Aubrey Marcus & Anahata Ananda on Shamanic Breathwork

In September I was invited to Austin, TX to facilitate a number of workshops for employees of Onnit, an innovative health, supplements, fitness, and lifestyle company owned by my dear friend and student, Aubrey Marcus. I had a fabulous week working with some really dynamic people and it was incredibly refreshing to provide my services to a company that is encouraging its employees to strive for optimal personal growth and providing them with outside-the-box wellness programs.

Aubrey Marcus is a man who is, as he describes it, “….a traveler on the path of human optimization….to live life at the bleeding edge of our potential.” He has been on countless adventures of the spirit and I first met him when he participated in a retreat I was facilitating in Sedona many years ago. He was deeply transformed by the breathwork journey that was part of the retreat curriculum, finding it to be as profound an experience as anything else he had encountered. Before I departed Austin, he asked me to be his guest on his weekly show called, Aubrey Marcus Podcast, so that we could have an in depth conversation about Shamangelic Breathwork from the perspective of both student and teacher.

In recent the years, there has been growing interest for using Breathwork as a means to reach a higher state of consciousness and for its profound healing capacity to quickly release traumas or heaviness. Due to the intensity of emotions that may be released during Breathwork sessions, it is always advisable to choose only experienced practitioners to guide sessions or ceremonies. I have worked with shamans and healers all over the world to hone my skills and expertise as a Breathwork facilitator and it is one my greatest passions to share this profound healing tool for deep transformation.

For anyone interested in learning more about breathwork, or for practitioners interested in adding Breathwork to their own practice, I invite you to watch the video version of this podcast  – HERE IS THE LINK We were able to speak at length about breathwork and the nature of its powers. Our conversation also moves organically into the subjects of conscious relationships and Shamanic Wisdom through animal and nature guides. It is my hope that anyone watching the video finds lessons you have been seeking.
