A realization and deeper understanding of yourself awaits you... Perhaps you are ready to bring in something new, to plant seeds of intention and growth, or to gain higher insight.

On Breathwork...

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, 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.

The Sacred Breath Method ™ is a portal or gateway to non-ordinary states of consciousness where profound healing and transformative experiences can occur. Many say it is revolutionary and life-changing. 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 the Sacred Breath Method ™ incorporates conscious, connected breathwork, intentional ceremony, powerful music, high grade essential oils, vibrational sound, energy work, group circling, quantum breakthrough coaching, deep processing and various other tools to invoke the deeper aspects of one's being. Integration techniques follow the breathwork journey so that the experience may be solidified into day-to-day life.

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 facets of self and a releasing of limiting perceptual lenses. Additionally, the breathwork will catalyze a powerful cellular healing process in the breather that is difficult to put into words and can only be experienced. There is an infinite wellspring of love, creativity, inspiration, passion, abundance and vitality awaiting you, just on the other side of releasing residual fear, trauma, pain, blockages, stagnations or false beliefs. Breathwork seeks to clear all that stands in the way of our most luminous expression and higher embodiment.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BREATHING NEED HARDLY BE STRESSED. IT PROVIDES THE OXYGEN FOR THE METABOLIC PROCESSES; LITERALLY IT SUPPORTS THE FIRES OF LIFE. BUT BREATH AS "PNEUMA" IS ALSO THE SPIRIT OR SOUL. WE LIVE IN AN OCEAN OF AIR LIKE FISH IN A BODY OF WATER. BY OUR BREATHING WE ARE ATTUNED TO OUR ATMOSPHERE. IF WE INHIBIT OUR BREATHING WE ISOLATE OURSELVES FROM THE MEDIUM IN WHICH WE EXIST. IN ALL EASTERN AND MYSTIC PHILOSOPHIES, THE BREATH HOLDS THE SECRET TO THE HIGHEST BLISS.”

- Alexander Lowen, The Voice of the Body


The Biological Need for Breathwork in the Modern World

Billions of pounds of chemicals are being introduced into our air, water, soil and food annually and the impact these toxins have on our health and planet is critical. Every time we take in toxins from our environment, they enter our body and redistribute through our cells. Breathing deeply, however, cleanses our system of residual toxins and allows for oxygenated blood to circulate, purify and nourish our body. Breathing deeply also increases respiration and circulation, and as a result, improves the flow of lymphatic fluid, aiding in the elimination of waste in over 600 nodes throughout the body. In fact, did you know that breathing alone is responsible for 70% of toxin elimination within the body?


“THE RIVER IS NOW. THIS MOMENT. THIS BREATH BETWEEN US. THE SPACE BETWEEN YOUR HEARTBEATS. THE MOMENT BEFORE YOU BLINK. THE INSTANT A THOUGHT FLASHES THROUGH YOUR MIND. IT IS EVERYTHING THAT IS AROUND US. LIFE. ENERGY. FLOWING, ENDLESSLY FLOWING, CARRYING YOU FROM THEN...TO NOW...TO TOMORROW. LISTEN. YOU CAN HEAR THE MUSIC OF IT...”


TOP HEALTH BENEFITS OF BREATHWORK EXPLAINED: BREATHWORK...

- Reduces Anxiety: Many of us are in constant, low-grade stress as a result of the modern world and we tend to breathe shallowly and quickly. Deep and conscious breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which kicks off the natural relaxation response. This is the exact opposite of a stress response. Breathe slower, deeper, and more consciously to reduce anxiety.

- Increases Clarity and Focus: Conscious breathing fully oxygenates the brain. Try three slow, deep, conscious breaths the next time you are about to make an important decision. Feel the clarity. Notice your ability to focus more intentionally on the subject at hand.

- Elevates Mood: Ancient Shamanistic and Pranayama teachers in India reached altered states of consciousness through breathwork. Through a practice of noticing and thus controlling your breathing, you can create a consistent elevated mood with deep, slow, and conscious breaths throughout your day.

- Feeds Healthy Cells: Cancer can’t live… where? The 1931 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Otto Warburg who discovered that anaerobic diseases such as cancer cells cannot thrive in a highly oxygenated environment. A preventative measure? Take deeper breaths. Breathwork allows the breather to receive up to 60% more oxygen.

- Allows Your Skin to Breathe: Deep, intentional breaths stimulate blood flow to the skin for a more radiant and natural glow. Breathwork also helps to prevent premature aging.

- Promotes Digestion: A relaxed body supports proper organ function. We require healthy organ function to support our body’s systematic activities including digestion, elimination, and absorption.

- Eliminates Oxidative Stress: Deliberate breathing delivers more oxygen to your tissues. This increases the amount of oxygen in the body’s tissues and reduces the risk of hundreds of diseases.

- Reduces Cravings: Deep, conscious breathing can avert the need for an outside substance. The next time you reach for the soda/tobacco/alcohol/junk food/sweets/etc (or whatever your crutch may be), take three conscious breaths and ask yourself if this external stimulus is really what you are looking for. Feel the empowerment within yourself. Go from substances to substance.

- Lowers Blood Pressure: Long, slow, deep breaths fully oxygenate the heart muscle. This reduces heart rate and blood pressure.

- More Restful Sleep: Deep, conscious breathing is known to stimulate the pineal gland, which is associated with sleep patterns. You may also notice more lucid dreaming.

Because breathwork increases oxygenation throughout the body, it additionally: improves energy levels, stimulates circulation, heals wide-spectrum addictions, and improves well-being for many conditions and ailments such as chronic stress, asthma and respiratory problems, headaches, low energy, psychosomatic illnesses, anaerobic diseases, and many others. Breathwork also boosts the immune system, reduces chronic fatigue, dissolves pain, and more.
