About Shiran’s Breathing journey:
Breathing Journey is a way of experiencing being present through special guided breathing techniques that increase the flow of energy and cause consciousness to expand beyond our known limits.
Experiencing this magnificent state of consciousness allows us to get in touch with our subconscious patterns and release many negative emotions and limiting beliefs.
While experiencing a traumatic event, our defense mechanisms suppress emotions and some of the memories related to them.
This is a survival mechanism designed to buffer the painful experience to a level that allows us to function and not “crash”.
However, we eventually pay a price for suppressing the emotions and memories. We become numb and lose contact with our natural state of being, a state of bliss.
Since it’s not common in our society to encourage powerful
emotional release in daily life, it has become more important than ever to take the time and space to do so in a safe environment.
About Wim Hof Method:
Wim Hof has developed a method characterized by simplicity and effectiveness. The effects and applicability of this method are being investigated by various scientific institutes, including Radboud University. Initial results have shown that the method affect the autonomic nervous system and the immune system. This means that application of the Wim Hof Method (WHM) may be of particular importance in the fields of public health, sports and at many other levels.
The method is based on three components that reinforce each other. These three components include: breathing techniques, the training of mindset/focus, and gradual exposure to the cold. Although there are various methods that separately deal with either breathing techniques, the training of mindset/concentration or exposure to the cold, no other technique, as far as we know, is based on the interactive basis between these components. It is the very interaction of these components that appear to provide proof of the positive effects on the body, as shown by several scientific studies (Kamler, 2009; Groothuis et al., 2010; Kox et al., 2012; Kox et al., 2014). During the workshop, the theory behind each of the components will be discussed and the importance of the interaction between the components will be explained. Next, you will experience the method by practicing the techniques, based on the philosophy of Wim:
‘Feeling is understanding’
“Breathing consciously is a master key.
It can open your heart to unconditional love.
It can open your mind to understand what’s holding you back.
It can guide you into letting go and experiencing your natural state.
It can show you what real freedom is.”
We will practice conscious breathing,
conscious relating, and meditations from Tantric and Sufi traditions.
We will learn about the importance of boundaries and how they actually
help us to experience freedom.
As a “side effect” you will probably meet friends for life,
members of the tribe. We aren’t only offering the work during the retreat,
we are expanding a community that will support you in your journey.
