What is Rebirthing / Breathwork?
Rebirthing is a simple breathing process. The result is a greater level of personal awareness. Awareness is the process of becoming conscious, conscious of our choices, decisions and judgments. By Rebirthing we get to view our life and decide to make new, more informed choices and judgements. We get to see, feel, and hear our experiences in a new light, with the assistance of guide, coach, mentor and Rebirther.
By doing this simple breathing process we get to breathe more. The way we breathe is reflection of our day to day experience. By learning to breathe consciously and more fully, it enables us to discover and release any tension we may have. It helps integrate changes into our lives. Change is not always easy, Rebirthing assists in releasing the tension of change.
Rebirthing began in the early 70’s by Leonard Orr and a small group of friends. This group discovered the immense impact that their birth had on their everyday experiences. Because of this the process became known as Rebirthing. Rebirthing has since undergone many changes and it is now often referred to as ‘Breathwork’ because the focus is on the breath..
Breathwork addresses our whole experience of life, from releasing traumas to healing relationships. It is a tool for those who want to feel, heal or accelerate their journey of personal growth and awareness. Resolving influences from our past means living in the present, making conscious choices that enhances all aspects of our life.
If “breath is life” then Breathwork is learning to experience life in joy, abundance and peace of mind.
