Over the past forty years, there has been a surge in the blending of ancient breathing techniques for health and awareness with contemporary therapeutic practices and processesâ€”for healing, personal growth and developingÂ expanded consciousness. Integrative Breathing has emerged as a unique, powerful modality for cultivating optimal physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual growth and well-being.Â In this workshop, participants will be guided in an Integrative Breathwork session that can relieve stress, support optimal wellness, access non-ordinary states of consciousness, and promote awareness and integration of presence, wisdom and love in our bodies, hearts, minds and souls: an experience of our Essence. Each personâ€™s process of self-discovery is unique. Here are examples of experiences that can occur: reducing tension and anxiety in the body promoting enhanced wellness and supporting the immune system and cells in the body healing past experiences, from conception through the life span becoming aware of and healing wounds, and dissolving defensive structures nourishing and developing our gifts and capacities opening our hearts to ourselves, others and all life accessing boundless states of consciousness attuning to universal/archetypal/Divine energies developing embodied love, wisdom and presence Connecting more deeply with an expanded experience of lifeâ€”whatever it is that is larger than our individual self and connects us.Â This experience will be facilitated by Jessica Dibb, founder, spiritual director, and principal teacher of Inspiration Consciousness School in Owings Mills, MD. She has designed and facilitated unique workshops, classes, and on-going trainings grounded in a highly integrated model of psycho-spiritual healing and development to support self-actualization. Her teachings assist people in cultivating consciousness through all stages of life. She also teaches nationally and internationally, including teaching Integrative Breathwork at the Psychotherapy Networker Conference for several years, and being a principal presenter at the International Enneagram Conference for over a decade.
