Shame
Good morning beautiful ones. I am reaching out for support. Some days living with cptsd kicks my a**. I find myself in a self-saboatge shame cycle again and this one has been a doozy. Full of overwhelm, avoidance, self-deprecating self talk, binge eating and spending money recklessly. Laying on the couch doom scrolling. Ugh. I feel shame around not leading a single journey thus far. I did some Journaling this morning and my shame is wrapped around success, that's all that mattered to my ex. If I didn't succeed at something, and I never did in his eyes, I wasnt good enough, smart enough, worthy enough, deserving of anything. I wasn't wife enough or mother enough. I'd never get it right and I'd just mess things up for him to have to fix. Better of just staying in the background as a pretty little thing. Just a trophy wife. More that 20 years of manipulation, control, gaslighting, abuse. That's the garbage that still runs through my head nearly 10 years later. I'm free now but I'm not. I am so afraid of not succeeding. That fear becomes paralyzing. I numb out, that became my befault survival mechanism. Even though I'm in a safe, loving and supportive marriage now my brain doesn't always believe it. Ive been working on healing my mind, making better connections and associations for my mind. I know what I need to do but I can't get my mind, body and emotions together to do it. To that end I am asking for recommendations on journeys to help get me up and over this bump in the road. I haven't done a journey in a couple weeks and I definitely feel the difference. Maybe I need to revisit a journey I've already done? I overthink everything so help me keep it simple! I know I can't effectively use the medicine of breathwork to help others if I don't use it first to help myself. Thank you all for being the amazing human beings you are. ❤️

Not a "trend"
Here's a bit of copy I wrote for my social medias ..................,.............. Don't be fooled, breathwork isn't just a passing trend—it's a game-changer for your health! Imagine having the key to the single most important function of your body. The power to drive yourself towards vibrant health or steer clear of disease. That's what breathwork offers. 🌬️ Here's why you should be excited: Autonomic Nervous System: Your body's operating system, constantly guided by your breath, decides your actions. Discover how breath can influence this system and direct your health. Physiology: Oxygen and carbon dioxide are life's building blocks. Every process in your body depends on their balance. Breathwork is your secret weapon for managing these crucial elements. Stress: Stress is inevitable, but your response isn't. Breathwork equips you with a powerful strategy to conquer stress and boost your resilience. Emotions: Your emotional state affects your entire body. Anxiety and gratitude trigger distinct biochemical reactions. Breathwork connects your breath to your emotional well-being, offering a unique tool to take charge of your life. So, what are you waiting for? Breathwork isn't just a trend—it's a fundamental pillar of health waiting to transform your life. Schedule a FREE consultation now at https://calendly.com/scholarlychangeworks/20-minute-free-consultation-euphoric-holotropic and embark on your journey to euphoric well-being! 🌟🌬️ #BreatheWellLiveWell #healthandwellbeing #physicianhealthyself

Breathe ... by Thich Nhat Hanh
Breathe and understand you are alive. Breathe and understand that everything is helping you. Breathe and understand that you are the world. Breathe in compassion and breathe out joy. Breathe and be one with the air you breathe. Breathe and be one with the flowing river. Breathe and be one with the land you walk on, Breathe and be the one with the fire that shines. Breathe and discard the idea of birth and death. Breathe and you will see that impermanence is life. Breathe for your joy of being stable and serene. Breath so your pain flows. Breathe to renew all the cells of the blood. Breathe to renew the depths of consciousness. Breathe and live in the here and now. Breathe and everything you touch will be new and real.

Veterans and Law enforcement
I had the honor of guiding a veteran and former police officer in a journey today. His situation was so dire that his counselor came and sat in the other room in case he needed additional support. I wrote a journey based on a phrase I heard from the book "The Body Keeps the Score". Th title of my journey was That Was Then and This is Now. I am so happy to report that his heart was moved throughout the journey with tears and when we screamed together, I felt such deep pain release. He has signed up for a series of five journeys for those with severe PTSD. When his counselor saw him she said that he looked more calm than she had seen him in six years. So many courageous soldiers and police officers have lost the ability to deeply enjoy life and relax their vigilence. This is such an important demographic to reach out to. Many, like this man, are at the end of their rope. He wept long and hard today to just get some of his pain released. I look forward to meeting with him again. If you are stuck on journey themes, think about things you are learning from books you are reading and don't forget the magic of creating a series of journeys for particular demographics. We all know that this isn't a once and done kind of healing path. Providing support thematically could be a great benefit to your clients!

