INTRO

WHAT IS BREATH MEDICINE?

Breath Medicine is a therapeutic, science-based approach to healing and integration of trauma and stress.  It is an embodiment path to access and awaken our inner gifts to meet life balanced, happy, inspired and at peace. Supported by ancient wisdom and practices of the Tao to align body, mind and soul; this modality is the result of 28 years of practicing Connected Breathwork, such as Rebirthing Transformational Breathwork and BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release, married with 26 years experience in various forms of therapeutic bodywork, specialising in Chi Nei Tsang (Chinese belly massage) and 5 Element / somatic dance practices and work as a nutritional and herbal practitioner. 

 

Connected Breathwork is a continuous breath without pause unifying the inhale with the exhale. When this is applied through an open mouth, the sympathetic nervous system is activated giving us access to past traumas and unfulfilled flight, fight and freeze responses that get locked in the body. If anxiety or other overwhelming responses are already active, we use the Connected Breath through the nose to access and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.

 

When we can meet all of ourself, our sensations, emotions and feelings with love, welcome and curiosity; we have an opportunity for a healthy release of blocked and stagnated energy and an awakening of powerful inner resources and creative life-force energy. The increased movement and oxygenation of the blood is incredibly detoxifying and healing on all levels. Many feel like a huge weight has been lifted from their bodies and mind, experiencing optimism and positivity, claiming to have clear insights as to where life wants to take them, feel pain free and find peace with what has been previously challenging.

 

Breath Medicine is a wholistic system including various breath practices, somatic movement and dance and herbal/nutritional support.

TESTIMONIALS

WHOLISITC LEARNING

Breath Medicine fuses teachings from many fields of study, both academic and spiritual.  There is a strong focus on Taoist practices; which offer a fundamental understanding of the body and how it carries energy.  We also use the 5 Elements in everything we do; to understand our connection with ourselves and the world around us. 

EXPERIENCED TEACHING

Daisy Kaye, founder of Breath Medicine,  has been teaching for over 25 years world-wide, including teacher trainings for the last 7 years. Daisy is a Universal Tao Instructor, Breathwork Facilitator, bodyworker, herbalist and founder of Sacred Cacao and 5-Element Dance.  Her methods create harmony through integration and personal responsibility of mind, body and spirit.

QUALITY OF TOUCH

Breath Medicine puts safety first; both physical and energetic. We believe hands-on touch exchange  should only be given after teaching quality of touch, how to listen to and read another's body, cleansing practices, setting a safe container, and deep understanding of the responsibility and honor to work with another human being.

Breath Medicine is a therapeutic, science-based approach to healing and integration of trauma and stress.  It is an embodiment path to access and awaken our inner gifts to meet life balanced, happy, inspired and at peace. Supported by ancient wisdom and practices of the Tao to align body, mind and soul; this modality is the result of 28 years of practicing Connected Breathwork, such as Rebirthing Transformational Breathwork and BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release, married with 26 years experience in various forms of therapeutic bodywork, specialising in Chi Nei Tsang (Chinese belly massage) and 5 Element / somatic dance practices and work as a nutritional and herbal practitioner. 

 

Although BM uses many breath patterns including pranayama, the foundational practice of the school is Connected Breathwork; a continuous breath without pause unifying the inhale with the exhale. When this is applied through an open mouth, the sympathetic nervous system is activated giving us access to past traumas and unfulfilled flight, fight, freeze and please responses that get locked in the body. If anxiety or other overwhelming responses are already active, then we use the Connected Breath or holding breath paterns through the nose to access and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.

 

When we can meet all of ourself, our sensations, emotions and feelings with love, welcome and curiosity; we have an opportunity for a healthy release of blocked and stagnated energy and an awakening of powerful inner resources and creative life-force energy. The increased movement and oxygenation of the blood is incredibly detoxifying and healing on all levels. Many feel like a huge weight has been lifted from their bodies and mind, experiencing optimism and positivity, claiming to have clear insights as to where life wants to take them, feel pain free and find peace with what has been previously challenging.

 

Breath Medicine is a wholistic system including various breath practices, trauma/stress release techniques, somatic movement and dance, ritual and ceremony and herbal/nutritional support.  

 

Each day is connected to harmonising one element starting with the ground up. First we explore our foundations, the Earth: to ground and connect. We then move through the elements of Water: our ability to surrender, soften and let go. Fire: our ability to take action, transform and illuminate. Air: our ability to expand, connect and allow change.  Ether: a deep listening of the subtle forces, an allowing of our inner wisdoms to guide us, the integration and celebration.

 

We share group and one on one assisted and connected Breath Medicine sessions, dance, explore somatic movement and various partner exercises, Qi Gong  and meditations suitable to each element.  You will learn many take home tools including grounding, clearing and protecting techniques, nervous system care and 5-Element massage; a non verbal language of touch.

 

Experience and learn assisted breath and somatic sensing sessions. Although this practice is simple it has been one of my most used practices as a holistic embodiment coach for over 20 years. It is an extraordinary gift to feel, sense and connect with the voice within and beyond your flesh and bones. Listen in for the whispering, your inner being is always communicating.

 

As you experience what it means to hold safe space for your self and each other.  This retreat gives you a chance to witness the power and beauty of Breath, experience first hand how energy and emotions move, and support the return of a healthy balanced nervous system. Also as a receiver you have a loving presence to hold and support you through your journey. How many times have you felt alone and wanted to be held, seen and heard. Here is your chance to receive this.

 

Changes happen in such short spaces of time you may hardly recognise your self or others between sessions. The structural and emotional alignment and growth that happens with this work is such a gift to feel and witness.  

