Breathwork is a powerful modality for healing that is gentle and accessible to all physical abilities. Each gathering will have a different theme, helping you come more fully alive in the new year. The technique of the breathwork will also be taught, so new people are welcome to join at any time. You may want to plan to come each month to recharge and build connections. Whatever your goals and desires, this monthly group provides support for you to stay focused and clear out any old patterns that are in the way. Fresh juice will be sold before the circle, so please come a little early for some juice and let yourself be nourished in all ways.
Thursday April 12th 6:30 - 8:00 pm*
Peace & Release
To get to a place of relaxation and peace, we must listen to what is going on beneath the surface. When we create time and space to do this, it becomes clear that these stirrings from within are not only the details of life, but are also clues towards transformation and growth. We may know that we are stressed, tense, or tired, we may know that something is getting to us, but we may not know why. In this circle, breathwork will be used to make contact with what is going on beneath the surface and open to what needs to be known. We will use the breath as a blessing to everyone and everything that happened in the past, freeing you to move forward.
• A mat to lie down on
• A blanket
• Money for juice and donation (juice will be sold at regular prices)
*Please arrive by 6:15 to settle in and order juice or food.
No pre-enrollment required, but please do RSVP to Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can. You can use the Facebook event page to "invite" your friends. Since this is a community event and by donation, your help is greatly appreciated.
More about the breath:
The breath is oxygen. However, mixed with our intention, it is also life, light, and love. Just as oxygen is essential to our cells, the experience of life flowing is yearned for by our spirit. Breathwork allows us to heal our most fundamental relationships: our relationships to ourselves, the universe, god, and life itself.
The term "Breathwork" refers to the technique of the "consciously connected breath." There are many forms and styles and Clarity Breathwork uses it in a very gentle way. It is not the usual pranayamas, nor a way to breathe in daily life, but a means to release blockages so that all other ways of breathing will become more natural. This form of breath evokes a non-ordinary state of consciousness that facilitates healing. This can happen through the experience of bliss, through emotional release, insight, or expanded awareness. This gentle form emphasizes your ability to welcome everything that arises. Learning this capacity of the heart is the true nectar.
Clarity Breathwork is a form that is gentle, safe, and also extremely powerful. It encourages us to practice self-love and welcome all that arises so that it can heal. It releases stress and toxins from the body, and limitations from our energy and mind. It takes us all the way back to our first breath, putting us in contact with the sacred tasks of this life. Breathwork is a beautiful way to heal and deepen your meditaiton and spiritual practice. It is also wonderful to connect with community in this way. Please bring your friends. Beginners are welcome.
This technique is powerful physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Benefits of Clarity Breathwork include:
• Releases stress and increases energy, aliveness and sense of well-being
•Releases toxins from the cells of the body: 70% of toxins are released through the breath, so when you breath more, you release more
• Allows old emotions, memories and past traumas to arise and release in a safe, gentle way.
• Access and transforn the source of dis-ease by understanding the underlying resonances
• Understand relationship issues by embracing and healing old wounds of abandonment, rejection and loss
• Access expanded states of consciousness, including higher guidance and clarity about one's path and purpose
• Heals the wound of imagined separation
• Increases the experience of peace and surrender
• Allows a feeling of being connected to–and caring for–yourself, the earth, the universe, and all beings
• Transcends the mind and emotions and supports the awakening to the truth of who you really are
