The Language of Holding Space

A 5-week accelerated live Zoom course designed to empower and educate spaceholders to create deeper, lasting transformation & healing through mastering the art of holding space in a heart-centered way.

A spaceholder is anyone who regularly provides emotional support for an individual or group, including coaches, healers, teachers, bodyworkers, therapists, parents, nurses, managers, etc.

In this 5-week experience, you will:

Discover the do’s and don’ts of holding space so you can create the most heart-centered, safe, non-judgmental container for yourself & your loved ones

Master the language of holding space – understand and embody the verbal, body, and energetic language that is shared in personal and interpersonal relationships.

Learn how to hold space without actually holding anything, to avoid taking over-responsibility for others’ experiences or going into ‘fix it’ mode

Set & maintain physical, energetic, and emotional boundaries for yourself to protect your precious energy and claim your sovereignty.

Practice holding space with a community of gifted healers, practitioners, and heart-centered beings (even if you’re not a practicing healer, you are so welcome here and can learn from & benefit from the gifted healers in the space!)

Gain confidence to birth your creations into the world & step into your seat as an embodied, heart-centered leader!

Who is this course for?

Aspiring and established spaceholders, including healers, therapists, lightworkers, intuitives, bodyworkers, and coaches who desire to create deeper, lasting transformation for their clients through mastering the art of holding space in a heart-centered, compassionate way.

Empaths who are tired and worn down from taking on the energy of others and want to learn how to set strong boundaries for themselves.

Entrepreneurs, teachers, nurses, managers, and leaders who want to deepen empathy and listening skills when delivering their sacred service without burning out.

As a member of the LGTBQIA+ community, I am happy to invite all genders and gender expressions to this experience. This course is open to all and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sexual identity or sexual orientation.

Past Program Participants

“It helped me to regain my confidence as a coach. I now feel more confident in holding space for my clients, whether its one-on-one or in a group setting. I loved learning how to create safety in a container, and knowing the right questions to ask in order to open the floor for more healing. I now have a much better understanding of what holding space means, and I am practising every day how to hold better space for not only my clients, but my friends and family, too.”

– Roxy

“I feel so much more excitement and less fear/intimidation regarding myself as a leader and taking steps towards more leadership roles in my creative business. Prior to this course it was difficult for me to separate my own experience from holding space for others. I had a tendency to project my own experience, use toxic positivity, and suggest ways of “fixing” without seeking consent. This course allowed me to see how those habits are more harmful than helpful, and showed me how to hold space alternatively in a healthy way for both sides of the conversation.

– Alex

“I’m so much clearer on how I want to show up in all areas of life and how I can spread my light to anyone I meet, not just people I work with. When working with Sarah, I feel loved, nurtured, safe, cared for, and held.”

– Rebecca

What is Breathwork?

Release difficult emotions and access higher states of consciousness through your most powerful tool – the breath!

  • Positive benefits to all systems of the body, especially the immune system and respiratory system — we can all benefit from healthy lungs & strong immunity right now!
  • Release and process difficult emotions such as anxiety, grief, sadness, and loneliness
  • Connect with intuition by turning down the critical, judgmental part of our brain to allow for our intuition come forward
  • Access intelligence that lives in our bodies and activate non-ordinary states of consciousness, which can cause a shift in perspective on a particular issue, invite something new to come through, or process memories

This is NOT a quiet, sleepy meditation. This is an active, embodied practice. If you have a history of heart conditions, psychiatric disorder, PTSD, sleep disorders, seizures, or if you are pregnant, you may want to skip this or take it very slowly. It is a powerful breath.

What You’ll Receive:

  • Breathwork experience hosted by Sarah Lane, Breathwork Guide, Reiki Healer, & Embodiment Coach
  • Community support & connection following the breathwork session
  • Guided visualization and meditation to take you deeper into the experience and access inner wisdom
  • Distance reiki healing energy (yes, it still works through the ethers!) to assist with emotional, spiritual, and physical healing

How to prepare:

  • It is recommended to refrain from eating 1-2 hours prior to practicing breathwork. Water is fine.
  • You want to be laying down on your back for this practice. I recommend a yoga mat and a blanket. If you tend to run cold, grab two blankets! Your body temperature may change during this practice. Do not put any pillows under your head, but you can use them for under your knees as a bolster or even for yelling into later on in the practice if you need to.
  • Music is a huge part of this experience so you’ll want to ensure you have good sound quality – headphones work best.
  • I also ask that you place your camera where I can see the upper half of your body to monitor your breathing. This is for your safety and so I can energetically hold the space for you. 
  • Grab a journal, pen, and water for after your practice.
