"Are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?" - Mary Oliver

The breath is, surprisingly, one of the most power vehicles for healing and transformation. It is an often overlooked resource to dramatically influence one’s physical and emotional well-being, and an untapped resource for accessing transcendent states of experience and heightened awareness.

Our innate, natural breath is full and free, and optimal breathing would be responsive and free-flowing. Yet for most adults, it is stuck and locked in restrictive patterns due to unconscious response to the experiences of life. Can you feel your breath shallow and suspend when you imagine a difficult conversation with your partner, or when you feel overwhelmed by work demands? Over a lifetime of stress, trauma, fear, shock, emotional repression, tension, poor posture, etc., most adults breathe sub-optimally, having dire consequences on physical, emotional, and psychological health.

The breath – as the only function of the Autonomic Nervous System that can be consciously controlled – is a powerful key to transforming the reality you experience. As a breathwork facilitator, I offer training on breath awareness and regulation, as well as breathwork sessions and ceremonies in which an active, deep breathing technique is engaged to reclaim the fullness of the breath, and in doing so, many other dimensions of your life.



Breathwork is one of the most powerful and profound tools available for deep work of the Self. In this ceremony, you will engage an active, deep breathing technique to create the conditions for healing in your body, and reconnect to the wisdom that lies beyond any confusion, self-doubt, fragmentation, and isolation. In reclaiming the fullness of your breath, the body can discharge energetic holdings (from trauma, daily stressors, undigested emotional experiences, etc.) that consume your life force energy and limit your capacity to rest in your body with ease, clarity, joy, love, and power.

While each journey is unique, people commonly experience significant breakthroughs related to physical and emotional healing (shifting patterns of chronic anxiety, insomnia, etc.), and often experience transcendent states of consciousness and ‘samadhi’ type experiences.

Tai holds a strong and compassionate container for this sacred work of healing and remembering, and you will receive individual support, including hands-on work and shamanic healing.

Ceremonies begin with an opening circle, followed by a thorough introduction to the breathwork technique. The breathwork journey itself lasts approximately 90-minutes, and a dynamic soundtrack – along with live shamanic drumming, chanting, and rattling – supports the work. There will be time at the end for integration and brief sharing (as desired).

-A yoga mat, cozy blanket, and thin pillow
-Layered, comfortable clothing; body temperature can fluctuate, so please wear layers and non-restrictive clothing
-Optional: Eye pillow or mask/bandana to block out light


-Breathwork is not ideal on a full stomach, so please refrain from heavy meals prior.

-Breathwork is of value to anyone interested in self-realization, and no prior experience is required. As this process can be physically and emotionally demanding, it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, have severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, or recent major surgeries and/or communicable diseases.

Please see below for links to register for upcoming ceremonies. As these ceremonies have a maximum capacity to ensure an intimate and highly supported container, pre-registration is required to hold your spot. 

Please contact me if you have any questions about this work, or would like to bring a ceremony to your community!

My experience was miraculous. I felt an incredible flow of energy, especially around an old injury. Since the ceremony, all the pain is gone and I’m having a hard time believing it. GONE! I am so grateful.
— Kamala C.
What a truly extraordinary experience. I was simply blown away.
— Simon L.
If I could describe last night’s breathwork event in one word, it would be ‘Sensational!’

Thank you so much for providing a safe sanctuary for us to practice healing and well being. I feel empowered and confident after practicing my breathwork like that for the first time, and that is all thanks to you.
— Lisa L.
The experience was powerfully loving in a way I cannot put into words. It literally brought me to tears to receive the breath so fully.
— Christa G.
Tai’s presence is calming and comfortable. Something about her just makes you feel like you are in good hands and I felt completely safe with her. The breathwork experience was everything she said it was going to be. Intense. Beautiful. Balancing. She is the real deal. Words can’t describe, but her gifts are special and my experience was profound.
— Julie H.
Tai is masterful at bringing people into space and holding a safe container for deep work.
— Brittany R.
It was a life changing experience.
— Matt M.
This energetic connection flowed into my fingertips throughout my body, my heart, and then back out to the universe. My eyes were closed, but I could see my fingers and the energy like tesla, Love, LOVE, for and from all - shared with all - intense ecstatic love was connecting me to all that I knew, and all that I did not. Understanding wasn’t important, familiarity wasn’t important, for I was a vessel of love connected to all! This lasted an eternity - one of the most intense and amazing eternities of my life.
— Jim F.
What an absolute joy to meet you and participate in the Breathwork Ceremony! It was really a wonderful experience. Your abundant generosity and integrity set such a beautiful container for our time. My friends, all new to breathwork, really enjoyed it and were surprised by the benefits! We all wanted to say thanks for the amazing soundtrack - it provided such a great background and flow. Thanks so much!!!
