Breath is the finest gift of nature. Be grateful for this wonderful gift.

What is Shamanic Breathwork? 

Shamanic Breathwork ® is a powerful healing modality that is used in working with Wild:ness. It is the quickest way to get out of our mind’s way and reconnect with our self, dropping from the mind, and our image of self, and into the body. With Shamanic Breathwork, you are transported by the breath into an altered state of consciousness. There, you are able to remember trapped emotions and traumas, as well as awaken your imaginal cells and future-selves. 

During the Shamanic Breathwork process, you may be transported to a blissful state; or have a starring role in a movie; or equally be able to release years of pent up anger, rage, grief and frustration. Others may have a very ecstatic experience; and others experience a deep sense of knowing.  It is possible to experience the full range of human-ness within a journey. No two Shamanic Breathwork journeys are the same.  

This powerful breathwork methodology inspires individuals to Awaken the Shaman Within™, reconnecting with their own inner healer, and leads you along the path to reclaiming your Wild:ness

Your Shamanic Breathwork journey is led by a trained facilitator, and accompanied by chakra-attuned music. During a breathwork journey, you may receive focused energy or bodywork, recover lost soul parts or release unwanted energies. Shamanic breathwork is highly experiential. Each individual’s inner experience brings gains of healing, unique wisdom, and a deeper connection to the Self. No journey is complete without the Shakti art process, and the all-important individual integration. 


Created by Linda Star Wolf of Venus rising Association for Transformations, Shamanic Breathwork “honors and blends the timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with the emerging new paradigm methods of healing and teaching. It functions as the rainbow bridge between these two worlds honoring the best of both worlds while creating a bridge for body, mind, heart, and spirit.” 

“Wildness reminds us what it is to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.
— Terry Tempest Williams
