The Power of Breath Institute’s The Power to Heal weekend is designed for individuals who seek deep healing and empowerment. Our heart-centered curriculum assures a life-transforming experience for every participant. The retreat is held over a weekend and focuses on uplifting every individual utilizing mindfulness, conscious breathing and meaningful ceremony as the primary tools of self-awakening. The program takes place in a rural setting, in Spofford, New Hampshire, which enables nature-based experiences as an integral part of the program.

What sets this program apart from other personal growth programs is its safe and relational approach to healing the body, mind, heart and spirit, through processes and methods grounded in conscious breathing, interpersonal neurobiology, somatic psychotherapy and wisdom traditions. First, we build a culture of safety and trust, in order to cultivate loving self-awareness and self-responsibility. Second, through the potency of group connection, we develop the necessary personal skills that deepen healing and the ability to engage in a full and vibrant life. With this solid foundation, you build resiliency in order to integrate day-to-day experiences more fully and easily, while being able to make the choices that fulfill your highest potential.

Designed from over 35 years of group work, The Power to Heal  is a well-balanced blend of Somatic Breath Coaching and Somatic Breath Therapy, mindfulness, cognitive inquiry, group process, and ceremonies in the natural world to encourage the recovery of each participant’s true and loving nature. The time you spend with us will be skillful, intensive, interactive and experiential. It will challenge you to embrace the fullest and highest expression of your Self, while fully supporting you throughout the entire process.
