BZen Breathwork

Breathwork is a powerful ally in helping one to release stuck emotions in the body.

Breathwork is a powerful ally in helping one to release stuck emotions in the body.

According to my teacher and mentor, Anahata Ananda, Deep Shamangelic breathing has been found to facilitate profound emotional releases, open new channels of awareness and clear toxicity in the body. This sacred journey incorporates guided visualization, deep shamanic breathing, vibrational sound, soulful music, energy healing, Shamanic tools, crystal therapy and light body expansion techniques to facilitate a personal Sacred Shamanic Journey into the depths of one’s soul and BEYOND! Due to the intense and powerful nature of Shamangelic Breathwork, facilitators require comprehensive training and experience.”

Anahata Ananda

“We need to pay special attention to the breath, firstly because the respiratory system is the only major system in the body which is usually involuntary, but which can also be voluntarily controlled. We need to pay special attention to the breath secondly, because it is a very powerful and centrally important system. Somewhat like the flywheel in a car engine, the breath regulates all the other autonomic systems, including brain function. As yogis have known for centuries, controlling and changing the way we breathe, can go a long way towards getting us unstuck from the debilitating effects of central nervous system overactivation.”
Dr. Susan Kriegler

Many people ask what a breathwork ceremony looks like. Although each practice is different, and each person’s experience is relative, here is a rough idea:

  • Throughout the session we may play instruments, spray scents into the space (as long as the participants agree to that), offer hands-on assists (with consent), encourage you to keep going, to express, and allow you space and time to journey and feel.
  • We’ll create a specific altar based on the theme of the practice, moon cycle, astrological occurrences, or individual person.
  • We have a specific playlist for the journey based on the intention.
  • We’ll set intentions together so that we can fully understand your intention of the journey.
  • Participants begin by laying down and breathing deeply into the belly.
  • After the session is complete, we spend some time journaling and allowing time to share on your experience/main take-aways. The breathwork lasts for about one hour with 30 minutes of intention setting and 30 minutes of integration for a full 2 – 2.5 hour experience.

I have been personally transformed and have healed so much thanks to receiving Breathwork from many facilitators (above names aforementioned, plus others) and I cannot wait to continue to share this practice!”

A few benefits of breathwork may include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Detoxification
  • Improved respiratory capacity
  • Immune support
  • Increased energy
  • Improved sleep
  • Increased emotion regulation and emotional intelligence
  • Overcome limiting beliefs
  • Energetic clearing
  • Mystical experiences and access to higher states of consciousness

It’s truly an honor to be a facilitator of an experience like this. With the deep shifts I’ve had in these ceremonies I am a direct testament to the amount of healing potential this practice has. The breath is a direct vehicle for trauma release.

Trauma doesn’t always have to mean obvious traumas such as war, death, sexual abuse, violence, etc. Less obvious causes of trauma can be a minor car accident, being lost in a strange place, moving homes, changing schools, being teased, loss of a pet, hurtful comments, rejection, a breakup, etc. Trauma comes in many forms and every human has experienced some form of trauma in their lifetime (in my opinion). BZen breathwork and embodiment is a great place to explore and to assist in releasing these experiences from the physical body.

In the least, breathwork is an incredible detox for the body and brain! If you are curious about receiving a ceremony for you or a few loved ones, I would be honored to hold space. Feel free to reach out! Sessions are offered in person and online.

“I knew that I was due for some spiritual healing when I signed up for a session with Brittany. The virtual breathwork ceremony with Brittany really helped foster loving feelings and I loosened up so much after processing a lot of emotions. Preparing an altar and a sacred space in my own home was a great first step for me getting into the mood of healing. When we began the breathwork my body started to release all that it had been holding onto. Even online, Brittany’s ability to guide the process was extremely helpful. I experienced a huge release of locked up pain during the first ten minutes— Brittany was present the whole time and encouraged me to let go of unwanted energy. It was as if I released and processed a wave of heartache/anxiety and filled up the new space in my body with the awareness of love. Brittany’s guidance made me feel safe, with direction, and pushed me further than I would have gone by myself. To have a loving guide to lead me onto a path that I didn’t know how to get on by myself was key to me experiencing the transformation of my energy.”

““I was not sure how it would translate in a virtual setting, but wanted to have an intentional evening for my roommate and me before the start of the new year. From the very beginning, every detail of the ceremony was intentional and clearly thought out. My roommate was blown away by how comfortable and welcoming Brittany was, not only to someone she had never met but for someone who had never done breathwork before. Brittany allowed her to connect to a vulnerable and safe space that was extremely rare for someone she had just met. Her personality was described as warm, inviting, non-judgmental, and safe. Even though we were halfway across the country from each other, Brittany set it up so that we were safely guided throughout the entire ceremony and felt as if she was right there with us. We could not have asked for a better experience, and a better guide to assist us on our journey. Brittany is incredibly gifted at what she does, and if you’re called to book a session with her, you will not regret one second of it. Doing deep internal work can at times be scary, but the safety and warmth of the container that Brittany provides is truly remarkable.”
