The Breath Within — How Breath Practices Awaken the Spirit and What Science Says about the Benefits

For millennia, yogis have made the breath an integral part of spiritual practice. Even the simple, intimate practice of breath awareness can help us to quickly silence thoughts, calm nerves, soothe anger, and dispel fear. In a live CyberSangha broadcast, invited presenters look at pranayama and other breath practices from Ashtanga, Tibetan, and other forms of yoga. The group will also share scientific interpretations of what goes on as we bring light to our sacred bodies.

I’d just like to add. Technique teachers often focus on stepping back from the momentum of agitation and transmuting the agitation into action based on clearer seeing. I have practiced for over 15 years. I’m at a stage if my body is agitated and I’m connected to that and I ignore it’s inherent intelligence I get sick or a pain physically and/or emotionally. It is functioning as a sort of psychotherapy through prana. But the biggest point now for me, which meditation teachers often tend to glide over, is that the information is important to my mind, I heal through accepting the information of the pain that generates the wobbly prana sensations. Teachers tend to do often focus on transmutation of pain. I feel I’d like to hear more about accepting the root info that my normal functioning mind would run a thousand miles from.

Out of the blue "When things fall apart" by Pema Chodron came to me and it all started there.

There are people who have severe anger issues and sadly they have chronic respiratory issues such as asthma etc. These people should learn to listen to their body, mind and speech.
