About The Event

The  blue lotus is a true mystical flower, blossoming only tree days per  year, rising up from the mud, symbolising purity and resurrection.  Traditionally used as a sleep aid, detoxifying agent, and aphrodisiac,  it is rich in antioxidants and widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. In  ancient Egypt and in Mayan culture the flower was used for rituals and  shamanic ceremonies. It’s not a coincidence that the symbol can be found  on every single sacred structure in Egypt; on pillars, thrones, and  even crowns of the Divine Kings.

Doing  inner work, and specifically shadow work can be daunting. Perhaps we  subconsciously know that when we begin this work, there's no way back,  pushing us to make significant changes to how we're living our lives.  There are plenty of tools to support us on this journey, two of those  are breathwork and meditation.

Breathwork  has many benefits, including physical benefits and regulating the  nervous system. It can also influence our mental and emotional state,  and it's a powerful practice to explore and alter our consciousness.  It's a tool to uncover our shadows, inviting us to experience snippets  of (or full-blown) enlightenment.

Meditation is a useful tool to firmly ground ourselves, obtain new perspectives and to integrate powerful experiences, death meditation adds  an additional layer. Why would we contemplate death already? It's a way  to become familiar and intimate with endings; your skin, organs,  lifeforce, your breath. This physical experience will end some day, and  as some claim… death could potentially be the most significant moment of  enlightenment. Avoiding the fact that we are mortal obstructs our sense  of peace, freedom and sending & receiving love. In other words:  when we innerstand that death means irreversible change, we are able to live our lives more meaningfully.

The subtle effects of blue lotus tea are  a perfect companion for breathwork, gently blurring the border between  the seen and unseen dimensions. It can help us relax, make us more open  to receiving, it boosts creativity and enhances lucidity, visions and  introspection

Are you ready to embark on an inner exploration? To breathe, pause & imagine. We hope to see you there!

About the facilitators:

Myrthe is  a certified birth & end of life doula, offering people choice and  companionship during life’s greatest transitions. The end of life space  is one of her biggest passions, and she firmly believes that embracing  this particular space as an entire chapter opens up a whole new  experience of life.

She  creates a safe space for individuals and groups to explore and  experience death & dying, grief & loss. This space is  characterised by total transparency, bridge building between the medical  world and our human experience, and simple ways to integrate new  perspectives.

Working  with altered states of consciousness takes an important place in her  work as this can be a powerful catalyst for healing, becoming familiar  with death & grief and therefore, living life more fully.

Nicolas is  a certified Breathwork facilitator, DJ, storyteller, and psychedelic  medicine spaceholder. Nature lover and deeply passionate about altered  states of consciousness, he is on an ongoing journey learning about  himself, holistic practices & therapies, and psychedelics. For him,  altered states are not only tool to heal our deepest wounds and obtain  new insights, but also a key to surpass our economic, cultural and  environmental challenges.

Founder  of Mud Moss Magic and co-founder of Chival, Nicolas has impacted many  lives during his weekly breathwork journeys at the Little Yoga Space in the heart of Lisbon. He has organised and hosted many successful events related to altered states with Psychonauts Lisboa, which he founded druing the spring of 2022.
