The breath is a high form of technology for self-healing. It can help you to stay grounded, present and in your heart. Breathwork is part catharsis, part socially sanctioned adult temper tantrum, part community building and part psychedelic experience.
Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to emotionally detox the body.
If you've never experienced breathwork, it goes like this: you show up in comfortable clothing, lay down, close your eyes and listen to the instructions. First, you breathe with an open mouth into the belly to stir the second chakra, oxygenate and breathe new life force into past experiences and limiting beliefs. Next, you draw the breath up to the heart to purify and wash these emotions with love. And finally, you breathe out of the mouth to release. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates the release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.
Breathwork just might change your life.
