Philippa Wilkin: The Transformational Power of the Breath (HEx Podcast #21)
Transformational Breath is a type of conscious connected breathing. It’s a breathing awareness practice, and it’s also a breath control practice. Essentially we breathe in what I’d describe as a conscious rhythmic way where we don’t pause in-between the inhale and the exhale. So we breathe in one continuous loop. And this type of breathing can help us tap into altered states. So we can use different types of breath to induce a trance-like state.

— Philippa Wilkin, HEx Podcast #21

Philippa Wilkin is a radiant, beaming healer and facilitator who uses the transformational power of the breath to help people let go of blocked emotions and live a flourishing and free existence.

I first met Philippa at the first HighExistence Apotheosis retreat—she agreed to facilitate last minute.

When I attended her breathwork workshop I was expecting good things, but what actually happened I could never expect. It was totally mind blowing and changed my opinion on the breath forever (we talk about this in more depth in the podcast).

The breath is a profound healing tool, and if you’re not using it you are missing a very important area for transformation.
