Medicinal breathwork has been the second cornerstone of my health routine for the past 10 years. (My first cornerstone was turning to plant medicine, herbalism, and tea.) I first tried it was when I was 15 years old. I would hang out in the woods reading Herman Hesse and Jack Kerouac and meditate using techniques taught by my Chinese teacher. But it wasn’t until I almost completely destroyed my health that I got serious about it. Funny how many of us find ourselves in that boat.
”Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out." After saying these sentences, we can abbreviate them by saying "In" as we breathe in, and "Out" as we breathe out. We don't try to control our breathing. Whether our in-breath is long or short, deep or shallow, we just breathe naturally and shine the light of mindfulness on it.
Yes, I am now offering to facilitate a breathwork session for you in the comfort, security and safety of your own space. And it is so easy!
Using a web-based tool very similar to Skype called zoom I am able to facilitate a breathwork session right where you are. Zoom uses your computer or phone's camera, microphone and speaker to allow us to see, hear and talk to each other.
