Breathwork is a Spiritual Gift

“Breathwork is a spiritual gift…You can let go of human misery to be a free and natural person.   Your human personality can be filled with serenity, joy, health and spiritual wisdom.  Breathwork actually delivers more of these things than we can possibly promise.  The reality of them is far more glorious than words.”

Breathwork: The Carrier of Spirit.

‘ Breathwork has the power to be the carrier of Spirit into the body. It has the power to open the entrance to a deep spiritual experience. People become capable of accessing a dimension of spirituality they haven’t been in contact with before. At the end of a session, the breath often seems to be breathed by itself. It becomes completely free and liberated. The body remembers how to breathe naturally. All effort is gone. The boundaries of the body seem to expand and ‘the Self’ is experienced as bathed in light and vastness. There is a tangible connection between our physical and our spiritual self. There is light. It is an experience of spirituality on a physical level.’

Tilke Plateel Deur, Breathworker

Conscious Breathing

“Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment – the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present. You may also notice that you cannot think and be aware of your breathing. Conscious breathing stops your mind.”
