Heart Alchemy Breathwork & Reiki Circle

with Kathy Rivera

IMG-75.jpg

Welcome to a sacred Breathwork & Reiki Circle designed to gently guide you into the expansive realm of your heart, where healing and transformation unfold effortlessly.In our fast-paced world, we often prioritize the chatter of the mind over the wisdom of the body, unknowingly accumulating emotional and energetic debris that weighs heavy on the heart. This gathering offers a sanctuary for releasing these burdens and reconnecting with the innate wisdom residing within.

Through the powerful union of Breathwork healing and Usui Reiki, we embark on a journey of deep somatic release, allowing the breath to act as a bridge from head to heart. As we surrender to the rhythm of our breath, we awaken the nervous system, inviting in waves of somatic, emotional, and spiritual release. Guided by the harmonious blend of sound, essential oils, and the gentle touch of Reiki energy, this experiential workshop offers a courageous space for exploration and transformation.

Join us in this sacred circle as we honor the wisdom of the body, embrace the power of breath, and journey inward to discover the boundless depths of our own hearts.
 

**No prior experience with either modality is necessary. Come dressed comfortably and open your heart to a journey of self-discovery and healing.

Radiant Rhythms Ecstatic Dance is an interactive immersive experience where everyone is invited to free expression through dance and movement. The goal is to get out of your head and get in touch with your body, surrender and let go of judgment. In ecstatic dance, we co-create a safe space to be our authentic selves. The benefits of ecstatic dance include: relieve stress and tension, mindfulness and relaxation, somatic healing, exercise and play, being our most authentic selves, community and connection.

 

No experience necessary! During the dance, there is no talking. This helps us to connect with our bodies and each other nonverbally. The result is often a trance-like and ecstatic experience.

All inclusive Space: All ages, genders, sexual orientation, and abilities welcome.  

Music: A mix of new age, worldbeat, tribal, EDM, trance, arranged in a dance wave, from slow to fast to slow. It is typically 50% non-lyrical.
