Holotropic Breathwork and Shamanic Ritual; Initiating A New Year
w/Sharon Mijares

February 10 or February 24; 1:00 pm to approximately 5:00 pm

Holotropic Breathwork opens non-ordinary states of consciousness, encouraging deep healing, discovering your capacity to transform old patterns, and expand your world through heightened explorations of other realms.

Breathe into transforming energies deepening and illuminating all levels: mind, body, and spirit. Each deep and rapid breathing session lasts over two hours. The session ends with a shamanic healing cleansing ritual.

Where: The Lotus Center, 211 West Broadway, Silver City

Cost: Each session is $65 (with deposit of $25 to reserve limited spots)

What is needed

  • Willingness to breathe deeply and to enter non-ordinary states
  • Bring a sleeping bag or very thick pad to lie on (yoga mats are not thick enough)
  • Bring a blanket as body temperatures can change
  • Pillow so head is comfortable for long sessions
  • Elastic band soft eye pad (similar to those they give on long-distance airplanes)
  • Light sack lunch

Note:  Length of each workshop will vary depending on the number of people attending.
