Soft Body, Soft Heart Breathwork

WHEN:  Saturday, February 9th from 3:00-5:00pm

WHERE:  Communion by Joy Studio

6144 Washington Blvd. Culver City 90232

COST:  $44

*please bring a yoga mat and a blanket. some sections of the floor are cement and some are carpet so bring the padding you need to be supported.

Some of the most tender hearts I know have had to develop invisible armor over the years, manifesting as chronic patterns of tension in their bodies.  We often hold protection and hyper vigilance in our jaws & neck, front and back of the heart, inner thighs and pelvic floor.  This can be for so many reasons-unprocessed emotions, grief, loss, heartbreak, not feeling safe to be heard or take up space, rejection, fear, any kind of abuse, body violation, surgery, illness, or past life trauma.  

 

As I have worked to set my own body free of the past and allow it to catch up to what is happening NOW, I have realized how Soft my true essence is. I have felt how effortful and taxing it is to always be bracing for the next thing and carrying a heavy shield. 

 

When we allow our bodies to soften in sacred space, within like hearted community, we can begin to reprogram the nervous system into safety.  Our bodies can become the safest space we know and we can claim them for ourselves as places of gentleness, non-violence and freedom.  

 

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to purge the body of stuck emotional energy.  It facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and sadness. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

 

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression and anxiety, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love.  It is a self-healing practice that has changed lives and is an efficient and effective way to emotionally detox.

 

You will leave lighter and brighter and it just might change your life.

Desert Healing Retreat - Joshua Tree 5/10-13/2019

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 6.30.46 PM.png

Joshua Tree has been a place of pilgrimage, profound healing, clarity and magic for me for many years.  It is the wild west, the moon and the bottom of the ocean.  This desert vortex will ask you to dig deep but will hold you through any waves you need to ride to get to the next destination in your curriculum.  

The Cactus Moon in Yucca Valley is a gorgeous, quiet, spacious retreat property with comfy, beautifully decorated rooms, lots of light, many indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out, and a lovely pool.

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 6.35.16 PM.png


To believe that we can really be effective in life-that we can take risks and create and share more of ourselves, we have to dissolve the structures that say we can’t. Reprogramming our hearts, minds and spirits with self love, self trust, and self authority allows us to be the kind of solid people that can lead, teach, activate and inspire.

We accelerate our healing process when we do it in community. We can go farther together than we can alone. In our evolutionary spiral, we return to our edges with greater consciousness, more tools, and greater awareness to go deeper. The specific retreat itinerary will take shape by the group that is magnetized to this land and wants to assemble for this healing retreat.  I find that each group I work with has its own personality and there are always themes that show up.  We will use personal inquiry, Breathwork, writing prompts, sound, movement and connecting with Spirit and the Earth to move forward.

We will have a morning and afternoon circle session in addition to:

Three group Breathwork healing sessions

A sound bath at the Integratron

One of my favorite Joshua Tree hikes!

Morning stretchy/chill yoga

An organic, Paleo-friendly menu designed and cooked for you by a functional nutritionist

Downtime for reading, writing, relaxing by the pool, and getting to know each other

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 6.31.12 PM.png

This healing retreat will support you in smoothing the rough edges in any lifetime patterns that are ready to move.  This is a coed retreat, open to all genders.  There is space for 12 onsite and 10 offsite.  

RATES:

Shared room twin bed - $800

Shared room full size bed - $850

Private room full size bed - $900

Retreat rate if you stay offsite & find your own accommodations - $650 (feel free to email me for suggestions)

*REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 4PM PST ON 1/20/19.  IF YOU SIGN UP AFTER 4PM, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE RECORDING WHEN THE GROUP IS OVER BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND LIVE.

We'll be breathing into the second eclipse of the year, a Full Super Moon Eclipse in Leo-working with the energies of self love, self acceptance, self celebration, radiance, pleasure, and joy.  Leo is ruled by the Sun and when it shines bright, it can illuminate our shadows.  We will use the breath as sacred hygiene, to clear out what obscures our divinity and keeps us away from our most evolved expression.  

