Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.
— Thích Nhat Hanh
During these times of intense and rapid change, wouldn’t it be fantastic to have tools within you to stay emotionally grounded and at peace within.
The good news is that you do!
One of the greatest benefits you can derive from consciously tapping into the power of your breath — instantaneously — is increasing your sense of equilibrium.
By using potent ancient and leading-edge breathwork techniques, you can quickly move from a reactive, hyperaroused state, with your sympathetic nervous system in “fight or flight” mode…
… into a more relaxed state, where you’re likely to feel calm, empowered, centered, present, and in touch with your inner voice.
During the Shift Network’s Breathwork Summit series, you’ll discover the next generation of breathwork practices for lasting resilience and healing…
… and explore the potent power of full-spectrum breathwork, ranging from a number of ancient Indigenous traditions to the latest science-backed techniques.
You’ll learn what constitutes “safe” breathwork practice, who’s qualified to offer breathwork professionally, and how ethical practice is monitored in this burgeoning and diverse field.
You’ll also uncover the history — and the science — behind these profound practices, and will have time allotted to actually experience them with the guidance of expert breathwork practitioners.
Your ability to use breathwork to widen your window of tolerance, downshifting from states of hyperarousal to peace, allows you to increase your capacity for handling the stressors of everyday life.
These findings are backed by science, particularly studies in neuroscience. You can even bring involuntary bodily systems more under your direct control!
The various techniques that will be presented are easy to learn and non-invasive, and you can use them at home for free. Like a dedicated healer, the breath is always available to you — accessing it doesn’t require fancy equipment or physical prowess.
That’s why we’re thrilled to invite you to join this convergence of leading breathwork guides, practitioners, researchers, and teachers who will equip you with best-practice methods…
… to become a masterful breather, accumulate greater emotional resilience, and be better prepared to face any challenge.
Here’s a sampling of what our incredible speakers will be sharing with you...
Anthony Abbagnano will introduce you to “The Bridge,” a 6-step process using the breath as a tool to connect fragmented pieces of yourself.
Dana Dharma Devi DeLong and Ashanna Solaris will guide you to experience the Clarity Breathwork sacred tools of meditation, sacred music, and breath.

Kathleen Booker will explain that while breakdowns unfortunately are common, breathwork can support you to move through a breakdown, so you can break through it.
Dr. Katie Hendricks will explore and integrate key breathing activities that give you the power to shift your state by choice and “unkink your energy hose.”

Use the Power of Your Breath to Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit
If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.
— Amit Ray
Breath is one of the only involuntary bodily functions you can consciously alter at any time — directly and powerfully affecting your physiology, brain chemistry, and consciousness.
Your breath and your brain actually control your body's felt sensation — and by leveraging the power of breathwork, you’ll be able to use that kinesthetic knowledge to improve your daily life, reducing chronic pain, energizing the body, and transmuting physical stress.
In addition to the myriad physical benefits offered by breathwork, it can also profoundly soothe your mental and emotional states…
… helping you achieve spiritual equilibrium quickly by relieving stress, depression, and anxiety, while guiding you to release limiting belief systems that are holding you back.
You can use your breath to form a positive relationship with your unconscious self, while learning to decipher what your unconscious self is communicating back to you, enabling you to shift your inner state at will and act from the power of presence.
You’ll then be able to access transcendent states quickly — it won’t take years to awaken these powerful healing modalities that can improve your breathing baseline and increase your capacity to roll with the punches of life in these volatile times of unpredictable change.
The Breathwork Summit series gathers legends in this field, along with esteemed researchers, healers, and teachers to guide you through practical exercises you can immediately integrate into your daily routine.
You’ll be in good hands with your co-hosts: Integrative Breath co-founder and lead teacher Steph Magenta… holistic health and breathwork expert Niraj Naik, founder of SOMA Breath… and special guest host Jessica Dibb, the founder, spiritual director, and principal teacher at Inspiration Consciousness School and Community.
During this rejuvenating series, you’ll learn myriad ways to move into this new year buoyed by the power of your breath — embracing joy with a heightened sense of ease and inner stability.
Here’s what participants had to say about previous years’ Breathwork Summit…

“This definitely feels like some kind of turning point in my life”
It was my first contact with breathwork in my life. Initially it was just curiosity — let’s listen and have some ideas about it. But it inspired more than I expected. Wow! Now I just need some time to digest it and accumulate all the impressions and information. I didn't expect to jump into the challenge to listen to all the sessions in spite of being busy enough with my other daily tasks parallel to the summit. This definitely feels like some kind of turning point in my life.
