"The single most effective relaxation technique I know is conscious regulation of breath. By simply putting your attention on your breathing, you move in the direction of relaxation. There are many worse places to have your attention - your thoughts, for one, since thoughts are the source of much of our anxiety, guilt, unhappiness. Get in the habit of shifting your awareness to your breath whenever you find yourself dwelling on upsetting thoughts."
~Dr. Andrew Weil, Natural Health, Natural Medicine
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I just have to share with you how much my breathing has improved since the breath workshop. When I first became aware that something was wrong in my body, I heard a gurgling noise in my lungs when I inhaled lying down. This was in early August. In late September I found out it was fluid in my lungs, caused by advanced, stage IV lung cancer. The fluid got worse and had to be drained twice. I have been steadily improving, but the persistent slight gurgle was there until after the breath workshop! The next day it was gone! I cannot express how happy I am not to hear that noise."
