ONSITE: Breathe: Recalibrate

With Linda Nicholls

April 28 - 30, 2023

Now is the time for you to tend to your own well-being.

Dedicate two delicious days heightening the naturally abundant healing intelligence of your body-mind and soul.

Through a series of powerful breathing and presence-ing experiences, you can find benefit in all dimensions of your life. Learn how to create opportunities to:

  • Cleanse
  • Detox
  • Fuel your inspiration
  • Release restrictive tensions
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Harmonize the flow of your emotions
  • Relax the bonds of suppression
  • Bring your heart and brain into coherence
  • Nourish, regulate and update your nervous system
  • Spark buried vitality
  • Ignite the luminosity of your spirit
  • Elevate the frequency of your resonance and state of consciousness
  • Commune with the depths of your being
  • Come home into your center/core
  • Expand your container for living


Expand your breath, expand your life!

Breathing together in a group with shared intention is exponentially more powerful than alone. Our brains and nervous systems have evolved to resonate exquisitely with the presence of others around us.


“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.”

– Thích Nhất Hạnh



In this program you will be offered physiological information, guidelines, coaching, and practice with a variety of forms of breathing. Come to Breathe! and rediscover your amazing, embodied being.