The power of breathing together in a group amplifies the sacred container of support as we all contribute our open hearted, light seeking energies to the mix.  You add to the collective when you show up in community to heal.  It is an opportunity to cleanse the emotional body of any residue that has built up or gotten stuck in your physical self or your belief system.

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to purge the body of emotional gunk. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.  I’ll coach you through the experience with love…all set to a cosmic soundtrack.

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love.  It is a self-healing practice that has changed my life and is an efficient and effective way to emotionally detox.

You will only need Zoom (free) to participate in the group session.  A recording will be sent to you after the class to download and use as many times as you like.  Can’t wait to breathe with you!

*This virtual group will be from 5-6:15pm PDT on Sunday, December 16, 2018. 

*please note all times are in PDT

*You will receive all of the healing benefits of the group even if you are not able to attend live.  

*a recording will be sent to you after the class

*instructions and the link to join the group will be emailed to you by 3pmPDT on 12/16/18*

*REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 4PM PDT ON 12/16/18.  IF YOU SIGN UP AFTER 4PM, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE RECORDING WHEN THE GROUP IS OVER BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND LIVE.

Many of us start to feel a low hum of increasing anxiety as the holidays approach.  Family dynamics, old wounds, unspoken grievances, old beef between people, roles you don’t want to play anymore but feel powerless to break, addiction or abuse patterns, etc. can bring up fear, sadness, and nervousness about what might happen this time.  You may feel emotionally armored in advance because your family’s politics or values are much different than yours and that can create conflict or confrontation.  Your choices with your body, how you feed yourself, your sexual orientation, politics, job or partner choices might feel under attack. You might even emotionally feel a regression to an earlier age when you feel less powerful and grounded as you approach “home.” 

In this Breathwork, we will work with the inner child within who wants love, approval, validation, affection and attention and allow our adult selves to provide those needs in advance. You’ll have a safe space to not be in the holiday spirit and vent out all the advance worries about being with your family.  We’ll release any emotional buildup so that you can feel grounded, clear and remember that you are a grownup that is allowed to have boundaries.  You’ll also have the recording to use if you need to Stop, Drop & Breathe over the holidays.  This will be a gift to yourself of safe space that you create before the storm.

The breath is a high form of technology for self-healing. The breath can help you to stay grounded, stay in your heart and stay present. 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 purge the body of emotional gunk. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

11/11 Gateway

“This day resonates with the power and personality of the number 1, the foundational number in Numerology from which all other numbers are made. The number 1 represents creation and possibility, and also an unobstructed channel of energy that can act as a direct conduit between the physical and spiritual planes.

When the number 1 is doubled to 11, it becomes one of the master numbers in Numerology which symbolizes the potential to push the limitation of human experience and embrace higher spiritual perception. It represents the link between mortal and immortal; human and spiritual; darkness and light.”

~ Jenny Schlitz

11/11 is a day that magnifies intentions, delivering our desires to the cosmos like lightning rods.  We will offer our intentions for our personal healing and expansion as purification and cleansing for our world. 

The breath is a high form of technology for self-healing. The breath can help you to stay grounded, stay in your heart and stay present. 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 purge the body of emotional gunk. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love.  It is a self-healing practice that has changed my life and is an efficient and effective way to emotionally detox.

"The Equinox is always a great time to RESET and to honor endings so that you can make room for new beginnings. The endings or completions are especially important during this season and especially in light of changes that may be occurring in your life. Acknowledge the changes and honor the endings that are coming about because of them."

~ Lena Stevens of the Power Path

Fall is the time of year where we prepare for turning inward, breathing and taking in what is of value and eliminating that which no longer serves us. 

The Fall Equinox is a day of equal light and dark.  When we are in a rhythm with nature, we are at our most healthy.  The Lungs are the organ of Fall and help us receive (inspiration) and let go (expiration) from moment to moment.  This Breathwork allows you to let go of what you don’t need to create space for renewal and fresh insight.  

