Conscious Breathwork & Traditional Tantric Teachings merge, bringing you home into Being.
A workshop by Jean Rossouw (Bodhi Breathwork) & Suskia Strafella (I am Wildwoman)
More on Conscious Breathwork
This Conscious Breathwork experience is ideal for first timers or experienced breathers. We will start with a short introduction, followed by a calming breath awareness practice, then we will engage in the technique of Conscious Connected Breathing.
Conscious Connected Breathing is a method of breath control that gives rise to expanded states of consciousness and has an effect on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as we activate the body’s inner healing intelligence.
The journey will be guided by carefully curated music and the intelligence of your own circular, connected breath. This combination allows you to move into a heart space while accessing expanded states of consciousness. The process brings more energy and awareness into the body as the breather experiences a vibrational shift which releases suppressed energy, emotions, stress and trauma. This journey activates both unconscious discomfort and ecstatic bliss as the intelligence of Life Force energy (Prana/Qi) leads us to exactly where we need to awaken and let go.
The process allows one to:
- become aware of self-limiting habits
- open to the capacity for self-healing
- re-pattern dysfunctional breathing patterns
- shift thoughts and feelings around the unknown
- examine limiting beliefs and emotional addictions
- resolve and bring awareness to unhealthy patterns and conditioning
- experience states of pure, unconditional love, acceptance and bliss
During the session you will have the opportunity to access your own internal healing energy and greater knowing in a safe and held space, allowing for a powerful shift in yourself and your life.
After the session you will have time to gently come back to your normal state of being, while enjoying a nourishing cup of tea. There will be time for questions and sharing your experience with other participants if you prefer. Follow-up support and integration tips will be emailed to participants.
More on Tantra
Tantra means the essence.
The essence of you. The essence of reality. This is the essential teaching connecting us back to our true nature.
Every inquiry around sexuality, wanting to explore freedom within the body, yogic work, breathwork, any of these inquiries lead us back to the ultimate questioning of who we truly are. At our core, who are we? Why are we here?
To inquire Tantra means to inquire about your longing to meet your truth and the truth of your reality. It means to drop into the cosmic ocean of endless possibility within yourself through wild abandon, to enter into the places you’ve been afraid to enter into before now. It means we go beyond the limitations of our minds and belief systems.
It means to crack open our hearts so that we may remember the texture of love and true intimacy which is our natural state of Being. It is not a state we have to search for or inquire about, it is the very reason we are here. To experience the world through a state of love.
You will feel the quality of this truth inside your own body – The instrument of the cosmos because the ultimate experience is to be so deeply imbibed and integrated within each of our bodily senses so that we may experience and express the fullness of all that we are capable of.
In Tantra, we do not deny the body and all its sensations. We learn to move with it, to move with spontaneity and a relaxed attitude towards life. During this session together, we will be moving through ancient Traditional techniques that have been passed down through the lineage of Kashmiri Shaivism.
