Life is Breath & Breath is Life
The Breath of Life is a powerful breathwork process derived from yoga tradition and adapted by Michael Hayman. The intention and invitation is to let go of pain, trauma and fear and to call in peace, empowerment, bliss and freedom.
The Breath of Life process draws from Pranayama and highly oxygenates the body, activating both the vagus nerve and pineal gland and transmuting energy in an empowering dynamic process. We begin with a style of fire breathing which fully awakens us, flooding oxygen deep into each cell of the body. The lungs expand fully, opening the heart space and pulling energy up into the brain like an ecstatic wave. A breath retention harmonises the sympathetic with parasympathetic and the following phase invites deep relaxation, allowing mental, emotional and physical release. Participants can experience very deep levels of release combined with profound self-awareness and a sense of inner peace often found accompanying psychedelic or transcendental experiences.
The process is simple, done lying down and suitable for everyone (we suggest over 16 years) of all ages, levels of fitness etc.
We’ll begin the evening with a sacred cacao ceremony, embracing this wonder filled plant medicine to blossom our hearts with the vibration of love and life. Cacao has long been used in ceremony to help initiate conscious reconnection with our hearts. Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with feelings of wellbeing, happiness, bliss and ecstasy. Our ceremonial cacao drink (raw organic sugar/dairy/gluten/nut free) is the perfect complement to the Breath of Life experience. We also add maca to our cacao elixir to stimulate our endocannabinoid receptors to bring added bliss.
Come along for this evening’s journey to celebrate your life, lift your spirits, feel radically alive and breathe yourself free.