This Harvest Moon is a time for gratitude and celebration around what you have created in your life.  This is a culmination point of the month where something will come to a head that is ready to be transformed.  Every ending contains the seed of a beginning.  Breathing into the truth and our hidden emotions helps us become embodied and whole!  

The power of breathing together in a group amplifies the sacred container of support as we all contribute our open hearted, light seeking energies to the mix.  You add to the collective when you show up in community to heal.

"This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (and this entire eclipse corridor) offers us an opportunity to step away from the light, and allow ourselves to find rest and nourishment in the darkness. This time invites us to lay down our mental and emotional weapons. To take a break from the chaos. To press pause. To soften and release. To remember that we do not have to figure it all out right now. To remember that we are always, always, already whole, perfect, and free-but we have to allow ourselves to feel it."

~ Sarah Gottessdiener from her Many Moons workbook

The Full Moon illuminates what is or isn’t working in our lives.  This is a culmination point of the month where something will come to a head that is ready to be transformed.  Every ending contains the seed of a beginning.  Breathing into the truth and our hidden emotions helps us become embodied and whole!

"At this New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse, both the Sun and the Moon are in the astrological sign of Cancer.  Cancer correlates with emotional mastery and psychic ability, with caring and creativity. The sign of Cancer correlates to the mother archetype, the home, and our homecomings: psychic, metaphorical or literal. The archetype of Cancer is exalted when they are able to identify their emotions and worth with them constructively. When their psychic abilities and sensitivities are able to be manifested in the spirt of service and healing, the archetype of the Cancer is empowered.  Themes of this eclipse may be feelings and how we feel them, nurturing and how we allow ourselves to be nurtured.  We may be rethinking our care, and the care of the collective.  
Can we allow this eclipse to open us up to transforming our feelings into healings?  Can we find ways to work more deftly with our emotions, not be flooded by them?  Can we allow emotions to give us more information about what to let go of and what to hold holy?"

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to purge the body of emotional gunk. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief.  It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.                     

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love.  It is a self-healing practice that has changed my life and is an efficient and effective way to emotionally detox.  

We’ll start with a sacred circle and then move to the breathing! I will apply essential oils to get your energy centers spinning, burn holy wood and sage to transform your emotional release, coach you through the experience with love…all set to a cosmic soundtrack.

You will leave lighter and brighter and it just might change your life.  Please bring an eye cover if you like.

"Welcome to the April New Moon!  If you are in the northern hemisphere, Spring is a time of rebirth.  We begin to see movement that was seemingly paused during the cooler months.  The leaves and flowers begin to show their beauty.  The days are getting longer.  Take a moment to pause and notice all that happening around you.  Give yourself a boost of love for arriving here today.  Now give yourself another boost for moving through another retrograde.  Today we welcome a New Moon in Aries and Mercury also goes direct.  Open your eyes a little wider, love.  Take a deep stretch, raising your fingertips toward the cosmos, inhale...exhale, and shake it out.  The fog has cleared and you are still standing.  The energy has opened and aligned for us.  Today, give yourself permission to begin, or begin again."

~ Monique McCrystal from the Many Moons book by Sarah Gottesdiener

COST:  $45 

Join myself and Victoria Keen for a breathwork and sound healing experience.  Nurture and cleanse your emotional body with Breathwork followed by a deeply immersive and meditative journey into sound.

Breathwork is an active self-healing meditation technique that uses the breath to emotionally detox the body. The experience moves stuck energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, less burdened and with a great natural high.

Everything including our own selves is in a state of constant vibration. Sound has been used since ancient times as a healing tool to promote deep relaxation and wellbeing, ease pain, and increase energy levels in the body. Victoria will play the Gong, crystal singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks and other instruments for an experiential evening of harmonious and consciousness expanding Sound.  It is her pleasure to offer this restorative meditation to the community in these intense times, offering a portal into stillness, peace, and liberation from the incessant chatter of the mind.

