BREATHE DEEPER HEAL DEEPER Underneath it all… Once we allow the unheard parts of ourself to be seen and expressed, the energy to be unblocked, the tensions to be released.. we experience a clearing. underneath it all where our true selves lie. bringing us closer to flow state. we try to pay attention to staying heart centred. staying present. staying with the breath. here we drink cacao. we soothe. we integrate. we share. and we dare to dream. You can learn more about the process by reading the following article, - "How I healed emotional wounds through Breathwork": www.ourgom.com/tips-for-integrating-old-emotional-wounds-breathwork/ Limited to 15 places so RSVP essential, payment in advance is £60 via www.aho.community or via meet-up. Further information and reviews www.facebook.com/breathceremony/?pnref=story Please note; this is a powerful ceremony where setting the intention to participate can in itself raise spiritual/emotional issues to the surface to be cleared, similar to plant medicine except totally natural! My advice is to stay present and bring any headaches, or feelings of sickness to the ceremony for clearing. It is advisable to gain the absolute most from the ceremony to prepare the day leading up to the event by eating light and vegan. contact lisa on [masked] for any questions. Looking forward to breathing with you. Aho.
The Healing Pathways in association with Aho are honoured to offer Munay-Ki Initiation Ceremony, The Foundation Rites. MUNAY-KI INITIATION CEREMONY DAY 1 The Munay-Ki are the Nine Great Rites of Initiation into the Medicine Way. They are also a series of nine empowerment rites based on the initiatory practices of the Q’ero shamans of Peru, as taught by anthropologist Alberto Villoldo. It is a modern form of transmitting the initiation empowerments of the Q’ero, and are based on their traditional initiation ceremonies. “Munay” in Quechua means “love”, together with “ki”, from the Japanese word for energy, combine to give the meaning: energy of love. The Munay-Ki are nine rites of connection and empowerment that heal us and transform our human energy field into that of homo luminous. Munay-Ki helps clear and heals the wounds of the past.

We will help to recognise the difference between a normal dream and a lucid dream and how to use the dreams as a source of answers, more clarity and direction in our life. We will do 3 practical immersion in our subconscious state of mind to open the channels of our psyche and share different techniques to put in practice at home to continue developing the ancient art of dreams. It is a practice that helps people to go smoother and more conscious to the state of dreaming, it could be seen as a very vivid visualization on which we start a dialogue, an interaction with our subconscious state of mind. This is a practice based in the Transcendental Meditation and the Ancient Mayan traditions. We will use Mugwort (Artemisa vulgaris) plant to help us to go deeper in the Lucid Dreaming practice. Workshop accompanied by Ricardo Goni (Mexico), Mayan healer, Shipibo practitioner, Gestalt and Music psychotherapist. Lucid dreaming helps with: * Opening a clear and honest dialogue to see what is going on in our subconscious mind and listening our intuition. *Becoming more perceptive and aware of our selves and others. *Exploring and letting our creativity be part of our lives. *Working with our personal (emotional) unfinished business. *Increasing physical health as a result of body relaxation and breathing techniques. *Discovering and developing the whole potential that we have as human beings. This practice is not suitable for people under antidepressants, anxiolitics or with psychiatric conditions. Please bring comfortable clothes, a little bottle of water. Cost £30. Limited to 12 places.

Ricardo started having unusual experiences while dreaming since he was 13 years old, it is when he started exploring different techniques and spiritual paths, he practices Transcendental Meditation since he was 14 years old, Ricardo found that the Ancestral Traditions have an organic relation with lucid dreaming practices.
