    About Breathwork
    This is a multidimensional experience, encompassing many facets of our being. It helps to lift chakra vibrations to their natural, higher frequencies. This practice also helps eliminate sources of psychosomatic disease, tensions, inhibitions and repressed emotions. It employs an ancient, cathartic, healing breath which activates and purifies our emotional memory at the cellular level.

    About Bruce Hilliger
    Bruce Hilliger finished a twelve year retreat at Vivekananda Monastery and Retreat in Ganges, MI in 1985. He ran the Vedanta Society of Atlanta for 2 years in 86/87. He went independent of the Ramakrishna Order of Monks in 1995 and has been running SRV Retreat Center in Greenville, NY since 1988. Bruce’s favorite Indian spiritual figure is Swami Vivekananda who he has studied extensively as well as Sri Ramakrishna. He has also studied the Upanishads and practiced the various yogas and Buddhist practices since 1967. He has also practiced and studied Peruvian shamanism for 12 years, has visited Peru numerous times and is a musician.

    About Susanna Raeven
    Susanna Raven is a singer, songwriter and musician with a strong focus on ceremonial music and sacred instruments. Her songs are inspired by icaros, traditional plant spirit songs from the Peruvian Amazon. Rattle, shruti box, drum, Tibetan bowls, and shacapa are her allies. She has been tuned into the tribal sound and power of the didgeridoo ever since she was exposed to its vibration for the very first time. Her music is an offering to the wildness of the earth and the healing of its people.
