This 15-hour seminar is an opportunity for transformation. Step into a space that is designed for you to safely dive deep within yourself, to heal any wounds life has left you with and to tend to scars of struggles you’ve overcome.

With anxiety, hyper-stress, depression and sleep dysfunction skyrocketing around the globe, it’s time we look at the unspoken reasons why – and take action.

The specific cause of anxiety takes on a different form for everyone. However there is a very clear common denominator. The emotional challenges that lie at the base of anxiety, panic attacks and depression are due to being taught socially from a very young age to suppress and numb our feelings, leaving us carrying a silo of emotions in our chest of un-reconciled and unexpressed emotions.

Using breathing patterns for 20 minutes daily, as taught by Max Strom, can bring you back to a peaceful and calm state as well as gift you with insight and knowledge that was buried along with your feelings. With this new insight you’ll feel empowered to make new and meaningful life decisions. In just a few short days you will have experienced the difference and gained the knowledge to help you transform your internal state, prevent future anxiety, and help others to do so.

All levels are welcome. No previous experience necessary. The Breathe to Heal seminar is also extremely useful for medical practitioners, therapists, and yoga teachers who want to incorporate this work into their healing repertoire.

“I spent a lot of time exploring various meditative and movement practices. However, it wasn’t until I found Max’s Inner Axis approach that I was able to finally recover from decades of battling depression and anxiety. I can’t express how grateful I am for what Max has created – it is simple and yet also deeply impactful.” – Carrie Snyder, Circular Economy Consultant and Instructor at Harvard Extension School