As a certified Breath Medicine practitioner you will cultivate your confidence as a Breathwork facilitator with embodied knowledge and intellectual understanding of the human mental, emotional and physical bodies. Hone your skills as a hands-on practitioner. You have the opportunity to assist and hold space for others and practice your ability to read and respond to all that arises within group sessions.

 

Fully qualified Breath Medicine practitioners can leave empowered and embodied to use deep and effective body and various breathwork practices, diagnose physical and emotional signatures of trauma with body mapping and apply suitable sessions to meet the person as an individual for long-term restoration and inhabitation of emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.

This work shop is open and beneficial to anyone wanting to deepen there already existing breath work or massage practice, also seekers well on there way or beginning there journey into self enquiry and personal healing. Laugh you may but if you are in sales or any position working with other human beings, gaining these skills and understandings will help you connect more deeply, make more sales and develop healthier, safer  relationships.

 

 

In these 3 days we learn to recognise physical and emotional signatures of stress, trauma, and survival patterns with body mapping.  We will explore effective communication, bodywork techniques and applications to create suitable sessions to meet the receiver as an individual, assisting long-term restoration and inhabition of emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.

 

We focus on fascial and joint-release, compression techniques, and the benefits of abdominal-massage and how it affects our overall physical structure and mental health. 

 

Deeply explore the physical effects of trauma and stress on our body, nervous system and life. Learn how to recognise and meet them where and how they need to be met.

 

Quality of touch through 5 element understanding is also emphasised in this training. How to listen to another's body, to sense both physically, energeticly and emotionally. Cultivate how to touch with compassion and loving intention.  As a bodywork practitioner of over 25 years; it is so important to me that no person physically touches another until they understand the honour of the opportunity and quality of touch, as well as having an understanding of the area they are about to work on.  Part of the reason I started my own trainings is from feeling an integral obligation to be teaching students from a place of deep understanding and embodiment as I too often see physical exchange happen in workshops and trainings without sufficient information, energetic boundaries or anatomical knowledge.

SPRING CLEANING THE SOUL

- A FORGIVENESS PROCESS

2 DAY RETREAT / SUPPORT MODULE

  • Forgive and truly live 

  • Find freedom from fear and guilt

  • Meet yourself with compassionate loving kindness

  • Enjoy mental clarity, peace and contentment  

  • Breath freely, sleep deeply

This forgiveness process is designed to support true forgiveness of self and others.  Feelings of betrayal,  loss, fear, guilt,  abandonment, disappointment and resentment that we experience throughout our lives easily translate into mental conditioning, beliefs, emotional response-mechanisms and physical/structural issues. This can have us feeling lonely, alone, isolated, unworthy and unloveable. These feelings are dangerous to our health and wellbeing.  We are community creatures; we need connection, love and care to heal, love and live fully. 

 

Come here to feel safe, heard, held and loved. I've got you... You are deserving, worthy and loveable!

 

Through deep, interpersonal and personal practices of connection, breath, self-enquiry, release rituals, movement, affirmation, forgiveness and self love practices; we will clear the way for mental calm, peaceful emotional equilibrium and bodily alignment.

 

Dissolve your armour, find your voice, speak your truth, give expression to what needs to be heard, seen and felt. Leave feeling lighter, safer, stronger and softer.

 

May there be peace where there's been pain

Forgiveness where there's been hurt 

And a softening wheres there's been a hardening 

 

May we live, love and laugh.

TAO TANTRIC ARTS FOR WOMEN

  • Womb-heart connection, Ovarian Breathing and Breast Massage

The school of Tao Tantric Arts teacher trainings was created by Shashi Solluna and Minke De Vos in 2011. I have had the pleasure and honour to guest and co-teach with them from the beginning.  It is a fusion of Taoist and Tantric practices, rituals and philosophy. Designed to embody our feminine treasures and wisdoms; prepare to go on a beautiful, wild and tender journey of self love, care, empowerment and juiciness.

 

The Tao is the origin of Chinese medicine; an in-depth study of the 5 Elements that make up all of life. The Tao meaning ‘The Way’ looks at how we can harness our inner forces for health, sexual power, vitality and longevity.

 

Tantra is an Indian philosophy. Tantra means “to weave”, and is a path of uniting aspects of life that appear to be separate. Ultimately it is understood that the nature of Ultimate Reality is Oneness, but the appearance of separation can cause us suffering in many areas of life. In Tantra we explore many dualisms, such as love and sex and masculine and feminine; using powerful methods and meditations to unite the two. This has many practical applications, relationships being a major area in which we can apply Tantric methods, wisdoms and ritual.

May we give space for the expression of our divine feminine and masculine in healthy union.

To love is to dance and to dance is to love.

THE SANCTUARY THAILAND

TRAINING LOCATION

Welcome to Paradise...

THE SANCTUARY THAILAND

Breath Medicine Teacher Trainings are being held at the famous Sanctuary detox Retreat in Thailand. The Sanctuary is tucked away on a remote beach called Haad Tien; named after the local Tien trees that grow along the beach-line.  These trees  are hundreds of years old and  very similar to the ‘Tree of Life’. They are said to offer  healing properties, renewal, protection, growth and luck as they connect the land and the sea.

The resort is built on natural granite quartz crystals rock. The ocean tumbled granite is quite unique in that it combines both the element of water and earth, flowing yet deeply rooted, expanding in the duality of emotions and practicality. The granite grounds us and keeps us focused while at the same time allows us to flow and overcome obstacles. you cannot help but be embraced by its energy.

The Sanctuary Resort on Koh Phangan Island is known for its ability to offer guests a deep dive into self awareness and self-care through processes such as massage, detox, yoga, healing, healthy plant base food and discovering a restful time in nature while  making  new friendships.

While our trainings are based here in Koh-Phangan; 3-Day Breath Medicine Workshops are also being held in other locations worldwide, as well as featuring at wellness festivals and events.
