Breath As A Path Into Presence
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God? He is the breath inside the breath.” –Kabir 15th C. Mystic Poet and Saint
We invite you to experience the healing power of your breath during this afternoon retreat at Well of Mercy.
At this retreat you will:
- Experience the benefits of a full, deep, connected breath
- Learn about the benefits of conscious breathing for your well being
- Grow your capacity to hold compassionate presence for yourself
- Come away with a life tool to increase your energy, detoxify your system, create resonance between your body, heart, and mind.
- Integrate stuck emotions held in the body
- Feel more connected and peaceful within yourself and with all things
Conscious connected breathing is designed to shift old patterns of shallow breathing, allowing you to feel the effects of full, deep breathing. This gives you more energy, openness, and support. Conscious connected breathing enhances all levels of your body, with physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual benefits that greatly promote your well-being.
Benefits of conscious connected breathing include, but are not limited to:
❖ Increased energy
❖ Tension release
❖ More compassion for yourself and others
❖ Decreased anxiety
❖ Awareness and integration of repressed emotions
❖ Spiritual connection
❖ Feelings of more inner peace and joy
This experiential workshop seeks to support you as you discover how your breath and body can facilitate your inner wisdom, spiritual growth, and well- being. This workshop supports you to experience how your breath invites you into the greater presence of these centers and the kingdom of God within.
