…Although I have been a workshop junkie for some thirty-five years, something about Terri Peterson’s “I Love to Breathe,” weekend called to me and wouldn’t stop calling until I signed up for the two-day Soul Breathing training.  Am I ever glad I did!  Terri teaches an elegantly simple breathing technique, which proved to be a powerful and empowering way to release old blocks on all levels–physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and energetic–and to open to greater health, happiness, and healing.  Thank you, Terri, for your willingness to serve as a guardian angel in teaching and facilitating this valuable process!

Thank you Terri!!! You are a powerful facilitator and holder of space. You create a safe container for deep transformative work to be done in accordance with meeting everyone where they are at, making it accessible to all different levels and what’s needed for each individual. Working with you is helping me to heal deeper layers and have breakthroughs. It is a reflection of the integrity of your intentionality. It reaffirms my belief in the power of group work. I’m happy to have found you.

My emotions have been frozen for months. And this breath session was such a delicious dissolving surprise. I could feel all of them just melt off my body — it looked like a snow cone just melting away — and then that huge light appeared. WOW!! And when you suggested proof that my teachers and guides were there…no words can describe that. I just felt their presence collapse onto me and throughout my entire being. Thank you for letting me participate in this very powerful healing of the planet, and ourselves!

I have results to report! I want you to know that your promise of life transformation realizations has been my experience. I discovered in my higher education pursuit that I was a sculptor. There were moments of actualization after teaching for 5 years during my 50 years of running my high end constructing business, but I could not sustain that creative option. That, finding a way into sculpting, was what I wanted from your seminar. Well I’ll be damned if that is not what has been realized. I managed to resolve all the internal arguments and committed to making one sculpture a day for the past 35 days and continuing. A flood of inner peace has followed. I look forward to your return. Thank you, Terri.

…Your workshop was terrific. I use the new breath method in all situations, after waking in the morning, while practicing Tai Chi, when walking around the trail near my home and when I want to clear out my internal dialogue. All the best to you in your work. Thank you.

F.Z. – Swarthmore, PA

…I had a wonderful transformative time at my first Soul Breathing workshop. The information you presented in the intro was clear and profound, and I found the breathing technique easy to get used to. I did the back-to-back sessions. It was very interesting how different the two “rounds” were, and how much deeper the second one was. Your guidance during the sessions was supportive and insightful, coming straight from Source. And the music was a delight! I am looking forward to my next workshop with you.

…It was important to take this much time [Breath Mastery weekend] for my own soul work and to give myself a break. It opened up my heart and I felt blessings pouring into me.

E.S. – Minneapolis, MN

…Soul Breathing is one of the most powerful tools I’ve come across in my long journey for shifting my states of consciousness and awareness – instantly!

G.M. – Sebastian, FL

…Thanks again Terri for leading the beautiful and inspiring class last weekend!  Your guidance helped make it an amazing experience, and I felt an extraordinary amount of white light and love during the session.  Often when I open my Akashic Records they remind me to breathe, which I never fully understood until I took your class.  I know they led me to it to learn how the breath can help me live a fuller life.

…Conscious Breathing is the most healing thing I do for myself. It helps me relax and even when tension sets in, I am able to consciously diffuse it. I love your wisdom, energy and unconditional patience.

D.L. – Plymouth, MN

…Thank you for leading the workshop on Soul Breathing for my Burmese public health graduate interns! It was an amazing experience that I am sure they will remember for a long time. I really enjoyed meeting you, learning your technique, and basking in your positive energy. What I liked best about the workshop was when you explained that we attract the energy that we exude. I have been working on releasing the negative energy, glowing with the positive, and working to attract other positive energy people. Thank you for the inspiration!

A.M. – Mae Sot, Thailand

…The energy at Peace Valley [during the retreat] was amazing!  And, I have a new respect for breathing – to open, release, clear, center, and ground me.  I have been breathing for approximately 1/2 hour on Wednesdays and it really seems to center and ground me. Your energy and enthusiasm for breathing added to your insightfulness as a facilitator…created a powerful and light-filled experience for the breathers. To which I say “thank you”. I was truly inspired by the breathing and feel it is a powerful connection to Spirit.  Again, an amazing experience! 

