Breath Vs. Psychedelics: How Breathwork Journeys Can Release DMT For A Psychedelic-Like Experience, Clear Emotional Trauma, & Re-Energize Your Body.
For something that’s free, and that humans do effortlessly 22,000 times a day, I’m surprised more people haven’t harnessed the power of their breath for its many powerful, scientifically proven benefits. As I have written about before, I believe that breathwork courses similar to what I took my twin boys through last year should be an integral part of every human being’s life curriculum.
I’ve experienced many, many breathwork benefits firsthand (you can check out my breathwork experiences in my podcasts and articles listed in the Summary section at the end of this article), frequently weave breathwork into my daily routine, and even recently traveled to Sedona for a second time (you can watch a recap of my first breathwork visit to Sedona in this video) with Kion co-founder and CEO, Angelo Keely to undergo a transformative breathwork session with my friend Anahata Ananda, whom you may remember from the podcast episode “Magic Chocolate, Holotropic Breathwork, Grounding, Earthing, Vortexes, Crystals & More With Shamangelic Healer Anahata Ananda.”
During this transformative experience, both Angelo and I experienced some deep business insights and profound physiological breakthroughs similar to what one might harness from plant medicine journeys or psychedelics. (You can subscribe to my podcast here for free to listen to our upcoming episode this Thursday for all the nitty-gritty details of our journey with Anahata.) So, naturally, I just had to ask Anahata if she would come back on the podcast to share more about the work she does, to which she obliged—and also offered to write today’s article for your reading pleasure.
So in today’s guest post by Anahata, you’ll discover how breathwork has been used throughout history, what a breathwork journey looks like, how breathwork actually works, how breathwork can lead to healing and spiritual awakenings, how to get started on your own breathwork journey, and much more.
