Breathwork sessions with Edward.

REBIRTHING BREATHWORK is a powerful transformative conscious energy breathing technique. It is the most powerful tool for releasing old trauma, conditioning and negative patterns, that we have ever found. It can sometimes bring about healing in physical body as well, as both the energy body and physical are closely connected.
Many people feed back that Rebirthing is the most powerful transformative experience of their lives.
Often powerful insights occur during sessions that bring about rapid change in one’s life.
It can also:
‚ú® Release old negative behaviour patterns, and subconscious belief systems
‚ú®Heal old emotional wounds and traumas
‚ú®Connects you with your deepest inner truth, with your divine nature
‚ú® Boosts confidence and awareness, and trust in yourself
‚ú® Brings you to a deep inner peace
‚ú® Clears and energises one Chakras and energy system
This process also cleanses and purifies your energetic body and Chakras, and is a must for those interested in Tantra, as it helps open up energy pathways of the body.

''No matter what anybody deals with in daily life, Ananta has the gift to find a quick doorway to connect with the innermost of everybody. She guides people skillfully into truth - with so much humor, love and wisdom! I have attended many retreats with Ananta, and every journey is new, fresh and deep, highlights other forgotten corners in myself. Can highly recommend Ananta!'' Barbara.

My experience in the rebirthing session with Edward goes beyond words. In fact it’s beyond the logical thinking of the mind, diving into the depths of the soul, uncovering the truth of what this journey is all about. 

It was my first time doing rebirthing and had no idea how intense it would be. During my session deep emotions were released from both present and past lives. Insight was gained on what the purpose of this life was and even had visions of past deaths and the day I was born in this life.

I remember clearly having a vision of my father holding me as a newborn, crying tears of joy. The loving kindness I felt from him during our session was beyond anything I’ve ever felt. My session reminded me I am not alone, there are so many guiding the way. I learned not to fear death for we never really do die. Lastly, to move forward on this path sharing that loving kindness I felt with the world, for it is that energy that unites us all in this beautiful dream, called life.

''The event was incredible. I laughed, I cried and I saw some beautiful human interactions that touched everyone involved. I could see Ananta energetically connecting her presence with the participants inviting them to drop all their stories and fully engage in the stillness of the moment. Beautiful event grateful to have participated.'' Robert.

''Brilliant heartfelt deeply sweet.......what an honor and gift and comfort to be among such elevated humans'' - Teresa

Thank you Edward for a great rebirthing session. I could not imagine that it could be so simple and so powerful, and you are holding the space with great care and experience. As a healer myself I am impressed by the simplicity and efficiency of the technique, which powerfully goes around the conscious mind. I could imagine now this technique as a complement to my approach, which is more about getting conscious of our blocks and talents on our Soul’s journey, and I will recommend your work to my patients.
Many thanks !

''Ananta is the embodiment of real freedom and truth. I am deeply touched again and again by her love for the truth, her compassion and her empathy.

love Anna''

"Getting involved for eight weeks with Ananta helped me to bring to light the deeply hidden obstacles of an early trauma from the depths of the unconscious. Both pair work and the personal meetings with Ananta turned out to be in-depth experiences in self-exploration. Ananta is a competent, experienced, spiritual “guide” with a clear view and a big heart to which nothing is alien."  ~ Karen, USA

Whilst I have been on other personal growth experiences, Ananta is unusual in that she has this ability to envelope the room with both powerful, warm, loving energy, yet, simultaneously, not so much as strip away the layers of the onion, but as to blast straight through to the core, gently, but instantly and effectively!
Above all the generous magic, she is fun, with a wonderful 'don't take it so seriously' self-deprecating sense of humour, and lots of laughter.

I am still realising the effects weeks later, and imagine that they will continue to recycle to help me when I need them. 

Thank you Ananta!

Andy Robertson

The rebirthing session I did with Edward was an amazing experience. The breathing technique worked very powerfully and helped me to release a lot of tension I was holding in my body. The whole process was a profound inner journey and gave me insights in things I was struggling with in my life. Afterwards I felt deeply connected with myself. I was super relaxed and energised at the same time. This effect lasted also days after the session. I felt renewed energy to take some steps I was postponing for some time and my body felt recharged. Edward has a very calming presence and his patience and loving awareness made me able to go deep in the session and to open myself fully for what needed to be released. I am very grateful for this. Thank you!
