A story with sharing made possible by a life changing modality we all know as breathwork 🙌🏻 I am an incredible human being ❤️ The biggest accomplishment of the last few years of my life has been coming to actually believe it. Before that, I struggled to receive kind words and compliments about how people saw me and the work that I did. Whenever given a compliment, I would immediately deflect it back to the giver and tell them how amazing "they" were. I didn't realize the extent of my challenge until one day, a few friends sitting in a circle shared their reflections of me as a human being at the same time. I had never been showered in so much positive feedback before. All I could do was recoil. Receiving it was a massive challenge.I don't even know where it comes from. My parents and extended family showered me with love and acknowledgement throughout my childhood. But there's an imprint in there somewhere that didn't fully believe how incredible I am as a human and how worthy I am of adoration and love. Recognizing this pattern after all these years presented an incredible opportunity to work on it consciously. I'm sharing this story because I've worked with so many people who are running on this same old distorted and outdated narrative. Now, when I receive a compliment or praise, I use it as an opportunity to really soak it up and deeply receive it at a cellular level.I can honestly say that breaking this pattern has opened up the world to me in ways I could never have imagined. Abundance, prosperity, life purpose, adventure, and opportunities began pouring in from every direction. Now, I'm proud to say that the love I have for myself is in direct alignment with the love I'm so blessed to receive from so many ❤️ From personal experience, I firmly believe that loving ourselves fully is the key to unlocking all the richness that God and life have to offer. So yes, I AM INCREDIBLE & I AM WORTHY - and I'll spend the rest of my days helping as many people as I can to remember that they are too. Believe it. ❤️
This is your entry point into a hyper-learning environment primed for maximum growth and transformation. You’ll find the tools, the techniques, and more than enough motivation to use breathwork to heal every part of your body and your life. The only thing I can’t do for you is breathe. What I can do is tell you to do this: - Do the 5 Day Breathwork Challenge - Sign up for a minimum of 1 deep dive Transformational Breathwork Journey/month - Do the Morning Breath Activation practice EVERY DAY - Hold each other accountable to show up as your best selves - Support, motivate and inspire each other If we do the practices, if we commit to the shifts, if we build a strong community then we cannot fail to create a better world for ourselves and each other. Let’s get it! Brian
@Beth Rouintree Pritchett I love your enthusiasm and desire to help your clients asap. You go girl -and remember to breathe in between journeys! A meditation teacher of mine once said “the magic is in the space between the thoughts”. On a personal level after just being in the course a few weeks, I am realizing that for me, it’s not only the space between the thoughts; the magic also lies in the pause between the breaths, the actions and the doing for us human BEINGS💕
I'm wondering who else out there might be a student of Dr.Joe? I have been doing his meditations daily for almost 2 years now and have been to 3 of his amazing events. Attending his events are what reminded me how powerful breathwork can be and inspired me to start following Brian & Breath Masters on Instagram. Brian's posts kind of blew me how they were so in alignment with the Dr.Joe work! The rest is history 😉 and I am currently in the January certification cohort. I'm very curious to know how you might be using or considering using Dr. Joe's work in your breath work coaching and vice-versa, as they are so very complementary.
Yes I love that as well Timo, even though I'm not a scientist, it fully resonates. I was also very drawn in that Dr. Joes meditations are based on sensing and feeling -transient hypofrontality, not visualizing - pre-frontal cortex. I went to a couple of Deepak Chopra retreats many years ago and did his meditations a half an hour every morning and night daily for several years and only felt like out of that 30 min. I only got into the quiet space for maybe 5 minutes. Visualizations just get my monkey mind going. I can also say that even though his events seem a bit pricey - the value they give you is priceless. Doing deep meditations with 1800 people is an amazing experience and as a veteran event producer of 30 years (we had Deepak talk at several of our Wellness Conference/Expos in the mid 2000's) the production is superb - from the lighting, music, customer service, community follow-up and most of all his teachings. Dr. Joe is always looking to reach the next level with every event - kind of like Brian and AJ. In fact, lately I've been describing Brian as the Dr. Joe of Breathwork!
