From earliest times breath has been used as a path to self-knowledge, healing, meditative awareness and transcendence. Many different forms of yoga, martial arts and shamanic pathways have been concerned with the vital and profound influence of the breath on human experience
The reason why I have championed Breath Journeying for over 13 years is that it quickly enters me into incredible sacred spaces of DEEP feeling, including touching into aspects of deep union with the divine (the light) and aspects of the underworld (the dark), helping me to understand the absolute highs and lows of the human condition. Put simply, getting in touch with my subterranean feelings eventually leads to a greater sense of BELONGING to something larger than just my day to day existence (lovely as that can be).
Philip Morey has led over 100 group Breath Journeys over a decade, co-facilitated Breath retreats for over five years and is always deeply humbled by the sudden transformations that occur during The Breath Journey.
His spiritual path began after being beset by panic attacks and anxiety when he was in his early 20’s. First attempts were made to control these using mindfulness meditation. He found it was a fair technique for reducing his levels of anxiety and nervous energy but he came to realise that mindfulness cannot really dig down far enough to deep underlying patterns which are beyond your life story. Some of these roots of disturbance go right down to before birth, into ancestral and past life material.
After studying extensively with Deva Daricha at the Centre For Human Transformation in Melbourne , Australia for a decade, he came to a much more solid and grounded place in himself. (And a lot less like some detached, above it all, sensitive new age guy!) His teaching came from a teacher who was fully conversant in philosophy, comparative religion, scientific research and Australian indigenous spiritual traditions.
Phil has a strong calling to teach this work in northern Europe which he visited as a child and a young adult. His ancestors have war trauma history in this region, which has been a constant theme in his healing journey.
Phil now has a thriving retreat business in Australia in both Breathwork and Shadow Tantra retreats.
