Event description

Description

Transpersonal Breathwork is a modern shamanic practice for self-discovery and self-exploration.

It combines intense breathing, evocative music, bodywork, expressive drawing and group process.
These elements combined with effort on the participant's part allow engagement in an adventure of self-discovery accompanied by meaningful experiences both before, during and after the breathwork session itself.

What to Expect
Participants can re-experience events from their biographic history and the process of birth, as well as the potential apprehension of events in the cosmos and of what Carl Jung calls Archetypes (i.e. hero, healer, mother, creator, rebel, warrior). They can experience new deepness to the feelings of trust and safety. Breathers could also gain new helpful perspectives on their own suffering and that of others. Participants can expect the unexpected.

Event Details
This workshop will run on November 17 from 8:30 am to approximately 7 pm.

The event will be hosted at a resort in Breckenridge with parking onsite. If you have any questions or want to have a discussion about the workshop please reach out on the facebook page or via the website contact form @ www.breckbreath.com

What is Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork?

Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork uses a workshop format that promotes experiential self-exploration and personal development in a safe and supportive setting. The basic components are intensified breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, expressive drawing, and group process.

What is a workshop like?

It begins with a talk introducing the work of Stanislav Grof, M.D., the creator of Holotropic Breathwork. Then group members introduce and say a little bit about themselves. Next, the practical details of a Breathwork session are discussed. After a break, the session begins and typically continues for 2-3 hours. Afterward, people draw, paint, and color in a completely free-form, open way. Finally, people have an opportunity to talk about as much of their experience as they wish with the rest of the group.

What is a Breathwork session like?

A session begins with each person lying on a comfortable mat with eyes closed or covered, which helps direct attention inward. A brief guided relaxation exercise follows. Once relaxed, people are instructed to breathe more deeply and more rapidly than normal and progressively intensify their breathing. Evocative music simultaneously encourages and supports the breathing process. In twenty minutes to half an hour, most people begin to experience enhanced feelings, enriched imagery, or other non-ordinary experience. Experience can open to past life events, birth experiences, and even into places that transcend personal experience.

In a Breathwork session, each person is attended by a partner (sitter), who looks after simple needs by providing water, tissues, blankets, etc. Most importantly, however, the partner gives focused attention to their breather. In a subsequent session breather and sitter exchange roles.

How long does a session last?

A typical session lasts two to three hours, although participants often say that they have no sense of clock time during their experience. Toward the end of a session, a facilitator may offer simple bodywork to resolve lingering body feelings, such as tensions or tightness anywhere in their bodies.

What kinds of experience do people have in Breathwork sessions?

People can vividly re-experience events from their life history that lie below waking consciousness. They may relive birth experiences from birth, connect with experiences of people who lived in the past. They may enter archetypal and transcendent realms.

In the words of William James, the first American psychologist and founder of transpersonal psychology:

“Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence; but apply the requisite stimulus, and at a touch, they are there in all their completeness, definite types of mentality which probably somewhere have their field of application and adaptation. No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness quite disregarded.”
