Exploring your Wisdom Breath Energies – March 2020, Sweden

Wake up your subtle body through breath, simple visualizations, and Tibetan yogic movements. This experiential weekend workshop explores the potential of your subtle body or sacred anatomy – composed of inner channels and chakras – as a powerful doorway into the open awareness of our inner refuge or “inner home.” Becoming familiar with each of the five wisdom breath-energies helps you open yourself to a vibrant awareness of your three channels and five chakras.

Through practices of breath and gentle movements, we will explore how our channels and chakras support us in connecting to the spaciousness and healing warmth of our inner refuge.

  • Utilize breath and simple visualization to align your body posture and familiarize yourself with your subtle body of channels and chakras.
  • Tune into the vibrancy of each of the five breath-energies, and how you can apply them to inner healing.
  • Apply subtle and simple body movements that can help guide the five breath-energies through your chakras, and awaken to your experiences.
  • Recognize how these experiences, when grounded in your inner home/refuge, enhance your sense of presence and wellbeing.
