Breath as an Ancestral Tool to Help Move Us Forward in New Ways

Broadcast on February 11, 2022
With Mireya Alejo Marcet, MA, MFT
Hosted by Lisa de Narvaez

According to Mireya A. Marcet, MA, MFT, our breath is the most intimate and connected tool we have as human beings. It is the first thing we do as we're born, and the last thing we do before we die. And yet, it is one of the parts of our being human that we take most for granted. As we are emerging from the past two years of deep loss and uncertainty, it is again our breath that is here to help us make space for the unknown that wishes to birth now, integrating all our past learnings into a new movement forward.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • The transformative and healing potency of the breath as a way to inhabit ourselves and our world more fully
  • What is unique about holotropic breathwork, its practice and theory, and how it can enrich our lives and our journey
  • How can breath support moving through the transformative times we are living in

Mireya Alejo Marcet, MA, MFT

Artist, Teacher, Breathwork Facilitator & Expressive Arts Psychotherapist

Mireya A. Marcet, MA, MFT, is an artist, expressive arts psychotherapist, astrologer, and certified holotropic breathwork facilitator. Her therapeutic and teaching work is informed by her experiences and training with “curanderas” (medicine women) in Mexico as a social anthropologist, almost three decades of work with expanded states of consciousness, as well as the expressive arts, ceremonial practices, and the astrological chart as tools for our soul’s birthing, healing, and authentic expression. For the past 28 years she has facilitated groups and worked with individuals (both in English and Spanish) in person and online worldwide.

Mireya is the creator of “Altar Creation – A Canvas in Movement,” a practice that offers diverse applications to connect with one's interior life and the sacred through the creation of altar spaces. She offers a weeklong residential retreat called “The Art and Practice of Integration” that is an integrative weaving of holotropic breathwork, its practice and theory, expressive arts, sacred practices, and work with the natural world, for the purpose of integration of expanded states of consciousness. Mireya is also deeply committed to the empowerment of women, and regularly offers women’s expressive arts and ceremonial circles online.

She's an adjunct professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the expressive arts program, and a mentor for the Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies and Research. She also was a senior staff member at Grof Transpersonal Training for more than a decade. Mireya strongly believes in the power of offering sacred, creative, and permission-giving environments to bring about personal, collective, and spiritual transformation.
