Breath Medicine Ceremony with Ivo Grossi & Cosetta Romani
Oct 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
One event on Nov 23, 2019 at 6:30 pm
A unique workshop that weaves breath-work, shamanic medicine songs (Icaros), chakra alignment with the five elements, and meditation in a powerful ritual. This ceremony facilitates a healing process that purifies, realigns, restores and transforms our physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
This workshop is part of an original series of teachings, The Play of Shiva & Shakti, growing out of Ivo & Cosetta’s combined 35 years of yoga, shamanic and meditation training, study and sharing, and represents the alchemy of their lives thus far as lovers, teachers and medicine people.
Note: Please arrive 15 minutes early to set your spot with your own mat, eye covering, thin pillow and water bottle. Doors close once the talk begins. Plan to avoid eating for at least three hours before the session. Open to all but not indicated during pregnancy.
Ivo and Cosetta’s intention for the ceremony is to create an energetic container that facilitates a healing process for participants to allow glimpses of their true nature to come to the surface. For once we get a deep enough glimpse of our own divinity, we dedicate ourselves to its full recovery and go to a deeper level of yoga. Participants report deep energetic cleansings, opening of dreams and visions, shift in their energy baseline, insights and deep emotional release. Breath Medicine Ceremony helps activate the subconscious mind and brings awareness and insights not easily accessed through traditional means. Breath opens the energy channels in the body and allows what we have been holding onto to surface and be released. This may be suppressed emotional material, physical blocks in the body, old beliefs structures and identifications, old memories, escape patterns and addictions. The Icaros open the energetic pathway to let Shakti do what she has to do, which is to burn, to recalibrate, and to re-pattern our habitual neuronal grooves. The combine effect is a full somatic experience that ultimately reconnects body, spirit and mind through the awakening of our heart, which then gives us the strength to not waste the precious gifts we came here to manifest. We are blessed with the presence of trained students/friends Guardian Angels assisting participants in their process during the experience.

About the instructors:
Registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500). I apprenticed for five years under the guidance of knowledgeable yoga teacher, Lee Atwell, whose teachings have been influenced by her guru Baba Hari Dass. I undertook yoga-training intensives from Eric Schiffman, David Saul Raye, Mark Whitwell, Sarah Powers, Cindy Lee, Sean Corn, Shari Friedrichsen, Rod Stryker, Sally Kempton. I have been in an ongoing training since 2007 with my most inspirational and empowering teacher, Shiva Rea, and her lineage of Yoga Prana Flow.
The Sacred Path of the Warrior in the Shambhala Tradition, as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, is the core foundation of my meditation practice, which is in constant evolution.
I completed a five-year mentorship with Sundust Oracle Institute under the compassionate guidance of medicine woman Char Sundust. Currently studying with renowned teachers and shamans Christina Pratt and Sandra Ingerman.
In the last five years I have also embarked upon a deep healing in the ancient path of the vegetalismo. Currently learning under the guidance of Shipibo shaman Ricardo Amaringo. In Shamanic Cultures plants and trees are considered the real university and pharmacy available to us. I travel to South America on a regular basis.
I am also a creative dakini, who has been studying and practicing the art of ikebana (flower arrangements) from the Sogetzu school. I find a daily delight in the creation of altars and sacred space. I write poetry and dance to celebrate the privilege of being human.
My lifework is to integrate Material and Spiritual. My background in Sustainable Business encompasses 20 years of executive experience in the Health, Fitness & Wellness space.
Over the last 15 years I have studied meditation under the Shambhala Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa Rimpoche and Holistic Yoga under the compassionate guidance of Saul David Raye.
Years of Shamanic practice in the vegetalismo tradition have added substantial transpersonal healing to my being and a completely new layer of depth to the very practical integration work I’m called to do in this lifetime.
These wisdom disciplines and training systems have crystalized the idea that Mind, Body and Heart must go together in achieving real wellness and living from one’s own true center.
My classes, coaching sessions, workshops and retreats are a journey of healing and transformation that stoke one’s vital energy through the pathways of the breath, heart and gut. ivogrossi.com is a place for me to share my ideas on the things I love.
