Ecstatic Breathwork 5-day Online Course with One Commune

We all can (and must) breathe–and thus we all have the capability to experience the profound physiological, emotional, and spiritual effects of breathwork. 

Breathwork has been used for thousands of years to access the stillness that exists beyond the thinking mind. It is an indispensable method for supporting the body’s peak health and vitality, increasing concentration and awareness, and experiencing profound love and fulfilment from within.

This five-day journey, which includes both lecture and guided breathwork by master teacher Scott Schwenk, creates a safe, accessible container to begin (or build upon) a transformative breathwork practice.

What You'll Learn


A powerful, three-part breathing pattern that will optimize the body, digest old and current emotions, and dissolve the tyranny of the ego-based thinking mind 

The simple, accessible tools (such as laughter) you can draw on to deepen your practice

How to use breathwork to tone the vagus nerve and reduce stress, anxiety, depression and inflammation and improve resilience and immunity

How to use the breath to access non-ordinary states of consciousness

How to integrate the insights you'll gain in this course into your everyday life

The Power of Presence: a 25 Hour Training

Radical Evolution in One-On-One Transformational Work

You’ve been feeling the stirring for some time, an inner calling. In this 25-hour training, we’ll unpack the levers and dials for facilitating one-on-one transformational work that leads to radical evolution. The training will unfold through the lens of learning to facilitate one-on-one breathwork sessions. You will take leaps in the recognition and trust in intuitive gifts, learn to use less personal energy and more Universal energy in all of your interactions, grow your capacities to facilitate ongoing transformation through Presence-based dialoguing, and through the training, radically evolve as a person, a leader, and a conduit for healing and evolution Waking Up more deeply and Growing Up more fully.

How to Register:

go HERE on the Wanderlust Hollywood website, or register in-person at the Studio.

Flow of Training:

This will be a very hands-on practical training combined with theory and philosophy to round out deeper wisdom and greater skill-in-action. The five weeks between the in-person weekends is intentionally placed to allow for the homework reading, practices, and practice sessions that are key to realizations, empowerments, and initiations to not only take hold, but grow deep roots and bear fruit for you and the people in your lives.

You do not have to want to work with clients after this training. The lion’s share of participants will be taking this training to radically deepen their own embodied Waking Up and Growing Up processes, to become powerfully more true to oneself and one’s true pathway in life with deeper self-love, granular recognition of and trust in one’s intuitive gifts, and skill and nimbleness in one-on-one interactions — specifically beneficial to leaders, therapists, trainers, healers, CEOs, creative directors and more.

The more deeply we Wake Up and Grow Up, the less personal biological energy we deplete, learning instead to recognize and utilize vast limitless universal energy flows for the highest good of all involved.

Come to this Training curious, in a mood of discovery of self, world and others, ready and willing for your worldview to shift and expand, with an open heart, open mind, and open will. Full participation in the training and homework leads to coming out of this training in an entirely fresh perspective on yourself and all of life.

With deep love and respect, I invite you to step into this opportunity to grow.

I’ll be leading 5 Workshops, each focused through the lens Meditation and Ecstatic Breathwork.

What’s a day at Snowshoe like? Start off at sunrise with stand-up paddle board yoga on Shavers Lake, nestled in the local Appalachian mountains. Dry off, then invigorate your mind with an inspiring Speakeasy talk, grab a bite from a delicious local food truck, or learn to fly in an acroyoga class. In the evening, come alive at Nahko & Medicine for the People’s mainstage performance, or lose yourself in the beats of three dueling DJs at our signature silent disco. That’s just a taste. Wanderlust Snowshoe serves up countless ways to discover something deep.
