Resilience breathwork is a practice for internal alchemy that is powerfully cathartic, energizing, activating and profound – through this practice we can safely and rapidly transform strong emotions and energies like trauma, grief, rage, disassociation, numbness, addiction, despair, and other common experiences of our times by bypassing the intellectual mind to work directly with the intelligence of our breath and bodies.
Working with the breath in this way moves immense amounts of energy and we’ll often experience sensations in our body, emotional clearing, and other forms of embodied activation and healing that can be profound and even life-changing. It is a practice that essentially clears any energetic gunk or build up in the body, allowing for more access into our embodied experience. We can also experience insight, ancestral connection, clarity and deeply restorative peace. come expecting to deepen and expand, to clear what no longer serves your well-being, and to conjure your innate wisdom and powers for healing, creativity, and thriving. I will be your experienced guide, holding a safe container for this important work while offering supportive energy medicine. Folks usually leave feeling less burdened and more connected to their heart and intuition.
This profound self-healing practice has helped me clear and transform illusions, internalized oppression and inherited & experienced trauma, while calling me back home to my heart, my body and my resilience. It is a practice that continues to help me open my voice and creativity, heal through injury, illness, and being a sensitive person in these times of great churning. It has brought me important insight for navigating my life while conjuring the great big LOVE that is the way forward. For me this is a fundamental tool for personal rewilding and re-embodiment that i am honored to bring into my communities and circles as we work to heal ourselves and do better as human earthlings.
Working with breath to expand and alter consciousness and heal our bodies is a practice found in many cultures around the world. This specific breathing pattern is one that has emerged specifically for these times. It was taught to me by the healer David Elliot, who received the breathing pattern through personal journey work and was one of a number of healers around the world who received the same pattern as a medicine practice that is needed for these times. as far as i know it is not specific to a tradition or culture, it has emerged for our collective healing at this juncture.
