A participant shared this of his experience with Access Breathwork.  Many times you see disclaimers that "results are not typical," however, this is an accurate description of one of many impactful results participants may have. 

 

 
 
What is it like? 
Each participant should bring a yoga matcamping mat (we have an electric air pump), and/or sleeping bag/blanket(s) to lie on the floor.  Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. You may want to bring a pillow, sheet or additional blanket, eye-mask or blindfold, handkerchief, and bottle of water. The experience evolves on a platform of specially choreographed music to support your breathing which is designed to launch you on a psycho-spiritual journey of inspiration, exploration and integration. You will learn a circular as well as a stacked breathing technique that will change your physiology and put you in an altered state very quickly. The key is to follow the music and keep breathing.
 
There are five parts:
Invocation — A song with lyrics focuses you while you set your intentions and moves you into the process
Coming Up — Heavy, LOUD, intense techno / psy-trance / tribal music, stacked breathing 
Journey — Moves you forward and through, circular breathing
Unwind — Brings you down gently and peacefully, measured full exhales
Ground — Two songs with lyrics bring you back and ground you
 
A Complete Session includes:
30 minutes instruction / preparation
2 hours “on the mat” breathing
30 minutes sharing and processing experience
 
Our Current Sound System:
Just to give you an idea, you will be immersed in the sound and feel the music. It is a resonate experience with qualities of a "sonic bath" (or like being in a dance club or at a concert). (If you are especially sensitive to louder volumes you may want to bring ear plugs for the first hour.)

What is the cost?

We have invested thousands of dollars in equipment, resources and time developing Access Breathwork and making it available to people wishing to go within, explore their spirituality and connect utilizing this integrative psycho-somatic platform. The benefits participants have already received have been priceless. In two hours breathing on the mat, we have seen clients address and integrate experiences that would have taken months, years, or that they may have never gotten to using traditional 'talk therapy' or other methods. We have decided to let you choose what value, if any, you place on your experience of Access Breathwork. After registering, if you wish, you may make a contribution towards your experience; we will also gratefully accept your contribution at the event in order for us to continue offering sessions to the public.
