About the event

Trauma-Informed Breathwork is a powerful form of breathwork, which seeks to drop you into a “non-ordinary state of consciousness“, shifting blocked energy caused by trauma, and unlocking limitless healing potential in the body.

In this event, we will guide you using ceremonial cacao and guided meditation to connect with the physical, emotional and mental layers of the body. From there you will learn the Trauma-Informed Breathwork pattern and embark on a 45minute somatic journey. Each journey is different. You may feel a deep level of calm, gain messages from your subconscious, experience a powerful energetic or emotional release, or connect with spirit. Your body is intelligent and will use this practice in whichever way it needs on the day. As the journey concludes you will be guided into the integration process through gentle crystal bowl sound healing.

TRAUMA & BREATHWORK

Trauma is a human experience - at some point everyone experiences it. One study shows that about 70% of people worldwide experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Often categorized as a “Big T” trauma like sexual abuse, natural disaster, and war, or a “Little T” trauma like a breakup, prolonged stress, or financial trouble — all traumas have an impact on our bodies and subconscious minds. Over time, these impacts can compound and become further internalised, and ultimately manifesting as physical or emotional symptoms/disease. Just as breathwork has many positive effects on alleviating anxiety and managing stress, breathwork can also help heal trauma, release stored energy, and restore aspects of ourselves that are impacted by traumatic events.

WHAT IS TRAUMA-INFORMAED BREATHWORK:

The Trauma-Informed Breathwork that we use is a Holotropic Style breathwork. Holotropic breathwork means ‘moving toward wholeness’ coming from the Greek words holos, which means ‘whole’ and trepein, which means ‘moving towards’. This breathwork technique pairs quickened breathing with evocative music, to elicit healing and transformation. This type of breathwork brings participants into non-ordinary states of consciousness, allowing for suppressed thoughts and stored emotions to more easily move towards the surface to be expressed, processed, and released. Allowing ourselves to feel the emotions and memories that comprise these traumas is a profound process. The emotional charge of the traumas is allowed to flow, and it’s hold on us is released. After a session, many people feel lightness and clarity.

EXPERT FACILITATION TO SUPPORT YOUR JOURNEY

Anna brings forward her years of experience as a psychotherapist to support participants to safety explore the depths of their psyche. As a specialist in the trauma field, Anna provides a unique trauma-informed lens under which participants can safety access these trending breathwork practices. Before the journey, Anna introduces specific practices to activate the appropriate brain hemispheres, guiding participants to gently drop into their body and connect relationally with others to create safe space. Integration is another important aspect of the Trauma-Informed Breathwork process. A breathwork journey may bring great insight or a strong cathartic experience… but then what? At The Breath Collective we pride ourselves on the level of aftercare we offer our clients. We offer time after the breath for journalling, grounding and group reflection. We send out a recording of a short breathwork recording to support a daily practice. We offer a discount to the hot and cold therapy centre. Holistic psychotherapy sessions are also available if additional integration is required after a group session.
