On the Fall Equinox, the day is exactly equal to the night, mirroring the balance between light and shadow that we can find within ourselves in this cosmic window. At the same time, in the Northern Hemisphere the Fall Equinox is an opportunity to pause and prepare ourselves for the cooler seasons and turn inwards. We’ll find a space of internal equipoise and harvest the fruits of the summer in this special Fall Equinox Virtual Breathwork Ceremony.
Breathwork oxygenates the cells, opens the heart, releases stuck emotional energy and shifts your consciousness. Elemental Visioning, Joanna’s signature Breathwork modality, incorporates the energy of the four elements with guided imaginative journeying to expand your consciousness and gather deep somatic wisdom (read more about Breathwork‘s benefits on Joanna’s blog). Students have described Breathwork as “what heaven feels like” and “like twenty years of therapy without uttering a word.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: We’ll ground with some easy movement, intention-setting and meditation before lying down for an hourlong session with a specific breath pattern, using a custom playlist and imaginative guidance to deepen your experience throughout. We’ll spend a few minutes after practice journalling with a few questions to crystallize our practice, and then check-in as a group with sharing and discussion.
Breathwork is performed lying down, in comfortable clothing. A pencil and paper, and eye covering, are recommended. Headphones are optional.
20% of all proceeds will be donated to the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre / Multicultural Women Against Rape, a collective providing anti-oppressive, feminist peer support to survivors of sexual violence.
