The ‘Dance of Breath’ - 31/10/2014

Fired up after the last GIC (Ireland) and having a little time together, Dani‘lle de Wilde and myself, having listened to a poetry CD on our GIC journey, decided to create an audio treat for people who might want some guidance with their breathwork between sessions.
Combining the poetry (of Mary Oliver) and breathing guidance, Dani‘lle inspires with her voice, over the music melded in the back ground by Robert, for a CD length journey (78 minutes) which we called 'Dance of Breath'.

This is available as a download, with a French language version as well as English.

DO AS ONE 11/11 - 29/10/2014

Dear Global Breathworker Come-Unity,

On 11/11, we encourage as many people as possible to participate in a mass experiment in synchronous intention.
Organize gatherings with your friends and family, and offer your intention, prayer or vision for the world as One.
Get ready for the big moment by creating the energetic vibration you would like to share with the world: laugh, dance, pray, meditate, do yoga, play music...and Breathe  its totally up to you.
