Rebirthing, or conscious and circular breathing, is the method discovered by Leonard Orr in mid seventies in California. It’s popularity stems from great simplicity and efficiency of the procedure, based on basic, natural function of life – breathing. It is known that breathing and its regulation forms the base of many of the self-development systems, because it encourages the mental concentration and fills the body with energy. Rebirthing also uses breathing, but as a system for self-healing – psychological and physical.
People are usually not aware of the elementary force hidden in the breath and it’s rhythm, in inhaling and exhaling. The solution for many problems that trouble contemporary human beings lies in even, continuous and deep breathing. Although important, external breathing is just a rough reflection of subtle inner breathing that takes place in eternal circulation of breath. Non-inhibited, conscious and continuous breathing, the kind that belongs to small children or animals, is the most accurate reflection of that inner circulation. Leonard Orr talks about this kind of breathing when he says that through rebirthing human beings contact the Universal energy field or Endless Being.Basic purpose of rebirthing is remembering and re-experiencing the moment of birth, reliving the psychological, physiological and spiritual experience of our first breath and becoming free from it’s trauma. Procedure starts by transforming the subconscious impression of birth from primal pain to pleasure and satisfaction. Effects on our lives happen immediately – negative energy patterns disappear, getting younger replaces the ageing processes. Rebirthing also releases blocked muscles, inhibited breathing, negative emotions that were imprinted into muscles, problems with spine, blood-circulation and sexual life. With rebirthing, we free ourselves from physical and emotional aspect of traumatic experiences of different kinds – from current, and also from past lives.
One session of rebirthing lasts between 45 to 90 minutes, and it can be done individually or in groups, with the rebirther who controls the process.
