Overview & Instructions

Emotional Healing Through Access Breathwork

by Jacob O’Cain

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’s 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:

  1. Invitation — A song with lyrics focuses you while you set your intentions and moves you into the process
  2. Inspiration — Heavy, LOUD, intense techno / psy-trance / tribal music brings you up, stacked breathing
  3. Exploration — Moves you forward on your journey and through, chaotic breathing
  4. Integration — Ambient music designed to unwind gently and peacefully, cathartic breathing
  5. Ground — A song with lyrics brings you back and grounds you

A Complete Session includes:

  • 30 minutes instruction / preparation
  • 2 hours “on the mat” breathing / musical journey
  • 30 minutes sharing and processing experience

Our Current Speaker Systems:

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’s the cost?

FIFTH DIRECTION has 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 for that that they may have never gotten to using traditional ‘talk therapy’ or other methods.

Your investment in your Self is $55 for the three hour Access Breathwork Session. An optional follow-up Spiritual Integration Mentoring Support session is available for Access Breathwork participants for the discounted rate of $55 (normally $125/hour) – this is by phone or video conferencing and can help you apply what may have come up from your session or simply help you go deeper.
