– Today we’re going to
make ourselves hallucinate by simply breathing. – Let’s talk about that. (playful theme music) Good Mythical Morning. – Tripping isn’t just for
hippies who take illegal drugs, or people who forget to tie their shoes, no, it can be for everyone
now because of something called holotropic breathwork. – Yeah, holotropic
breathwork is a specific type of breathing method
that when done correctly can induce hallucinations. But will it for us? Let’s find out, We ‘Bout
to Breathe from Our Snouts to See if We Trip Outs. Okay, typically holotropic
breathwork is done within the context of
a therapeutic session, and based on the vidoes
I’ve seen, it can get pretty intense, sometimes
the sessions last up to three hours, we’re
gonna see what we can experience in under 10 minutes. – And now, there are some risks associated with this exercise, and we’re not completely
familiar with all of ’em, but we’re gonna take our
risk and do it ourselves, but we advise you not to
do it, just watch us do it. Welcome to our zen den. We have all the accoutrements
of a typical zen den. We have plant life, we have that thing. – You can change behind there. – We have this thing. – We’re also dressed like
this, and I can’t decide if I’m about to perform
jiu-jitsu or paint a house. – Now in order to do this correctly, you gotta be dressed
correctly, you gotta have the right setting, but we
just can’t do this on our own, we need a breathwork facilitator, and we’ve thought of everything, please welcome Harris Adell. – Welcome Harris. – Thank you, thanks guys for having me. I’ve also brought my friend
Sean, and he’s going to be providing the soundscape for us– – That’s why he’s here, I
didn’t introduce myself yet, I was a little uncomfortable,
but you’re gonna be providing the sounds. I’m ready to channel
the messages of my body. – Sure, yeah, let’s go
ahead and get settled, and just get comfortable and make yourself at home in your zen den. – Do I do dead person hands or do I do? – I’ll guide you through that, too. So to start, I just
want to walk you through what the breath is, just
give you some information about what you might expect in your body, physical sensations. The breath is in and
out through the mouth, and it’s you inhale into
your stomach (inhale), into your chest (inhale), and out through your mouth (exhale). – Do I have to make the noise? – It helps to make noise,
the sighing helps move any energy stagnation out of your body, and so I’ll tell you when to start, and things to expect– – Thought I started. – Things to expect, there
is a sensation and connition that happens sometimes
called Temi, where your hands will clench up like lobster claws. – Timmy
– Yes. – Is it named after, it
happened to a boy named Timmy? – It’s a medical acronym. – I just would request that
both of you call me Timmy the rest of this exercise. – Okay Timmy.
– Alright, so just relax, remember that you’re
safe and just keep breathing. So, you guys ready? – Timmy is ready. – Timmy number two is ready. – We’re gonna start, we’re
gonna do seven cycles of this breath, going
through each of our seven energy centers in the
body, and I’ll be walking you through that, and guiding
you on this breath journey, and Sean’s going to be also supporting us in this process and guiding us with sound. – He’s like a breath DJ. – Yes, exactly. – DJ Breath’s in the corner. – Exactly. – So we’re gonna start in the root. So if you want, you can put
your hands on your root center, the base of your spine, yes, perfect. So in through the mouth, the
stomach, the chest, and out. Just keep breathing. (inhales and exhales) Just keep breathing. This is our root center. We’re clearing the space out. We’re cleansing, we’re purifying, bringing new oxygen into
this part of our body. Just stay with the breath. – Feeling lightheaded. Is that good? – Just keep breathing, whatever happens, just surrender to it, just keep going. (breathing sounds) Good, that’s our anchor point. Just keep breathing. – And feeling lightheaded is fine? – Yes, that’s normal. (breathing sounds) Keep breathing. – I feel like my ears are leaving my head. – Yeah, that’s normal,
totally normal, keep going. (breathing sounds) And wrapping up with this energy center, taking a deep breath in, and exhaling completely. Just noticing the difference in your body from when we started to now. – My ears are tingling big time. – Yeah, that’s good,
you’re doing it right. – Timmy feels good. – Good, so moving up to our sacral center, so putting your hands on your belly, and we’re gonna start the breath again. (breathing sounds) Breathing into your sea of creativity, your life force center. Using the breath to release
any stress, anxiety. Any anger, feelings, emotions
you haven’t expressed, just keep breathing, let it go. – Why do my eyes want to cross? – That’s normal, you can
close them if that helps. Just tune in to your inner landscape. (breathing sounds) Keep breathing, inviting any
sensations that are coming up, just be, just be present of
what’s coming up for you. – I feel like we’re going too fast. – Keep going, stay with the breaths. – My ears are leaving my head. – That’s good. Keep breathing, last couple breaths. And taking a deep inhale,
and exhaling completely. Moving up into your solar
plexus, so that area right below your heart and your ribcage. – My arms are floating. – I feel like my eyebrows landed on me. – Good, good, we’re doing it right guys, let’s keep going. So starting the breath again. (breathing sounds) This is the seat of your personal power. Breathing in that empowerment, that I am declaration, your courage. Breathing in this brilliant yellow light into your body, good. Stay present, keep breathing. – My neck’s is tingling. – Oh no, I thought you were about to talk about your nipples. – My nips are tingling, too. – Are you mad at your nipples? I’m mad at my eyebrows. – Stay with the breath, keep breathing. – My abdomen’s getting really tight. – Keep breathing through that tightness, just welcoming any sensations, emotions, just being present with it. Good, taking a deep breath
in, and exhaling completely. Awesome, awesome. Now moving into the heart, so we’re gonna start the breath again, and just do your best
to stay with the breath. (breathing sounds) – My tummy feels tired. My lips are tight, I like can’t
close my mouth on my teeth. – That’s totally normal, keep breathing. – Oh, everything just got very funny. – Good, keep breathing, keep breathing. – Everything is so ridiculous. – My hands are tingling and sweating. – Oh, we shouldn’t have done this. – Keep breathing. – I feel good. – Now I’m starting to cry. – Do your best to stay with the breath. – Why is Timmy sad? Why is Timmy sad about his eyebrows? – Keep breathing.