Glad to see you here Franky - highly recommended if you ever have the opportunity. It's very much in alignment and complementary with Breath Masters. Here's the upcoming schedule open to people that have never done any of his events: April 17-3 Nashville Tennessee Weeklong June 19-25 Cancun Mexico Weeklong August 7-13 Vienna Austria Weeklong November 3-5 Basel Switzerland Progressive Weekend December 4-10 Cancun Mexico Weeklong EVENT REGISTRATION TIPS: Visit https://drjoedispenza.com/collections/in-person-events to see his calendar. If you want to register for an upcoming event, sign up for an account ahead of time so you get notified when it goes on sale - usually around 2 months prior. On the date of the sale, get on his website event page about 10-15 minutes before the actual time posted i.e. if it says 10am be ready at 9:45am, and then keep refreshing the page until the link says it's available. Once you register, they will send you a hotel link for the weeklongs. It's a good idea to get your hotel room right away as well, as those sell-out. I know here in the USA and Mexico, these events often sell out in the first 10-15 minutes. If it sells out before you register, it's always worth getting on the waiting list. You never know!💖
"They" say we are what we eat, but wouldn't it also make sense that we are what we breathe. I'm sure that a breathwork journey out in nature would have a different effect than that same journey taken at a busy intersection. Studies have shown that our indoor air quality is sometimes worse than what we experience outside, yet most people do their breathwork inside. I'm awaiting the arrival of a negative ion generator, which should give me nature quality, mountain top air in the space where I do most of my breathwork and journeys. I'll keep you posted.
Great point, Emile. Let us know how the negative ion generator works for you.
Hello Everybody 🍀 Good evening 🙏 joining from mountains of tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. I am a spiritual ecologist and a farmer by my love for nature. Wishing you all lots of love and joy of life, With an aspirations to meet and know you all over this space I come to being. Lots joy Lots love 🍀
Hey guys I’m reading the unteathered soul atm and I couldn’t reccomend it enough! Really amazing way to explain the mind and it’s imprisonments is has on your reality if you allow it. Anyone else read this book? If so anyone got any book recommendations in this genre ? Thank you 🙏
Love all of Michael Singer's books! I also did an online course with him last fall through SoundsTrue.com, Living from a Place of Surrender. It was an 8 part in-depth course with Michael doing around one hour lectures. Highly recommended. It really helped me integrate his teachings into my life.💗
@ReNae Schramm Wise guru! I'm still working on wrapping my mind around that.
I just finished reading the book "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art" by James Nestor. It was on Brian's reading list I think in week 2 of the current cohort. It's fantastic. One of the reviews on the book jacket says "It will change the way you breathe". This is so true!! Since reading it, I have become much more mindful of my breath. I discovered I have been a mouth breather, which I didn't think I was at the beginning of our course. I tried mouth taping and now do it every night. I have obstructive sleep apnea and have been using a CPAP device nightly for almost 3 years. After taping for a couple of nights with the CPAP, I decided to try not using it and just taping. I did that for about 10 days straight and felt like I was sleeping as well as I was with the CPAP. After reading deeper into the book and learning more about the value of CPAP's (I will take all the oxygen I can get), I am back to using the machine with taping. The difference now is I don't feel chained to the CPAP, which is huge for me, as I am a pretty free spirit. I now know I can go camping, on vacation or whatever and do well with just mouth taping. I feel like eventually taping and other practices the author (and Brian) recommends will heal the sleep apnea and help my sleep be deeper and more restorative. This work we are doing is so amazing - not only for others, but just as much for ourselves!💖💖💖
@Joyce Harris Thank you Joyce. I feel like I am still in discovery mode with OSA. I see my sleep doctor in a few months and will discuss it with her as well.
@Désiré Tuyishemeze If you send me your mailing address, I will send you the book. Every breath worker should read this and have it in their library. I plan to buy several copies to have on hand that I can gift to people who express an interest and will read it.
