Men's Breathwork Day and Shamanic Journey

Breathwork, deep listening and Shamanic journeying

Feb 18, 2023 / 2 Minona St, Hawthorn Australia, 3122

We invite you to join with us for this Mens' work day exploring our relationship to power via breathwork, active listening and shamanic journeying.

This is an opportunity to meet with a group of like minded men and dive into and discuss how we show our power in the world. Finding the balance of stepping into and not stepping over or stepping away from our power is one of the key challenges faced by men today and we can only do this via deep inner work and being in relationship with other men.

    What will the workshop cover?


    Breathwork involves a combination of deep and rapid breathing, evocative music and focused bodywork to access non-ordinary states of consciousness. The work is done in a supportive environment with the assistance of highly trained facilitators. Breathwork can lead to the healing of previous emotional or physical trauma, reduction in anxiety and stress, amelioration of symptoms of depression, emotional expression & release and creative inspiration. Many people also report that it helps them connect to a deeper feeling of meaning and purpose in their lives, as well as a greater feeling of authenticity in their daily life.

    The breathwork sessions in this workshop will be slightly shorter than our usual breathwork workshops but will follow a similar format. 

    Shamanic Journeying

    Another opportunity to dive into the deep and explore the Lower and upper worlds of the Shamanic traditions. As a group, we will create Sacred Space - a powerful energetic container for the day's work- in the same way Andean shamans have for thousands of years. 

    There will be an opportunity to dive into the underworld and seek out those dis-incarnate parts of the self in an effort to reclaim power which we have given away. Once these parts have been re-membered we will have an opportunity to explore the upper world and to meet and make contact with a spiritual teacher who may be able to help us work with our relationship to power - Spiritual teachers in the upperworld may come int he form of archetypal beings, power animals or ascended teachers.

    Active Listening / Deep listening community

    In just the same way that we often experience trauma in relation to another - via traumas of omission or traumas of commission - we can only heal in relationship to the other. And so as a part of this day there will be a number of opportunities to share your experience with the workshop participants through active listening and dyad work.

    Fire Ceremony

    We will close the day with a traditional Fire Ceremony, which is a central practice in many Shamanic Traditions. Fire allows for rapid transformation of energies that have come up for processing through Breathwork, and for crystallising lessons gained through journeying. In the deepest sense, Fire becomes our alchemical teacher; as we turn the old patterns over to Spirit for resolution, we learn how to transmute the charge of the past into something new.
