These times are heavy and yet, they are ripe for personal and collective change. Suffering can abound in the present moment and our bodies also remember the past. Are there things you need to witness, hold, bring some tenderness to?

In this workshop Jennifer will share a bit about her work as a trauma-informed/ experienced healing arts practitioner, offering some tips for creating and holding spaces that are supportive. She will then teach the breath pattern guiding the group in a 45 minute practice. There will be time for writing and sharing and to close the circle.

Breathwork is an active meditation that helps bring attention to the cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and somatic experiences and intelligences living in our bodies. Connecting us to the stories we carry while releasing stagnant energy, it reconnects us to joy, clarity, creativity, and aliveness. The practice reminds us we all, each of us, hold the power within ourselves to shift and heal parts of ourselves. The breath is the medicine and our bodies are wise. It’s a psychedelic and transcendent experience. There’s a very good chance you will leave feeling more at ease and in love with yourself.

Bring your curiosity, a pen and notebook.

Please note: Breathwork can stir up deep, emotional experiences. It is Jennifer’s deep desire to create a space that feels nurturing and supportive.
