Alan Dolan, founder of Breathing Space Retreats and breath coach, has spent over a decade changing people’s lives (not least his own) with the simple power of Conscious Breathing.
After graduating from Aston University in the UK he worked overseas in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, forging a career in the high-pressure world of communications. His last position in his “previous incarnation” was as a PR & Communications Manager in the Aerospace industry.
“Alan Dolan is one of the best alternative practitioners/ breathworkers I’ve had the privilege to work with. His level of care for and intuitive understanding about the needs of his clients is second to none and I highly recommend him to any and everyone embarking on a journey of self discovery and/or looking for a way to live a happier, healthier and more peaceful life” – Naomie Harris, star of Bond movie ‘Spectre’Learn More
After taking a sabbatical in order to pursue his interest in things metaphysical, and gaining certification in yoga instruction, transpersonal hypnotherapy, and counseling, Alan was introduced to the wonders of breathwork, and immediately knew that this would form the foundation of the next stage of his journey. Through training with various Breath maestros he has reached the highest level of certification possible and continues to learn every day as he works with clients and groups around the world.
A series of happy coincidences led him to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands at which point he realized that he was ‘home’. Breathing Space Retreats and breathguru.com were born, with Alan’s key message being that YOU are the guru, and your breath is the key. Alan has gone on to gain a wealth of experience in working with the Breath and continues to be based in Lanzarote or as he prefers to call it, ‘The Magic Island’.
He has been hosting retreats and workshops for many years with regular visits to the UK, Ireland, Brazil and most recently Japan. 2017 will see him add Costa Rica and Oman into his schedule.
Alan’s passion is creating permanent positive change as quickly and easily as possible. Conscious Breath is the vehicle for facilitating those changes and his many client testimonials attest to the power of the work.
A series of four workshops in Conscious Breathwork
Alan describes his discovery of breathwork as, “Quite simply the most powerful technique I have ever experienced”. After over thirty years of travelling the globe searching for tools to create rapid positive change Alan found the Breath, and was touched so deeply that he committed there and then to sharing it with as many people as possible. He is elated to be able bring this form of Breathwork to Costa Rica and Rythmia.
In reality, words can only go so far in explaining this work. For Alan it feels like plugging back into a super-conscious state where all things are possible. Allowing the body and Being to take us where we need to go. For some of us that will be physical healing, for others it will mean emotional clearing and for others it will be an exploration of the less tangible aspects of our being. The likelihood is that you will experience some or all of the above during our time together.Read More
This knowledge is available to everyone providing they are given the correct initial guidance. Alan’s role will be to guide and coach during your time together, with the intention that when you part you will have enough experience to be able to initiate your own daily practice safely and effectively.
If you have already worked with your breath in yoga, this will take you to a whole new level altogether. A quantum leap.
If you are completely new to Breathwork then fasten your seatbelt as we are going on the ultimate voyage of discovery. The journey back to Who You Really Are.
