“Discovering the Barefoot Breathing course was, for me, one of those wonderful life changing moments. As I read I became completely immersed in the wonderful guided meditations & inspiring images, the exercises and writings that all spoke to my soul and my heart, and I was amazed because it felt like coming home.
I have gained so much on this amazing journey, most importantly, a previously unimagined depth of connection to Mother Nature that grounds me daily and fills me with such stillness & peace.
The course is so beautifully put together, it allows me to continue to dip in and out of it and there is so much content that I am still discovering new treasures.
Also, knowing the barefoot tribe are there on-line sharing and giving, being able to read and connect with other like-minded souls has made it a richer experience by far.
Barefoot Breathing and Essence of Wild have had such a delicious impact on my life I would wish that everyone could walk this same path & experience even some of the treasures it has bought. Thank you Jackie & Jason for all that you have given us.”

DEEP NATURE CONNECTIONS
“The Barefoot Breathing e-course is beyond beautiful and magical. I’ve always been a nature lover. I thought I was in tune with the seasons and the patterns of nature until I participated in this course. Barefoot Breathing has helped me deepen and expand my connection to nature.
The quality of material exceeds the incredible quantity of material. After printing out the weekly PDFs, I now have a sumptuous book I can refer to over and over again. There are weekly moon meditations and healing mandalas to use as well. The activities are powerful and restorative. In addition, the Wild Essence Community is a great place to share the Barefoot Breathing experience with other like-minded explorers. Who knew removing one’s shoes and breathing outside could be so transformative?”

LOVE IN ACTION
“I took this e-course last September and what a gorgeous and transformative experience it was. I’m not even sure I can describe what a difference the Barefoot Breathing course made to my life. The course itself is love in action. Getting more in touch with nature, getting more in touch with your own soul.
There’s an online forum to connect with others. Stunningly gorgeous photographs. Beautiful and insightful writings. Healing and nourishing recorded meditations. Jackie and Jason are lovely people who have put together a lovely e-course.
Each day I went outside, my bare feet on mama earth, and I took 100 breaths.
Calming. Centering. Grounding. Healing. Even after the e-course ended, I went outdoors and did my barefoot breathing outside until sometime in November, when the chill finally drove me inside. (I am not someone who tolerates cold temperatures very well!)
Warm weather arrived here again in March so I’m back to my practice of barefoot breathing. This nourishing, nurturing, gentle, loving way to connect to self and mama earth. This healing practice of grounding, coming to center, finding inner harmony.”

A YEAR’S WORTH OF JOURNEYING AND EXPLORING
“The Barefoot Breathing course includes such a richness of activities, images, meditations and workbooks that it cannot fail to have something for everyone, for where they are right now. There is so much included that it is really a year’s worth of journeying and exploring.

HEALING THE WOUNDED SOUL
“The Barefoot Breathing course is like being given a key to a secret world that you knew was there but didn’t actually feel a part of. I have all the course material printed off and it makes a beautifully written and illustrated book to work through at our own speed.
PROFOUND INSIGHTS AND INSPIRATION
Barefoot Breathing is, without doubt, a truly magical and inspiring experience. I shall be recommending the course and the Essence of Wild community on my travels.”

“Jackie’s magical nature meditations and healing empathy have allowed me to manifest many deep personal shifts over decades of working with her. Combining her skills with Jason’s stunning photography and his ancestral understanding of Nature’s mysteries creates a sacred gateway into Nature that I cannot wait to step through and experience”.

“Having attend several Essence of Wild workshops and been an avid reader of the newsletter, I am overjoyed that Jason and Jackie are making their beautiful, heart-centred work even more accessible. Their deep connection with nature and spirit coupled with their integrity ensures that everything they do honours the earth and is transformative for her people.”

“I really loved the barefoot breathing session that I had with you and Jason, thank you… a fantatic way to connect… you are both clear, brilliant, patient, funny and kind teachers – I only wish I lived around the corner to you both for more contact, but the barefoot breathing exercises I now practice have been a brilliant addition to my connection to sweet Mother Earth. Thank you both, as ever, for your inspirations xxx”
“The Essence of Wild weekend gave me access to a depth of beauty and wisdom that I had never felt or seen before. I’m left with an abiding sense of being held and supported by every living thing on the planet and beyond. I feel humbled and blessed to continue to experience this intimacy with all things – from the moon, to the grass, to the wind, the living, breathing world that surrounds us.
I’ve had moments before, of course, but now nature is more than just a pretty face. There’s a constant, magical, palpable connection always there, always available, always nurturing. Such simple, gentle profound revelations from two people who live and love what they teach, a powerful partnership. Wonderful, life-changing play. Thank you”.
