Body and Breathwork

The most powerful healing tool we have available is breath. And some of our most painful emotional injuries and psychic traumas are held in the body. A regular Community Breathwork practice uses the psychedelic medicine of our breath to heal bodies in ways that can be healed no other way.

Now Recruiting Crew for Psychedelic Summer Expedition

Medicinal Mindfulness is now recruiting members for a special Psychedelic Summer Expedition.  This is an exploratory expedition.  We’ll be setting off into mostly unknown transpersonal territory to explore new possibilities of creating what we call “psychedelic society.”

We will be deep diving into the training program starting in May for a four month expedition.  New members are invited to participate as Journeyers, or to join us for a weekend Psychedelic Sitters School training program to participate as Sitter-Journeyers.  Long-term allies are invited to participate as Senior Sitters, Mentors and Guides.
