In this episode, I reflect upon how our next breakthrough moment is as close as our next breath.
I recently picked up the book Just Breathe by Dan Brulé and was not only reminded about all the ways I want to deepen my breathing practice, but also the science behind why it’s so transformational. Buy or borrow this book if you don’t already have a copy, it’s one you’ll want to reference again and again.
Dan is a world-renowned pioneer in breathwork who trains people to use the power of breath and breathing to relax and energize their body, focus and expand their mind, calm and balance their emotions, and nourish and uplift their soul. I love his definition of breathwork: “Breathwork is the use of Breath Awareness and Conscious Breathing for healing and growth, personal awakening, and transformation of spirit, mind and body.”
We’re talking stress reduction, we’re talking weight loss, we’re talking awakening your intuition, we’re talking tapping into your creativity, we’re talking mastering your energy. I mean, where to even begin! Well, by listening to this episode of course!
This episode is so full of insights and tips it's a satisfying meal! ;)
