I created Samadhi Breathwork to combine my work in indigenous healing arts, western healing modalities, yoga and Clarity Breathwork.
Leonard Orr is a disciple of Shri Mahavatar Babaji, From 1977 to 1984, Babaji told Orr that Rebirthing Breathwork, including spiritual purification with the elements, was the new yoga for liberation and self mastery, appropriate for our present civilization.
I visited Haidakhan in 2010 and spent 10 days meditating in the cave that Babaji manifested in order to experience Shri Mahavatar Babaji‘s energy. At that time, Shri Maha Muniraji, who was then the Guruji of Haidakhan, gave me the name Maya. My time in India inspired me to put an emphasis on yoga and I completed a 300 hour yoga teacher training in 2012 with Richard Rosen, Mary Paffard, Yoko Yoshikawa, Baxter Bell, Vicky Bell and Ann Dyer.in the San Francisco Bay Area.
My Indigenous background gave me a natural aptitude for navigating trance states and an interest in facilitating them for others. Training in Clarity Breathwork, my time in Haidakhan, my Yoga Teacher Training, my work with South Indian Master Teacher Mata Amritanandamayi and recently my work with the Kogi and Arhuaco in the Sierra Nevada in Columbia brought forward the teachings Babaji’s imparted to Leonard Orr. Especially the teachings about how to work with the elements – earth, air, water, and fire to purify spirit, mind and body and understand how to work with the elements in a boarder sense, in the worlds. It has also opened a new connection to the akash, or 5th element.
I find that the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali incorporates and grounds what I have learned and continue to practice. They are my tried and true map to the study of consciousness and ultimately awareness.
Samadhi Breathwork utilizes a specific pranayama to induce the highest and purist frequency of nature known as awareniess or samadhi.
According to the Yoga Sutras there are 10 types of samadhi that build on each other as consciousness builds in the practitioner and ultimately defines awareness.
Consciousness, like everything else in nature is always in flux, but the amount of fluctuation slows when we are in meditative states and can slow enough for awareness to arise. In other words, it is possible to exist in a place of pure mental freedom called the present moment. WE can exist in a beautiful state of stillness completely devoid of the mental anguish.
It’s as easy as breathing to achieve.
We don’t have to live lives full of regret fearing the future. We don’t have to be so preoccupied with hectic daily life that we forget how to relax and yet so few people experience stillness regularly that the idea has become unimaginable. Profound stillness is seen as an altered or trance state and seekers have a mysterious longing for it. They strive for something called being awake. Interestingly, being in the present moment is like waking up out of a long and not so great dream.
A natural ability to live in the grace of our infinite potential is not limited to gods or sages.
My mission is to show people how to wake up to or in other words unlock the door to the freedom that is their birthright and reclaim their awareness.