Head's up! I just got notified that a few last minute rooms opened up for James Nestor's, author of "Breath", retreat with Chuck McGeeIII in Costa Rica March 11-18. They will open up the rooms to the public tomorrow March 1st. If I could pull this off right now, I would in a heartbeat! It looks amazing. https://www.mrjamesnestor.com/retreat-march-2023-bonus
Before I started this breath work journey I did not sleep well at all. I rarely woke up feeling rested. I would wake up a during the night and it would feel like hours before I could fall back asleep and then my alarm was going off. I decided to go back and check my watch for my sleep patterns to see how they had changed. I wasn't waking up as tired most mornings so I must be sleeping better. 11/25/22- I was just beginning my breath journey and my deep sleep % was 23%. 1/16/23- 2 months later and my deep sleep % was 43%. 2/13/23- my deep sleep % was 52%! While I know that my watch is not 100% accurate, there is definitely improvement in my deep sleep numbers. I don't recall a night in the last month that I've woken up and been unable to get back to sleep. And I haven't felt the need to prop my eyelids open with toothpicks after lunch! Proof is in the pudding, as they say. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a sign I received on a little blue sticky note. The Universe Talking. A couple days ago my husband and I went to lunch at a local Chinese Buffet, my fortune cookie read, "Better to do something imperfectly than do nothing perfectly." Well I've been trying to have a "perfect" playlist for my first guided journey, and while I'm trying to perfect said playlist I'm actually getting nothing done. - It's not perfect yet so I can't guide a journey yet- ... blah. Just one of the ways I hide, behind "perfection". I know full well that perfection is an illusion that keeps growth just out of reach. So within the next week I will guide my first journey. I will stop hiding behind perfection and put myself out there, because the only way to get great is to do it, make the mistakes and do it again, and again, building the skills and knowledge, and faith in my own ability I need to BE great.
Thanks for sharing and what a blessing. I have similar sleep issues that seem to be a bit better since starting this program, but still have a ways to go. I'm just grateful things are moving in the right direction!
It really works. I purchased some medical tape on the advice of @Brian Kelly and attached it to my face as in the attached photo. Woke up after 7 hours sleep feeling really refreshed. I guess I was a closet sleep mouth breather. (I breathe through my nose during the day). I will continue to do this faithfully for the coming month to train myself that it is nose only while sleeping.👃
@Jenny Faulkner Some nights are better than others. Last night was good though! I feel like I'm really stirring up the pot with not only breathwork, but my morning Dr. Joe Dispenza meditations, nuerofeedback and acupuncture. I also am taking a break from coffee for at least 3 weeks (in the middle of week 3) so it's hard to say what's doing what. The mouth taping is a big one though.
@Krystal Jackson Wow Krystal, thanks for sharing. It might feel a little weird at first and nothing says you have to do it all night. Maybe just gradually work into it. It's simple yet can be challenging for us mouth breathers, as it's probably a life long habit. Like Brian says though, everything worthwhile is on the other side of discomfort. Keep us posted please 💖
Hi lovely community, I've created a little video for you on the role of the pelvic floor in breathing as well as some exercises to asses pelvic floor function and how you can improve it's performance in breathing. This video just scratches the surface. If you're someone that struggles with any kind of incontinence whether it's stress or urge incontinence or any kind of pelvic organ prolapse or diastasis recti, working with balanced strength and flexibility in the pelvic floor becomes extra important in your healing process. Word of caution, you don't just want to do kegels if you struggle with any of this. Kegels can make things worse if they're done on a pelvic floor that's tight and weak (which is super common) so learning to release it through breathing, which this video shows you, is the starting point to strengthening it. Also, I talk about stress incontinence in the video. I actually meant to say urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is when you leak urine with a sneeze, laughing etc. Urge incontinence is when you feel like you have to urinate often but not that much comes out or the flow stops and then you realize you still have more to go. Urge incontinence can be a sign of a tight/restricted pelvic floor. A well functioning pelvic floor also allows you to breathe much deeper and remember the deeper you breathe, the deeper you'll go in your journeys so it's well worth it. https://youtu.be/UVGN9aM5UHk
@Monica Benedetto My guess would be a lot, including me. That's why I am wondering if I have a weak pelvic floor. I've been working on hitting the breath for almost 2 years now and still haven't gotten it.
