    What will the workshop cover?

    Holotropic Breathwork

    Holotropic 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 format will be slightly shorter than our usual Holotropic Breathwork workshops but will follow the same format where each participant has the opportunity to breathe and sit with a partner. 

    Despacho and Fire Ceremony

    The Andean Shamans never ask for anything from the cosmos without offering the same in return. This beautiful ceremony will engage your soul and creativity in building a mandala of offerings to call in what you need to support you on your journey.

    Once the despacho is completed, it will be wrapped and used to clear your field of any energies that block the manifestation of your intentions. We will then invoke the power of Mother Earth to digest these energies, as well as call in the new lines of destiny installed in the Despacho.
