La Madre Breath of Life is a somatic body-breath technology that opens deep, visceral, personal connections to the grace, beauty and creative potential of a potent, intimate, expressed relationships with the present moment. Mastering breath teaches us to express and co-create with infinite, quantum consciousness.
La Madre Breath of Life focuses on the breathing process as a potent entry into self-healing and self-knowing.
It intends to create a precise vocabulary of the breathing process so that people can enter the inner terrain of their breath and know how to engage their life force. La Madre invites people to become intimate with the inner universe of their body.
We then utilize the expressive capacity of our body, our movement and vocal play, to generate an immediate feedback loop that assists us to recognize our part in the play of each moment. Thus we awaken.
Ruth Gould-Goodman is a pioneer guide to conscious embodiment. The first step is to help her students become intimate with the anatomy, physiology and spiritual potency of our breathing body. With breath as the inner guide Ruth then invites authentic voice, movement and inner story to come forward. She empowers the expressive, creative capacity of each person to stretch beyond previous limitations to recognize their unique genius and mastery. Ruth began her body-based exploration of consciousness in dance therapy at NYU’s Health and Healing Professions Master’s program. She then continued her studies of embodied spirituality by becoming an Acupuncturist, an Energy Healer and a student of Sufism, Taoism and Tantric Tibetan Buddhism.
Conscious Body Energetics (CBE) is the modality used in Ruth’s private healing sessions with clients. Ruth developed this work in 1992 to treat the whole person, their body, emotions and spirit. As both a hands-on and remote energetic modality, CBE attunes to the subtle body and communes directly with the body’s wisdom through intentional touch.
The bodywork incorporates a sensitive, intuitive acupressure style which focuses on releasing the potent energy around joints and bones. Ruth also heals off the physical body with a finely tuned sensitivity to energy currents of micro-systems, meridians and emotions. CBE encourages self-healing by teaching others to cultivate the power of their mind to shift focus in the body through subtle breath entrained conscious movements. This brings forward the repressed energies of our underground stories. Ruth is a space holder for these different states of being to be experienced in a non-reactive frame. This allows old repressed patterns to unwind and reveal themselves as the wisdom teachers they are.
