120. Accessing The Unconscious Through Breath Work: Magnetizing, Healing and Letting Go with Sarah Charmoli, Co-Owner of Effiji Breath

You’ve probably heard that psychedelics, regressive hypnotherapy and even “shadow work” can help access and heal deep layers of the unconscious, but did you also know that we can do the same thing just by breathing?! Sounds crazy, right?

Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t just any type of breathing, but done with the right methodology, focus, set and setting, breath work can have amazing and long lasting effects to mind, body and spirit (as I attest to in this episode!).

Breath work is currently a hot topic in the holistic wellness community thanks to the renewed psychedelic movement and figures like Wim Hoff… but to be honest, it’s not a modality that I’ve personally had the greatest luck with. Having tried a few different breath work sessions without “results,” I was finally referred to Effiji, the unique breath work practice of Sarah Charmoli, my wonderful guest today, and her business partner, Elijah.

As business leader, head of communications and master facilitator for Effiji worldwide, Sarah Charmoli is passionate about the transformational power of Effiji Breathwork and the practices that make up the holistic program designed to support people in their personal consciousness work. Sarah has successfully organized, executed and co-led multiple weekend intensives and programs across the globe. She is committed to the growth of each individual called to work within the framework that Effiji provides for their exponential evolution and to the growing community of individuals supporting one another on this path.

In this transformational episode, you’ll hear about the pivotal life moments that guided Sarah to her dream work and she shares potent advice for getting out of your own way, developing magnetism and being “realized” through both failures and successes. We talk about why breath work is so powerful, the value of a passionate breath work facilitator and what sets Effiji apart from other breath work approaches. As usual, I get very personal and talk about my Effiji breath work journey with the hope that it inspires you to dive in and feel into your own unconscious layers.

I have GREAT NEWS! Sarah has generously gifted a 50% discount to Awakening Aphrodite listeners so you can experience Effiji for yourself!
