by Leonard Orr, Founder of Rebirthing Breathwork
For me Rebirthing has two main definitions:
Rebirthing-Breathwork, aka Intuitive Energy Breathing or Conscious Energy Breathing,
is the ability to breathe Energy as well as air. It is the art of
learning to breathe from the Breath Itself. Rebirthing is perhaps the
most valuable self-healing ability that humans can learn. We can not
have disease and relaxation in the same space at the same time.
Relaxation is the ultimate healer. Every breath induces relaxation.
Therefore, breathing is the basic healer. Conscious Energy Breathing is
the most natural healing ability of all. This ability involves merging
the inhale with the exhale in a gentle relaxed rhythm in an intuitive
way that floods the body with Divine Energy.
Rebirthing also means to unravel the birth-death cycle and
to incorporate the body and mind into the conscious Life of the Eternal
Spirit - to become a conscious expression of the Eternal Spirit. This
involves healing the eight biggies of human trauma, which are the birth
trauma, the parental disapproval syndrome, specific negatives, the
unconscious death urge, karma from past lives, the religion trauma, the
school trauma, and senility, etc.
Rebirthing as I teach it is a very important spiritual work
involving a series of Conscious Intuitive Energy Breathing cycles that
give people more health, happiness, success, and peace of mind.
Watching Divine Energy move in our own body and mind is very magical,
mystical, and miraculous. I never cease to be amazed by this work
because it is the essence of Life Itself.
Most people learn Rebirthing - Conscious Breathing in a very high
quality way by receiving 10 two hour private sessions from a well
trained Rebirther Breathworker.
