In September, ABA member Joshua Alexander attended New Zealand's annual Breathwork conference, set among the rolling mountains of the Coromandel Coast, near Hot Water Beach.
Each day commenced with a group breath, followed by a series of breath related workshops. The evenings were by candlelight, with amazing food and conscious conversations. One of the highlights for Joshua was that natural landscape, in particular, the labyrinth set among the valley's forest floor (pictured). It became a space to process, ground and connect with the energy of the land.
New Zealand's Breathwork community invites Australia's Breathwork community to come across the ditch and join future Breathwork events. That invitation is, of course, reciprocated to NZ brothers and sisters too.
The New Zealand Breathwork community had this to report:
"Our weekend live-in Conference, Friday 13th to Sunday 15th September 2019, was a time of connecting, breathing, sharing and learning at beautiful Te Moata Retreat Centre in Tairua, Coromandel, New Zealand.
Practitioners and interested others came from all over New Zealand and an Australian Breathworker (Joshua Wrest) came all the way from Canberra, Australia."
