Ensomatics Evenings in Athens: Breath

  • Syndrasi 12 Galatias Athina, 118 51 Greece (map)

Dear Friends,

We invite you to the third in a series of evenings of in-depth bodywork in Thissio. Ensomatics combines the words "en" and "soma" which together imply embodiment. The aim of the approach is to help us to inhabit and feel our body once again and through the body to come in touch with our essence.

Breath is the basis of life and the quality of our breathing is a measure of our aliveness. Just as fire needs oxygen to burn, our inner fire needs our breath to stay aflame. Most meditative methods are based upon breath and its spiritual significance has been recorded in the sacred texts of most all cultures. Even the words for soul and spirit in many languages mean breath.   

In this group, we will work with deep breathing and letting go to allow ourselves to experience our spontaneous breath. When our breath is deep and total, it is like a wave that moves through us, a liberating force which can free the body from its armor of tension and lead us all the way to the oceanic experience. In this way, the breath becomes a vehicle to access our depths and to reconnect with our essence. 

“We live in an ocean of air like fish in a body of water. By our breathing we are attuned to our atmosphere. If we inhibit our breathing we isolate ourselves from the medium in which we exist. In all Oriental and mystic philosophies, the breath holds the secret to the highest bliss.”
-Alexander Lowen
