying during those days…Onwards with abundance xx ( CH London England )

10922477_10153555402624966_2741312531345165532_n

“What can I say about my time away except that it was deeply needed and I feel profoundly honoured to have been in the company of so many loving souls. It’s been hard to get back to normality especially as I have to say goodbye to one of my oldest friends next week, who passed over, but I now have both the courage and power to do him justice as I say my farewell whilst being strong enough for my God daughter too, and I thank David and Meleeska for love, guidance and respect that they showed me over the last week, for without these things mixed in with the healing power of laughter, I wouldn’t be able to do it!! All my love to you both, always!! XO ( M. Somerset England )

“The retreat in Marrakech was stunning, beautiful beautiful people, amazing location, huge amounts of love and even more compassion, but throw in huge gales of laughter, it was beyond superlatives. All I can say it was the first break I had taken for ten years, and boy it was worth waiting for, the people were and are amazing, the breath work powerful and simply life changing, and the laughs we had still rings in my ears , roll on 2015, best decision I ever made … Thanks David and Mell big love xx ( JD Somerset England )

Orchestrating Energy – Sunday Seminar May 24th – Euston/Kings Cross with Rebirthing Breathwork. 12noon – 8pm £70/50

8409

In the creative world it’s easy to be dominated by other peoples controlling energy, or outside of this sphere, like in an office, the same over-powering tactics can often operate. The Line Manager, Director of a Production, or a Publishing House can easily crumble your esteem, confidence and creative thrust with a snarl, rejection or put-down when you know you are doing your best. It can feel personal.

Some of us enter these arenas with sub-conscious battle on our hands, reminding us how we survived family or education in order to live, survive or just about make it. Someone close to you will often reverberate the journey you have survived. If you had to shout to get heard growing up, for example, you may still shout to get your point across ( or your boss may just do this to you ). What we learn in functional relationships is that bounderies have a place and that instead of manipulation to control others energy, we need to take responsibility for our own energy spaces and learn to respond safely and clearly instead of silence or an inappropriate rancid rant.

Learning to exercise emotional restraint certainly heals the present, no point in clearing up past mess if you are still dumping like a child. This is why Urban LIFECLASS Seminars always focuses on Codependency Release and ends with an energy-releasing I hour BREATHWORK SESSION. Read the testimonials on this site.

1508090_10155157489970249_1138797668474256377_nOur Guest Trainer this month is MELEESHKA – one of the first pioneers of Rebirthing Breathwork in the early 80’s in the UK, at the same time as Diana Roberts, our Birthing Mother ( one of our Creative Collective Team ) was a guiding light in London with The Loving Relationship Training ( LRT ). Both will be in attendance to support your personal development on this day.

Some of you will recall that MELEESHKA co-led the Spiritual Retreat in Marrakech this year ( and next year January 2016 ) so if you are considering coming next January, this seminar will be a great introduction to over 30 years of experience and her non-conformative style.

With a background in the music industry, social work, creating empowerment trainings and now living in Glastonbury, with heaps of storyteller wisdom, Mel will focus on Internet Age realness not New Age pixie hats, as anyone who attended our Maroc Retreat will testify.

**NEW VENUE : https://urbanlifeclass.me/2015/03/20/our-first-year-and-a-new-place-to-play-in-london-2015-euston/  The Lecture Room : The Place, 16 Flaxman Terrace, London WC1H 9AT

Well served with numerous tube lines, close to Kings Cross & Euston Main Line Stations, even Paris & Belgium, as EUROSTAR is across the road, so even those folks in Kent can get to us direct in a short time. Registration starts at 12.15 pm. We break for lunch at 3pm for an hour, then continue till 8pm, giving time for peeps to travel afar, take dinner with friends or go home at a reasonable time and relax.

We are not part of THE PLACE programming or have any attachment to their activities, we are simply hiring The Lecture Room, so please do not contact them. The room IS smaller than The Light Centre in Victoria ( but just as expensive I might add ) but we will have comfortable chairs to sit on as well as yoga mats.

Facebook Suicide

SOCIAL MEDIA COMMENT by David Parker

2899416335_d7c7b29712In the 1950’s when colour came back in vogue after the darkness of World War 2, women fashioned themselves on movie heroines including home perms and colouring. The image makeover had begun.