Earthing/Grounding Discoveries
I have recently gotten a few Grounding devices from Earthing(dot)com I have a smart watch that tracks my sleep throughout the night and my sleep score has traditionally ranged from 52% - 70% After sleeping on the mat/pillow, I've started waking up 20 minutes before my morning alarm with a sleep score from 87% - 93% which I've NEVER been able to do previously. I do the 12 minute activation "Getting Great" routine immediately upon waking and whereas I usually struggle with the first breath hold, I went all the way through without feeling any air hunger, And whereas my BOLT score is usually doing good around 35 seconds, this morning my bolt score was **55 SECONDS** Earthing Elite Sleep Mat Kit https://bit.ly/3OwEwdz Earthing Elite Pillow Cover Kit https://bit.ly/3DBrqFJ I'm going to invest in several of the yoga mats to use for individual and group 9D sessions Earthing® Yoga Mat... I've been looking forward to facilitating outdoor sessions, but the 106°+ Fahrenheit summer in Texas has rather put a hitch in my giddy up https://bit.ly/47cAEpp Boy howdy, LFGOOOO!!

Gentle internal earthquake
#Dec 5, 2022 Kundalini Awakening Journey with Reece Hi, I'm new at breathworks and on this site. Yesterday when I came in and clicked here and there I came across this journey. I calculated I would just be able to finish it before I had to get my son from school. It was a definite deep dive in, for a first session 🤣. I enjoyed it immensely though. So, I'm even more curious to see what the rest is like. For any incoming newbees, it would be handy to mention it's wise to not plan anything after for a while, as I was more floating than walking to that school 😎. Wonderful feeling though. Keep it up!

Breathwork Retreat w/ James Nestor & Chuck McGee: Costa Rica Oct. 28 - Nov.4
Would anyone like to go to this and share an eco-cottage that has twin beds? It's with James Nestor, the author of Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art (life changing book if you haven't read it) and Chuck McGee, one of Wim Hoff's original certified instructors. The room cost is $2499 per person and is ALL INCLUSIVE of food, lectures, moonlight, surf, and everything else except alcoholic beverages and optional massage services: https://www.mrjamesnestor.com/retreat?ss_source=sscampaigns&ss_campaign_id=63f957237b1bd718f5edcb04&ss_email_id=642b15cf364c8563c98344eb&ss_campaign_name=Breath+Retreat+Waitlist+Update+%7C+Oct%2FNov+2023+Costa+Rica&ss_campaign_sent_date=2023-04-03T18%3A18%3A53Z I am their Priority Wait List, which means I will have access to room registration 24 hours before they are released to the public. They will sending out a special Wait List access code to reserve all rooms on April 9, 2023 at 10am Pacific Time that I will send to you as soon as it comes so we can both register and request each other as room mates. I'm on a bit of a budget so this is the most economical room for single travelers. I would almost be willing to sleep in a tent to be at this amazing event! To me, it's very low priced for what you get. I've spent a lot more for week long events and still had to pay rooms, food etc. separately. Please message me ASAP if you are interested.

Study material for breathing coaches
Hey beautiful people, I just found this very detailed podcast of my hero Andrew Huberman (Neurobiologist at Stanford School of Medicine), which is bringing more deep knowledge and scientific studies about breathing, including some more tricks and techniques to use in different situations. It is definitely worth the 2 hours listening! Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4m_PdFbu-s&t=766s

Notion - tool to manage 10 weeks
I’ve heard @Brian Kelly mention he uses Notion to keep everything organized. I’ve just downloaded it and I see the possibilities are absolutely and gloriously endless! So instead of learning the tool from scratch and starting completely fresh, I’m asking to see if anyone has already made a template for the 10 week training! Like to help keep up with your progress - study materials/notes implementation, view deadlines for homework like writing my journey introduction, daily habits etc etc etc. I bought the full version so I can upload documents. Thanks in advance!

Highly Recommended Book for Anyone Who Breathes😉
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!💖💖💖

Hey Guys, I believe I was one of the first few to order the 9D equipment before the case was completed. I got my system and notice that the carrying case would come separately. It's been a couple of months and still no case. Any advise.

Speaker and Mic
Hey guys! This is more of a post for you functioning coaches. I have some concerns. 1. How do you deliver the message in a room with music (speaker and mic)? 2. What tools do you use to do that online that allow you to consistently share the music (Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, etc)? Loving this!
