Deep Breathing Weekend: Harvesting time – abundance and release with Breath Training Team!

25/08/2023 17:00 - 27/08/2023 18:00

Our program includes deep breathing to open the body, active meditations, revitalizing encounters with others and deeply melting touch. The fire and water! – Flame and relaxation!

With the theme of the August harvest, we explore abundance and the pleasure it creates in the body. We can be exactly all that we already are, while feeling our own potential. We get deeper into ourselves and open up to letting go the unnecessary. We find in our bodies the qualities of the elements, the burning power of fire and the relaxing nurturing of water. It is a moment to enjoy the warmth and abundance of late summer, while feeling the twilight already approaching, allowing us to take charge and rest. The refreshing Lake Puujärvi and the lakeside sauna are available to support the weekend’s program.

Come and land into your own body, find presence and your own power.

The Deep Breathing Weekend is an opportunity to explore deep breathing, and is suitable both for new and experienced breathers. The program will be translated into English if necessary.

Deep breathing as a therapeutic method

Deep breathing is a safe and effective method to open the body to release tension. After birth, most of us have the ability to breathe deeply. Over the years, traumatic experiences and setbacks that we are not able to come to terms with, begin to build up in our physical bodies causing tension that literally shrinks the living space around us. We lose the ability to be spontaneous and breathe naturally. Deep breathing begins to massage open these tensions, making more space for us. It helps us to feel our true emotions and find our way back to our authentic selves.  With the help of deep breathing we are able to again reach the childlike, spontaneous joy that we used to know, we are able to find pleasure, openness and the ability to live in the moment.  When our breathing truly becomes deeper our lives can change and we can find a way to accept ourselves and our bodies as we really are.

Deep breathing is a powerful method that is not suitable for pregnant women or people with serious mental health problems. If you have a physical or mental health challenge or chronic illness that makes you doubt whether you can attend the weekend, please contact us.
