The Art of Breathing

Prana & the Energy Body

Mondays April 13, 20, 27, May 4 (7 – 9pm EST)




A foundation in basic breath technique is a vital element in our tool kit for living in the 21st century. Everyone should be equipped with breathing skills which demonstrably lower heart rate, boost energy and improve self-management in stressful situations. Even more, centering breath awareness forms the universal core of meditation methods practiced throughout the globe. With the right understanding, a simple breath easily unlocks the door to the ecstasy of spiritual liberation.

In this course you will survey the posture, physiology, psychology and spiritual significance of breath and breath practices with insights drawn from contemporary science as well as from the world’s wisdom traditions. Each session includes practical instruction in natural breath-centered meditation supported by both sacred and secular textual sources.
