Pulsation Breathwork

  • East Bay Community Space 507 55th Street Oakland, CA United States (map)

Returning after a SOLD OUT debut in March...

Pulsation is a Holotropic-style breathwork done lying down, with people taking turns in pairs. Imagine getting the beneficial effects of a plant medicine like ayahuasca... but without ingesting any substance, and with much quicker integration/returning to ordinary consciousness. That's what Pulsation offers!


One person lies on a mat and the other one supports them. Each person goes through three rounds of breathing up to peak capacity, and at the end of each round there's a period of physical release (for example, pounding the feet down or the arms down) that often brings about a vocal catharsis (yelling and other noises).

Transformational facilitator Nick Meador moves around the room guiding the whole time, giving verbal encouragement and occasionally providing an adjustment (similar to in yoga, but more like acupressure... and only with advance consent) to help flush things out.


The experience is like a purging of energetic gunk that has been stuck waaaay down in our system from trauma, negative cultural and family conditioning, heartbreak, and other painful/challenging experiences.

Unlike breathwork practices which can send people into other dimensions, Pulsation has built-in precautions to keep you grounded and safe, and to help you gently find your way back to ordinary consciousness afterwards.

☆ This is a BS Free Spirituality experience. The container is CONSENSUAL (you decide what’s right for you) and CONFIDENTIAL (take only your own experience out with you). ☆

☆ Wear loose-fitting clothes and bring a water bottle and notebook (if you want to journal). Take some time to prepare an intention for the experience, and come well-rested. There's no need to come in a pair. Everyone will be matched with someone according to greatest comfort and ease. ☆
