Rebirthing is an extraordinarily powerful breathwork practice. It has been called the "Kriya Yoga of the modern age". Leonard Orr is the founder of Rebirthing beginning in the 1970's. He discovered that by connecting the inhale and exhale in a circular powerful breath for an hour that enormous shifts took place. The body takes in twice as much oxygen while remaining still and this alters the body chemistry temporarily which opens up portals to the subconscious and metaphysical worlds. The breath creates a bridge to hidden parts of ourselves, awakening ancient emotions, trapped desires. Once the subconscious begins to rise to consciousness great healing can take place.
