Breathwork Circle: Inner Light
December 9th, 4:00 - 6:45 pm with Laura Fuller at The Moving Joint in West Los Angeles
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.
As we approach the longest nights of the year, let's turn towards the inner light. It is traditional in this time of year to gather together and warm our hearts. We will embrace the darkness as a generative space, and learn that we do not need to fabricate the light. The holidays of this season all focus on an impossible light. This circle will focus on remembering and honoring the light within that has brought you through this far and continues to call you forward.
Led by Laura Fuller, M.A., C.Ht.

Breathwork is primarily a healing modality but also provides a means of direct experience of what is reached for in meditation. This circle is perfect for those trying breathwork for the first time and for those with experience. Each individual will be supported to work with what is arising for them and find the light that they will bring back into meditation. Whether you come with something in particular to heal or are drawn forward by a curiosity of for the mysteries of self and reality, this will be a sweet space to explore. Please come and invite your friends.
The term "Breathwork" refers to the technique of the "consciously connected breath." There are many forms and styles and this one 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:
