Ben Greenfield (@bengreenfieldfitness) is a biohacker, human body and brain performance coach, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, professional Spartan athlete, anti-aging consultant, speaker and author of the New York Times Bestseller “Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health and Life”. Ben is a Spartan SGX certified coach, was voted as NSCA’s Personal Trainer of the year in 2008, and was named by Greatist as one of the top 100 Most Influential People In Health And Fitness in 2013 and 2014. 

Recently, I had the profound opportunity to hold space in a transformative breathwork session for Ben and his friend Angelo while they were in Sedona, Arizona. I was so impressed by their devotion to lead a conscious business with their heart, and to find new ways to prioritize more balance play and quality time for their family & friends, while bringing high frequency supplements and resources for optimized health to the masses. If all corporate chiefs did their strategy sessions this way, the world would be in a better place.

During this transformative experience, Ben experienced some deep business insights and profound physiological breakthroughs similar to what one might harness from plant medicine journeys or psychedelics.

“I’ve experienced many, many breathwork benefits firsthand (you can check out my breathwork experiences in my podcasts and articles listed in the Summary section at the end of this article), frequently weave breathwork into my daily routine, and even recently traveled to Sedona for a second time (you can watch a recap of my first breathwork visit to Sedona in this video) with Kion co-founder and CEO, Angelo Keely to undergo a transformative breathwork session with my friend Anahata Ananda, whom you may remember from the podcast episode “Magic Chocolate, Holotropic Breathwork, Grounding, Earthing, Vortexes, Crystals & More With Shamangelic Healer Anahata Ananda.

During this transformative experience, both Angelo and I experienced some deep business insights and profound physiological breakthroughs similar to what one might harness from plant medicine journeys or psychedelics. (You can subscribe to my podcast here for free to listen to our upcoming episode this Thursday for all the nitty-gritty details of our journey with Anahata.) So, naturally, I just had to ask Anahata if she would come back on the podcast to share more about the work she does, to which she obliged—and also offered to write today’s article for your reading pleasure.”

When Ben asked me to share more about the work I do on his website, I immediately began writing. In my recent article Breath vs. Psychedelics: How Breathwork Journeys Can Release DMT For A Psychedelic-Like Experience, Clear Emotional Trauma & Re-Energize Your Body, featured on Ben’s website, you’re going to discover how breathwork actually works, what a breathwork journey looks and feels like, how breathwork can lead to healing and spiritual awakenings, how to get started on your own breathwork journey, and so much more!

I was also on Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast in April 2018 after his first visit to Sedona with me, so be sure to check it out! We chat about his journey, Shamanic healing, Sedona vortexes and chocolate.
