Breathe About Life

Living Burial Detox


A secluded beach sunrise internal detox in silence.

Slow down, regroup, recognize what is no longer  conducive to your set intention, allow the Earth

to return you to the rhythm of now.

With set intentions relaxation allows the letting go of what no longer serves our well-being. Using the pressure of moist sand to represent the pressures in life we've carried, you will be given a breathing response practice to help manage these pressures without thought or movement, while buried in the sand. As memories of the past and thoughts of the future start to overwhelm the mind, we recognize the body-mind-breathing relationship in how the three work as one together, managing the unpredictable feelings and moments we find ourselves in. 

Both African and Peruvian traditions of living burials have greatly influenced facilitating this sacred practice.
