A Weekend with Max Strom - From The Inside Out (November 8-10)

When we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. When we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. It is our gift to others to heal ourselves.
— Max Strom

Learn to Breathe, to Heal Yourself and Your Relationships with Max Strom

All levels are welcome.

How does the way we breathe affect our stress level, anxiety, quality of sleep, and even our relationships? Breath penetrates, breath invigorates, and breath heals. The effect of Max’s breath work can lead to profound release and calm. Other benefits may include increased energy and mental clarity. This works so quickly and effectively that Max has successfully brought his unique breathing program into the corporate world. Class will include a lecture, simple but high impact breathing exercises; very gentle breath-initiated movement, and guided meditation.

I thought I knew how to breathe until I experienced Max Strom’s breathing workshop. He guided me to a depth and openness I didn’t know was available. My heart, my breath, my spirit are nourished deeply by his teachings.

Some Doors Open Only from the inside with Max Strom
The healing power of transformational breath-work

All levels are welcome.

The voice of our intuition and wisdom is commonly drowned out by the noise in our mind. This noise is often caused by chaotic or congested emotions from by stress, depression, PTSD, or anxiety. Focused breath patterns can spark within us the reawakening of our higher nature, the voice of intuition, wisdom, and conscience. The practices you will learn in this workshop will take you to new depths and inspire you for weeks to come. Max has taken this work around the world to people of many faiths and nationalities. Bring your mat and writing materials. (Please no recording equipment)

The Extraordinary power of Conscious Breathing Patterns with Max Strom

All levels are welcome. Lecture, breathing patterns & writing.

We currently have an epidemic of stress and anxiety in the world that is stifling happiness, meaning, and connection with each other. In the face of such a pervasive problem, it might seem that something as simple as breathing patterns couldn’t possibly help. But scientific research and Max’s personal experience engaging with tens of thousands of people around the world have both found that utilizing conscious breathing patterns for a few minutes every day is the most productive approach for creating immediate relief from stress and anxiety. In this event, Max will lecture and demonstrate, followed by interactive instruction. Max teaches leaders how to use your breath to trigger more inspiration, focus, health, and better sleep. Be sure to bring writing materials for writing answers to a series of questions that will help you identify the causes of your anxiety.
