Interview with Pei Chan – Founder of Inmispace

This week we caught up with Pei Chan – Founder of Inmispace to talk about what inspired her to start up Inmispace,the power of breath and why being vulnerable can be life changing.

Can you tell us when you started Transformational Breath® and how it transformed your life?

It started in summer of 2017 when I stumbled upon it and thought it was a meditation workshop. It was transformational for me. It was the first time that I let emotions out this way. I grew up in an environment with domestic violence which I have suppressed mostly. My dad passed away when I was 13, and I was told to be strong, not to be weak and not to cry. I did not cry during the funeral. I did not grieve.

Life continued and I would have the strongest facade, so no one would know that we are in pain on the inside. I numbed the pain and ran away by overachieving and pushing myself to my limit constantly. There I was in my early 30s, successful in my own right and yet I felt a complete void. I was completely burnout, paralysed with fear and anxiety but no one would know. I didn’t think I could justify still being impacted by my dad’s passing over 20 years ago, I thought it was absolutely crazy. I tried so many modalities and was constantly searching for an answer to my emptiness. In the end, it’s my simple breath that allowed me to integrate with these childhood traumas and experiences.

I realised how restricted my breath was in order to protect my heart and not to show my vulnerabilities. It was terrifying in the beginning to be so present within myself, I realised I was running away from my own emotions and myself. I thought I broke the code and ‘healed’. A job loss in 2019 unsettled the dust again and triggered all my insecurities with abandonment, financial security and personal identity. I was completely broken and lost. I went back to my breath. I picked myself up piece by piece and reconciled within using my breath, I started to show my vulnerabilities and shared my experience. The heaviness within shifted when I did, and that was the start of my journey to become a facilitator to help. The simplicity and the power of the breath has been life-changing for me.

What inspired you to start Inmispace?

I knew I didn’t want a brand name that is associated with my name or myself. I also knew that it would be a brand/business that would work with different modalities. Breath is my biggest love 100%. However, it may not resonate with everyone. I do Rapid Transformational Therapy® and Reiki on top of breathwork. I have a childhood dream which always comes up in my visualisation meditations, that I want to create a space where all my friends and family can come together. It’s virtual at the moment, and one day it will be a physical space. I am manifesting it!

I thought about my journey from when my dad passed, I was chasing after something to fill the void constantly. I was constantly looking for external validations to be acknowledged and to fit in. When I realised something was wrong, I started a quest to find the best solution through meditation, therapy, light grids, sound therapy, body works etc.. Even when I started doing breathwork, I was in disbelief as I thought I had to spend a fortune to make myself feel better. I didn’t believe it could be this simple. Using my breath to go within, to stay present with myself has been challenging. It is also the most empowering and powerful way of reacquainting with yourself and reclaiming your innate power and confidence. We are born with it and along the way we suppress them deep within us.

I truly believe that all the answers are within ourselves, we have the power to heal ourselves. Breathwork and Hypnosis both tap into our subconscious mind which is so powerful. The breath helped me rediscover this magic in me. I want everyone to know that their magic is in them, waiting to be excavated. If it’s inmi, it’s in you. I want to make Inmispace accessible and relevant for modern society.

What has been your biggest achievement since starting Inmispace?

Being vulnerable.

Sharing my experiences on social media and in workshops in front of total strangers has been tough. I grew up not showing any emotions and showing a perfect facade. I never used to share any emotions or photos in public. It took me a long time to get over it and start being comfortable being on social media. I didn’t like the idea of looking like a fool, exposing myself, and showing the other side of my life.

The strangers on my personal journey who shared their pain and experiences gave me the courage to share my own and it opened the space I had sealed off for most of my life. I hope this will give someone else the courage and strength to know that it is okay not to be okay.

This also gives me compassion for people in my life whom I would normally dismiss as being rude or not a nice person. Everyone has a story, what is their outer persona telling me?

It’s not easy to set up a business whilst having a full-time job. It is difficult to let go of perfectionism and wait for the right moment when I have the right ideas. I have to remind myself that I built my professional career over 15 years and this will take time and will not happen overnight.

How can someone book a session with you?

They can book a breath and/or a hypnosis session via my website.

There is another event in November combining Japanese Calligraphy and Breathwork. It is going to be beautiful as we are setting intentions with principles of Japanese Calligraphy and bringing that into the breath session. It is in the making at the moment and will be published very soon!

What would your ideal day in London be like?

  1. A spin class @ Soul Cycle

  2. Catching with friends over good food. My current favourites are Sumi and Zephyr at Westbourne Grove/Nottinghill.
