Foundational Facilitation

Conscious Connected Breathwork
Professional Facilitator's Training 2024

Inspiritu breathwork offers an integrated, trauma-informed approach synthesized from breathwave, somatic experiencing, yoga therapy and earth-based shamanic healing.

This training will provide the skills and knowledge to be a professional trauma-informed facilitator of Inspiritu Breathwork, a gentle, sacred and therapeutic approach to conscious connected breathwork.

 

It will teach:

  • tools to facilitate individuals and small groups in-person and online 

  • what it means to hold space for healing

  • the role of the facilitator

  • hands-on facilitation - approach and techniques

  • trauma-informed practice

  • the physiology, biology and anatomy of breathwork

  • ethical practice, the therapeutic relationship

  • an understanding of energetic patterning and how to work with a deeper field of awareness

Based on three pillars Foundational Breath, Foundational Facilitation and Practicum & Mentorship, trainees will be versed in the tangible and practical, and also the sacred and subtle aspects of this work. 

 

This professional facilitator’s training is comprehensive and open to all, and it is specifically designed for therapists, counsellors, coaches and other health practitioners and who want ans substantive foundation in breathwork to further expand their existing repertoire of healing services and skills . It is inclusive where folks of all genders, colours, ethnicities and orientations are welcome.

 

A hybrid format will be offered that combines both in-person and live online learning sessions for this Level 2 compponent. Compared to Foundational Breath with in-person learning and breathing together over two weekends, Foundational Facilitation will require more time with in-person learning, weekly live online class sessions and assignments.
