Breath Work, Flower Essences, and Homeopathy with Maya Keane

Updated: Oct 29, 2020




I thoroughly enjoyed this interview with breathwork coach Maya Keane. We discuss so many things including breathwork, flower essences, and homeopathy. She is currently studying homeopathy and flower essences to weave a holistic practice into her work.


She is so grounded and honest about how breathwork helped her process her blocks and gave her the courage to step into this new career of holding space for others. Maya also explains how she discovered Flower Essences. She points out that we all react to flower essences differently and the benefits on the bottle might not be what we experience.


We also discuss her current homeopathy program. Maya talks about how homeopathy cures like with like and just might be the science of the future.


Maya also shares with us how she finally left New York City and moved to the slower pace of Santa Fe, New Mexico. She wanted access to nature but she needed to wait for the right timing with her partner. Finally, after they moved she said it still took several months for the stress of big city living to leave her system.


Maya finishes the episode with a breathwork meditation. This meditation really gets stuff moving in the body, I highly recommend it.


Maya will be hosting a virtual breathwork circle for the first Lit AF monthly workshop on November 12th from 6-7:30pm PST. The workshop will focus on breathwork to ground into yourself and prepare for the holidays. Learn more about the workshop here.

Quotes from Maya Keane:

“I went on a trip to Greece with my mom to a special Island that we'd been to many times. I came back from that trip and I'm like, I can't do this life anymore. It was just like that. I looked around and it wasn't entertaining anymore. I had zero desire to pursue what I was pursuing for many years and that kind of just shook everything up and started the deep, deep work.”


“The work consisted of going to as many healing workshops and healers as I could muster my worth around spending money on at that time. I started diving into the more deep, transformative, emotional healing stuff.”


“It began the process of unearthing all the hurts, all the stories that I was telling myself or that others had told me that I wasn't good enough, or I was too much, all the blocks, all the hard stuff.”


“It opened up me seeing that a life that seemed so out of reach was actually something I could do that I was going to do that I will want to take the steps to get out of the job that was draining me and becoming toxic that I was going to take the steps to take a jump and try to build something out of nothing.”


“I grew up really thinking that I was too sensitive. Sensitive to criticism. Sensitive to people just being unintentional about not inviting me somewhere or just crying a lot. It really helped me develop an acceptance that this isn't wrong with me. This is a sign that my body has always been trying to tell me. And it's a way that my system regulates.”


“What's really cool about it is, most times in at least the style that I facilitate, there is no other energy work going on other than the energy work that is happening because of your breath.”


“Healers deserve a lot of abundance so they can take care of themselves, but at the same time, a lot of healing work isn't accessible. We need to make healing work accessible to the communities that really need it. And we need to be training people in those communities to facilitate for their communities.”


“In the wellness world there needs to be a breakdown of this hierarchy and a breakdown of you can only attend if you can afford it.”
