Breathwork Facilitator: Patty Turgeon

Profile picture

When I was 28 years old, a heart attack awakened me to step out of my comfort zone and begin an expansive journey of self discovery. This event inspired me to move from my home in Denver, Colorado to Koh Phangan to become a student of the healing arts. Over the past two years, I have experienced and witnessed profound healing through the power of conscious connected breathing. 

Our breath is the portal to open us to receive more of what the present moment has to offer.  When we learn how to consciously connect to our breath with mindful awareness and breathe in specific rhythms, we can gently move into expanded states to receive guidance and insight straight to our hearts. Breathwork is a profound tool for moving emotions, upgrading limiting beliefs, unleashing creativity and connecting with Divine intelligence. I enjoy sharing these simple breathing tools that open us to guidance from within.

Spiritual Advisor: Venerable Phra Nick Dhammarato

As a Buddhist monk since 2005 in the Theravada lineage, Venerable Phra Nick has cultivated a very deep meditation practice.

Having practiced with a range of Theravada Buddhist teachers, mainly in the Thai forest tradition, and Mahasi-style Vipassana (Insight) practice, he has done several 6 month silent Vipassana retreats and currently focuses on Vipassana and Metta (Unconditional Love) practice. He has also carefully studied the Tipitaka (original teachings of the Buddha) as well as modern teachings on Buddhism, meditation, and psychology.

Venerable Phra Nick attends some of the workshops and closely reviews and guides the course design and book.

I still feel the integration of the divine loving energy in process. It was a very deep, powerful and transformative experience for me and the entire group. Nishan’s approach to teaching this course is nothing short of holy – connected to the divine and intuitively guided, I am beyond grateful for all the benefits that this unique learning and growing experience will bring into my life. 🙏✨ ~ Gabi Stjepanovic

Its depth and beauty are beyond the language. I left the course with a mind in peace and heart full of love. Those days were filled with tears, laughter, fascinating conversations, profound meditations, cuddles, acceptance and delight. I truly recommend it to every single human, no better act of self-love than that! ~Adriana Drobnik

Not only do I feel more equipped and confident to hold space for other people and to speak publically from a place of compassion and humility, but I have taken home healing meditations and breathwork exercises to support my personal practice. Christopher DharmaBum

I experienced healing from deep, longlasting pains during his courses. I also started to give classes to groups and private sessions and felt well prepared for it. Simon Panda
