What brought you here?
I want to improve my self-worth or feel insecure 
Having low self-worth sucks. It's also one of the key factors both in anxiety and depression as well as lower overall life satisfaction.
Wanting to improve your self-worth is thus a great step towards being happier and more joyful - congrats on taking this first step.
Deep Breath was built around boosting self-worth. Journeying with means you will join a community of like-minded and like-hearted people. You will also be able to join our workshops, where you'll learn both theory and practice to increase your self-worth in a space where you can safely express yourself and be vulnerable.
I'm looking for relaxation and new ways to engage with the world
Welcome to our virtual place in the virtual woods! Great to have you! Relaxation and stillness are hard to come by in modern days. Often it's not only the outside world that's hectic, but also our inner one. Stillness, relaxation and new ways to relate to the world can all be fostered from within. Join us to hear what worked for us and share with us what worked for you!
I feel stressed out and struggle winding down 
Sorry to hear that, friend. It's hectic times we live in and it can be overwhelming juggling all of one's commitments. Besides reducing what's happening in one's life or "doing things faster", another big lever to reduce stress is to relate to our experience of it differently. It can also help to learn how to practice to relax and to wind down. 
I feel out of touch with myself
Oh, that's an ugly one - sorry to hear you're feeling out of touch with yourself. It's a shitty place to be in, as connecting often happens via connecting - not having that ability can feel alienating. We've been there and know a thing or two about how to reconnect with yourself, others, and the world.
Sending you hugs!
I don't know what to do and feel lost
It's okay to feel lost. Let's be honest, we've all been there at some point. Deep Breath can't give you answers or promise you an outcome, but we can help you find your own answers - your own truth.
Sometimes being surrounded by likeminded people...

Set up a monthly payment to Deep Breath to support our cause.
If you feel like what we're doing is worthy of support, it'd be wonderful if you supported us with a fixed monthly payment. Any sum helps and makes our lives easier, as it makes planning easier for us.

Never ask that question ‘how’, for then there is always somebody giving you a rope. [We’re] not helping you in any way, but together we are walking along the same road, perhaps not at the same speed. Set your own speed and we will walk together.
