DharmaPunx NYC Breathwork Circle

Breathwork is an active style of meditation practice. Using a 3 part Pranayama Breathwork technique, we'll actively breath through held patterns of tension in the body, connecting deeply and directly with our felt experience of being alive so that we can shift and clear mental states that aren't serving us.  Creating space for and connecting with the fullness of our human experience- the parts that we like and the parts that we don't- is part of living the full spectrum of life. 

Breathwork practices allow us to temporarily bypass the ego and thinking mind, stepping out of the stories of the future and the past.  This can help empty out the complexity of our lived experiences.  When we're able to create the space to be with whatever is arising- we'll see that it also passes.  This insight helps us learn to trust our embodied wisdom and allow this natural process to become part of our lives.  

Contraindications:  pregnancy, cardiovascular problems, significantly high blood pressure, major psychiatric conditions, recent surgery, acute infectious illness or epilepsy.  Asthma is not generally considered a contraindication but the participants inhaler must be available.

Dharma Punx NYC- 7th Annual Fall Retreat

Dharma Punx NYC- 7th Annual Fall Retreat

People regularly ask us, "I'm seeing such benefits from my meditation- how do I go deeper?"

It's our opinion that some of the most beneficial and rewarding experiences of spiritual life come from attending a meditation retreat, which helps participants learn to hold all of life with patience, kindness and wisdom, forming the foundations of insight.


Intentionally stepping out of the daily churn of life and the habit patterns that come with that can have a remarkably clarifying effect. What do we value? How do we want to spend our time? What holds us back from being present and authentic in our relationships, our work life or our communities? When we integrate these experiences into our lives, especially with the loving community support that tends to arise as a result of group practice like this- the effects can be quite powerful.

Taking the One Seat- A Virtual Breathwork Circle

Taking the One Seat- A Virtual Breathwork Circle

Breathwork is an active form of meditation that uses a two-part breath to shift stuck emotional energy. This clearing out can happen in our physical self as well as in out belief systems.  When we breathe consciously and with purpose- focusing all of our attention on that- it has the ability to bypass the thinking mind, allowing us to stay with the felt sense in the body. Because we aren’t engaged in defending, or blaming, or the other ways we shut down around our feelings- the breath is able partner with our nervous system, helping us to flush out some of the emotional bracing or baggage that we might be carrying. Shifting stuck emotional energy facilitates the release of strong emotions like anger and grief in their pure, felt form. Most people describe feeling softer, more spacious and less burdened.

*All you need in order to participate is a computer or phone with the zoom video application. All are welcome!  Please do read through the list of circumstances when breathwork is contraindicated and assure yourself that you are healthy and able to participate.
