There is one way of breathing that is shameful and constricted. Then there's another way; a breath of love that takes you all the way to infinity. – Rumi

Breathing is far more than the unconscious functioning of our autonomic nervous system which we usually take for granted. In many languages the word for spirit and breath are the same, suggesting that breathing is the movement of spirit in matter. Breath has been referred to as the cord that ties the soul to the body. It is the integrating force for the multiple dimensions of our whole-person existence. When we work properly with our emotional body using breath, previously restricting issues fuel and fertilize new growth. By learning to consciously breathe deeply, you can experience a wide range of benefits, including:
- Deep relaxation and improved sleep
- Reduction in stress, tension and pain
- Enlivened energy and sensory enrichment
- Enhanced presence and spontaneous creativity
- Activation of intention and purpose
- Heightened capacity for interpersonal relatedness
