DPX NY Breathwork Circle- Full Moon Breathwork Meditation

  • Space 2 Meditate 28 West 27th Street, 7th Floor New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

Full Moon Breathwork

The moon has always been a guide in Buddhism.  The Buddha was said to have been born, offered his first teaching, achieved enlightenment and passed away all on full moons.  Whatever beliefs you have about this, bring whatever intention or wish is "full" within you to class and we'll breathe with that.   

Strengthening our connection to the earth and our ability to stay grounded allows us to raise the energy in the body through the active breath.  The stability and groundedness allows the breath to do its work of clearing and shifting what is ready to be released and birthing new plans and intentions into the world.   We then rest in our intentions and the aliveness of the body during the integration cycle- allowing the silence and spaciousness to give rise to insight and  understanding.

Sliding Scale Exchange $20-35.  There will be a basket in class to offer contributions beyond the $20 base.

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.
