Shamanic Breathing to Create the Psychedelic Experience Discussed by Shamanic Healer

Shamanic healer and teacher Anahata Ananda of Shamangelic Healing, Sedona Arizona’s Premier Center for Shamanic Healing and Spiritual Awakening, was a featured guest on the radio show Psychedelic Milk, an international podcast hosted by Ed Liu.

Anahata sat down with Ed Liu to discuss shamanic breathwork, its relationship to psychedelics, and how to attract, begin and maintain good and mindful relationships.

During the podcast Anahata talks about the art of breathing and how it can bring a person into the same states of consciousness and deep insight as can be achieved with psychedelic plants. For some, ingesting psychedelics is neither desirable nor practical to their lives. But breathing, as Anahata points out, is foundational to all states of consciousness. Shamanic breathwork, she explains, can be as effective for some as ingesting psychedelics is for others.

Psychedelic Milk Podcast is an independent media collective that takes a deeper look into the world of psychedelics through interviews and discussions. Psychedelic Milk also aims to investigate both old and new consciousness-opening techniques to see what roles they can play in our modern world.

During the podcast Anahata talks about the art of breathing and how, when guided by a skilled teacher who knows how to hold space for the powerful emotions that arise during a ceremony, Shamanic Breathwork can bring one to the same profound insights, and into the higher realms of consciousness, as ingesting psychedelics would, only with more lasting results. She continues with the discussion by talking about how one can not only use breathwork to become adept at sustaining higher states of consciousness throughout their daily life, but how they can also shift that awareness into better, healthier relationships.

“Shamanic ceremony is meant to take one to their edge, and the edge is where the growth is,” Anahata explains. “The new information for self-awareness one gets from the shamanic ceremony is enormously helpful for breaking old patterns of thought and perception and reshaping relationships into healthier ways of being.”

Anahata also talks about the detoxifying benefits of Shamanic Breathing, from clearing the pineal gland to opening the channels of energy that facilitate higher states of consciousness. Her Shamanic Breathwork technique teaches one how to access these higher states of consciousness on a regular basis in ordinary life, outside of the ceremonial event of ingesting the plant. She also explains the difference between Shamanic Breathwork and daily breathing practices such as pranyama for mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. Anahata also discusses the benefits of meditation as a powerful complement to Shamanic Breathwork.
