What is breathwork
the theta brainwave state?
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BREATHWORK and WHITE WOLFE BREATHWORK
There are many types of breathwork. Many times you are doing breathwork without even knowing like when you are exercising heavily. But breathwork in this case are controlled breathwork techniques that are guided by a breathwork practitioner. These Controlled breathwork techniques have been used for thousands of years, especially in Asian cultures. You might have heard of it being called Pranayama and have had positive and impactful on spiritual wellness. Prana means the body’s vital or psychic energy, and yama, to control or master it
The WHITE WOLFE Breathwork is a very simple breathwork technique. The timing of when to hold the breaths are done by intuition. This simple yet powerful technique has had many miraculous stories of healing trauma, releasing old negative patterns, making amends with loved ones, the body miraculously feeling better and healing spontaneously, having clear new paths on what to do next, aha moments that are life changing, new ideas for their business or creative arts and more!
The White Wolfe Breathwork evolved from Clarity Breathwork founded by Dana and Ashanna whom I am forever grateful for teaching and guiding me through my first three llevels of breathwork certifications in the USA and Bali Indonesia. I evolved the breathwork technique using my intuition and connection with Source and found that each time we held our breaths, we dropped deeper into a meditative state. I had to then research why I chose to do that.
In the yoga scriptures, Pranayama is described as the various ways of holding the breath. In one of the most wellknown scriptures, Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, it says:
“Pranayama is cessation of the movement of inhalation and exhalation” and “Thus the covering of the light is dissolved and the mind is fit for concentration.”
WHY WORK WITH WHITE WOLFE BREATHWORK?
The difference between us and many other breathwork are the sounds that we use to access the light codes of your unique frequencies of your body. Light codes are essentially the language of the soul. They carry the unique vibrational frequency of your soul. By understanding what your light codes are, you can begin to unlock your innate gifts and potentials, and learn how to best express them in this lifetime. Each code is comprised of a unique combination of colors, sounds, symbols, and frequencies. I channel these frequencies and sing them in the ceremony.
“When the breath is irregular, the mind is unsteady, but when the breath is still, so is the mind still and the Yogin obtains the power of stillness. Therefore the breath should be restrained.” (Hatha Yoga Pradipika)
In a book called “ The Holy Science” written by Sri Yukteswar, a disciple of Swami Yogananda who wrote, “ An Autobiography of a Yogi” Sri wrote that "holding the breath creates such a calm in the autonomic nervous system that the inner organs get a rest, which they otherwise never do, neither during sleep nor during the waking state!"
“Professor Thomas Schmidt, a German doctor, cooperated many years with us at Haa International Retreat Center. As a specialist of heart diseases and psychosomatic medicine (the relationship between the thinking and emotional activity of the mind, and the way the body reacts to this activity), he conducted research on retreat participants. He confirmed to me that every change in the way we breathe, its rhythm and speed, has a direct influence on the nervous system, and vice versa.
Before learning of the breathing exercises in yoga, Dr. Schmidt concluded that, if one could influence the breathing consciously, one would be able to create a very efficient therapeutic system. Through his research, he learned that such a system already exists. For thousands of years, the yogis have aimed at making the prana conscious to us, so we can use it for healing and for exceptional concentration and clarity. This has evolved into a set of different practices, each one with specific effects.” (From Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life by Swami Janakananda)
