Long used by meditators as a way to inner peace, health, and vitality, intentional breathing can also be used as a calming technique when encountering stress, pain, and fear. In Breathing, Michael Sky offers simple breathing exercises that are intended to be experienced as they are read. He discusses breath, the central organizing life force, as it relates to emotional responses, lifetime habits, sleep, childbirth, sexual communion, and higher consciousness.
""Breathing "is suitable for even the most novice beginner. The author does a good job of explaining how breathing affects the body in general, and in various associated aspects, in more detail. Of particular interest are the rebirthing and sexual energies sections."
