Diving Deep, Flying High: Breathwork Retreat
at Eagle Valley, Free State
Friday to Sunday, 25 to 27 May 2018

Breathwork Africa and the Vuka Institute are delighted to welcome Dan Brule, international breathwork teacher, as he facilitates a series of experiential engagements to strengthen your own “breath practice”, enabling you to discover how the breath can shift the trajectory of self, community and the world.

The weekend is an exploration of breath, nature, and community. There will be conscious connected breathing, mindfulness mountain walks, African indigenous practice, community development engagement and fireside conversations.


Dan Brulé
Dan Brulé is a modern-day teacher and healer. Dan is one of the originators of Breath Therapy and was among the first group of Internationally Certified Rebirthers. He is a leading member of Inspiration University, the International Rebirthers Association and the International Breathwork Foundation. He is a master of Prana Yoga (the Hindu Science of Breath), and of Chi Kung/Qigong (Chinese Medical Breathing Exercises).

Few people in the world have more hands-on experience in Breathwork. More than 100 000 people in over 50 countries now apply Dan’s breathing exercises and techniques in their work and in their lives. Among them are Olympic champions and elite martial artists, leading psychotherapists and medical experts; monks, meditators, hospice workers and yoga teachers, performing artists, personal trainers, and many more.

Dan is a co-founder of Baja Bio Sana an intentional community, a teaching and Learning Center, a Permaculture Demonstrations Site, and “eco chic” Resort Retreat. It is the home of the worldwide Breathwork Training Movement. Dan is the author of Just Breathe.

Dr Ela Manga
Dr Ela is an integrated medical doctor committed to bringing heart back into the art of medicine. Her background in western medicine, study of wisdom traditions and deep curiosity has informed her unique approach to health and wellbeing.

In her first book, BREATHE: Strategising Energy in the Age of Burnout, Ela discusses her approach to mental, physical and emotional health through real-life case studies. Ela is the founder of Breathwork Africa, an organisation which advocates the use of breathwork for transformation and provides training to those who want to integrate breathwork into their daily life and take the message of breath further afield.

Kevin Bloom
Kevin is a writer and journalist. He is the co-author of Continental Shift: A Journey into Africa’s Changing Fortunes. His first book, Ways of Staying, won the 2010 South African Literary Award for literary journalism. Kevin’s writing has taken him to many of the world’s conflict zones, where he has witnessed the devastation caused by rent-seeking politicians, callous multinationals, desperate warlords and misguided NGOs.
As co-founder of the Vuka Institute, he brings this experience to bear on the search for inward-focused responses to our most urgent collective crises. He is currently training as an advanced breathwork practitioner with Dr Ela Manga.

Guest Speaker
Jay Naidoo, former general secretary of COSATU and minister in President Nelson Mandela’s cabinet, will host a fireside conversation in the main lodge as well as spend time discussing what it means to be human.

The retreat will be held at Earthrise Mountain Lodge on Eagle Valley Farm, close to Ficksburg in the Eastern Free State. The Vuka Institute is a workshop and retreat centre that marries the inspirations of Mind to the demands of Matter in an African context. Rooted in a sacred valley in the Maluti foothills, in a place that’s been revered by healers and seers for millennia, the institute looks beyond dogma to where indigenous wisdom and progressive science meet. Our purpose is to explore and understand what it means to be human, and to seek alternative solutions to our shared environmental, economic and social crises.
