“what an incredible introduction to breathwork. the ceremony was amazing, humbling, and life changing.” –n.s.
as the only function of the autonomic nervous system that can be consciously controlled, the breath is one of the most powerful tools available to support emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.
without conscious awareness and management, the breath is shaped by one’s reaction to the world.
in experiences of fear, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, and stress, the breath is held and restricted. when we feel safe, connected, and relaxed, the breath is deep and free flowing. over a lifetime of stress, trauma, heartbreak, and having our open receptivity aggressed upon, most adults have developed patterns of tension where the breath is restricted and energy is locked in the body. the result can be experiences of chronic anxiety and insomnia, to depression and exhaustion, and a myriad of other physical and emotional ailments.
in this ceremony, you will be guided in an active, deep breathing technique (similar to rebirthing & holotropic breathwork) to unwind these deeply held patterns and liberate your life force energy.
in doing so, there is greater capacity to rest in your own being with clarity, power, and ease, and to fully receive the gifts of the present.
although this practice is simple in technique, it can be strong in effect.