@Ivana Catanese Go to drjoedispenza.com. He just released an audio called Inspire VI with 10 tracks that he coaches you through the breath that you can purchase.It's excellent. He also gives a really detailed explanation of the science behind it in his book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself". I'm sure there are plenty of YouTubes out there as well. It's also called "Pulling the Mind out of the Body" breath.
Hey guys, I did create this playlist. Every song is included in the "The Purge Breathwork Journey". If you want to use it, go ahead https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4CmreE8AbGeiGdapdTkrET?si=c90576d742064580
Wow thank you Andres. So generous. I loved that playlist when I did the Journey. So grateful.

Marina -This is priceless! I had to take screenshots of it. I appreciate your posts and all you add to this community.
Hi-I am new here and I'm going to go out of my comfort zone here and say that I am really challenged by the social media aspect of the Breath Masters Academy. I am in the current certification cohort and I am over 60 (closer to 70!). I made a conscious decision to back off social media several years ago because I found it to be too much of a time suck for the value I was getting out of it. I do have my FB account and Instagram, mostly to follow my son. I am grateful for Instagram for connecting me to Brian and BreathMasters. In general, I am not a screen gal-I don't have a TV, rarely watch a movie and use a computer primarily for work, online classes/zoom and occasional YouTube videos. I'd much rather be experiencing life in-person. In fact, my work and passion is live event production. If any of you out there can relate and have any insights, thoughts or ideas on how to navigate this challenge and still get the most out of the Breath Masters Academy, I will be grateful.
@Eline Postma Great advice! Thank you Eline!
@Athene Grace Absolutely Athene. I feel so honored and blessed to be part of such a wonderful community. I now jump on in here whenever I have a few extra minutes. It seems like every time I do, I learn something new or connect with someone amazing. Thank you!
you may also find this Book interesting. In line with. .. Breathing and the jaw position and influence of this is also reflected in here. interesting for an even more complete picture...☺️
Thank you for this resource. I’m looking forward to learning more. I am thinking that this may be the root cause of chronic neck pain and sleep apnea/CPAP I struggle with at times.
@Vanessa Naja Excellent book. I just started it and it's fascinating. I started mouth taping 2 nights ago and already feel a difference in my sleep. I working on being more mindful about nose breathing during the day. Who knew!!! So grateful for this opportunity to become a breath master and be connected with this amazing The Breath Revolution Community. 💗
WOW... last night before bed, i did the trauma breathwork meditation... what came out of my mouth in that time, blow my mind.. alot of f@ck you and other profanity, the tears and release.. I felt like a brand new person... Im not new to breathwork however, this isn't something that I have experienced previously.. Thank you Brian..
Good afternoon from Washington State (westside) Honored to be a part of the Breathwork Revolution and part of an amazing community of likeminded change agents bring positive transformation in our own lives first and then share it with the world. I will hold space, love and positive energy for each of you on your journey into ourselves.
Hi Robert - I live in Southern Oregon - Ashland by the California border. Nice to connect with you, neighbor!
Hi friends...I am thrilled to connect with breathworkers from all over the world who are committed to transforming themselves and the world. I was inspired to sign up for the BreathMasters Academy that starts this Sunday because I see it as a powerful tool that can serve myself and others throughout my life. I am 67, a former acupuncturist and most recently an event manager/coordinator (which I love). I currently live in Oregon, USA. I have experienced breathwork several times over the last 20 years or so and have always been impressed how effective it is. The last two years, I have been an avid student of Dr. Joe Dispenze, meditating daily and have been to 3 of his amazing events. Dr. Joe's meditations reminded me of the power of breathwork and when when Brian's posts came thru my Instagram feed last summer, I was immediately attracted to Breath Masters and Brian's passion. Even though I work full-time, I wanted to take this opportunity to become certified so I can offer breathwork as a side hustle to my regular work. Eventually, when I am ready to stop working on events, I will have the knowledge, skills and experience to have breathwork serve as my retirement fund. I am looking forward to being part of this worldwide breathwork revolution!
