What is Breathwork?

Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world.

The process itself uses very simple means: it combines accelerated breathing with evocative relaxing music in a safe and comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying down, each person uses their own breath and music in the room to enter a non-ordinary relaxed state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for the particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.

Additional elements of the process include focused energy release work and deep inner peace. Breathwork can be done in groups however individual sessions are the most powerful.

Breathwork is a gentle and safe process that encourages everyone to experience and express his or her emotions. The Breathwork technique is based on breath. It encourages breathing to facilitate change. Breath is life. Breathwork is experiencing more of life in the present and resolving influences of our past.

Breathwork assists us to understand the effects our birth has had on our individual self-esteem, relationships and family dynamics as well as more specific issues. It provides a nonverbal way to heal and it takes most people way beyond the more verbal and cognitive therapies. It leads to Self-Mastery. It also results in such powerful emotional and spiritual releases that it addresses one’s whole process from releasing traumas to healing relationships. You can unlock your patterns in life. These patterns although created to support you in the past no longer support your current direction in life. We have received these patterns from our parents and environment through our early years, but we have not looked to see why certain factors occur.
