Within many languages, including Amazonian Quechua, Tibetan, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, Hawaiian, and others, the word for “breath” is the same word that is used to describe life, spirit, and soul.
Physiologically breathing is an involuntary process. Most of us breathe about 12 to 20 times per minute. It is one of the basic foundations of life. But spiritually speaking, your breath is one of the natural mechanisms within you that can move you into deeper spiritual states of awareness.
In this breath journey, you will be led through a deeply transformative circular breathing exercise combined with powerful music, drums, and sound bowls. Most people describe their experience in a breath journey as life-changing.
Breathwork itself has been used for thousands of years for many reasons. Here are just a few:
– To access healing and insight
– To expand consciousness
– To release stress or anxiety
– To re-energize the body
– To gain clarity and vision
To be clear this breath journey has a totally different purpose than the Wim Hof Method which is designed more towards physical endurance, boosting the immune system, etc and you have to be willing to take cold baths.
The breathwork we will be doing has its roots in amazonian and Tibetian yoga traditions and is designed to connect you with your inner intelligence, get insights into your life, and release energetic body blocks.
This breath journey is focused on bringing you to an expanded state of awareness where the mind chatter subsides and you embrace the divine guidance that already exists within you. Keep in mind that during the process, it’s common for you to experience a wide spectrum of feelings. Such sensations can include deep relaxation, joy, serenity, sleep or meditative states, and possibly the release of past trauma. Even past life experiences have been reported too.
This practice is similar in many ways to The Rebirthing Method from Leonard Ore, and Holotropic Breathwork, which was brought forward by Stanislov Grof. Both of these modern methods have origins in ancestral wisdom traditions that we utilize.
This type of breathwork should be avoided by anyone with a history of the following: cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, glaucoma, retinal detachment, aneurysms, significant recent physical injuries, or surgery. Pregnant women should avoid this type of breathwork as well.
We recommend you avoid eating a large meal at least 90 minutes before we begin. Wear comfortable clothing and you may bring a pillow, blanket, and yoga mat. These are provided but in limited supply. Also if possible keep your night free so that you can take time after to journal your experience and do self-care.
Date: The First Sunday of Every Month.

"Thank you Holly and Mike, for the most awesome amazing Meditation I have ever experienced! Your Breath Journey is nothing like any other meditations out there! It was so unexpected, it’s hard to put into words. I am looking forward to the next one!"
"I have been attending the Body of Light workshops and Breath Journey meditations for several years now. Experiencing the meditations and learning about the power of breath has really opened my consciousness and allowed me to grow and heal myself in ways I never thought possible! As I’ve discovered my own spirituality, I have learned the vital connection between our body, mind and soul, and have learned how to strengthen that connection within my own being. Through Holly’s divine guidance, I’ve learned how to tap into my own divine power and purpose. Holly is pure love and light, and so full of spiritual knowledge. She is gentle and kind and creates a safe environment for all to come and discover their higher selves."
“My first experience with energy work was with Holly. I had no idea what to expect and was nervous but instantly Holly made it clear she cared about me and that I was in a safe, loving place. Holly was professional, patient, and sincere. She helped me work through the emotional difficulties I was having during my divorce and taught me how to be an even better version of myself. I left feeling so open and light, ready to move on to the next phase of life. I’m very grateful I stepped out of my comfort zone as it ended up bringing me so much peace and hope.”
