“It was such a treat to work with you. It was one of the most profound and healing moments in my life. Thank you.”
– Client after first session
“Jeri! Thanks to you breathwork is a huge part of my life and has helped me feel and accept my feelings and receive guidance and just plain love and validation.”
– Client after several sessions
“You reminded me over and over again how there was so much support around me, how held I was, how loved I was. I could feel it. My chest, my heart feel open. It astounds me sometimes how deeply every piece of my being trusts you, but it is also the most beautiful thing. For the first time in weeks, I am cautiously optimistic looking forward.”

I was a massage therapist for many years and that experience has served me well in my Breathwork practice. When I hold space for my clients in a Breathe, I often use touch to help them get the most from their session.
A hand placed on the heart area can open up so much energy when the breath becomes unsteady. Holding my client’s feet can be such a gentle way to return the focus to the body. Sometimes I use my hands quite a bit in a session, and other times I don’t physically touch my client at all. There are so many ways to help someone feel safe. Below is from an email a client sent after her Breathe:
I remember a moment where I had some really bad epigastric* pain (just after one of my waves of nausea, of course), and you put your hand right over that spot for a bit. Just before that, I’d had some pain in my right trap*, and you moved your hand from where it was to hold that spot exactly. It amazed me, as it does every time you do that, that you knew exactly where it hurt.
* Epigastric pain is in the upper abdomen just below the ribs.
* Trapezius: upper shoulder muscle

“So much of the breathe is a blur. In some ways, it felt long, it felt the full 50 minutes. In others, I did not want it to end because it was lovely. I did manage to focus on my breath. I did manage to float. That’s what it felt like—I would float. Detach completely. I was conscious of it—the coming and going. I’d leave my body and come back. I’d feel the breath as I came back. I was very conscious of coming back into my body and then slowly feeling myself float off again. It was gentle, light. There was a LOT of light too, so much light. The whole room held all this light almost the whole time.”

Every Breathwork session is different and gives you exactly what you need in that moment. I have witnessed so many people release stress and tension, resolve childhood trauma, and connect to their own healing energy.
Clarity Breathwork changed my life and my own sessions continue to give me access to my own deeper guidance. Sharing Breathwork with other people, especially in these times, is such a joy.

Currently, I am seeing many clients with compromised sixth and seventh chakras. Over the last few months I am finding that these energy centers are not as open as the other five chakras.
The sixth energy center, or third eye chakra, rules perception, intelligence, and visualization. At the top of the head, the seventh chakra is the center of self-transcendence and connection to our highest wisdom.
It is no wonder when these two energy centers are not balanced we feel stuck, disconnected, uninspired, and even depressed.
I have noticed these two chakras open up in my healing sessions as soon as my client becomes grounded. I can feel the difference in a few minutes of holding their feet.
The simple act of helping my clients ground has profoundly affected their sense of well-being and emotional balance. Sometimes all it takes is one session.
Getting a healing session is, of course, a great way to make sure that you are reground. Yet, if you suddenly feel spacey, out-of-it, or weirdly disconnected, there are simple things you can immediately do to rebalance.
Try standing barefoot on the earth for at least ten minutes. Twenty minutes is better, but I know we don’t always have that kind of time—Check in with your body before and after to see if you notice a difference.
If you can’t get outside, you can try energetically grounding. Put your attention on the bottoms of your feet and/or the base of your spine, and imagine a grounding cord connecting to the center of the earth. This is a basic grounding technique that is so simple and so effective. It becomes more tangible the more you do it. Try it and see if you notice a difference.

This post began as a short description of the spiritual aspects of Clarity Breathwork, and ended up becoming a personal testimonial to my own Breathwork practice:
“For me, Spirituality is not about religion, it is about connecting directly to Spirit, God, Goddess, Sacred Space, The True Self or Oneness. It is the deep, peaceful reconnection of my body, my mind, my life, and my world. A felt sense of just being: having enough, doing enough, right here, right now, in this moment.
My most tangible and profound spiritual experiences are during my Breathwork sessions. I become the Divine Presence where I am connected to everything – past, present, and future. Being in this ecstatic state, even for only a few minutes at a time, has healed me physically, mentally and emotionally. Breathwork continues to connect me to this expanded state of consciousness while helping me stay grounded and comfortable in my body.”

Receiving a series of Clarity Breathwork, Reiki or Healing Touch sessions will often change how you live in the world. As you become more energetically aligned and grounded, your consciousness naturally expands. These inner changes transform how you perceive your outer world.
A client who has been receiving monthly healings for the last two years told me about a moment when she became aware of this shift.
“I was playing a friendly game of cards with my husband, and I was losing. Then I realized I was playing the old way. I started playing differently, and I started to win.”
She didn’t have to explain to me what she meant by “differently.”
Differently meant playing kinesthetically, instinctively, fully present in the moment, thoroughly engaging both sides of the brain. Differently meant intuitively, not just thinking about what the best card to play next is, but sensing it with her whole being. Differently meant flow-hacking. Playing differently requires much less effort. The difference in playing the “old way” and “differently” is a very profound, yet subtle shift in awareness.
She said “differently” was much more fun.

