My First Shamanic Breathwork Journey
As I travel back through my timeline to the moment of my first Shamanic Breathwork Journey, I recall experiencing a mystical stream of memories and knowings. It seemed as if decades and generations of pain, wildness, suffering, anger, eros, suppressed love, divine awareness and fear came pouring out of the pore of my skin,
from every cell in my body....
Shamanic Breathwork is all about...
Shamanic Breathwork is an experiential journey about clearing, reclamation, healing and letting go of whatever is no longer working in your life. It is about awakening access to more of your authentic self and your inner wisdom beyond.
It involves cyclical breathing, chakra-attuned music, focused energy-work, bodywork, artistic expression and community sharing. It provides you with a loving container where you can experience the healing transformations that unfold during altered states of consciousness.
Shamanic Breathwork honours and blends the timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with the emerging new paradigm methods of healing. It functions as the rainbow bridge between these two worlds honouring the best of both worlds while creating a bridge for body, mind, heart, soul and spirit.
The 5-Day Shamanic Breathwork Journey experience
This journey is a deep dive into a series of Breathwork Journeys. The themes of the 5-day arch will be; the exploration of what is held in the physical body, the emotional body, our soul purpose, ancestral lines and imprints of our DNA. Each day will also include sharing circles, movement, intention rituals and elemental meditations.
The core intention is to explore the celebration and reclamation of life force, the death and letting go of that which no longer serves us and the embracing of the rebirths that wish to land in - or return to us.
During this week we will combine the power of breathwork with the Shamanic Shakti Art Process. This deepens and enriches the harvesting of the gifts and awareness of the journey itself. Each Ceremony will also include a small group witnessing and processing circle.
This Journey is created with love and care at its core, inviting you to a safer space to feel and transform. This is also a brave space; one that invites you to tap into your courage and intention to meet all that may arise.
This journey is intended to support you on a deep personal exploration of Shamanic Breathwork. It is not a facilitator training, although it may inspire and prepare you to take this path, like it did me.
One of the beings that went before you
on a Shamanic Breathwork Journey with Elaine
It was a great experience. Elaine has an amazing energy and warmth that you'll feel as soon as you meet her and be put at ease. I'm very new to this type of experience and I felt very safe and welcome to a really nice group of people whom I'd never met before and shared the day with. I definitely felt I started on some sort of journey...I'll be back for more it's a powerful process.

About the Creator & Facilitator
I am immensely grateful to be sharing with you an offering that has been evolving in me for some years. My life and my being were forever changed from the moment I took my first Shamanic Breathwork session in 2012. I took the SHIP Initiation as a Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator and was ordained as a Shamanic Minister in 2013 by Linda Star Wolf, creator of the Shamanic Breathwork process.
My journey has involved a lifelong fascination and inquiry into awareness, purpose, the human condition, love, sexuality, spiritual connection, soul wisdom, expansion, learning, unlearning, meditation, physiology, health, disease, exploring aliveness, death and grief.
For over 10 years I have been working with groups and individuals, to create integrated journeys that support the intention of the retreat spaces that I offer. I draw from different lineages and modalities, including Tantric and Shamanic practices, Somatic Sexology, Sexological Bodywork and Shamanic Breathwork.
I am a Group Facilitator, Educator, Coach, Guide, and Energy-/Bodyworker in the fields of Consciousness, Breathwork, Sacred Sexuality, Somatic Sexology and Shamanism. Some of my certifications include specialities such as Certified Sexological Bodyworker and Certified Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator.
Until recently, I was a Lead Faculty member of the International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) from 2015 to 2022 and part of this global Tribe of humans since 2012. I led many level 1 (called SSSEx) and level 2 (called SSSIn) journeys in many countries around the globe.
Currently, I mainly offer deep-dive experiential retreats. ‘The Journeys’ is a series of 5 to 7 Day retreats I created and facilitate, to explore and reset our relationship to Pleasure, Breath and Energy. These retreats include educational components however they are primarily deep embodiment journeys harnessing Somatic, Tantric & Shamanic Explorations.

What participants expressed
after being on a Journey with Elaine
Oh my Goodness where shall I start?? Just came back from attending the Shamanic Breathwork Journey workshop and had SUCH a phenomenal experience. Elaine Young has to be one of the coolest shaman practitioner out there, she oozes wisdom, integrity and beauty. She is such an inspiration! Her workshop was very powerful and exquisitely lead. I felt very safe and supported by her and Simon her facilitator, which allowed me to deeply connect with the exercises, meditations and breathwork. What a workshop, thank you!
An excellent well led workshop. I had a wonderful breathwork journey. I arrived home feeling peaceful, positive and well nourished in a soulful spiritual sense. The space holders were intuitively right there when needed and you could feel them in the space at all times and their awareness. I would thoroughly recommend this.
A powerful wise master. I’m deeply grateful for all the transmissions you shared with us. Thank you for the commitment you have to your own journey that has led you to where you are now to share the wisdom with us all. Appreciate and love your humor as well. Your authenticity and raw transparent power made me feel incredibly safe and supported. I felt so held in your way of holding space. You are a true inspiration to me. Thank you.
