Breath as a Pathway to Presence: An Introductory Workshop to Healing Breath
This experiential workshop is designed to introduce both new and experienced participants to a powerful spiritual practice called Healing Breath. Within Scripture and the Christian Wisdom Tradition, breath has played a central role in spirituality and formation. The ancients have long observed the power within one’s breath to create healing and transformation in one’s life. Science is also showing how a consistent conscious connected breathing practice lowers stress, helps decrease depression and anxiety, and increases our heart rate variability. During our workshop, we will create a safe space for participants to experience the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of Healing Breath. We believe conscious connected breathing is a beautiful tool that opens us to our three centers of intelligence (body, heart, and mind) and helps us to unbrace long held tensions in the body.
This half-day workshop will be conducted through zoom. We will have a break out session for questions with a facilitator as well as smaller “breath groups” with a ratio of 5 breathers to 1 facilitator. We will allow a maximum of 20 participants.
