Autumnal Equinox Breathwork Ceremony


Saturday, September 16th, 2023 4:15-6:15pm

The word “equinox” comes from Latin and means “equal night,” referring to the 12-hour day and 12-hour night that occurs only on the two equinox days of the year. Indigenous cultures recognized earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; illuminated stages of an inner spiritual journey – a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves.

Fall, paradoxically, is a time of simultaneous bounty and withering. The Equinox Breathwork Session gives us conscious pause to consider the areas of our life that no longer serve, get in the way, and need to wither while at the same time to honor what we are harvesting so we can enjoy them.

Breath is a valuable tool to deepen consciousness — from boundaries to boundlessness. Right under your nose resides the innate capacity to change your internal state of being! Conscious Connected Breathwork is an active form of consciously working your breath to bypass the mind and enter a different state of awareness. This is what most people seek when meditating, and breathwork takes you to that place very quickly. The practice can bypass the brain's executive functioning so you drop into a deeper state of consciousness, where healing, spirit, and love reside. 

Throughout history, cultures worldwide have provided a means for people to access non-ordinary realms for healing and spiritual growth. Breathwork itself is one of them. At the interface of ancient breathwork teachings and modern science, we’re discovering how to utilize our most natural practice of breathing to yield extraordinary new possibilities for emotional regulation, wholeness, and love. Through breath we can experience creativity infiltrating places of internal stuckness and tension, increase our understanding of emotional contributors to physical dis-ease, and deepen our spiritual connection.

Dr. Rae brings a ceremonial aspect to her sessions, often creating a theme based on the seasons, phases of the moon, holidays or cultural transitions. Check for the theme of this month’s Breathe! The process is gentle, safe, and loving. Almost every person will have a deep, moving experience. Breathing in the Salt Cave with Dr. Rae is an exquisite experience! Please join us!

***NOTE: Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat, blanket and pillow. It's preferable not to eat for at least 1 hour prior.  We will provide eye masks or you can bring your own.

Please arrive a few minutes early so as to be ready to begin by 4:15!

The main ceremony will be held in our Himalayan Salt Cave