A limited number of rental mats are available for a $2 fee.  Please do bring your own mat if you have one AND a blanket & pillow to make sure you are comfortable for the sound bath.

New Moon Breathwork - Santa Fe, NM

New Moon Breathwork 

WHEN:  Saturday, February 17th from 4-6pm MST

WHERE:  private home in Santa Fe

COST:  $35

 

“Healing ourselves is an act of community.  We cannot become whole in isolation.  What threatens the world is continuously damaging us; to heal the damage we must resist the destruction; to resist the destruction we must create the situations, the community in which we can be healed.”

~ Starhawk

 

This will be a very special and intimate healing group.  We will be gathering at the home of artist and vibrational energy healer Taryn Slawson.

The Aquarian New Moon asks us, “what needs healing within me so I can share my work with the world?”  We all have gifts that the world needs, especially at this time in our evolution.  We are stronger together and can upgrade our energetic frequency and our willingness to dissolve fear of being seen and taking up more space when we breathe together. 

Since this will be at a private home, you will receive the address after you purchase your ticket.  Please bring a yoga mat and a blanket or two.  You can bring an object or two for our collective altar (a piece of jewelry, a crystal, a candle, or any other meaningful object) that you would like to charge with the healing energy we create in this group.

The breath is a high form of technology for self-healing. The breath can help you to stay grounded, stay in your heart and stay present. 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 purge the body of emotional gunk. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger and grief. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

I will apply essential oils to get your energy centers spinning, burn holy wood and sage to transform your emotional release, coach you through the experience with love…all set to a cosmic soundtrack.

SuperPowered Empath-how to thrive with your gift *live virtual webinar*

When I was growing up, I was the designated “feeler” and emotional release valve for my family.  Whatever they were not willing or open to feel was filtered through my high sensitivity.  I often felt “crazy” as emotions would course through me that weren’t my own and I was unable to distinguish which were mine and which belonged to my family and friends.  Feeling other people’s feelings for them was just something that I did automatically without realizing it.    I thought that was what everybody did and it felt like one of the most intimate ways to connect with someone.  Even though I loved that I had this ability to connect deeply with people; it still took a toll on me because I couldn’t regulate it or turn it off.  Much later in life, I discovered that I was a highly sensitive empath.  I learned tools to clear and manage my energy when I was holding space for individuals or big groups.  It’s helped me feel really strong and capable in my career.  I actually get really high on group energy now and it makes healing work really fun! 

 

This class is primarily geared toward healers of any kind that work one on one with clients or with groups but would benefit anyone who is looking for ways to keep their energy clear around other humans. 

 

Highlights of the class include:

- How being on empath auto-pilot originated as a protective intuitive tool but can become a liability in your adult life

- My favorite tool for being able to distinguish your energy from other people’s energy

- How to create a strong container for your work so you are able to see multiple clients and work with big groups without getting sick or depleted

- Being energetically offensive and building your energetic immune system vs. being energetically defensive & protecting yourself

- Using your personal energy vs. calling in divine assistance

- How learning to receive and exchange with clients is part of the process of filling back up after giving

- Energetic tools you can use to prepare yourself before a day of clients or a healing group (these same tools can be used before any event where there is concern about meshing with other’s energies, ex. visiting family)

- A live Q&A with me

- A short Breathwork healing session which will allow you to deeply integrate all of the information in the class + give you an opportunity to physically experience what your unique energetic imprint feels like

This class is for you if:

You feel restricted in growing your practice or expanding because you get really tired or sick after working with a lot of clients or a group.

You get very affected by other people’s energy and want tools to be able to keep your energy clear.

This class will meet on Saturday February 3rd and Sunday February 4th, 2018 from 10-6pm.

I have been studying with David Elliott for four years-facilitating one on one sessions and leading monthly Breathwork circles for four years.  I credit this work with deepening my connection with my intuition and creativity, healing my relationship with myself, and finding new levels of purpose, passion and faith in my life.
