Silent retreat can be a powerful experience. It can also sound a bit intimidating. If you’re new to silent retreat or have questions for us, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Because we are only spending about 6 hours in silence, this might actually be a great way to discover this practice without feeling overwhelmed on a longer retreat!

*Bring your own lunch and journal. this will help us keep enrollment cost accessible!

women’s breathwork circle

led by tai hubbert​

wed. dec. 12​

7-9pm •​​ $55

“The ceremony was the most profound healing experience I have had to date.” –T.F.

In the potent field that’s created when women come together in support of healing and awakening, you will engage an active, connected breathing technique to create the conditions for healing inyour body, and reconnect to the wisdom that lies beyond any confusion, self-doubt, and sense of smallness. In reclaiming the fullness of your breath, your body has the opportunity to dischargeenergetic holdings (from trauma, daily stressors, undigested emotional experiences, etc.) that consume your life force energy and limit your capacity to rest in your body with ease, clarity, joy, love,and power.

Although this practice is simple in technique, it can be strong in effect. If any of the conditions apply to you, please contact Tai (tai@swordandlotus.com) to discuss further prior to registering:pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, recent major surgeries or communicable diseases, or history of significant trauma.

For more information about the nature of this work and preparation for the ceremony, please visit Tai’s website HERE. Tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey, including hands-on work and shamanic healing.

These ceremonies are limited to 15 women (or anyone identifying as female), and pre-registration is required.
