Have you ever given much thought to breath? It’s something you do every second of every day, but not something we give much thought. In today’s conversation we get to learn about the transformative power of breath. How accessible it is and how useful a tool it can be. Today’s guest is Benedict Beaumont, a Breathwork Facilitator, Yoga Teacher, and founder of the Breathing Space School of Breathwork. We get to hear some interesting stories from Ben’s path to get him where he is today including where things needed to shift and allow for a breakthrough.
We also made time for breathwork which Ben describes as “...an extraordinary, extraordinary, transformational experience… I call it therapy for those people who don't wanna talk about their problems or meditation for those people who can't meditate.”
Breathing Space has regular facilitator trainings and the one led by Ben starts November 14th, so your opportunity to sign up, is now. There's more about this toward the end of the episode.
Before he discovered Breathwork, Ben was mostly a high school teacher in the South Coast of England, sometimes a chef and chalet manager in the French Alps, occasionally a writer and always an adventurer. He now lives in Canada with his wife and young daughter.
