"Master your breath, let the self be in bliss, contemplate on the sublime within you.” —Krishnamacharya

Join us for an evening of deep exploration and transformation using the healing power of the breath.

Breathwork is a simple yet profound method that integrates the latest insights from modern consciousness research with anthropology, western depth and transpersonal psychologies, and mystical traditions from around the world. By combining enhanced breathing practices with evocative music in a safe set and setting, participants are able to expand their consciousness to access states that allow us to reconnect with our essential nature. This work also stimulates the release of emotional and energetic blocks anchored within the body that have been preventing the healing process and causing many of the problems we face.
