Audio Guided Breathwork Journey

FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME...

You may practice on your own, with a loved one, or a small group. The audio sessions weave together guided breath - sound - movement, affirmations, and music.

PLEASE NOTE:

It is recommended that you have been guided by Leah or another breathwork practitioner in 1:1 sessions, group journeys or workshops/trainings prior to working with these audio - guided journeys. Breathwork can ignite powerful energies and draw past experiences and emotions to the surface to be neutralized and integrated. A level of ability to be self-responsible and navigate the psychosomatic & energetic terrain is needed.

 

 

NEW TO BREATHWORK?

PLEASE READ BEFORE BEGINNING:

 

Conscious, connected breathwork is a safe, gentle and powerful circular breathing technique that can release physical tension, renew clarity of mind, draw forth emotions from the past to be resolved, inspirit the senses and subtle sensations, and open channels of blocked emotional energy and power. Please take some time to read through my website and learn more about this practice before you begin. Learn more here!

TO PREPARE YOU WILL NEED:

TO INTIATE THIS JOURNEY:

  • A comfortable, warm space where you feel safe and ideally will not be interrupted 

  • A surface to lie upon such as bed, a mattress, or a mat/pad on the ground.

  • Create sacred space. You may wish to light a candle, collect some meaningful items, or place a bouquet of flowers nearby.

  • A blanket (your temperature may fluctuate)

  • Pillows (for under your knees or to squeeze for comfort or to use for emotional release)

  • A journal and pen to note your experiences and insights.

  • Lie on your back with your hands open at your side, palms up and legs uncrossed (you may sit if that is more comfortable)

  • Head is fairly flat (it is recommended to use a flat pillow or no pillow) to allow your breathing passageways to be open

  • You may close your eyes to go deeper within, and you can always open your eyes to orient 

  • Begin to breathe and focus on relaxing your whole body

  • Internally, scan your body from head to toe and soften each part 

  • Bring your attention to your heart and set an intention for your journey (this may be "My intention is to stay awake and present with myself". Let your intention be simple, from your heart, and positively-oriented

  • Open your mouth and wiggle your jaw side to side

  • Find a comfortable position where your mouth is open and your jaw is relaxed

  • Begin to breathe in and out through an open mouth and open throat - inhale from your belly to your chest, heart, and lungs, and exhale gently and fully

  • The inhale sounds like a whispering “AHH” and the exhale sounds like a whispering “HAA”

  • The breath is gentle, not forced, and is circular, connected, rhythmic, and continuous, without a pause between the exhale and inhale.

  • If physical sensations and emotions arise, welcome them with curiosity and allow them to move and express through you 

  • If tension arises, and you are willing, breathe into the tension

  • If you feel bored, self-critical, or confused like "nothing is happening", try identifying what expectations you have brought into the session and how you may free yourself from them. And if nothing else, allow yourself the time to "just breathe" as a form of physical detoxification, a time for relaxation, and/or as a way of practicing self-care 

  • If at any time you feel that it is too much, slow down the breath and soften the inhale and exhale. You can also open your eyes and orient to your space

  • Be open to….new physical sensations, unexpected emotions surfacing, hearing your own thoughts more clearly, laughter, tears, a sense of connection with yourself or others, insight, guidance, greater aliveness and clarity of purpose or next steps...

  • At the end, you will be guided to return to your natural breath for a gentle integration period and then you will be invited to turn onto one side to rest. I highly suggest you take more time for rest and silence than what I offer you in this journey to integrate. 

  • Afterwards, you may wish to relax or write in your journal
