When: Sunday June 26, 2022
What: Integrative Breathwork and Art Experiential
Who: with Certified Breathwork facilitator Lynne Forrest and
Registered, Board Certified Art Therapist Jas Milam
Where: Barking Legs Theater, Chattanooga TN
Hours: 9am – 5pm
Cost: $135/person – bring a light lunch.
This daylong workshop will combine evocative sound, cyclic breath, applied bodywork and art-making to create a powerful, safe and personal journey into your inner terrain for the purpose of clearing and transformation.
Breathwork invokes a deep self-awareness that allows us to recognize and release our limiting storylines, unwind “stuck” places in the psyche, and merge into a sense of Universal Oneness. It offers us an opportunity to let-go and trust our inner guide, and it facilitates a level of healing that talk therapy can not address.
Each person will also have the chance to create a community art mandala and share in a debriefing and grounding process that rounds out the day.
Come alone or bring other(s). Breathwork is an accelerated and transformational growth experience that you are unlikely to forget!
Registration is limited.
About Lynne Forrest
Lynne has been working with individuals and groups professionally since 1973. Starting as a “Personal Growth Counselor” in Chattanooga, TN. Much of her work in the early days revolved around addiction, co-dependency issues and “family-of-origin” cultural dynamics. Through face-to-face interaction with hundreds of clients, applying principles and teachings from Carl Jung, Fritz Perl’s Gestalt Therapy, and Eric Berne’s Transactional Analysis, as well as the universal laws of manifestation, body oriented practices (such as yoga, myofascial unwinding, and qigong) she has continued to develop and expand her simple, straight forward, and practical approach to awakening, and living a happier, more fulfilling life.

About Jas Milam
Jas is a Registered Art Therapist, Board Certified and artist and has over 30 years of recovery and experience in Jungian theory, self-discovery and 12 step programs. She has participated in many treatment and therapeutic modalities over time and believes that Integrative Breathwork and art-making have accelerated her healing and spiritual growth. She sees individuals, couples and groups over Zoom and at her studio/office Daily Practice and teaches Introduction to Art Therapy at Southern University. About Breathwork she writes… Here is what i know about the experiential, “alternative” therapies. Just as we have different learning styles so we have different healing styles. 35+ years ago I was plunged into suicidal, codependent grief at 18 months sober. I could talk about grief or read about grief or learn about grief and satisfy my left brain but it was not until I was able to CONNECT TO and MOVE THROUGH the grief that the actual healing began. I found an experiential therapist (Lynne!) and many techniques designed to break through “thinkers” like me – Gestalt sculpting, unwinding and other applied body work, art making, dream work, Jungian thought/shadow/archetype etc. Breathwork combines many of these techniques (plus evocative music!) to provide an accelerated, powerful process that resonates deeply with me. I have breathed many dozen times; Lynne hundreds. Breathwork is a vehicle to the collective unconscious that we know only from dreaming, or “getting lost” in a painting, or mediation or other altered states of consciousness. It is the place where healing occurs through release and transformation. We invite you to take part in this unique opportunity in Chattanooga the Sunday after Fathers Day. Participants will learn and use The Breath and music to journey exactly where they most need to go – to identify, feel, and move through it. “The only way out it is through it”. Art making and process group will help participants bridge and incorporate the Breathwork experience into a meaningful and grounded new level of self; deeper, more authentically you.
