Gwen was born in Italy, grew up in Tunisia, and attended boarding schools in Europe throughout high school before moving to the United States to attend Stanford University. She credits her diversity in cultural experiences as the most formative education of her life - one that provides her a unique breadth of vision and perspective upon which she draws on in her work today.

 

It was through her lifelong love of Yoga and Dance that she was able to understand the powerful and transformative effect that breath can provide. This, in turn, inspired her to become a Breathworker and Hypnotherapist in 2000 at the BodyMind Academy in Bellevue, Washington. She is an avid learner and has continued to hone her skills over the last 20 years with many certifications in a variety of disciplines.

 

As the founder of, “Breath is Prayer” and “Inspired Sedona”, she intuitively employs a combination of Breathwork, The Passion Test, Family Constellations, Hypnotherapy, Coaching, Yoga, and Dance to guide and support people in coming home to their true nature and remaining consciously connected to their essential truth. In her work with clients, she invites her clients to explore their inner landscapes, to step into their most authentic, empowered self and to choose a path that honors themselves

and their purpose.

Ocean Eagle’s life’s trajectory was forever altered on May 4th, 2019 in his first Shamanic Breathwork session in Sedona, Arizona. While at the “The Gathering of the Shamans”, he attended Linda Star Wolf’s Shamanic Breathwork workshop. 85 people breathed that day and the session blew Ocean Eagle apart. The expansion of love for humanity and Mother Earth was overwhelming. He had done 4 years of deep diving soul retrieval, inner child work prior to the event and was ready for his Truth and Essence to expose themselves to him. Breathwork was the trigger! After the gathering that weekend (which is also where Star Wolf gave Marty his spirit name “Ocean Eagle”), he went home and changed One Thing in his
life…..Everything! In the past 2 years, he has traveled the world extensively including 4 trips to Peru to study and train with the Q’ero Paqos, and spent 2 weeks with 40 shamanic souls from 15 countries at Teotihuacan, Mexico training in Shamanic Breathwork. He has now embodied his own sacred style called Activation Breathwork. He channels the playlist to begin in the root chakra and activates all 7 chakras during the session. All you have to do is surrender to your breath, leave all expectations at the door, and trust that Ocean Eagle has the container held.
