Conscious Breathing presents contemporary Breathwork methods in a comprehensive, structured way for modern readers. Emphasizing the practice as a way to access the most elevated states of consciousness and the deepest states of meditation, author Joy Manne shows how Breathwork can be applied to transpersonal, existential, past life, chakra, Kundalini, shamanic, and other experiences. Using detailed examples, case histories, and exercises, Conscious Breathing covers basic grounding and awareness, advanced breath and body-centered explorations, and explorations of biblical and religious teachings.
"In Conscious Breathing, Joy Manné offers a practical, down-to-earth account of Breathwork and shamanism, two areas of experience that are immeasurably valuable yet often inaccessible to the average reader. Joy’s style flows easily and her years of experience as a breathworker and teacher inform every page of this very comprehensive book." – Catherine Dowling, M.A., H. Dip. Ed.; author of Rebirthing and Breathwork: A Powerful Technique for Personal Transformation
"Joy Manné’s contribution to research and scholarship in the field of Breathwork has been outstanding. This latest book is an essential reference for all students, practitioners, and trainers, and is a guide for anyone wishing to understand the scope and power of the breath." – Ann Harrison, M.A., Dip. Ed.; Breathwork practitioner and trainer; president of the Australian Association for Professional Rebirthers; vice president of the International Breathwork Association
