Using breathwork participants’ descriptions of their actual experiences, this book documents the power of the breath to catalyze self-exploration and inner healing. The book takes you inside a breathwork session to see both what happens in the room from the standpoint of an outside observer, and what it feels like inside the participant. It discusses the theories of Stanislav Grof, M.D. about human experiences in nonordinary states, and describes how breathwork has aided in healing trauma from post-traumatic stress, childhood sexual abuse, and addiction. The book lists resources to assist those who are participating in breathwork or doing other inner work.
