Come harness the alchemy of breath and sound, which are both essential to life, join Ocian and Lex for a powerful and transformational journey through sound and breath. This particular session will help us slow down and cocoon ourselves in breath as we transition into cooler, stiller and more grounded winter energies, preparing ourselves for a time of quiet reflection and manifistation.
Breathwork has profound benefits, and is an on-going practice. Performing Aletheia breathwork enables you to......
Express suppressed emotions
Release old tensions
Remove negative blocks
Forgive past occurrences
Settle into a deep relaxed state
Tap into your truest you
To take a moment, and really, just really breathe.
Technical Aspects of Aletheia Breathwork:
There are a few key parts to the breathing pattern:
1. It is conscious so you are very aware of the fact you are breathing
2. It is connected so that the natural pause between the inhale and exhale is merged, creating a continuous loop of breath.
3. It is relaxed, meaning the exhale is relaxed, and there is emphasis on the inhale.
4. It is open, meaning it is performed with a wide open mouth.
5. It is deep, meaning you are breathing fully into the lower belly, and all the way up into the chest.
What a typical session looks like:
We will do an open discussion as to where you are at in your current journey.
We will do a guided meditation, assisted by sound healing and deep relaxation.
You will lie on your back and breathe for about an hour, and in this time I will offer positive affirmations as well as hands on acupressure. I may also ask you to use vocal toning sounds to enhance more breath movement.
We will end with a final relaxation, with further sound healing and energetic clearing.
We will then end with a final discussion on your experience to help you process.
You will walk away with a new found refreshed perspective on your life, feeling like you truly enabled yourself to integrate and release that which no longer serves you. Walking away with a feeling of a fresh start.
Bring: yoga mat, blanket, pillow, water bottle, comfortable warm clothing, a journal if you wish, and something to add to the altar.
Note: If you are currently going through any mental conditions, or are on any medications, have glaucoma, please email lex and explain what is currently happening.

Ocian is the founder of SoundSeed Medicine Journeys. As a sound practitioner since 2010, Ocian gracefully weaves in a plethora of modalities to create one-of-a-kind experiences, every time. Ocian is a visionary, an intuitive, a spiritual teacher and coach, using frequency and vibration to harmonize the body, mind and soul. By combining this fundamental building block of life (sound) with Usui Reiki (masters level), hot-stone therapy, touch therapy and most recently Crystal Healing, The Alchemists Path: Celtic Shamanism and Numa Somatics Breathwork, Ocian facilitates group Journeys for participants to safely explore the inner world and all it contains. These sessions include Crystal Bowls, Crystal Lyre, Crystal didjeridu, Zaphir and Koshi Chimes, Rattles, drum and others, along with her etheric and powerful voice. Her one-on-one sessions include Hot-Stone Massage Therapy on a Vibrational Sound Table, with the live instruments, creating a unique, relaxing experience. As she works, Ocian can hear, feel and sometimes see the underlying vibrational and energetic patterns held within the body or group energy field. She uses this clairaudience to offer an awareness of these patterns, with a reminder of the power of our personal beliefs, stories, and most importantly, our own ability to be the catalyst for our own repatterning. This work offers each person the potential and the power of self-healing and self-awareness.
This sound and breath journey is very potent, it is very magical, it is very transformative and we fully welcome all of you to join us.
