Both set and setting are involved forces that shape the overall psychedelic experience, whether that be through psychedelic substances themselves, plant medicine, or breathwork.
As breathwork allows us to both revisit our experiences safely and integrate our insights, it can serve as a potent tool to support and enhance psychedelic experiences.
Breathwork can often result in transpersonal psychedelic experiences – comparable to experiences induced by MDMA and psilocybin therapies.
Breathwork has the ability to take us on a journey, to transport us into non-ordinary states of consciousness that are thought to be typically accessed either with psychedelics or plant medicine.
What if we allowed our expanded levels of awareness, presence, and thinking from our “non-ordinary” states to become our “ordinary” state, or even better, to become our “extraordinary” state of being?
My life is divided into two spans: before breathwork (BB), and after breathwork (AB). This is why breathwork is psychedelic and how a class typically goes.