– I’m crying, look. I’m, does that happen? – Yes, yes, it’s totally normal. – Cry Timmy, just cry Timmy.
– Yeah, let it out, let it out. (breathing sounds) – My chest is buzzing.
– That’s good. – It’s full of bees.
– Moving energy. – I feel like bees are about
to explode out of my chest. – Good, that’s good,
you’re doing it right. Take a deep breath in
and exhale completely. Then moving into the throat. – Touch the throat? – Yeah, and then we’re gonna
start the breath again. (breathing sounds) – How tight on the neck? – Not tight, just loose. Yeah, don’t choke yourself. – I’m choking myself out.
– Yeah, don’t need to do that. Just keep breathing. Maybe close your eyes. Feel into your throat. Notice any tightness. – My pits are sweating. – That’s normal, that’s totally normal, you’re doing it right guys. I’m proud of you, keep breathing. (breathing sounds) – My feet, Timmy’s feet got real cold real fast. – Keep breathing. Good, good. Stay with the breath. Good, last couple breaths. – Timmy needs slippers.
– Deep breath in. Last breath. – My hands are clawing. – That’s normal, just let it be. – Let it be, let it be.
– Exactly. – Did you call him Zachary,
or did you say exactly? – Call me Zachary. – Timmy and Zachary. – Awesome, good job
guys, exhale completely, and moving into the space
between your eyebrows. This one will be good for,
– Oh yep. – I anticipated this.
– Will create a good healing for you. Alright, so we’re gonna
start the breath again. – Zachary, put your hands
in between your eyebrows. – You’re moving up the body, yeah, good. – Okay, we’re gonna
start the breath again. (breathing sounds) – Shaking a little bit. – Any tingling sensations are normal– – I’m keeping my eyebrows on my face. – Good, good. Just keep breathing. Turn your attention inside. Stay with the breath. – The crickets are inhabiting my spine. – Keep breathing. – My thighs have crickets. – Invite those crickets into your thighs. Just keep breathing. – I feel a compulsion to spread. – Yeah, just listen to your body, whatever your body wants to
do, just stay with the breath. – It says that Timmy should spread. Timmy should get as wide as possible. – Yeah, that’s great, that’s
great, listen to your body. – My bucket, I mean my belly, my bucker center, my bucket is full of bees. I can’t open my mouth. – Alright guys, taking one deep breath in. – Timmy is asking if
this is inappropriate. – Anything is appropriate, anything. Okay, last cycle guys, we can do this, we’re almost there. Alright, touching the top of your head, – That’s gonna be trouble. – You don’t have to, just
visualize that energy center. – My shoulders are buzzing. My belly, my chest, the bees. – You’re doing a great job
guys, I’m so proud of you. Okay, last round, here we go. (breathing sounds) Just stay with that breath. Just keep breathing. – I just realized there’s fire over here. – You’re doing a great
job, keep breathing. Almost done guys, keep breathing. – My thighs are tight. – Yeah, good, just keep
noticing what’s going on, everything is allowed. We’re almost there guys. – Everything is allowed?
– A couple more seconds, keep breathing.
– Everything is allowed? – Everything is allowed. – I should be careful
what I say around you two, keep breathing. – My fingers are so tight. – And taking a deep breath in. – My face, my face, my face, – And exhaling completely. – I’m not telling my
face and eyes to do this. – Coming back to your normal breath now. – Oh, Timmy feels so good. – My hands, my hands are dancing. – I feel like I found
a little special place. It was like a quarry. It was like a quarry that
you’re not supposed to go into. And I found a little patch,
a little patch of sand, and I laid on the patch of sand, and then the sheriff
showed up, and he was like, I told you boys not to come in here. But then we were like, sheriff,
it’s just Timmy and Zachary. You know us, you know our parents. Come lay down with us.
– What are you doing? – And then we laid down with the sheriff. We laid down with the sheriff
in a patch of warm grass. And then another sheriff
showed up and said, this is not, this shouldn’t be happening. But we were happy while we were there. – Well this is golden. Whenever you’re ready,
I know that that was an intense experience
for you guys, obviously, so take your time, you
know, coming up to a seat. – It seems a lot harder than it should be. – Yeah, I recommend rolling to one side. – Oh, that’s smart. – I feel like I’m stuck to the mat. – The sheriff could help us
up, but he’s already gone. – I just want to be here for
just a little bit longer. – Thanks for liking, commenting, and joining us at the quarry. – You know what time it is. – I’m Charlotte.
– And I’m Alexea, and we’re from North Carolina, but right now we’re at the Taj Mahal. – And it’s time to spin
