Surely we all know how to breathe, yes? Well, not really. Yes, our body breathes on auto pilot, but if left to its own devices it can become shallow and then we starve ourselves of life enhancing oxygen. Chronic stress causes us to breathe like this and coupled with being cooped up in cars and buildings we can soon become depleted.
I remember when I first leaned how to breathe consciously. To be aware of the breath. It felt like coming home, and later with more practice I discovered that it is actually the bridge between the worlds of earth and cosmos. With the breath we connect to soul and spirit, and begin to experience true freedom.
