What kind of life do we unconsciously create when we are not fully present? We believe inspiration and inner wisdom can more easily flow into our lives when we are present, aware and practice the simple act of being.

“We conclude that breathwork interventions […] widely used to reduce stress among the general population are effective in targeting panic and stress in patients clinically diagnosed with anxiety. However, our analysis also suggests that breathwork techniques and protocols play significant roles in health outcomes.”

Our international Breath, Body & Sound retreats are beginning again, this week in Italy. We meet our group today in Siena, Italy to travel to Le Pianore Monticello Amiata retreat center for our first Breath, Body & Sound retreat since early 2020.

“You see, everything is about belief. Whatever we believe rules our existence, rules our life. The belief system we create is like a little box we put ourselves inside of; we cannot escape because we believe we cannot escape. That is our situation. Humans create their own boundaries, their own limitations. We say what is humanly possible, and what is not possible. Then just because we believe it, it becomes truth for us.” - Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love
