Breathwork Circle: Inspiration & Desire
Saturday January 13th, 4:00 - 6:45 pm with Laura Fuller & Sudha Putnam, assisted by Cesar Ortiz. 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.
Let's start the year with inspiration and breathe in new life. Underneath any goals or plans for the coming year is a belief in a whole new beginning. We will use the breath to open to possibility and let in new life and energy. We will shed the old, raise our understanding of deservedness, and align to the truth of our heart's desires. Reclaim the sacredness of personal desire and know how your aliveness contributes to a larger good. Listen deeply to your intuition, open to guidance, and release whatever stands in the way. Spoken or unspoken, we will hold each other's personal wishes as well as shared intentions for the good of all.
$30 in advance, $40 the day of, or by donation. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. To enroll: visit themovingjoint.com, click "schedule" and then click the "workshop" tab on the upper right.
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. Whether you come with something in particular to heal or are drawn forward by a curiosity 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.
