A Breathwork Journey: Navigating States II with Jez Grattan-Kane

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£15 – £30

What if the breath is a technology you can explore? Breathwork –  Inhale the heart speeds up. Exhale the heart slows down… There are many ways to tune the body mind with the technology of the breath.

This workshop will consist of an opening circle for us to co-create a safe space for our experiences. We will explore an introduction to the breath as technology, which can support you to create and navigate states. We will then take a journey with Conscious Connected Breathing where you will be resourced to regulate and calm your body-mind with your breath, supporting your awareness and regulation of the nervous system.

If you have attended before you are more than welcome again. We will be exploring different resources in the first phase, and each journey with Conscious Connected Breathing is unique to the individual at that time.

Your Journey

Breath-holds: We will explore what happens when we suspend the breath, intentionally and with curiosity. Inviting comfort into the breathless space, developing our resilience to stress, increasing CO2 tolerance (a good thing!), and being curious about the relation between the flow and volume of our thoughts with the breath.

Conscious Connected Breathing: We will then guide you through a process of Conscious Connected Breathing, a simple yet profound rhythmic breathing practice. One of braiding willpower and kindness into the inhale, then inviting acceptance and letting go through the exhale, this is done whilst laying down with Jez and other Breathwork facilitators holding the space. As well as increasing your physical capacity for the breath, this can induce a full spectrum of experiences, from ecstatic states to physical and emotional release, to states of deep rest, calm, and everything in-between. You will be supported in both the intention of and the listening within your journey.

Integration:After the journey ends, we will have time to rest, begin integrating, and have an opportunity to share our experiences

Our aim is to facilitate an experience of your own power with the breath, whilst in a co-created safe space. Introducing the breath as technology for you to integrate into your life, available for you to support navigating your states.
