Conscious Breathwork ~ Expanded
Time & Location
About the Event
This Conscious Breathwork event is ideal for experienced breathers who would like to explore and unravel deeper layers of the psyche with an extended breath journey. We will start with a short introduction and chat about Breath as a Tool for Transformation, followed by a calming breath and body awareness practice, then we will engage in the technique of Conscious Connected Breathing.
Afterwards we will take a moment to ground ourselves and have some tea, and as part of integrating our experience we will do Mandala drawing. We will then enjoy a delicious vegan lunch outside in the garden. Since this workshop is an extended version of my usual Conscious Breathwork sessions, I would like to offer a space and adequate time for participants to share and integrate their experiences.
The workshop will flow as follow:
- 30 minutes Introduction and Breath Awareness,
- 90-105 minutes Breathwork journey (ending organically)
- 30-45 minutes Grounding and Mandala Drawing
- 60 minutes lunch, sharing, relaxing
More about the technique
Conscious Connected Breathing is a method of breath control that gives rise to expanded states of consciousness and has an effect on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as we activate the body’s inner healing intelligence.
The journey will be guided by carefully curated music and the intelligence of your own circular, connected breath. This combination allows you to move into a heart space while accessing expanded states of consciousness.
The process brings more energy and awareness into the body as the breather experiences a vibrational shift which releases suppressed energy, emotions, stress and trauma. This journey activates both unconscious discomfort and ecstatic bliss as the intelligence of Life Force energy (Prana/Qi) leads us to exactly where we need to awaken and let go.
The process allows one to:
- become aware of self-limiting habits
- open to the capacity for self-healing
- re-pattern dysfunctional breathing patterns
- shift thoughts and feelings around the unknown
- examine limiting beliefs and emotional addictions
- resolve and bring awareness to unhealthy patterns and conditioning
- experience states of pure, unconditional love, acceptance and bliss
During the session you will have the opportunity to access your own internal healing energy and greater knowing in a safely held space, allowing for a powerful shift in yourself and your life.
After the session you will have time to gently come back to your normal state of being, while enjoying a nourishing cup of tea. Integration will be discussed at the end of the workshop and follow-up support will be available if needed.
