Chrysalis – Breathwork Journey
September 3 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The new Chrysalis breathwork series is a ‘Tetra’ Breathwork journey with plant medicine and ceremony. Combined with rhythmic music and sounds this has been proven to be a very deep healing and awakening experience. We journey into an altered state of consciousness enabling us to hear the whispers of our true selves. It’s about transforming heavy stuck energies into love, light and understanding. Releasing tension and trauma from our bodies brings in relaxation and rest. Liberating old patterns and ways of being holding us back…..We experience the true power of the breath, a deep connection, healing on all levels of your being. Balancing the mind body heart and soul…
‘Tetra’ means awakening and healing, this type of breathwork is so very powerful on its own and when combined with intensions, plant medicine, music and ceremony it is truly is a potent and unique journey. This workshop will awaken your soul, your heart, your passion and zest for life! We ask for healing for your higher good only and every journey is different. We move through the elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air with music and sounds to balance your being and drop deeply into an altered state of consciousness connecting to earths energies as well as the cosmic and celestial energies. As we bypass the conceptual mind we are able to reach the subconscious and activate your own natural healing mechanism’s. You will receive what ever you need in that moment. We use a conscious connective circular breath throughout the journey, its that simple!
Kristy is a ‘Tetra’ breathwork facilitator, she is a yoga teacher and an energetic/reiki/ somatic/shamanic healer. You can feel and experience these medicines throughout her breathwork journeys. Kristy believes the breath is the key to healing the world. The power of the breath can liberate, empower, heal on all levels of the being. Breathwork has been her medicine and now it is her passion and purpose to share this incredibly powerful but accessible method to the world. You are the medicine! This is a very special workshop for Kristy as she spent much time here completing her Diploma in Hatha Yoga teacher training….. this was the beginning of her journey into breathwork……she is honoured to be sharing her medicine in such sacred space…
Breathwork enables us to return and rest in the parasympathetic nervous system, inviting in restoration and rejuvenation. We are able to bye pass the conceptual mind and reach the subconscious, clearing out the old and inviting in light. We are able to control our nervous system with our breath, the breath is our very own medicine, we use the breath to alkalise the body, creating strength and resilience to our immune system. We will connect to our hearts with the powerful medicine of cacao. We will be using organic ceremonial-grade cacao which will not only help you drop into a deep theta state but will relax the muscles, increase blood flow and oxygen to the brain and increase serotonin levels…… you will feel focused but relaxed and open-hearted…..this is earth’s medicine of the heart!
This journey includes a shamanic cacao ceremony, crystal sound bowls, shamanic rattles and drums….. you will receive healing and liberation wherever is needed most for your higher good only.
You will be safely guided and supported through your journey in a protected and comfortable sacred space, drinking the plant is optional but highly recommended…
The roots of breath work go back to ancient times including yogic traditions as well as shamanic practices, it is the foundation of most spiritual modalities.