S.L. – Caroll, IA

…This seminar is one of the few that lives up to the claim of being transformational. I experienced tremendous shifts and an increase in confidence as well as an eagerness to move forward.

L.K. – Grand Forks, ND

The Breath Mastery seminar really integrated many modalities on a deeper level…Imagery, breath, dancing, movement, cognitive behaviors. It allowed much release of stuckness I was carrying. Thank you.

J.K. – Stillwater, MN

…I don’t often stumble on things that take me completely by surprise. And your Breath Mastery seminar did. I came in with curiosity, maybe a little apprehension, and a strong commitment. I left in a state of high energy and stunned amazement at what showed up. You have put together a really well constructed and effective seminar. Thank you.

D.P. – Minneapolis, MN

Thank you for your generous, kind love and words of encouragement. You are a master of many energies. I consider you one of my mentors and I so appreciate who you have become in my life.

V.W. – Washington DC

Terri is an excellent intuitive and a great teacher who is true to herself and on the forefront of the latest New Age teachings. Her work with teaching Soul Breathing is remarkable and she is excellent as a Pranic Healer as well. Her friendly, matter of fact manner is comforting and makes learning fast and easy. I would recommend her as a teacher and a healer. She certainly knows what she is doing!

P.O. – Las Cruces, NM

…My low back pain is almost all gone! Yay! The releasing I was doing tonight with all the coughing and some tears, was not only from a past life – it also felt like it was from this lifetime. All is well and I’m grateful!!

J.S. – Minneapolis, MN

…Thank you so much for an amazing seminar! It was like nothing else I have experienced. The vibrations throughout my body were really amazing ……THANK YOU!  I truly would love to and will attend another workshop with you. I am going to put this out to some friends and yoga students about this amazing work and to see where the interest would be to host you in Roseau. Thank YOU for an incredible experience and a fabulous day that was so much fun!

D.K.  – Roseau, MN

…Soul Breathing is the most meaningful enrichment I’ve participated in a long time. You do a great job teaching, facilitating, and supporting.  Thank you.  I’ve known for some time that breathing was something I was going to have to tackle – eventually.  I feel really blessed to have crossed your path.  

K.L. – Eden Prairie, MN 

…I so appreciate the day yesterday and am still processing.  Soul Breathing is important work for me and I am grateful to be doing it in an atmosphere of safety and skillful facilitation. Terri, you are gifted and as you know, I have told many of my friends about this healing breathwork you offer and the transformation that comes from it. I’m also very grateful to have been a part of the excellent gathering of women that met for the intensive. Thank you.

M.K. – New Brighton, MN

…This seminar exceeded my expectations. I was amazed at how many tears and how much pain I released. I was amazed how my body responded to the breath. I experienced healing.

K.V. – Sioux Falls, SD

…Your seminar helped me find more out about myself and what I truly want out of life. It helped me start to release emotions I was holding onto from my past. I liked everything about the Breath Mastery Seminar but particularly finding out what emotions and feelings really are and beginning to release them from the body.

J.S. – Sioux Falls, SD

I want to relay my experience with Terri’s intro breathing workshop. For me it was a pretty deep and intense experience. I was expecting just a simple breathing mechanics class. Instead Terri got us into a really deep, meditative state and I experienced and felt things in my body and consciousness that I have never felt before. I would recommend this class to everyone.

P.F. – Saint Paul, MN

…This was an amazing session for me! I want to thank you for facilitating this powerful modality!  By the time I arrived home after the workshop I could smell cigarette smoke while I was still in my car.  At first I was wondering where it was coming from.  I realized it was coming out of my body through my nose!  I don’t smoke and never have, but I could smell it in my nose for the rest of the evening, very potently!  I grew up in a smoking household, with 1 or 2 parents smoking for the first 21 years of my life — and I was detoxing the smoke!!!  Then the next day I could feel my body much more relaxed and my belly had softened. 

