Breathwork is an active guided three part breath that drops us into the heart and body, out of the mind. Marisa guides you into a safe space to be witnessed, held and supported as the breath makes room for oxygen to flood your system. This way of breathing encourages deeper nourishing and releasing, moving energy through the whole system on every level. The organs, the brain, lungs, heart, skin get scrubbed, washed, and fed. Marisa will open circle with a meditation and statements of intention. We are invited to bring our guides, mentors, angels and supports.
The focus of this Breathwork will be our Our Sexual Energy. Our sexuality is connected to every part of us On a physical level our sexual organs are intricately related to our pelvic floor, our breath, abdominals, and to every other system in our bodies. Touch is a vital need, as important as food, water and air. Many of us are touch deprived in Quarantine. This lack of touch affects our health and well being. Our Pleasure, Joy and Connection to others is a medicine in the body and many of us are feeling losses and lack in these areas. In the process of the Breathing we allow all that needs to be heard, witnessed and released to arise. Sometimes the Breathwork Meditation is a relaxing flow of rest visions and renewal. Sometimes it is quiet. And sometimes there are cathartic releases of tears, fear, and anger. Often there are waves of Joy, Pleasure, Laughter and Play. Quite often we are blessed with insights, understandings, and healing connections.
After the active Breathwork practice there is time, to relax, lay with a quiet easy breath. Marisa is a Reiki Master and has been practicing Distance Reiki and Virtual Holding these past months of Quarantine and has been pleased and surprised by the magic and felt sense of Reiki through distance. She will offer Reiki to the group.
Please have a notebook, pen, markers or crayons if possible, blankets, pillows (stuffed animals if possible). Marisa will send a playlist that you will play though a phone separate from the computer.
