On Hallowe’en, it is said that the veils between this world and the underworld, or world of the dead, are thinnest. It is thus encouraged to communicate with your ancestors for healing, vision and guidance. It is also a potent day to allow old stories and habits die away, amplified by the Full Moon in Taurus. We’ll be working on both in this special Hallowe’en 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. Everyone will get a replay link following the event.
