The Essence of Trauma & Breathwork

Trauma is a human experience - at some point, everyone encounters it. One study shows that approximately 70% of people worldwide experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Often categorized as a “Big T” trauma, like sexual abuse, a 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 mind. Over time, these impacts can compound and become further internalized, and ultimately, trauma manifests as physical or emotional symptoms/disease. Breathwork has many positive effects on alleviating anxiety, stress, and the emotional tension held in the body. Breathwork can also help heal trauma, release stored/stuck energy, and restore aspects of ourselves that have been impacted by traumatic events. As the pressure of our emotions begins to release, a path toward healing and wholeness is made clear, and balance is restored.

Understanding Trauma-Informed Breathwork

The Trauma-Informed Breathwork that we facilitate is based on a Holotropic-style form of breathwork. Holotropic breathwork is classified as deeply transformational and meaningful work. The word Holotropic means: “moving toward wholeness,” originating 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 transformational experiences for the individual. This type of breathwork brings participants into non-ordinary states of consciousness, allowing suppressed thoughts and emotions to more easily surface, be expressed, processed, and released. Allowing ourselves to feel and heal from the emotions and memories that comprise these traumas is a profound process. The emotional charge of the traumas is allowed to flow, and its hold on us is released. After a single session, people share their experience as “feeling lightness and clarity”.

Please arrive by 12.50pm to start on time. These processes take the time they take, and sometimes we run over. Please allow for an extra 30minuts so that you don’t have to rush off in the middle of group reflections.

Expert Guidance for Your Journey

Anna Wood brings forward a decade of experience as a Psychotherapist to support participants in safely exploring the depths of their psyche. As a specialist in the trauma field, Anna provides a unique, trauma-informed lens under which participants can safely access these trending breathwork practices. Before your journey, Anna will introduce tools to activate the appropriate brain hemispheres, guiding participants to gently drop into their body and connect as a group, creating a safe space where everyone feels fully supported and capable of using this breathwork to the best of their ability. Integration is another hugely important aspect of the Trauma-Informed Breathwork process. We offer our participants time after breathwork for journaling, grounding, and group reflection.
