Conscious Breathwork is both a psycho-emotional therapeutic practice and an opportunity to deeply explore and glean insight from non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Conscious Breathwork is a practice in returning to natural, unhindered breathing. It is a practice that starts with mimicking, as best as possible, this natural breathing experience and ends with being breathed. When the mimicking of natural breathing – i.e. relaxed exhales and no unconscious pauses in the breath cycle – is sustained for long enough in a session the old stresses that one’s physiology hasn’t yet discharged or integrated start to rise to the surface of consciousness. These unconscious experiences are suppressed or repressed through both physical and physiological restrictions, particularly in one’s breathing, so when a person consciously invites a change to the patterned restrictions the unconscious experiences begin to surface within the body-mind. As they do they can also trigger feeling states that were tied to the original stressing experiences and the person’s reaction to them. By catalyzing the lifting of these old stresses into consciousness, a person is then able to address them with corrective experiences while learning from and integrating them.
There are numerous styles of Conscious Breathwork, each with their own styles of facilitation, supplemental practices, and perspectives on how the connected breathing is best done. They go by the name of Rebirthing Breathwork, Holotropic Breathwork, Transformational Breathing, Clarity Breathwork, Shamanic Breathwork, Integrative Breathwork, Vivation, Breath of Bliss, Biodynamic Breathwork, and more.

"I have never felt more relaxed, centered, and grounded in my life. That was the most beautiful experience I’ve ever had, it was like I was the earth, the root systems, the trees, the flowers… it was amazing."
- T. Saadoon
"I haven't felt empowered in my own voice, for maybe my whole life. That experience was something else… Feeling like I could use my own voice, to yell and cry and not be embarrassed. It felt really powerful, thank you so much, SO MUCH for all of that, I already can’t wait for the next time."
- D. Williams
"I had no idea what to expect, all I had ever done was yogic breathing. THIS was not yogic breathing. My whole body was tingling with energy, my spine wanted to move, which felt really good, I'm glad you noticed it and guided me to go with it….it was apparently just what I needed. My body feels more mobile, and I feel a deeper connection to it too. I was surprised at the emotional release, but I feel so so much better now. I loved it so much."
