Breath Medicine is a powerful connected breath tool, aimed at giving access to an embodied present moment awareness, coherent and free from the effects of the past. Unravel and unwind strains, tension and trauma with this alignment of breath and universal consciousness.
As we breathe without pause, energy, sensations, emotions and memories awaken to be felt, seen, heard, integrated and liberated. Become aware, that we are so much more then we think we are, breathe away thoughts of separation and limitation and connect with source. Feel the original life force of your own being as expanding light, love and freedom.
This modality is the result of 26 years of practicing connected breathwork such as Rebirthing and Transformational Breath work married together with 5 element systems, Taoist, Tantric and shamanic wisdom.

This rare opportunity to be with master therapist Jeremiah Abrams will serve as an initiation to your own depth inquiry, a journey to the heart of your personal narrative, to release old patterns, beliefs and stories. There is profound healing and freedom when those aspects of ourselves that have been in shadow can be witnessed and validated.
All of us long to have more love in our lives. But if we ignore the core wounds within us that are responsible for the obstacles to love in our lives, we remain caught in conditioned patterns of failure in intimacy.
Healing the wounds of love begins with a seeing and an accepting of the unfinished in us, a pursuit of the deeper truth of what has happened thus far on our Earthwalk and then, spontaneously, a realisation of what we have made of these experiences.
