Well Aware Podcast, Episode 43: Erin Telford on Breathwork, Boundaries, and Being Enough


In this episode of the Well Aware podcast, I sit with Lindsay Mueller for a beautifully honest and heart opening conversation. Lindsay and I have quite a few friends in common, and it was such a joy to join her on her podcast.  I share a lot about my favorite application for Breathwork, working with the breath and the body as corrective medicine for childhood trauma.

This episode is for anyone: 

  • Interested in breathwork as a practice and/or a career path.

  • Yearning for a career change but is feeling weighed down by debt and/or years spent learning something else.

  • Wanting to learn how to increase their self-confidence and self-respect.

  • Learning to observe their inner critic(s).

  • Working on setting boundaries.

We discuss: 

  • How I went from being an acupuncturist to a breathwork teacher, despite having $250,000 in student debt.

  • Why I went all-in on breathwork, of all healing modalities.

  • How breathwork allows healing through self-resourcing, versus other modalities that outsource healing.

  • Active versus passive healing.

  • My teacher David Elliott and his breathwork method

  • What you can expect physically, emotionally, and mentally during one of my breathwork sessions.

  • What happened during the exact moment on October 22, 2016, when I realized I am enough.

  • Gaining clarity around boundaries and the inner process that yielded them.

  • How I holds myself through difficult experiences.

  • What happens when you drastically change the pace your life, inviting slowness and space.

  • Social media hygiene and how I hold energetic boundaries on Instagram to keep the experience fun.
