Our Journey With Breath

 

Paul’s first whiff of Breathwork came over 40 years ago during his exploration of yoga through a book his father gave him called “Yoga for Americans.”

And then again over 20 years ago, at Clearmind International, he was introduced to “conscious connected breathing” as part of his training as a Transpersonal Therapist.

This breathing tool became popular about 50 years ago through the work of Stanislov Grof, one of the founders of the field of Transpersonal Psychology, who brought conscious connected breathing to the Western world from India after his work using LSD became illegal in the late 1960’s.  Grof called his method of Breathwork “Holotropic” and other names were found, by pioneers such as Leonard Orr, like “Rebirthing Breathwork”.

Whatever name is given to the simple yet profound practice of following your breath – consciously or “unconsciously’ – it remains one of the most transformative methods you can use to shift your state, reveal previously hidden thoughts and feelings, as well as make real and lasting transformation of the obvious.

Kathie came into Breathwork when she met Paul in 2006 and has taken this journey with him through “traditional” Breathwork as well as through Quantum Touch and Oneness, two of their primary healing modalities that use Breathwork with the  Chakras for energy clearing and cleansing, and for overall manifestation in a life.

We are delighted to be on this journey of Breathing Together for the good of all human kindness.

WHAT IS “CONSCIOUS” BREATHING?

Conscious breathing, or “Breathwork” is a method of intentionally connecting each breath, without pause, that helps you open to your Self, lengthening your reach for optimal physical and emotional connection, resulting in overall rise in wellness.

Connecting our breaths connects our physical existence to our spiritual existence – a multitude of emotions can find expression – and continuous breath “work” within a session can bring alchemy and a sense of coherence to all of it!  

WHAT DOES A BREATHWORK SESSION LOOK LIKE?

Breathwork is commonly done lying down for maximum safety, and to mimic a “cocooning” feel which deepens our sense of being alone, yet a safe container also helps you feel “a part of” – this creates a safe space that allows the body and mind to reach a state where it is easy to release emotional, as well as physical, toxins.

Please bring what you need to feel comfortable ~ this can be your yoga mat, a thicker mat for comfort laying down, a pillow, blanket, water bottle ~ anything you need to create a safe place to let go within.

Transpersonal Therapy…

Woven into our Breathwork are the principles of Transpersonal Therapy – unlike most forms of psychotherapy that concentrate on improving mental health, transpersonal therapy takes a more holistic approach, addressing mental, physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual needs, with an emphasis on the role of a healthy spirit in healing.

To facilitate healing and growth, transpersonal therapy places great emphasis on honesty, open-mindedness, and self-awareness on the part of the therapist as well as the client.  Psychology Today

ANAHATA

 

Anahata is a special form of breathwork that we lead inspired by a particular yogic style of breathing.  It is a  Guided Breathwork Meditation focusing on the 12-Chakra system using an ancient Indian style of Breathwork similar to Breath of Fire, or Kapalbhati Pranayam.

The soundscape of Anahata includes Solfeggio and Fibionacci sound technology, among many features of this curated meditation.

This process is a massive DIVE into your Self ~ with the Breath as your Guide.  Many are amazed at the power of this practice and report everything from feeling deep peace of mind to relief from physical discomforts.

Anahata Cacao Journeys are scheduled monthly, both online and in person.  Join our newsletter and reach out to us if you would like to join!
