Conscious Breathwork

“Reconnect with the effortless flow of your authentic nature. When you own your breath nobody can steal your peace.”


Through a safely guided journey of strong, connected breathing we access higher states of conscious awareness, while releasing physical and emotional toxins and tension from the body. We boost our vitality and harness greater creative potential while inviting deep healing, peace, joy and abundance into our lives.

The Process

Breathers lie on mats, eyes closed, following a rhythm of strong connected breathing for up to 60 minutes, guided by supportive ‘journey’ music. The breathwork typically works through two phases.

Sessions range from 90 to 120 min, typically comprising:

Theme & breathwork introduction – 20 to 30 minutes
Power breathing – 60 minutes
Grounding & optional sharing – 10 to 30 minutes

Phase 1:

For the first period of approximately 15 minutes (this period varies) some effort is required to push through a layer of surface resistance and physical awareness. 

Phase 2:

The strong connected breathing rhythm which initially felt like effort for those first few minutes now becomes effortless. It feels like the breath is breathing you. This is the phase during which a breather can experience a profound inner journey with visions and insights while experiencing deep healing and the release of suppressed emotions and low vibration energies.

Benefits of conscious breathwork include:

  • Release of physical tension and stress
  • Increased energy levels, stamina and optimism
  • Enhanced clarity, creativity and cognitive ability
  • Reduction in pain and inflammation
  • Physical detox – 70% of our toxins are released through the breath
  • Alkalizing the body and strengthening the immune system
  • Improved cellular regeneration
  • Improved blood flow and digestion
  • Healthier lungs and heart
  • Better quality of rest
  • Enhanced intuition 
  • Releasing old traumas, limiting beliefs and deeper emotional and mental patterns suppressed within the subconscious

I absolutely LOVE breathwork with you, Volker. Your sessions have given me the most profound experiences of my LIFE journey thus far! This medicine is real & priceless. Thank you from the deepest part of my soul, eternally, Gratitude overfloweth!!!

I consider my inner healing process to be circular and evolving, like a spiraling staircase, and the work with Volker through the Hero’s Journey allowed me to both descend and ascend the spiral to retrieve vital parts of myself, very young parts, that I have known about for years but have not been able to access.

The Journey is breathtakingly beautiful; the weaving together of the connected breath following the teachings facilitated retrieval and recovery in a very unique way- for me it was like entering a vast, unknown landscape filled with new colors and textures, with a ground and sky of safety and light that encouraged movement at precisely the right rate and direction.

I would recommend the Hero’s Journey to anyone who has found the connected breathing to be healing and restorative and who is ready to go deeper in their inner work.”
