HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE A CANDIDATE:

Conscious, Connected Breathwork results in certain specific physiological changes in the body and also can result in intense physical and emotional release. Please be aware that these sessions are safe, illuminating, transformative and deeply healing, and can sometimes cause the following:

* Tingling

* Buzzing

* Vibrating

* Trembling, shaking or other physical sensations, including spontaneous physical movement

* Tetany (tightness in the hands or sometimes the jaw- we will guide you on how to work with it and manually release it if required)

* Somatic (body) unwinding 

* Deep emotional experiencing, release and catharsis 

* Trauma release 

* Experiencing life force energy (prana) moving through your body

* Unlocking repressed sensual/orgasmic/shakti energies

* Ecstatic, kundalini awakenings (usually for more advanced journeyers)
