Hello Dan,

I am writing to you from the Swynerton Lodge in a town called Navan. My first public event was at Powerscourt Theatre in Dublin Center. We are holding a number of public seminars and workshops, as well as the ongoing Practitioner Program. It’s not too late to join us! For information, contact Marion: redriveryoga@gmail.com. Tel: 0875624827

I arrived here from Norway, where we had wonderful gatherings in Bergen and on the island of Tysnes.

Thank you to all our new Norwegian breathers, and to our leading practitioner Lars for coordinating everything. Congratulations to our new practitioner candidates Elizabeth, Julio, and Lina. And thank you to Wendy, Michael and Chana, Saskia and Agne, who came from the USA, Spain and Lithuania. It was beautiful to see everyone making deep heart connections. Breathwork really creates family!

From here, I’ll be heading back to Lithuania!

If you have never visited this beautiful part of the world,

here is your chance!

This is an opportunity for you to master the Basics of Breathwork, catch up on the latest developments in Breathing Training, and do a Breath Mastery Intensive. It is an opportunity to continue your ongoing Practitioner Training, or take a big leap forward in your personal and professional development.

We will be bringing the breath together with physiology, psychology and spirituality. We will focus on breathwork for stress, anxiety, depression, and grief. And we will be practicing breathing exercises, techniques and meditations to expand our consciousness, to increase our energy, and to embody more love and light.

July 14-16: Breathwork for health and fitness, for sports and business performance, and for people working in the healing/helping professions.

July 17-23: Annual Summer Breathing Camp! This year we will gather at a beautiful villa near the town of Trakai. (Information about this venue is here: http://www.vilailgai.lt/)

THE BREATH TECH APP

Launching Soon!

image

This unique App offers the same features of the most popular breathing apps in the world, and yet it goes much further. This App offers users a step-by-step training in Breath Mastery.

Our team of experts has invested an extraordinary amount of time, money and energy into its creation. The initial version includes over 100 audio, video, and text lessons.

It reveals the three “Cornerstones of Breath Mastery and the “Basic Series” consisting of seven fundamental breathing exercises, techniques and meditations, that until now could only be learned at live seminars, sessions, and workshops.

It also guides users down their choice of Eight Paths, and up through six ascending levels: Student, Apprentice, Teacher, Expert, Master, and Trainer.

The website under construction for the App is: www.BreathTechApp.com

Later this month, we will make the Breath Tech App available to a small group of students and practitioners, advisors and associates, in order to get user feedback and make any final changes before releasing it to the world. If you would like to be among the group of “beta testers” please let me know: dan@breathmastery.com

ON BREATH AND BREATHING

BREATHING THROUGH GRIEF

image

There seems to be no avoiding the pain that sometimes comes in life. It seems to be part of the human experience. I can personally attest to this after having recently experienced the greatest emotional pain of my life: the death of my son.

It seems that nothing can really prepare us for times like this. And there is really nothing anyone can say or do to help. And yet, it all seems to help—the love and words of support. One thing is certain: there are things we can learn and do to prevent, reduce, or even eliminate the suffering that often comes with the pain.

There is beauty and joy in the flow of all emotions. It’s the beauty and joy and the flow of life—of aliveness itself. And the fact is emotions are far more painful when we resist them than when we open and allow them. Heartache comes from holding onto our emotions and holding back our feelings.

Emotions arise from within as energy, and unless we suppress them or turn them back onto themselves, they naturally express and release outwardly. And yet, it is not just a matter of either expressing or suppressing emotions.

It’s not about putting on a good face to avoid them or to sugar coat the pain. It’s not about burying negative feelings under positive ones. It’s about opening fully to our feelings and allowing our emotions to flow through us.

When we deny feelings, when we suppress emotions, when we contract against them or tense up around them, we create suffering. And when we harden ourselves, emotions can push us into doing or saying hurtful things, or things that don’t serve us.

It’s really about learning to breathe into emotions, and channeling emotional energy into the breathing. It’s about relaxing the body and quieting the mind. It’s about learning to release physical tensions and guard against negative thinking. When you free the breath from the grip of powerful emotions, you free your body and mind, and you free yourself of pain and suffering.

Notice what happens to the breath when powerful emotions take over. It can be very difficult to breathe. The breath can become completely locked up or frenzied and chaotic. When we meet our feelings with the breath, when we channel emotional energy into the breathing, we relieve the body and mind, and ourselves, of a lot of unnecessary suffering.

You may notice that deep sobbing includes extreme exhales. It is as if your body is trying to squeeze out every last drop of pain that is overwhelming the system… like squeezing a sponge. We can help in this process.

Notice too that a big inhale wants to follow that extreme squeezing out of the exhale, in order to refill the system with fresh new energy. When we surrender, or cooperate with our nature during this process we are able to more easily navigate and weather our emotional storms.

Using the breath to open fully and surrender to the force of painful emotions on the front end reduces or accelerates recovery time on the back end. Fighting with this energy weakens us, robs us of life force, and creates additional suffering.

It’s easy to see that when we think about things, those thoughts create feelings… When we allow the thoughts to pass, the feelings also pass. And so, another important thing is to get a handle on our thinking, especially the “should have, could have, would have” kind of thinking.

In general thinking tends to pull us out of our body and into our head. Thinking can also give an unnatural extended life to emotions. So, it’s best to allow thoughts to come and go, and to consciously focus on simply breathing and relaxing when painful feelings arise.

I found that practicing breath awareness and conscious breathing, and being able to breathe fully and freely when anxious, upset, or stressed in everyday life, and during ordinary times, helped me when overwhelmingly powerful emotions took over my system.

Mastering the ability to open and expand (to breathe in), and to relax and let go (to breathe out), and especially mastering connected or continuous breathing (the Rebirthing Breath) is the key.

It’s also extremely important to remember that pain is not only personal: it is also universal. We cannot become so wrapped up and lost in our own suffering that we forget that every day mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters, are lost because of catastrophic illnesses, natural disasters, or insane wars.

Healing happens quickly if we remain connected in love and engaged in life. During the grieving period, it is very important to continue to chop wood and carry water. Dogs still need to be fed, plants still need to be watered, dishes still need to be washed, and the trash still needs to be taken out. Taking care of these things is extremely grounding and therapeutic; and allowing others to see to these things for a time as a way of supporting us is also therapeutic.

It’s good to remember that there really is a silver lining to every cloud, and to consciously look for it or create it! Powerful emotions, whether positive or negative, can crack us open to more love, more compassion, more peace, more joy, and more wisdom.

When we learn to breathe and relax during difficult times, our hearts open, our consciousness expands, and a beautiful space for grace is created, a space for sweetness, humor, gratitude, and for an unshakable peace that passes understanding.

As I was finishing this article, a song by the Byrds began playing:

To everything (turn, turn, turn)

There is a season (turn, turn, turn)

And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

A time to build up, a time to break down

A time to dance, a time to mourn

A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything (turn, turn, turn)

There is a season (turn, turn, turn)

And a time to every purpose, under heaven

And I am reminded of this song by Peter Makena called “Walk in Freedom”:

May you walk in freedom, may you walk in beauty

May you walk in love, may you walk in meditation

May you value truth in a peaceful conversation

May you dance your way to freedom, may your silence fill the sky

May your joy be reflected in your beloved’s eyes

May you be free from danger, may you be free from fear

May your friends see your beauty and may your vision be clear

May you walk in beauty, may you walk in peace

May you always walk in peace

image

Wishing you success and fulfillment,

And many blessings on your path.
