Breathwork Healing Circle with Krista Reid

“The Autumn Equinox is a great point on the Wheel of the Year to pause and consider shedding what we don’t need. It’s a time for fire ceremonies to burn what we’re leaving behind, grounding, and tending to the lungs.

A time of equal day and night, the Autumn Equinox is a magical threshold for change. The feeling in the air is like a surge of energy, the spark of transformation, a new direction, full of possibilities.

This mid-harvest celebration is about bowing to change, expressing gratitude for how far we’ve come this year and what we have, and — as a time of nearly equal light and dark — inviting in balance. It’s a time for welcoming transitions and transformation, for getting closer to who we are at our core, and preparing to turn inward."
- Leah Vandervelt

The session will begin with a guided meditation and sharing exercise to help participants identify what needs to shift/heal in their lives and their intentions for the session. You will then find a comfortable position lying down and Krista will guide you through the Breathwork for 35-40 minutes, all set to a cosmic soundtrack, and ending with deep relaxation. To close, we gather together in circle and share our experience, if we feel called to, and Krista will answer any questions you may have about Breathwork.

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that facilitates emotional release in a safe and supportive environment. Through full rhythmic breathing, the conscious mind softens, allowing us to tune into our body wisdom to heal current stress, past wounds, and traumas.

Breathwork has the power to change emotional default settings and lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction by feeling and clearing with the breath. This innovative therapy aims to connect you to your intuition, creativity and self-worth. Above all, this practice nourishes the heart; helping you to align with feelings of deep appreciation and self-love.

You will not leave this course unchanged.
