✨ Experience Heightened states of consciousness with the support to heal, inspire, and transform ✨

Conscious Connected Breathing ~ an Active Meditation. You will be guided into the somatic experience of the body, connecting the hemispheres of the brain, and bringing in present moment awareness. The parasympathetic state occurs here, and life force energy is activated. The body's wisdom speaks. Breathwork is a powerful vibrational medicine, where we remember our true selves.

CONSCIOUS CONNECTED BREATHING:
This is a grounded and activated technique. On the spectrum of breathing practices, it is more intense than passive meditation, and less intense than Wim Hof method and Halotrophic practices. We do not forcefully evoke catharsis, but release of emotion is invited. We teach self regulation and nervous system regulation: how to expand the capacity to hold your own energy, emotion, sensation, and increase your stress threshold (that means less stress! :)


YOUR FACILITATOR:
Dr. Janice Sutherland is a Naturopathic Doctor, also trained in Bowen Therapy and Breathwork Facilitation. She has been leading group breath circles in the Vancouver area since 2017.
