Connecting with Shakti in Breathwork
We are just returning from Shaktifest, a transformational yoga festival held in Joshua Tree, CA . We must have facilitated between 500-600 people over the weekend. It was hard to keep count and by our last session we had to coordinate with the producers of the festival for extra help at the doors and devise a ticket plan to allow those who had not yet had the chance to have the “experience” assure entrance so that they could get inside. The first two days the lines gathered an hour before and we were forced to turn 40-50 people away each day. It is heart breaking and brought up for me the question why? What is it that creates such drive to be present at a simple workshop.
One reason that is clear through my own experience is because the way and nature that The Breath Center facilitates breathwork is uniquely different. I will attempt to explain, but over and over again it is said there “are no words to articulate”. Our gift in guided practice encompasses elements of yogic and shamanic teachings, returning us to mother earth, connecting us to the universe and all things. For those of you that are open hearted, it can take you on a mystical journey and reconnect you to divine Prana Maya or life force energy, a tangible experience for some of nirvana, many are searching for.
In alignment with the actual name of our first festival of the season “Shaktifest“, breathwork with We can bring you to experience Shakti which is defined as “the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe.” Shakti is the concept, or personification, of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as ‘The Great Divine Mother‘ in Hinduism.
On 5.15.15 we recorded the first of three sessions. If you are interested in a copy for your home breathwork practice, reach out for us. The recording captured the essence of the work in a profound way.
For those who joined us at Shaktifest, we are in deep gratitude to you for having the courage and commitment to yourself and for joining us in this expansive journey of transformation.
For those of who have yet to experience the work, you may wish to purchase the group recording which will also be available shortly.
Most important, I hope to see you at one of our events this season. “The Great Divine Mother” may very well be calling you…
