This 6-month program builds on skills developed in our Foundations training and includes a practicum structured to provide in-depth professional training. Focus is on refining and expanding skills in guiding others through a series of yin breath sequences designed to foster physical, mental, and spiritual health. Particular emphasis is on bringing into play the intricate relationship between the inner workings of the vagus nerve and the pranic flows of the subtle body, restoring resiliency and balance to both systems. This balance can have transformative effects on consciousness as well as physical health and well being.
This 6 month program includes a mentorship structured to provide in-depth professional training and hands-on supervision and support. Focus is on developing professional skills in facilitating the transpersonal dimensions of the breath. Students will work directly with Kathleen Barratt and an assigned mentor throughout the course of this training.
A mentor's role is a time-honored tradition that offers students the opportunity to work closely with an accomplished teacher to acquire the skills behind a highly-skilled breathwork facilitator.
