Holo-Sonic Breathwork – A Breath and Sound Journey
with Loriel Starr
2:00pm – 5:00pm (doors at 1:30pm)
at The Berkeley Alembic
(2820 Seventh Street Berkeley, CA 94710)
Stay tuned for our next Holo-Sonic Breathwork event!
During this afternoon of holo-sonic breathwork, we will work with breath and sound to support a shift in energetic and psychological states.
Breath and Sound are powerful tools for self-exploration, transformation and healing. Our breath is intimately connected to our “life essence”, our energy and our spirit. Working with breath and sound can support a shift in energetic and psychological states in order to bring a greater sense of coherence, wholeness and harmony.
Our Holo-Sonic journey will follow a sequence of steps:
- After a brief introduction, we will tune in to our intentions
- Sounding and toning will begin vibrational opening in the body and psyche
- Our journey will continue into Breathwork and an evocative musical soundscape
- We will transition into a rich soundscape of singing bowls, gongs and other sound healing instruments to help clear, open and balance the vibrational field of body, mind and spirit.
- Our journey will complete with a closing circle and time for integration.
IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION:
WHAT TO BRING – Please make sure to bring your own yoga mat or blanket to lie down on and a water bottle. Additional items that can be helpful to support your comfort are an extra blanket, a pillow and an eye covering.
HOW TO PREPARE – It’s best to practice Breathwork on either an empty stomach or having eaten very little. It’s also a good idea to allow for time after your workshop session for self-care. Many people find that it’s supportive for their integration to have an uneventful and quieter evening for rest, reflection and self-nurturing.
IMPORTANT!! – DOORS OPEN AT 1:30 PM – PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ARRIVE BEFORE 2 PM so that you can get settled before the event begins at 2 PM. The doors will close promptly at 2 pm in order to begin the workshop.

*** Breathwork can be physically/emotionally activating, it is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, have severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, asthma, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, recent major surgeries and/or communicable diseases.
