09. Carmen Ganne ~ The Art of Being Human: A Journey of Breathwork and Reclaiming our Sensual Nature
Breathwork Facilitator and Teacher, Legacy Mentor, Mystic & Mama ~ Carmen takes us on a beautiful journey through the art, science and spiritual nature of the breath
"The journey of my life is how to be wild within my body and at home in my body at the same time." ~ Carmen Ganne
Hello, Wild Ones ~
Carmen Ganne (@carmenganne) is the founder of Soul Luxury Breathwork and a passionate mentor to breathwork leaders around the world. She joins the show to discuss conscious connected breathwork and how we may cultivate a greater relationship with life through an intentional relationship with the breath.
We discuss our shared backgrounds of mental and emotional health challenges, the destructive behaviors that helped us feel alive, and how we eventually came back home to ourselves, our sovereignty, and our paths of cultivating well-being.
She explains the concept of conscious connected breathwork, which involves exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness and re-patterning the physiological way that we breathe so new possibilities can open up in our lives. We open up about the spiritual side of breathwork and how intentionally being with our breath can help us come into deep trust and belief in ourselves, as well as the full consent to be here — on this Earth, in our bodies, and in the exact lives that we’re living.
Carmen says that ‘the art of being human is luxury for the soul’ and that when we honor our bodies as temples, we see them as home for the divine, we return to our fully alive sensual nature, and we honor our choice to be here at this time while celebrating the remarkable diversity of people and connections in our lives.
