WHAT TO EXPECT ~ Holotropic Breathwork is a process using breath and music in a safe environment for deep healing, spiritual connection and deeper connection with the self. With Holotropic Breathwork each participant gains direct access to his or her own inner healing wisdom. In your HB session, this wisdom brings you a unique and ideal combination of experiences that can include aspects of your personal history and birth, as well as psychological death/rebirth, and an infinite array of transpersonal experiences. Through breathing, a specially designed musical journey and a safe, supportive setting with a trained staff of facilitators, you experience a true expanded state of awareness, allowing deep self-exploration and personal transformation. Mandala drawing and a group processing of the experience will be important integrative elements of this one day Holotropic process. Contraindications for Holotropic Breathwork are heart problems, high blood pressure, severe mental illness, recent surgery or fractures, acute infectious illness, epilepsy, glaucoma, pregnancy. Advanced Registration is required.

Shamanic Drumming Circle

WHAT TO EXPECT ~ A Shamanic Drumming Circle is a place to come with friends, catch up over a cuppa and then connect in an authentic way. This is a particular type of drumming, using a shamanic drum. A steady 4-7 beats per second, will induce theta brain waves to enable us to journey into non ordinary states to retrieve healing, insights and wisdom for ourselves and our community.

All welcome, no experience in shamanic journeying or drumming is necessary. If you have a shamanic drum I welcome you to bring it along. You would need to bring a pillow and blanket.

This is a non profit event, costs are to cover venue and refreshments. If you would like to know more about shamanic drumming, or if have any questions, just drop Fiona a line on safehaventranspersonal@gmail.com or give a buzz on 087 2989801.

Ecstatic Journey

WHAT TO EXPECT ~ We gather and sit in circle at 7pm sharp to centre ourselves and connect in with each other.  We do a round of introductions, our name, how we are (as much or as little as you want to share). I will explain the process a little and then I connect in to formally open sacred space. 

The Ecstatic Journey starts with music for the movement (dance) section.  This lasts about 20 minutes.  For the breathing section, with the music still playing you are invited to lie down and connect with your breath, this lasts about 5 minutes. 

The music stops and I will begin drumming and we will drop into a Shamanic Journey for approx. 20 minutes.  At the end we will come back and sit in circle and share our experiences to help ground and integrate them.

Nervous about dancing?  I use the words movement to music as opposed to dace because very often I hear, “I am not able to dance”, “I’m too self conscious” or “I’m not good at dancing”.  The movement/dance part can be sitting on the floor and feeling the vibration of the music while stretching.  It can be swaying gently, being still, jumping or vigorously shaking, playing with rhythm and timing, skipping, dancing your favourite moves.  It is not meant to look any particular way.  We are encouraged to allow the music, your body and emotions to guide how you move.  People are drawn to close their eyes and drop into their own experience.  It is a profound experience when we get out of our head and into our body and give the thoughts and emotions their time to move and be, in a safe space of compassion and non judgement.