I worked out of my home for the first eighteen years of my business. This worked really well until a shift occurred in my personal life, and the energy in my house changed. I knew it was time to move my practice outside my living space.
The ideal office opened up one block from my house. It was practically soundproof, with a beautiful garden outside, a creative community of friends and artists, and very, very good energy. It was perfect.
However, as soon as the possibility of moving my healing business became real, my limiting beliefs surrounding money and abundance hit me like a ton of bricks. I couldn’t believe how much fear surfaced. I could not get grounded and was even having mild panic attacks at night.
Could I afford it? Did I really want to create more financial stress in my life? Would my clients like the new office? There were so many emotional blocks I couldn’t even think coherently. Why the distress: wasn’t this the healing space that I always wanted? Isn’t my business grounded and flourishing?
I was desperate to clear my fear. I needed to say yes to the new healing space quickly, so I booked five consecutive days of Breathwork sessions for myself. Four private sessions and one day-long Saturday workshop with two breathes. By doing this, I created a mini-retreat for myself, focused on clearing all emotional and mental blocks that were keeping me from moving forward.
I could feel the “rightness” of renting the office in my first breathe. During the breathe I was in an abundant creative state connected to my highest wisdom. Yet, this clarity only lasted for a few hours after my first three sessions. Several hours after the session a deeper level of emotional blocks would re-surface, and I would then contract back into the fear.
It wasn’t until my fourth daily breathe that I could completely embody my new level of consciousness and hold the confidence to rent the space. The rest of the breath sessions further helped me embody this new level of consciousness.
The day I started moving to into my healing space, it was so obvious I made the right move. I felt fantastic. What a transformation! I released so much old programming. It was a new beginning, and I felt so much lighter. I swear, creating change in my life has been so much easier since. I let go of some deep limiting beliefs. This shift was so much more significant for me than just getting an office.
The next time you need to manifest the next level of your dream, try scheduling yourself a mini-breath retreat.
Clarity Breathwork is for letting go of what limits you from manifesting!

A core belief is a decision that you have made about yourself, or your life, on a subconscious level that becomes dominant and repetitive.
We are often acting from these decisions, these beliefs, without even realizing it. Just becoming conscious of a core belief can release you from limiting habitual patterns and make a HUGE difference in the choices you make in your life.
A core belief may be:
“I Am Not Good Enough”
“I Am Unlovable”
“Relationships Are Not Safe.”
After a Breathwork session, one client told me she realized that she believed “If I Don’t Succeed, I Will Die.” It was then clear to her why she had so much fear in her work environment and why it was so difficult for her to create a more fulfilling career.
Even though many clients have uncovered core beliefs in their Healing Touch and Reiki sessions, I have found Clarity Breathwork to be the most potent and effective modality for bringing light to any unconscious beliefs that are blocking your vital energy.
The first core belief I uncovered in my initial series of Clarity Breath sessions was “Life is Hard.” When this came up during my breathe with Clarity Breathworker Maggie Ostara, she asked me to repeat the affirmation “Life is not hard.”
I could not even say those words out loud. Every fiber in my body knew life was hard, even though before that moment I had not been aware of it.
Maggie saw how embedded this belief was in my psyche, so she asked me, “Are you willing to believe life is not hard?”
I was willing.
I realized I knew many people who operated very successfully in the world did not think life was hard. So for weeks after that breathe, every time I felt myself feeling that life was hard, I thought to myself “I am willing to believe that life is not hard.”
I now live my life from a place that is not hard and that was over 12 years ago. I still work quite a bit, and there are challenging moments, but life now feels like it just flows. This was a huge shift from how I used to live. It was a great healing.
I recently held space for a woman who discovered and released a core belief that healed her body of headaches. Here is part of what she wrote me afterward:
“In my last breath session with Jeri, she helped me get to a new layer of a core limiting belief before the session even began. During the breath session, I saw the events in my life that had set & re-triggered core limiting beliefs. I watched them as if I was a purely compassionate being watching a movie. I had the distance to realize that within the pattern were things I hadn’t noticed before that were causing me physical illness. I then worked to balance my body and align my chakras. Jeri helped guide that process by releasing tension in my shoulders and neck. Energy flowed through my body in a way it hasn’t in years.
I released the personal pain surrounding the pattern (forgave) and was able to see the pain from a general, human perspective.
The day after the session and since I’ve felt more energized, my mind is calmer, I’m sleeping better, my personal interactions are richer and even difficult communication is not strained. The headaches I’ve been having on and off for years are definitely more “off”, in fact, I’ve only had one show-stopping headache since the breathe and it only lasted for 20 minutes! Generally speaking, I’ve had show-stopping headaches that lasted weeks.”

Here is a sweet video from the participants of the last Clarity Breathwork Intensive in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Ashanna Solaris and Dana DeLong are now taking this beautiful work all over the world. If you want to get away and go deep, this is a training/retreat for you.
While I highly recommend these Clarity Breathwork retreats, it is also possible and incredibly healing to have regular sessions in Oakland and then integrate that expanded state immediately in your daily life.

I would like to share an email I received from a client after her first Clarity Breathwork session. Thank you, J.E., for taking the time to write such a beautiful description of your experience and also giving me permission to post it here.
“I just wanted to check in and let you know how moved I am by our breathwork yesterday. You are a healer and your gift is a bright light that I am grateful to have in my life. Yesterday’s session was very intense and the pain nearly unbearable towards the end. Your intuitive touch and your healing words gave me the strength to move through it…to stay with it…to heal the pain and survive the release. My guides showed me where I needed to go and when I hit the darkness (the deep past) I don’t think I was prepared for what I found there. Blessings to you for being so grounded and such a healer as to know that I was safe to continue on. I am deeply moved. Had a very peaceful night and woke this morning feeling lifted and balanced. I am SO looking forward to our session. Thank you for sharing your gift. Thank for your bright smile every time I see you and for your healing energy.”
