After graduating from Oxford University with an M.A. in 1976 I became a resident at the Findhorn Community in Scotland. It was there that I was first introduced to Breathwork in 1979 when I was having a hard time in my relationship with much anger, jealousy and frustration coming up. The Breathwork not only helped me immensely with emotional healing, but also I experienced love, bliss, relaxation and spiritual connection in a way I never had before, notwithstanding several years of meditation practice. I felt that somehow breathwork was something I was already very familiar with even though it was my first experience. I decided to pursue Breathwork. The following year Leonard Orr came to Europe to facilitate his first European training and I became certified as a practitioner. I led Breathworkshops (a word that I coined to replace ‘Breathwork Workshops’!) in Europe, including introducing Breathwork to Wales, and in Japan before moving to the United States. Over the years as I transformed so did my teaching, intention, understanding and practice of Breathwork. This resulted in the creation of ‘Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation’ in 2000 when I was practicing in Marin County, California. I moved to Colorado Springs in 2006 with my wife Savanna, and we currently run a private practice in Colorado Springs, and facilitate Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation Workshops in Colorado and throughout the US. We train Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation practitioners worldwide. Breathwork continues to be an essential force in my personal growth and the gratitude and fulfillment I experience from facilitating and witnessing the profound healing and transformation of thousands of people through Breathwork is at times overwhelming. This work is a powerful and integral part of the current global awakening.
