Imagine a medicine inside your own body that can relieve stress, increase energy, heal trauma, and bring back lost pieces of your spirit-just by changing the way you breathe. Studies show long-term benefits for stress, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, sleep, and overall well-being. Ceremonial Breathwork is your path to healing and wholeness—a chance to take charge of your own well-being and embark on a journey of growth and balance.

What are the Chakras?

Picture seven vibrant energy centers within you, like powerful spinning wheels influencing your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being – these are your chakras. Yet, many experience imbalances, leading to confusion, low energy, and even depression. Now, envision awakening these chakras through special techniques like activation sounds, breathing methods, and specific movements. By doing so, you direct energy positively, fostering more positivity, peace, clarity, high energy, joy, balance, passion, and zest for life.

Studier visar långsiktiga fördelar för stress, ångest, depression, högt blodtryck, sömn och övergripande välbefinnande. Ceremoniell Andning är din väg till läkning och helhet – en chans att ta kontroll över ditt eget välbefinnande och ge dig ut på en resa av tillväxt och balans.

Vad är Chakras?

Föreställ dig sju livfulla energicentra inom dig, som kraftfulla snurrande hjul som påverkar din fysiska, emotionella, mentala och andliga välbefinnande – detta är dina chakran. Många upplever obalanser, vilket leder till förvirring, låg energi och till och med depression. Nu, föreställ dig att väcka dessa chakran genom speciella tekniker som aktiveringsljud, andningsmetoder och specifika rörelser. Genom att göra detta riktar du energi positivt, främjar mer positivitet, fred, klarhet, hög energi, glädje, balans, passion och livsglädje.

Event FAQs

About the location and how to get here..

Tzununá, Lake Atitlán, Guatemala. ‘The land of eternal spring’: beautiful, temperate weather, a spectacular setting, rich indigenous culture and a readymade conscious community. 


Across Tzununá and San Marcos, an engaged, conscious community has striven for years to perfect an alternative lifestyle, developing educational and wellness offerings for adults and children. To us, this is what stands out about The Seed – that, and the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us, deemed ‘the most beautiful lake in the world’ by Aldous Huxley.


 


You will find The Seed in Tzununá, a traditional Kaqchiquel village and alternative community with yoga, kirtans, a permaculture school and a smattering of health-food restaurants on the shores of landmark Lake Atitlan. Their neighbouring village, San Marcos, is renowned for its alternative community and spiritual classes, courses and events, plus an abundance of healers and practitioners, from massage to acupuncture, an esteemed Waldorf school and a second pioneering educational project. Around the lake, you’ll also find activities such kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and swimming, and an ease of access through boat travel, tuk-tuks and hiking trails.

I won't be able to be there the whole retreat, can I come anyways?

Of course! Just let us know at: info@ninamedicina.com

If I don't feel comfortable in taking part in something; do I still have to join?

We might in some moments challenge ourselves to sing and lead for the benefit of the practice, although you are as free as the birds fly!

I'm pregnant; can I still join?

Absolutely, please let us know as soon as possible!

Do I need to have any prior knowledge?

Comes as you are, Welcome!

What are the benefits of practicing transformational breathwork?

The benefits of practicing transformational breathwork are truly abundant. Just to scratch the surface, it's a powerful stress and anxiety reducer that guides your body into a state of deep relaxation. It's like a mental magnifying glass, increasing self-awareness and expanding your consciousness. Your mental clarity gets a boost and your emotional well-being blossoms. It's like a release valve for trauma and built-up energy, offering a refreshing sense of balance in your mind, body, and spirit.


Deep diaphragmatic breathing breathes life into your body, increasing oxygenation, helps with detoxification, and improving respiratory function. Tensions are released, circulation improves, and your immune system gets a boost. But this is just the icing on the cake! Transformational Breathwork is my go-to for releasing limiting beliefs and thought patterns that doesn't serve me anymore. It's like a mental spring cleaning that creates space for personal growth, empowerment, and transformational change. I have my daily breathwork practice to thank for who and where I am today - it has paved the way for my journey so far.

How does transformational breathwork affect the mind and body?

When you dive into transformational breathwork, get ready for a double dose of goodness. First, it's like a VIP ticket to deep relaxation. It's your body's way of hitting the reset button and activating those natural healing vibrations. And here's the trick - it's like giving your cells an oxygen boost, waking them up from the inside out.


Have you ever heard of the parasympathetic nervous system? Well, think of it as your inner chill guru. Transformational Breathwork gives it a friendly nudge, inviting a sense of calm that's like a warm hug for your mind. Mental clarity? Oh, yes, please. This practice flips the switch on that, helping you see things with a sharper focus. Now let's talk about the physical tension we tend to carry around. Transformational Breathwork is like a soothing balm. It loosens those knots of tension, releasing them as you breathe. And guess what? It's not just the body - emotional baggage gets a ticket out, too. So if you're ready to let go and feel lighter, this practice has your back, works for me every single time!

Can transformational breathwork help with stress and anxiety?

Absolutely, YES! Let me share this with you: Transformational Breathwork has become a dear friend on my journey to reduce stress and anxiety. It's all about the power of intentional, deep breathing-it's like lighting a serene candle within. And the beauty? That calm doesn't just stay in your breath; it spreads throughout your entire being. Your nervous system gets the memo, and a calm invitation takes hold. Tensions? They begin to dissolve. Emotions? They find harmony. And the best part? After each session, I'm wrapped in a comforting cocoon of peace. It's like finding silence after a cleansing rain. I just love this practice SO much!



What are the possible risks or effects of Transformational Breathwork?

In general, Transformational Breathwork is safe. However, it's important to begin with a skilled and experienced facilitator who can skillfully guide the process - like myself. Some people may experience physical sensations, emotional releases, or a slight feeling of lightheadedness during the practice. Respecting your body's signals is key, and don't hesitate to share any concerns with your facilitator. Remember, you're the captain of the ship. You decide how deep you want to sail. You're your own guide, and you hold the reins of depth and speed. If things ever feel a little overwhelming, slowing your breathing or returning to gentle nasal breathing is your retreat to calm.

Are there any scientific studies that support the effectiveness of Transformational Breathwork?

To this date, scientific research specifically focused on this breathwork technique is relatively limited. However, my belief in the power of personal experience and heartfelt testimonials is my science - they truly highlight the remarkable benefits of Transformational Breathwork. While research is still in its early stages, there's a growing body of evidence exploring the physiological and psychological effects of conscious breathing. This growing body of knowledge underscores the power of breathwork as a holistic path to wellness and healing- Just try it for yourself is my recommendation.

Can Transformational Breathwork help with physical problems or chronic pain?

Absolutely, YES! Transformational Breathwork can be a true ally in promoting physical wellness. It's like a gentle massage for your body's energy, releasing tension and improving oxygen flow. What's really fascinating is how it awakens your body's natural self-healing abilities. Believe me, whenever I'm dealing with pain or discomfort, Breathwork is my first choice - and it always works wonders.

Arrival info

Arriving to The Seed: I advise arriving in Guatemala at least 1 day prior to the start of the event.  It takes 4-5 hours to get to The Seed from the airport. Once you have your flights booked I can support you in making an effortless and safe travel flow.  You can either stay 1 night in Antigua (1 hour from the airport and 3 hours to The Seed) or go straight to Lake Atitlan.


Be aware that you may be required to show proof of vaccination if your flight takes you through the US, even if it is just a transit flight. Please call your airline and get all the details directly. To enter Guatemala you do not need proof of vaccination or a negative covid-test.
