August 2019 Womens Circle

Celebrating the Divine Feminine: Holotropic Breathwork Workshop

We invite you to participate in this Friday night and All day Saturday day workshop in Melbourne on the 30th and 31st August, 2019.

This workshop is a first time offering from Melbourne breathwork. It's designed specifically as a Women's breathwork circle. The workshop will be facilitated by Ruth Langford and Sharna Hughes with the invitation for women to come together and dive deep into the breath.

The workshop includes a friday evening opening circle from 7:30 - 9:30pm plus a full saturday of breathwork from 8:45 to 7:30pm. This is an experiential workshop where each participant will have the opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork as both a sitter and a breather.

What will the workshop cover?

Friday Evening 

Opening Circle

The workshop includes an opening circle on the Friday evening with an opportunity to meet the other participants in the workshop, hear a brief introduction to the practice of Holotropic Breathwork as well as the chance to choose a partner for the following day's breathwork session. The Friday evening session is also a good opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding Holotropic Breathwork. A small ceremony / ritual / experiential exercise will also be a part of the opening circle.


Two Breathwork sessions

The Saturday includes a morning and an afternoon breathwork session, where you will participate as a breather in one of the sessions and also sit for your partner in the other session.

Mandala, integration and sharing.

After each session there is the opportunity to start the integration process by creating a mandala / artwork of your experience. We will close the saturday with a closing sharing circle where participants will have the chance to share the experience of their breathwork session.

New breathers and people
new to Melbourne Breathwork workshops

Participants who are new to breathwork, will need to have a phone conversation with one of our facilitators so we can cover some introductory information covering Holotropic Breathwork as well as a chance for the participant to share any relevant information regarding previous experience of Holotropic breathwork or other practices. Please note: The introductory phone call can take between 30 minutes to one hour. Please get in contact with either Anthony or Ruth using the details listed below.