M.C. – Minneapolis, MN

…Last night I had a severe anxiety attack, I had not had one of those in several years. But in the midst of it, I remembered about doing the Soul Breathing, just thought it might help, and it did!! I wanted to share that with you: My heart was racing and pounding so hard and irregular, but I knew it was anxiety.  I went all bundled up (night) outside on the Creek for a while and did a real serious, long Soul Breathing session, I don’t know how long, but the heart calmed down and the anxiety lessened, so I could be more at ease.  That was really interesting, I just had a feeling this would help. I am so grateful that I had that tool on hand. The SoulBreathing is always with me, and as I said, it brought down this hard, fast, and irregular beat which can be scary at times, and after about, I’d say, 50 breaths or so, it got easier. I was also surprised, how easy the diaphragm dropped and how flexible it has become since the sessions we did in Pasadena, where it was a lot more rigid. You are a very driven and driving teacher with a lot of compassion for your work/play and your students, and I appreciate what you did for us in such a short time.  This experience really brought my awareness to a whole new level.

…This (Soul Breathing Seminar, Lv. 1: I Love to Breathe) was very powerful to me.  I had major surgery 4 years ago with 2 years of severe pain before that.  I guess I had planned on dying in surgery and have not really adjusted back to being on earth.  This took me through the pain and released it.  It also brought me back to realizing I had a life to live.  It also let me know that my kids as well as my mom and grandma are alright and will be okay…

J.U.  – Sioux Falls, SD 

…Thank you so much for the wonderful workshop. I must tell you that I was hesitant to spend an entire weekend on a “breathing” workshop, but it far exceeded my expectations!

T.S. – Sioux Falls, SD

…I felt an intense electric tingling coursing all through my body. It felt like I was connected to all the energy in the room. I actually raised my arms and embraced the air because it felt so alive. It was really a spiritual experience. I intend to continue breathing on my own with the help of a CD that Terri provided, which will guide me through a 10-15 minute session. I figure it’s quick, easy and can act as a sort of meditation for me as well as assist me in keeping my physical body in good shape. I encourage you, if you get the chance, to try this breathing technique. I don’t fully understand how it works, but I believe it does work. Have an open mind and be open to whatever happens.

S.W. – Hickory, NC 

…I really enjoyed the retreat. It was very fulfilling and I felt like I had been on a long vacation.  I cleared a lot of unwanted emotions during the weekend retreat. An amazing thing happened to me I felt my heart chakra open when Terri used her technique of tapping on the heart chakra during the breathing session.  I felt a strong sensation ripple through a band of muscles across the chest area on each side of the heart, as if everything was opening. What a release that was.  I am very grateful for that experience. I like Terri’s teaching method. I like the way she teaches us to breathe in an easy, flowing way. This method, through encouragement, allowed my “left brain” to get out of the way.  I continue to work on opening my breath and the weekend retreat helped me improve tremendously. 

P.K. – Belle Plaine, MN

…The Soul Breathing workshop was absolutely wonderful.  I felt so refreshed when I left and I slept beautifully that night – so relaxed.  I was surprised that the breathing came so much easier for me than in the classes I took previously.  It was like “okay – I knew how to do this all along”.  I think it was because I got my mind out of the way. I have been much more aware of my breath since the workshop and find myself getting back into the rhythm in the times when I have been distracted and tensed up.  I have been working on and struggling at times to reclaim my own power and trust my inner wisdom (rather than relying on advice or wisdom from others).  As I said after class, the one particular point you pressed on my body and told me to trust my own wisdom just opened up an energy of gratitude and my body and heart said “Thank you.”  My willingness to trust my own wisdom was strengthened. I am so thankful that you encouraged me to take the workshop.  It has really made a difference in my life.   

L.G. – Minneapolis, MN

…I have found the breathing technique you taught (in the workshop) especially useful when I am riding my bike and need to reach for more energy.  It has been interesting to experiment with it.  Thank you for sharing what you’ve learned.

M.B. – Hickory, NC 

…I found the experience to be very powerful. I felt my body vibrating and also experienced unexpected emotional feelings, totally spontaneously. I had been having a problem with my foot and had been given a steroid injection for an inflamed nerve a few weeks before. During the breathing session I experience a short burst of intense pain at the site, but afterwards I didn’t have any pain there and haven’t had a problem with that foot since the session.
