About this Event

Brethren Breathwork: Litima

*This is a male-only event*

Litima;

The fiery emotion particular to the masculine part of things that is the source of willingness, desire, courage, and steadfastness, and that is also the source of quarrels, ruthless competition, recklessness, and brutality.

(From the Gisu people of Uganda)

This particular energy is the motivating energy for initiation. It requires a ritual space to emerge, and if left untempered, may be unleashed inadvertently and inappropriately in ones own home, and against ones own family. We are creating this space to transform this energy into courage, steadfastness, desire and fierceness.

Sacred space for men is held to create safety for healing male wounds, sharing common struggles, and connecting with whats in our hearts. Gathering together as brothers, we will dive into the energy of the masculine, explore themes of the male-mythos, and move as comrades, beyond competition.

We will all enter the space together, sit together and listen together. What is alive in us will be allowed to move, emerge, and be expressed.

Bio-Energetic Breathwork is a combination of Bio-Energetics Exercises, used to open patterns of tension in the body, with Clarity Breathwork, which is a deep journey of conscious, connected, and rhythmic breathing that activates deeply held emotions and trauma, allowing them to awaken and emerge into completion.

Breathwork is used widely for many therapeutic and psychedelic experiences. The activation of the body's sympathetic nervous system through continuous breathing through the mouth, in a safe container, is an incredible way to allow for the emergence and release of stored trauma which often has with it old stories about who we are and how we fit into the world. Releasing this trauma and by association, these stories, we can transform how we move through the world.

Manu and Reko have held breathwork events together, open to all participants, and in response to a number of requests, as well as a long desire of their own, to create space for men only, the Brethren Breathwork events were born. As young men in the community, Manu and Reko feel the responsibility to offer their unique services for supporting a male-specific experience.

Men share many common wounds. Many of them are only able to surface in the presence of other men. Some of them, only by the guidance of other men. This is an invitation to come and do the work best reserved for the company of men in ritual space.

If you have any questions, they can be directed to Manu or Reko, via pm or email.
