Dreamshadow Breathwork Journeys
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.
DTB is a direct lineage from Stan Grof, founder of holotropic breathwork and seminal figure in transpersonal psychology. Facilitated by Teresa Smith, certified in Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork; working on certification in Grof Legacy Breathwork.
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. January and February ‘90 minute introductory’ workshops and weekend workshop dates TBA. Please inquire for info and registration.
