Description

Drawing on a multitude of breathing practices from different healing and spiritual traditions, The Power of Breathwork includes 40 simple exercises that can be practiced alone or with a partner to enhance connection, creativity, joy, inner wisdom, or to reduce depression, anxiety, trauma, tension, physical pain, and more.

Knowing how to breathe and how to use your breath purposefully has been proven to reduce negative mental and physical issues and actually heal the body and mind. A regular home breathwork practice is an affordable and easy way for you to engage in self-healing practices that can have a profound impact on your overall health.

Author and grief worker Jennifer Patterson begins by explaining what breathwork is, why you should try it, and how it can be used to heal the body and mind. Then, you'll learn what happens in your physical body, energetic body, and emotional body as you practice it. Before you start the exercises, find useful tips on building an altar, using incense and essential oils, visualizations and grounding, and somatic writing prompts.

The illustrated exercises takes you step by step through the preparation, practice, and aftercare of 40 different breathing techniques—20 designed for solitary practice and 20 that can be done with a partner.

The Power of Breathwork is a comprehensive guide for anyone looking to introduce meditative practices for healing into their daily routines.
