What is Rebirthing Breathwork?
Rebirthing Breathwork is an active breathing process that inspires access to your full potential for joy, aliveness and peace in life. In Rebirthing Breathwork therapy, the breath is a highly transformational tool that supports:
- learning how to free your physical and emotional body from traumatic or suppressed experiences such as unconscious birth memories
- a movement away from victimhood and toward the ability to make independent choice in your life
- the integration of previously inaccessible emotional, physical, mental and spiritual energies
- the release of any negative emotional charge from cellular memory
- an experience of clarity at a very core level
How does Rebirthing Breathwork work?
Rebirthing Breathwork’s predominant characteristic is simplicity. It begins with you lying down, relaxing and just breathing. It uses an easy to follow breathing technique called ‘conscious connected circular breathing’ that is guided by a trained Breathwork facilitator.
The process of long and careful attention to the circular breath technique exposes multiple layers of inhibitions and unconscious patterns of defenses that have developed from birth and throughout your life that have blocked your pleasure and aliveness. You can neutralize and integrate whatever surfaces by simply breathing through it even as you maintain present awareness and know that you are safe.
Throughout the session, your breath is the key to:
- bringing an immediate realization of the issues that take you backwards instead of forward and releases them.
- dissolving any resistance you might have to experiencing your strength and pre-birth purity of being.
- connecting to the main strength inside you, which is life.
- accepting that an ideal condition of life is possible.
- surfacing old records that need processing.
The Science of Rebirthing Breathwork
Quite simply, our memories and experiences are stored and organized in the Associative Cortex and Hippocampus parts of the brain respectively.
The Amygdala is part of the more primitive part of the brain that stores the emotions and feelings associated with those memories and experiences.
When we experience something new that awakens our senses, the Hippocampus communicates with the Amygdala’s stored emotions. This searches its database for similar past experiences in order to resurface a similar emotional reaction to the new experience.
In turn, the Amygdala sends this information to the P.F.C. (pre-frontal cortex – the part of your brain which makes decisions). On a physical level some sort of decision is made in accordance with the feelings that are associated with past experience. In this way, according to scientific research, very few decisions are actually made consciously. Rather they are a response to feelings, which are reproduced in accordance with our stored experience.
The Rebirthing Breathwork technique works on a cellular level to uncover when, how and why past feelings were stored and how we reproduce them in life according to our sensory inputs.
Rebirthing Breathwork is a complete technique that works mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally and psychologically. It is considered absolutely safe because the body and mind use their own built-in protective mechanism to always uncover only enough for our safety and security.
Breathwork Over the Years
The healing power of the breath was known and used in ancient times. Recent research covering the past 40+ years starts with the Rebirthing Breathwork techniques of Leonard Orr’s.
Today, the Rebirthing Breathwork technique is considered a holistic process because it addresses the multi-dimensional aspects of our self, which include:
It is an absolutely safe process that only surfaces issues when we are in the right mindset and timeframe to acknowledge them and therefore release them. You can use Rebirthing Breathwork for anxiety, trauma, sleep, stress and depression, or to change your reality.
Your thoughts define your reality. As thoughts and feelings are co-related, Rebirthing Breathwork helps you view the world and your selves through a different perspective that is more conscious.
