Integrative Breathwork: A Spiritual Journey Accessing the Inner Healer

Integrative Breathwork: A Spiritual Journey Accessing the Inner Healer

Facilitated by Faith Burrington Jones, MA/LMHC

Come join us for a deep inner experience using integrative breathwork, evocative music, expressive artwork, and group sharing.

Integrative Breathwork uses the power of circular rhythmic breathing along with evocative music that mimics the ancient spiritual practice of ceremonial fire dancing while lying on a comfortable mat in a journeying position. By using circular breathing and evocative music as a conduit altering normal states of consciousness, the ego recedes, and participants are able to access their inner healer where resources are experienced for transformational healing and spiritual guidance.

This workshop facilitates deep healing and conscious awakening; it is a healing into wholeness! 

COST: $95 - For more information and to register, please call Faith at (413) 522-4220 or email at: faithjones@verizon.net

Awaken your curiosity this summer!

Continuum Somanautiko is the art of slowing down and cultivating our ability to pay attention to our internal experience through breath, sound, meditative awareness, sensation, and fluid movement…

“The path leads to place of such presence we are suddenly able only to whisper… To be here requires attention, listening, and gazing deeply without assaulting each thing seen with a conclusion. The silence here is not just in the ‘what has been,’ it is most deliciously waiting, too, in the ‘what will be.’ Movement in the silence is toward, not away from. Press ever into the waiting silence that holds all possibility. Ignore it at your peril, for otherwise life is a presumption, which is the home of disappointment.” ~ Cheryl Sanders-Sardello
