Multicultural Healing Breathwork

Multicultural Healing Breathwork (MHB) is a holistic approach to self-exploration that utilizes conscious, controlled breathing techniques to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It combines the power of the breath with a culturally sensitive and inclusive approach that welcomes people from all walks of life. This modality recognizes that individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds bring unique perspectives, beliefs, and experiences to their healing journey. 

MHB recognizes the intimate connection between the breath and one's overall state of being. By consciously utilizing the breath, individuals can access, and release deeply held emotions and trauma, that often cause patterns of tension in the body, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, addiction, and relationship issues.

 

The autonomic nervous system plays a role in influencing our emotional state. When we experience emotions like fear, excitement, or stress, the sympathetic division of the autonomic system becomes active. It triggers physiological responses such as increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and sweating. This prepares our body for action – fight, flight, or freeze -- in response to the emotional stimulus. Conversely, the parasympathetic division of the autonomic system helps us calm down and relax after experiencing intense emotions. It slows our heart rate, promotes deep breathing, and helps restore a sense of equilibrium. These autonomic responses to emotions are a natural part of our body's way of adapting and responding to the world around us.

 

MHB utilizes a variety of specific breathing techniques that are designed to intentionally activate either the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system. For example, deep, fast, connected circular breathing can cause unresolved events and emotions from the past to surface, activating the sympathetic nervous system, which provides participants the opportunity to resolve their fears and trauma. Once emotional healing has occurred, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated and the breathing pace naturally slows down and an overall feeling of well-being, inner harmony, balance, acceptance, and relaxation is achieved.

 

Online Healing Breathwork sessions

A typical breath session will take approximately 2 hours. It begins with a 20-30 minute consultation to clarify what the participant hopes to achieve. It is followed by 30-60 minutes of guided breathwork and finishes with a discussion about the participant’s experience. Participants are recommended to dress in comfortable clothing and are directed to lie flat on a blanket or yoga mat during the breathing exercise while being guided through the process. 

There are a variety of types of breathwork available online, depending on the desired outcome. Some promote centering and relaxation and are conducted privately online. The primary purpose of MHB is to build a bridge between the conscious and subconscious mind, enabling participants to free themselves from negative limiting beliefs and emotions that interfere with being able to accept themselves, others, or their lived experience.

 

Participants often enter non-ordinary states of consciousness and experience physical changes in their bodies while releasing emotional trauma. Therefore, for online MHB sessions, it is recommended that participants have a support partner with them throughout the process because MHB works at a very deep level. While MHB has proved to be a safe process, a partner is necessary in case unexpected interruptions occur such as a visitor knocks at the door or the internet goes down in the middle of the process. 

For experienced breathwork participants a support partner is not required for online sessions.

MHB provides a powerful platform for individuals to heal, grow, and actualize their full potential. Participants often achieve a level of transformation on emotional, mental, spiritual and somatic levels that is truly life-changing.

 

While MHB acknowledges the importance of recognizing and respecting cultural differences between people, it seeks to unite people by simultaneously recognizing that we all share far more in common than the differences that seemingly divide us.
