Palm Springs Breathwork & Meditation
Breathwork is primarily a healing modality and also provides a means of direct experience of what is reached for in meditation. As we open to breath, we call forward guidance, intuittion, support, deeper wisdom, and the gentle flow of life. This circle is perfect for those trying breathwork for the first time and for those with experience. The technique and philosophy of breathwork will be explored. Each individual will be supported to work with whatever is present for them, using it as a doorway to a deepened experience of 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 for you to land and explore. Please come and invite your friends.

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 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:
• 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
