A wonderful, insightful workshop into breathing practices from many cultures of the world, this workshop is open to all practitioners and those who would like to understand how the breath can unite the mind and body. Workshop attendees will practice breath control methods as well as discuss related topics in small groups.
Along with learning and practicing an array of breathing exercises, we will also approach the breathwork from an energy healing perspective. First, after watching a demonstration of the essential breathing practice, we will discuss its physical and energetic effect. Then, we will practice with our own breath, fully observing ourselves and any change in our experience.Traditions include breathing practices from yoga, qi gong, Buddhist meditation, ancient Judaic and Christian religions, Japanese Aikido, Islamic Sufism and shamanic healing.
