Do you feel consumed by guilt and shame? Are you overwhelmed and misled by harmful inner voices? Are you untrusting of your body and your emotions?
Have you lost connection to our inner wisdom? Do you feel stuck in a loop?
Many, if not most of us have experienced trauma: harm at the hands of other people, struggles in our bodies and minds that make us feel angry with or ashamed of ourselves, and more. In the aftermath (and especially if it is ongoing), we find ourselves internalizing and replicating harmful narratives. We learn to doubt ourselves and what we know. These narratives can grow like wildfire, disconnecting us from ourselves. If the harm was done by another, people around us might be telling us we need to forgive others in order to move on but what if forgiveness of another feels impossible? Perhaps then, we can begin with ourselves— forgiving ourselves. In this workshop with the breath, we will dive deeply into our bodies to feel what they are holding onto, to find the root of shame and other harmful patterns as we reconnect to our inner wisest selves.
Breathwork is an active meditation that helps bring attention to the cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and somatic experiences and intelligence living in our bodies. It connects us to the outdated stories we carry while releasing blocked and stagnant energy, reconnecting us to joy, clarity, creativity, okayness, and aliveness. The practice reminds us we all, each of us, hold the power within ourselves to shift and heal parts of ourselves. It’s you and your breath; the breath is the medicine and our bodies are wise. It’s a psychedelic and transcendent experience. There’s a very good chance you will leave feeling more at ease and in love with yourself.
Join us for this powerful work. Come be held by your wise higher self in a community of people who are in this life to heal. Don’t miss this (life). You deserve to be here. You deserve to thrive.
This workshop is lovingly open to all genders. Bring your wise body (of course!), your curiosity, a pen and notebook, wear comfortable clothing and, if you would like to, bring an eye pillow or cover.
Please note: Breathwork stirs up deep emotional experiences with the intention of easing your load but it can also be a lot to navigate. It is my deep desire to create a space that feels nurturing and supportive.
Accessibility Notes: Space has an ADA front entrance and bathroom with a single all-gender bathroom. There are no steps into the space. There is a lingering scent of incense from previous classes and is organic chemical free incense is used in my workshop.
