PRIMORDIAL BREATHWORK JOURNEY w/ CEREMONIAL CACAO
Saturday, December 3rd
This Primordial Breathwork™ workshop is inspired by ancestral Amazonian and Tibetan lineages. This circle will have a maximum of 28 participants.
This multidimensional practice rekindles your original connection with the essence of vitality by awakening inherently natural, higher vibrational frequencies of your organism. The practice can also aid in the intuitive location and elimination of psychosomatic sources of disease, tensions, inhibitions and repressed emotions. Ancient, cathartic and healing breath patterns are applied throughout the ceremony, activating and purifying your embodied memory at the cellular level.
Though this practice is somewhat similar to more recently developed methods, (including the Rebirthing Breathwork, by Leonard Ore, and Holotropic Breathwork, by Stanislav Grof.) Primordial Breathwork™ is rooted in living inter-generational wisdom, reﬂected in both Tibetan and Amazonian cultures. These lineages serve as a conduit of experiential insight into the nature of existence. A unique and distinct aspect of this practice is group synchronization of the breath via: Awareness, Sound, Drumbeat and Rhythm, which with cumulative practice reveals the pulse of life force in nature to be an infinitely diverse and uniﬁed consciousness.
The cosmology and the theoretical background of this practice relates to the hero’s conscious journey home towards the original “primordial” state of unconditional presence. In Tibetan and Amazonian cultures, this primordial state is a most vital evolutionary portal to an infinite source of creative life force. This experiential practice cultivates a deeply restful state, allowing life force to flow and be expressed more freely.
An optional and complementary ceremonial cacao drink is offered at the event. Cacao is an ancient Amazonian plant spirit invoked to awaken one’s total being (gut, heart, head, higher, entire) that opens the possibility of personal transformation, and living in ever expansive heart-centered awareness.
Pre-registration is required, as space is limited.