Radio Luxembourg, a European short wave radio station playing pop music, followed the American radio tradition of product sponsorship and jingles, which explains why Friday Night was always ‘AMARMI Night’. Amarmi was the L’Oreal of the day, a hair dye you could use at home rather than use the expertise of expensive hair salons. But you could always tell a home job and it was noted with glee by some women in particular, eager to pounce and point the finger that that woman was a ‘suicide blonde’. Dyed by her own hand.

In the Internet Age we can easily makeover our identity on dating and social networking sites like facebook and perform *facebook suicide* by simply deleting or deactivating our virtual reality. It’s a modern version of walking into the sea, pile of clothes on the beach and starting again somewhere else.
Various theories abound the net as to why people do this to themselves with the most popular one being *overwhelm*. Too many friends, messages, event invites, chat buddies, pokes and promotional spam being the cliff they jumped over. Very different indeed from the *suicide scarers* who share their emotional despairing plight online and ask for help or role play assistance.

facebook-death2With security scares, hackers fears and serious stalkers most people using facebook provide fake information somewhere to protect themselves, so lying about age, birthdate or even work details are commonplace. Most of us don’t really care if someone calls themselves Tumbleweed De Bior, is 96 and has a *complicated relationship*. We would be surprised if they hadn’t.

It’s all part of the performance, the alter-ego of amusement. But god help the fake who fails to amuse, who reports what petrol station they have just visited or has 5000 friends but only 5 ever reply to posts. Unforgivable. Then you get serial relationship addicts who perform a service to us all, reminding us that posting *IN A RELATIONSHIP* two weeks after that first date is also the first step toward Codependency Anonymous. Like bystanders at the Colosseum, we watch and stare as the lion of temporary love snarls at the brave illusion of longevity. Then the inevitable happens – it ends in tears and the facebook friends/rescuers rush in with kisses on a stretcher, identifying the pain of rejection, offering hearty soundbites to cover the wounds of failure and unfairness of it all. But two weeks later, they return with another trophy in hand on FB, another victim, another David to fight the Goliath of approval addiction. Now that’s what I call real facebook suicide.

No boundaries, limited emotional intelligence, no time to waste. It’s called ‘love’. The addiction to be approved of. Codependents are inclined to be a bit all or nothing, hard on the outside, soft centred toward the rim, waiting, searching for solution but often living in the world of the *unavailable*. They can have high goals, even higher ideals and an extreme sense of perfectionism wrapped around a core of procrastination. Like Lord ‘Mandy’ Mandleson they are “Fighters not Quitters*, often *coping* with life instead of living it for higher purpose. Many people with long term illness fit this type, I certainly did, but like others, with help and experienced functional support learn to live again, despite circumstance, without blame or inner revenge of the world around them. We discovered a level of acceptance leading to spiritual growth, gratitude and self respect.

Facebook-suicide.jpgWithin the urban dictionary *facebook suicide* refers to deleting and disappearing identity from cyberspace, via overwhelm, information overload, a serious stalking presence or an act of attention like a teenager sulking in his room. Until we learn to face the world on it’s terms, we will always attract rejection.
I focus on three words in my seminars : REJECTION, RIVALRY & REBIRTH. By playing with and accepting rejection as normal and healthy, we grow into adults. By releasing the need to be number one all the time, and solving sibling rivalry, the requirement for competition and winning withers. You have already WON, why the need to WIN again? . . and again?

images-3When someone wins around you – bathe in their glory, honour the aliveness not the death of losing. Jealousy can be the kiss of death. Never compare and despair. Don’t be tempted to destroy your creative outputs and your ideas – put them away – for the drawer can be pulled out another day for review and refreshment. When you take this approach to life, the law of attraction delivers peace.

Facebook suicide, or the un-intentional duvet day, procrastination and separation from human contact are all elements to watch in order to heartily belong to the world of living, not existing, coping or suicidal thinking. Deleting yourself from life, risk, rejection and experimentation is simply a slow death of spiritual energy. So take a deep breath – and savour your life adventure –

or join us for our MONTHLY BREATHE and come back into your body.
