Rebirthing and Breathwork:
A Powerful Technique for Personal Transformation
Rebirthing is a breathing technique. Breathing is our most fundamental bodily function carrying on ceaselessly in the background of our life. But breathing has the potential to do much more than keep us alive. Through Rebirthing, breathing becomes a therapy for resolving many of life’s most intractable problems.
Rebirthing harnesses the power of a full, deep breath to connect us directly with our spiritual core. With Rebirthing breathwork we gently and safely cut through layers of past experiences and limiting beliefs to reach the joy and freedom that lie beneath.
Rebirthing and Breathwork guides the reader through the Rebirthing breathwork technique. The book explains the process of breathing in language that is easy to understand, and vividly describes the wide range of experiences that happen during a breathwork session.
But Rebirthing and Breathwork is more than a guide to therapeutic breathing. Through it, the reader will come to understand much of what makes them who they are and what restricts them from living fully. Then the exercises sprinkled throughout the book offer readers the means to resolve many of the problems that hold them back from happiness.
What are others saying:
“This is probably the best book I’ve read on Rebirthing. It is sensible, very readable, down to earth and provides as much in-depth coverage of the subject as is to be found in print. It’s full of exercises for readers to begin exploring themselves and their lives and gives a beautifully written account of what rebirthing is and does. It is a great guide for people doing rebirthing sessions, but even if people don’t want to do rebirthing themselves, it’s also a great guide to explore your own feelings, thoughts, relationships, etc.”

“Few people, it seems, have come across the practice of rebirthing. Those who hear the term for the first time fear it cannot live up to its promise and do not always take the time to learn about the physical/mental and spiritual benefits it brings to those who use it. Catherine Dowling does much to dispel any fears the reader may have about the practice of rebirthing or conscious connected breathing as it is also known. She explains how she became involved in rebirthing and how it developed as a form of therapy, allowing the reader to become involved themselves through practical exercises which illustrate the points she makes about the power of the breath and the effectiveness of harnessing it to improve our lives. Her explanations are backed up by actual examples taken from her work as a rebirther. This is the third book I have read on rebirthing and out of the three has proved to be the most informative and illuminating in terms of an understanding of the way in which rebirthing developed, it’s benefits and how it can be combined with other forms of therapy and self-development work. It is a very good introduction to the process and practice of rebirthing and also provides interesting insights for those already involved in self-development work. A sensible look at a truly powerful technique.”
