About the event
Connect to your heart and expand your awareness with the power of Cosmic Breath!
Different breathwork techniques have different effects on the mind/body/spirit of the practitioner utilizing them. Cosmic breath is gentler on the nervous system, yet still a potent form of breathwork that can result in vital physiological changes - some appearing immediately, and some over time with consistent practice. This breathwork style is not as activating as other styles (Wim Hof, Psychedelic, Holotropic) yet still creates expansion in the energy body and a deeply personal, intimate inward experience.
Benefits you may experience with Cosmic Breath:
- Vagus nerve stimulation/activation
- Increase in vagal tone
- Oxygenates mitochondria that improve immune cell regulation
- Greater immune system function
- Balances alkalinity in the body
- Improves heart rate variability (HRV)
- Elicits the relaxation response (almost immediately)
- Reduction in inflammation
- Reduces arousal level of the sympathetic nervous system
- Increased clarity and creativity
- Unlocking of inner wisdom
- Stress relief
- Release of stored emotion/tension
- Mystical experiences
Both new and seasoned participants will experience the profundity of this simple, yet powerful style of breathing that can create bodily sensations, produce images and visions in the mind’s eye, emotions, and memories. You’ll be held in a safe, intimate container to explore your own unique experience with the breath. Silent Disco headphones are utilized to completely block out any external disturbances and keep you rooted firmly in the moment.
Other techniques utilized during this experience include:
- Pineal gland breathing to activate kundalini energy (and get cerebrospinal fluid flowing to enhance the cosmic breath experience)
- Static breathholds to encourage energy flow up to the brain (short, safe and accessible - more information and guidance shared during session)
You’re invited to come with a specific intention for your journey, whether that’s to gain clarity on a confusing life situation, release a limiting belief, call in a certain energy, or even just for the breath to show you what you’re missing. The playlist will support an emotive experience, curated intentionally to keep you engaged with the breath.
Come experience a short reprieve from the mundane, and explore the vast landscape of your inner world with a Sunday morning breathwork journey! ***Space is limited to 10 participants.
