The breath can be a powerful tool to shed layers of illusion and open the heart to reveal the true nature of who we are.
By way of feeling the inward landscape becomes illuminated, revealing that which resists the natural flow of life. Breathwork can help us to break through emotional defense mechanisms that prevent us from experiencing the fullness of life. Intentional breath can crack the heart wide open to feel, allow, and experience the full depths of richness, pleasure and wonderment that we once new as a child.
Deep richness is available in every moment, we must only tune our consciousness to the frequency of now!
While often overlooked due its simplicity, the breath is one of the most important components to human health. The breath is referred to as “prana” in many yogic teachings meaning “life force energy.” Indeed, it is just that.
As a fundamental pillar to human health, the cycle of the breath connects us to our environment and is the primary mode in which we draw in energy from the universe to sustain life force within the body. Breathing tends to occur largely as a subconscious activity. Thus, the breath is a gateway to the subconscious mind. Breath is the keystone to changing our state of being, and its influence is immediate and direct. The average person takes roughly 26,000 breaths per day. The quality of our breath has direct influences on all aspects of our health including our consciousness, nervous system, circulation, energy, immune system, cellular respiration, genetic expression and so much more.
