DISCOVERING BREATH IN RECOVERY

I am currently sharing breathwork in two inpatient early - recovery centers in Washington state. Within the full-time treatment container, breathwork can serve as a powerful adjunct to the therapeutic services. And, as a catalyst for gentle physical, emotional, and cellular detoxification. We prepare for the breathwork with body-centered mindfulness practices and a sharing circle. Folks receive practical, simple tools that they can use on a daily basis to ground, orient, release stress & tension, and cultivate

greater inner-awareness and self-care.
