The benefits include healing at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
And this is in addition to the benefit I already mentioned on the Home page; a deeper connection to PRESENCE!
I’m noticing more and more information coming out about how transformative the breath can be.
You can read Judith Kravitz’s story on her website. She developed a breathwork method called Transformational Breath and it is quite popular. Kravitz claims that her throat cancer was cured by breathing and science does support that since cancer is known to be an anaerobic disease that thrives in a oxygen poor environment. Peruse her site for more information on the science of breathing according to Transformational Breathwork.
I highly recommend reading her book Breath Deep, Laugh Loudly which is available on her website as a paperback or downloadable version. And I also recommend getting her Transformational Breath Guided Session downloadable program. I started doing my breath sessions with this guided session after having received a number of facilitated sessions by a Transformational Breath trained facilitator.
I’m looking for more audio material that you can use in case you don’t have a trained facilitator in your area to practice with.
I highly recommend an audiobook called Breathing: The Master Key to Self-Healing by Dr. Andrew Weil. I have learned much about breath work from this audiobook. For example: our breathing system is the only body system that can be operated consciously or unconsciously. And when we operate our breath consciously, it has an effect on our unconscious. It would seems that our breathing is the only method for making changes to our unconscious side. Astounding, yes? And our exhale is more important than the inhale since we get rid of toxins during our exhale. You can read a more complete review of this audiobook here at the top of the page.
