Whatever has brought you to this website, one thing is certain, you are curious about what it means to be fully alive. You are fatigued by old systems and outdated ideas. You have a sacred restlessness with a desire to live with more energy, deeper meaning, and inspiration. You are seeking a fresh approach to your health and life.

You may be feeling helpless and frustrated, tired of being tired. Perhaps you are concerned about a loved one. Maybe you are dealing with an illness that no one has been able to understand or help with. Maybe you are burnt out, anxious or terminally ill and just need to be heard.

For whatever reason you are here, I hope that you find the inspiration, information and guidance that you are seeking on your path to energy, health and growth.

Drowning in Depression – what is the alternative?

By Dr Ela Manga

We are in the midst of a devastating crisis of despair and confusion. Our society is spiraling into a state of debilitating anxiety, desperately seeking a way out. While we are having conversations about the statistics and feeling incapacitated by them, hundreds of South Africans are attempting suicide every day, and many are succeeding.

It is time that we start looking deeper.  The crisis of suicide, anxiety and depression is a crisis of disconnection with ourselves and each other. It is a symptom of deep divides. It is a crisis of meaning and lack of humanity.


Still Action: Inward Practices for Outward Impact

All over the world, communities are fractured, people are growing more isolated and we feel internal dis-ease and disconnection. What can we do – in our individual and collective lives – to create a shift – a tipping point – to a more inclusive and cohesive world?

During the Still Action Retreat, Dr Ela Manga and Dr Lucy Draper-Clark will explore ways to move within in order to act in the world with greater impact.  Practices will include yin and yang yoga, mindfulness and breathwork.

Friday, 3 May to Sunday, 5 May at the Tara Rokpa Centre, Groot Marico. For more info info@breathworkafrica.co.za
