Navigating modern spirituality with breathwork – with Ben Holt

Untethered with Jen Liss

14-11-2023 • 30 mins

How do breathwork and spirituality relate to one another? For those who have "lost" our religion, how do we start to navigate what spirituality really means to us?

This is, in part, what Ben Holt came on the podcast to share with us today. Ben is a breathworker and teacher whose long journey of coming home to himself laid the foundation for creating a big, beautiful impact in the world through his offerings and businesses.

In this conversation, Ben bridges ancient wisdom with modern insights to share how plant medicine, breathwork, and other holistic practices have supported him along his own spiritual journey – and how technology is part of the awakening that, in his eyes, is elevating our collective consciousness in a positive way.

We unravel the historical significance of breath in various spiritual traditions, discussing into its role as a bridge connecting the physical and spiritual worlds and the science behind intentional breathing and its profound effects on our physiology and mental well-being.

Ben sees breathwork as a potent tool for supporting people in untethering from the societal conditioning that's keeping us in a state of human suffering so we can come home to what is truly meaningful to us.

Takeaways from this episode:

  1. If you see someone who has achieved success, there's been a decade of  doubts, fear, and unworthiness they've overcome.
  2. Despite the negativity visible in the world around us, we are evolving in an upward trend.
  3. Be open to seeing reality for what it actually is, instead of fixating on it being something familiar to you.
  4. You can experience "God" within yourself, and breathwork is a way of helping you do that.
  5. Magic is all around you, but you have to be willing to let go of everything you've been told to truly see it.

This episode is part of Brilliance of Breathwork Month, an initiative bringing greater awareness to this transformative healing modality.
