About This Center
Breath is the carrier wave of life itself, the sacred bridge between spirit and matter, and the chariot of the soul. The word breath and soul, or spirit, are synonymous in many ancient languages. The Sanskrit word 'prana', the Latin 'spiritus', the Greek 'pneuma', the Hebrew 'ruach' and the Old Norse ‘önd’, are all words that unify the concepts of breath and spirit. Breathing techniques have been used by ancient cultures around the world for eons in order access spiritual dimensions of the self, for the purpose of deep insight and transformation. In more modern times, various techniques stemming from this core practice have begun to permeate healing communities around the globe, with diverse benefits ranging from trauma release to transpersonal revelation.
Conscious Breathwork is the purposeful application of conscious, connected breathing in both one-on-one and group settings, guided by a skilled practitioner and the Spirit of Breath, held within a ceremonial container. The Spirit of Breath in this case refers to the multi-dimensional collective intelligence that naturally seeks balance and wide-spectrum healing, surrounding and guiding the the act of conscious breathing. For thousands of years humans have found by changing the rate, ratio, volume and flow of the respiratory cycle, there can be experiential and perceptual shifts in consciousness, spiritual awareness, cognition and self-identity. More recently, when applied therapeutically, the shifts experienced in conscious, connected breathing seem to be linked to a deeper sense of inner connection, somatic roundedness, emotional empowerment and psycho-spiritual integration.
More specifically, our Sacred Breath modality of conscious breathwork is a portal or gateway to non-ordinary states of consciousness where profound healing and transformative experiences can occur. Through the unfathomable intelligence of breath (Spirit), the breather is guided on a personal journey into their being or soul. The multi-faceted experience of our format incorporates conscious, connected breathwork, intentional ceremony, powerful music, high grade essential oils, vibrational sound, energy work and various other tools to invoke the deeper aspects of one's being. Throughout the breathwork process, the healer within (the one who knows all already) will illuminate that which the breather needs to see, allowing for both a reclamation and reintegration of any abandoned parts of self and a releasing of limiting perceptual lenses. Processing and integrating follows the breathwork journey.
Sacred Breath Journeys are designed to dive deep into the heart of what matters most and to stimulate an inner devotion to the manifestation of our most luminous embodiment.
When we come together in openness and receptivity to weave beauty and transformation over the course of our 7 day immersions, each participant (including the facilitators) will leave a completely different person- a truer and more authentic version of themselves. Our retreats and trainings are a powerful opportunity to shed that which no longer serves you and step into your highest potential. The space created for your metamorphosis will be one of grace and profundity, gentle yet deep.
Sacred Breath journeys are for both men and women of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels.
There is no greater journey than the one that you must take to discover all of the mysteries that lie within you...
