Spiritual practice, ceremony, and teachings:

Our ancestors had great wisdom, knowledge, and healing. Much still relevant to today’s society. Although the world has shrunk using modern technology, easy travel, and web access, many of these practices have been hidden from our modern lives. It has become more and more important to find and understand our spiritual roots and those of our forbearers across the globe. It is with humility and respect to my mentors that I offer the teachings, healings, and ceremony of those people kind enough to share and empower me to support you.

Taking the meaning of holistic back to its roots, of “the whole”

Using nature and the elements for inspiration and guidance, our holistic workshops are built to encourage and sustain growth, personal understanding, and self-empowerment. With community, integrity, support, and compassion as our ethos, we will guide you with humility, laughter, and community.

Our Holistic courses include

Relaxation and support circle:

Sitting in circle is an ancient tradition, where the tribe would come together to discuss common interests, issues and work together both physically and spiritually to find balance. It’s with respect to our ancestor’s wisdom we offer a place for likeminded individuals to come, relax, recharge, laugh, cry, talk and seek advice from the circle.

Evenings will be based around our usual mix of ancient Shamanic and Daoist practices with elements of empowerment thrown in where needed.

Expect guided meditations, shamanic journeying, group support, openness, drumming, ancient wisdom, fun and laughter. This is an opportunity to create and join a tribe of like-minded individuals and start your week off, in a balanced and holistic manner.

Meditation sessions:

Coming together for relaxation, peace, and tranquillity. we offer varied meditation styles and formats, including visual guided journeys, traditional Buddhist, and Daoist meditations, silent and music accompanied meditation.

Events include:

Full moon meditations: join us outside under the moon and stars as we reflect, find calm and enjoy both silent and guided meditations.
Guided meditation sessions throughout the week.
Reflective meditation practice: for those looking to expand their knowledge of meditative practice.

Breathwork:

From traditional meditation and shamanic breath practices, to the modern-day processes of focusing and adapting our breath consciously. Breathwork offers healing from past traumas, transpersonal experiences and increased focus and awareness. We offer both traditional and modern approaches to breathwork for, healing, relaxation, empowerment and finding yourself.

Sweat lodges:

Sweat Lodges and the purification ceremonies held within them have been part of ancestral ceremonies for thousands of years. Although mostly known from Native American tribes, sweat lodges are found in (amongst other) Nordic, African, Celtic, Siberian, Roman and Peruvian historical and spiritual practice.

These ancient teachings and methods have been passed down by our forefathers so we can experience, heal, and purify in the way of our ancestors. Not just for ourselves but for the world around us. Partaking in a “sweat” is a deep, powerful, and transformative practice that can bring about genuine emotional cleansing.

Firewalks:

Since the earliest days of humanity, a spiritual link has developed between fire’s cleansing energies, meditative qualities, and raw power. Inseparably bound to our physical needs of safety, light, and warmth, working with fire is a tangible link to our earliest days and beliefs.

It is with great pleasure that we offer our informal evening of guided meditations, reflection, and ancestral stories, working directly with the elemental energies of fire.

The evening will start in a traditional yurt with guided meditations, discussions, support, and reflection, before the opportunity to work directly with the fire in preparation for a meditational Firewalk, based on the practices of our ancestors.

  • positive review  I attended the recent ‘Evening of Firewalking & Meditation’ hosted by Elemental Empowerment and I can honestly say the whole experience from start to finish was fantastic. Kia was so engaging throughout the evening, he is enriched with wisdom and knowledge. I felt captivated by the power of the fire and the teachings Kia presented throughout the session. If you want a chance to feel empowered and fulfilled then I highly recommend looking to the events hosted by Elemental Empowerment. On the plus side you will also have lots of fun! The evening was so well organised and the whole team was extremely friendly and professional. Thank you so much to all those involved, I’m so excited to attend more events in the future! ?

  • positive review  Firstly, thank you for allowing me to come along to attempt to capture some of the fire walking. As this was my 1st time at an event like this I was unsure what to expect, i knew a friendly welcome and atmosphere was a given as i used to work with Kai 20 years ago..... everyone was friendly and there with one goal, to enjoy the experience (safely) Even though I was there in a "professional " capacity, Kai encouraged me to join in with the "activities " before the actual walks, not only did this help me feel like part of the group it also helped on a personal level - having let life take over me for so long, just having some "me" time and doing some proper meditation (that I have not done for years, but will make time to now) was a huge benefit. Whether you are there just to walk the coals or are looking for a breakthrough or anything in between makes no difference, you will be supported but not pushed to reach your goal. I'm looking forward to attending more, especially now j have the camera settings sorted 😉

  • positive review  Second firewalk now done with Kai Bridges at Elemental Empowerment. Kai was again professional, supportive, calm and informative and made the whole evening feel safe from the start and such fun. It was a different experience to my first firewalk as it was outside under a starlit sky with the moon shining through and bats flying around with the fire nearby on a warm summer evening. My first one was on a cold January night. It was an amazing evening from start to finish with a wonderful group of people some of whom I met for the first time. I would highly recommend an evening of firewalking with Kai and his fantastic team comprising Rachel and Liam??

  • positive review  I attended my first firewalking event with the folks of elemental empowerment, which was in of itself, pretty cool, and I felt in safe hands. The evening event was beautiful and everyone involved, a delight to meet. Kai and Rachel made everyone feel welcome. Both clearly work very hard, but most significantly, I felt are genuine in their spirituality yet wonderfully grounded. Thank you And I look forward to experiencing more at Clophill.

  • positive review  I attended the intro to Shamanic Journeying at the weekend and loved every minute of Kai’s teachings and the warm welcome he offered all of us. He really goes above and beyond to enable you to get the most from the workshop and has a genuine empathy and interest in every individual. The group were all lovely too, making this whole experience one I will not forget and I will continue to use Kai’s teachings to continue my spiritual path. Thank you ?? I will most definitely be back soon xx
