Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork™ Journeys
March 25 one day workshop in Woodstock, NY
9am - 9pm $60-$75 (with optional overnight)
Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork (DTB) is practiced in a workshop format that promotes experiential self-exploration, personal development and community building in a safe and supportive setting. The basic components are intensified breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork (optional), expressive drawing and group process.
Participants may enter extra-ordinary, deep consciousness states during breathwork, vividly connecting to biographical material that lies below waking consciousness. They may relive experiences from birth, or connect with experiences of other people and life forms. They may experience cathartic emotional release or enter archetypal, mythic or transcendent realms of consciousness. Particular attention is paid to creating a safe space for individual and community healing and evolution.
DTB is a direct lineage from Stanislav Grof, founder of holotropic breathwork and seminal figure in transpersonal psychology. Facilitated by Teresa Smith, certified as a facilitator of Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork™ and Grof Legacy Breathwork™. Ms. Smith's facilitation of Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork draws on her experience of personal healing through this modality, and her background in movement, bodywork, consciousness studies and meditation.
Individual Breathwork Journeys: Flexible dates to fit your schedule, 1 hr - 3 hr sessions by appointment.
Group Process Breathwork: Individual journeying in a group setting, supporting each other. Spring 2023 - Weekend Workshops and 1 1/2 hr Introductory Workshops.
