If you are looking for a way to break into those hidden areas of yourself, this is the class for you. This class includes Shamanic Breathwork, which is a safe and powerful process that helps one reconnect to your own innate wisdom and your inner healer- shaman.
Discover filters that may have been obscuring your true self and dive deep into the safe container of the journey to heal and transform into a healthier, more connected, and truer you. This sacred process includes initial discussion/teachings, a cyclical breathing technique, chakra-attuned music, artwork and group processing to establish a safe container for deep inner healing.
During these classes, we will meet in a large room so we are able to spread 6' apart. You will be laying on the floor for the Shamanic Breathwork and it is recommended you bring something comfortable to lay on, and also a blanket and pillow for extra comfort. An eye mask, bottle of water, and comfortable clothing are also recommended.

What is Shamanic Breathwork? (This description is credited to Linda Star Wolf and shamanicbreathwork.org)
The Shamanic Breathwork is aimed at awakening the inner Shamanic Healer in persons undergoing the Breathwork process. There is ample support from Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators and co-journeyers to assist during the session to enable a safe journey for the participant.
The process begins by establishing sacred space through various rituals and ceremonies such as smudging with sage, cedar and sweet grass while offering prayerful invocations. Individuals lie down and focus on surrendering to the healer (Shaman) within, calling upon that which is most sacred and holy to them, such as guides, power animals and higher power. The drumming then begins which leads into a powerful musical journey varying in length from one to two hours. As the individual uses the power of deep connected breathing to create a natural altered dreamlike state, the Ego defenses are released and the journey unfolds in a variety of ways.
Each person’s shamanic journey is a highly individualized process and no two are ever the same. Some of the states of consciousness reported range from divine, otherworldly bliss states to the struggle to be released from negative forces in the psyche. Rebirthing is a common occurrence, as is the life review where one relives or observes their lifetime experiences. Old patterns of dysfunction may be brought to the surface. Addictions are sometimes healed during this process, as feelings such as grief, fear, rage and anxiety are released.
The Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators have undergone this process many times in the course of their training and are loving guides for the participant’s journey. The process may require the Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator’s skills and attention; a variety of psycho-spiritual tools may be employed to assist the participant. Some of the most commonly used methods are bodywork, Reiki (energy work), Soul Return and extractions.
The most powerful healing tool our facilitators bring to the person breathing is their open and loving hearts and minds, with a willingness to support and travel with the journeyer wherever they may need to go. This is the essence of what Shamanic Breathwork is all about. Describing the process really does not do it justice. One must experience this powerful shamanic journey and it’s healing from the inside out.
