Shamanic Breathwork, February 17-18 in Woodstock, NY with Teresa Smith and Shakti Smith
A weekend workshop in the breath work style of Stanslav Grof
Come join us for a special weekend connecting breathwork and shamanic practice! In this workshop we’ll dive deep into our ecological, collective and individual subconscious through holotropic breathing as developed by Stan Grof and Christina Grof (long-formbreath assisted inner journeying in 3 hour sessions). To prepare for and integrate the breathwork sessions, we’ll practice shamani techniques from Siberian and South American lineages, connecting our breath to the earth’s breath, to the trees, and to the star’s light.
No experience with Breathwork or Shamanism needed, beginner’s mind encouraged! Hosted in a peaceful countryside home, with opportunities for shamanic work outside with the mountains, streams, trees. This will be a special time to connect with self and others in a safe and supportive environment.
What is Breathwork:
The basic components of Breathwork are intensified breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, expressive drawing, and group process. Participants may enter extra-ordinary, deep consciousness states during breathwork, vividly connecting to biographical material that lies below waking consciousness. They may relive experiences from birth, or connect with experiences of other people and the forms. Cathartic emotional release and archetypal, mythic and transcendent realms of consciousness are often experienced. Particular attention is paid to creating a safe space for individual and community healing and evolution.
