Celebrating the Benefits of Breathwork

By June 8, 2021March 19th, 2023No Comments

One of the biggest results or benefits of breathwork for me is how it quiets my mind and takes me to a soft place of inner silence, stillness and peace, where there is no thought, no movement, and no ego… Just pure blissful awareness!

During my recent adventure with covid, I found myself spending a lot of time in that blissful state between waking and sleeping, where my mind feels spacious and my body feels weightless.

Throughout my bout with covid, I resisted taking any drugs or medical supplements. My practice was simply to open and relax and, to be with my breathing, allowing my breath to flow, and allowing myself to flow with it.

Whenever I found myself caught up in uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, I would remind my body to relax, and I would return my attention to the breath in order to quiet my mind. Sometimes I would consciously generate thoughts and feelings of peace and comfort, which caused the breath to move or pause or change in some way.

Sometimes I would focus on counting or pacing my breath or sensing it with my whole body, which resulted in even more comfort and peace—despite the suffering! And so, once again I am celebrating the art and science of breathwork!

And I am not alone in this celebration. Here is a list of results and benefits sent to me by other breathworkers in our community. Maybe you have experienced them:
