The majority of us navigate through life in a constant state of low-grade stress. It lies just below the surface of our consciousness, a slight unrest. In medical terms, it’s called sympathetic dominance. It’s a nervous system imbalance, a deficit in the “spirit”ual transaction of life. This stress is often undetected and when left to proliferate, its cumulative effects are devastating. It leads to disease of the physical, distress of the emotional, and disconnection from the spiritual aspects of our human experience. The very essence of our being wants to relieve this imbalance and so it reaches for outside substances to provide temporary relief.
The ultimate solution to relieve this multi-dimensional imbalance is the ultimate companion, the ultimate substance, the breath.
Breathwork is a field of study and practice that is deep and wide and complex. For millennia, breathwork has been practiced and taught for the benefit of mind, body, and spiritual enhancement by yogis, shaman, zen masters, re-birthers, and energy healers. It is deeply rooted in much of eastern medicine and spirituality. Practical Breathwork introduces concepts that will immediately have an impact on, in, and around your life. Expect revolutionary information that will: restore nervous system balance, deepen meditation, revitalize health and well-being, raise energy and clarity, improve sleep and digestion, reduce cravings, magnify multi-level presence, and amplify connection to all. The content is presented in a format that is practical. Practical leads to a practice which leads to sustainability.
Practical Breathwork can be presented as a live workshop and is also packaged as an online seminar.
Practical Breathwork is an experiential program that combines elemental aspects, tools, and techniques from the best of this complex field. The programs blends discussion, ancient forms of meditation, dozens of focused breathing exercises, deep spiritual connection to yourself and others, and devotional and ecstatic music.

The online seminar is 4 hours; you will have unlimited access to the online content and receive a download package of audio companions that will allow you to integrate the tools into your daily practice.
When you own your breath, nothing can take your peace.
I hired Bob and Shannon to come to our school and present a Practical Breathwork workshop to the staff. The goal of the workshop was twofold- team building while learning self-soothing techniques to pass along to the children. It was a wonderful day-long retreat where we shared, sang, laughed, and learned many valuable tools that helped us reach the still quiet place within. The workshop was very well received by the staff. Are you looking for a creative way to bring your team to together in a retreat atmosphere while learning life skills? Consider inviting Bob and Shannon to begin the transformation.Lisa Oesterling
I found that Practical Breathwork strengthens the diaphragm – the main muscle of respiration – and helps to achieve greater oxygenation for a heightened feeling of awareness in the present moment. Less fear of separation and more inner peace works for me!Darlene Dawn
Every once in a while you have to be reminded who you are. You have to connect to Source and feel that divine love. This is an easy way to do that, like any event that Bob and Shannon offer together. My body is in a big smile. I felt “it”, that which I call divine love.anonymous
I took the training and loved every minute of it. Now I practice every day throughout the day. It does make a difference for me. I highly recommend this training not only for people with breathing problems (like myself) but for every one interested in spiritual growth and meditation.anonymous
The workshop was everything I could have expected and then some. The four hours flew by and I went home with so many tools. It was a birthday present to myself that will keep giving.anonymous
I’m a teacher of laughter yoga and there is a lot about breathing involved in the practice that I share and I teach. But I got to experience some magnificent things that brought me to my major takeaway from the afternoon. That is: to revere my breath; to revere this holy act; to make it more conscious; to breathe and reconnect with the truth of who and what you are.Elaine Nieberding

Bob Sima is to music what Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Eckhart Tolle are to books and Rumi, Hafiz, and David Whyte are to poetry. He is troubadour, a way-shower, a guide, an awakener, and a musical mystic. Through the medium of melody and message, he leads listeners to an expanded consciousness, deeper sense of connection, and inner peace and purpose. His music bridges daily life and soul consciousness, the eternal with the now. He delivers instantly accessible songs that take up residence and resonance in your soul. Sima is a dynamic singer-songwriter, performer, storyteller, speaker, servant of humanity, workshop and retreat leader, meditation and breathwork facilitator, and creative collaborator — often weaving all of these elements into a single performance. When Sima opens his mouth to sing, what emerges is far beyond the human sounds of his warm and soulful voice. It’s a call, a remembrance, a soft and steady place to land. He speaks the language of the Universe, the language of the soul, the language of the heart. But he’s not just singing to his audience and it’s not just a performance. It’s a gathering, a connection – somewhat of a musical satsang or gathering of truth – that navigates the audience on a profound musical journey. Bob has an unparalleled ability to connect audiences in a visceral, powerful way, changing the vibration and consciousness in the room.
Shannon Plummer is a powerhouse strategic visioning and intentional creation coach and shamanic practitioner wrapped in a divine package. Her approach combines spiritual, shamanic, and metaphysical wisdom with business and management expertise. As a subset of coaching the psyche, she also translates her organizational skills into the space surrounding the individual. She’s learned that – just as blocks in our belief systems prevent us from living our passion – the state of our physical surroundings can significantly stunt our expansion because the energy of what is stuck in our work space, in our home, in our bedroom, in our attic, in our garage is holding onto the past. Her approach is not only unique, but is extraordinarily powerful and will uniquely serve your walk through this world as you create a passionate and purposeful life. Shannon is an instrument – an engaged observer to the story of your life. She will guide you to and through the blind spots, allowing your higher self and vision to illuminate the true passion that lies within. Shannon’s intuitive and heart-centered coaching and visioning process will gently lead you to a more authentic, conscious, and intentional life. Her unique energy and presence creates a sacred space for expansion and deepening of what is waiting to be expressed. She now guides seekers to find, express, and live their truth in their calling.
