Breathwork is a powerful modality for use in healing. Our breath connects our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects and affects healing in all these areas.
Improved physical outcomes include reduction or elimination of chronic pain and reduction of the symptoms of insomnia. Improved emotional outcomes include a reduction in symptoms related to depression and the ability to release difficult emotional blocks. Improved mental outcomes include an increase in mental clarity leading to better decision-making and a reduction in stress. Improved spiritual outcomes include the opening of the chakras (especially the heart) and a deeper connection with one’s own divine nature, as well as God or Source.
An excellent ongoing local opportunity to participate in weekly breathwork sessions can be found at Atlanta Unity Church. “Miraculous Powers of the Breath” sessions, facilitated by Kelly Walden and Debi Miller, is held every first Tuesday of the month from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the Chapel. It is necessary to bring your own pillow and two (2) blankets. The cost of each Tuesday session is $30.00 per person. For more information, please call (770) 908-7329.
