Breath Immersion: Better Sleep & the Vagus Nerve
May 23 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm PDT$25 – $44
What would your life look like if you got the quality sleep you need, and your nervous system was able to reset more deeply? And how do you get there?
The core of this program is based in the foundation of generosity, service and devotion. It is where self-exploration leads to mind, body, spirit connection.
Imagine – being gifted the same unfathomable peace that only those Holy, Sainted and or renounced of the material world have reached. Is there a possibility that one might become intimate with what has been long sought after and known in the Ancient Eastern Traditions as Samadhi?
“Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.”
― Steven Pressfield
