Breathwork ceremony

led by tai hubbert​

sun. mar. 17

4-6:30pm •​​ $65

“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. 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: http://www.swordandlotus.com/ceremonyprep

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 participants, and pre-registration is required.

important information: registration is non-refundable non-transferrable (for another event, or to another person). studio doors lock promptly at the start of all events to protect the privacy + belongings of students, as well as to promote sanctity of space in the yoga room once an event has started. additionally, we do not have a studio phone; ringtones and savasana don’t go so well together. email us (info@ritualhouseseattle.com) if you need support in any way! ​​​


an urban retreat: silence is..

silence is...the full spectrum

led by emily parzybok

sat mar 23 • 9a-3p • $25​

Spend a Sunday in guided silence exploring the practice perspective + observation.

Silent practice and group silence can be an incredible tool for relaxation, introspection and discovery. We will come together Sunday morning at Ritual House and explore silence in these experiences:

1230-1: Seated Meditation
1-2: Yin Practice and Contemplation

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!

note on payment/pricing:
in an effort to make this retreat accessible to almost all we have priced it as low as we can and are covering costs. if you are willing + able, you can make an optional dana donation the day of the retreat. 100% will go to Emily for her time and teaching.

“What a truly extraordinary experience. I was simply blown away.” –S.L.

This breathwork ceremony is offered as a dedicated space for men to come together in support of healing, integration, and engaging from a place of deeper purpose, authenticity, power, and freedom. It is an opportunity to reclaim the full spectrum of one’s being and integrate that which has been dissociated, fragmented, and sublimated due to cultural, familial, and relational conditioning, and to the various experiences of daily life.

The afternoon will be an experiential journey of active, deep breathing in which nonproductive patterns held in the body and mind can be accessed and released. As the only function of the Autonomic Nervous System that can be consciously influenced, breathwork is a powerful tool for accessing that which is stored in the body and subconscious, typically beyond the reach of more narrative and analytical-based processes. In engaging a continuous, deep breathing pattern, you can track upstream to the root of symptoms manifesting downstream, including experiences of inner conflict, disassociation and numbness, shame, anger, depression, anxiety, insomnia, judgment, addiction, and a myriad of physical and psychological ailments.

This practice – similar to Holotropic, Rebirthing, and Transformational styles of breathwork – is also a vehicle for opening the doors of perception and accessing “non-ordinary states of consciousness” that can bring about profound new perspective, understanding, and insight to support inspired, aligned, and authentic living.

Tai holds a strong, compassionate, sacred, and masculine-loving container for deep work of the self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey.

women’s breathwork circle

led by tai hubbert​

sun. may 5

4-6:30pm •​​ $65

“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.
