Our Values & Purpose

What is 'Rooted Life'?


To become our bravest, most joy-filled and resilient expressions of ourselves by connecting to self, nature and others.

Here for you

Rooted life is not about us, it is about the community. It's about you and us together.


To live out wholehearted lives, championing each other and loving the whole realm of nature. We long to be a generation that dies having really lived, leaving the planet in a better state than when we arrived.


To use our gifts as health care practitioners, creatives and thinkers to see you become your true you, by connecting to self, nature and others. We do this online or in person through our coaching, mentoring, events and retreats.

Compassionate Curiosity

We make it our life’s work to hold the right questions instead of seeking the right answers. 
We are committed to a growth mindset, seeking to understand ourselves, others and our landscape. We strive to keep our curiosity swaddled in kindness, tenderness and love. May our curiosity be marked by playfulness and hope.

Authentic selves

We strive to show up in life and avoid the BS.
We believe in the sacred life found in each other and nature, and as we live wholeheartedly, we all benefit. We value vulnerability and ‘failure’ as strengths that offer wisdom, healing and an opportunity for connection and belonging. We cheer each other on in our pursuit to live wholeheartedly.

David Jackson aka ‘Jacko’ is a Master Instructor with the Oxygen Advantage. A former professional rugby player, accredited UKSCA Strength & Conditioning coach, NASM performance enhancement & corrective exercise specialist on a mission to make breathwork a normal part of our everyday lives.

In 2013, a traumatic brain injury and a seizure on the rugby pitch forced Jacko to retire from professional rugby. Years later, he discovered this had also negatively impacted breathing patterns, which had been inhibiting full recovery.
