Rebirthing-Breathwork

Rebirthing-Breathwork


Rebirthing-Breathwork is a breathing technique that claims to 
heal suppressed emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, etc. It 
shares a common belief with various other therapies called 
Rebirthing, with both groups believing that human birth is a
traumatic event[citation needed] and that reviewing or 
revisiting this event, in some way, can have therapeutic benefits. 
However, the actual techniques utilized in Rebirthing-breathwork 
are quite different from those used by these therapies. Also, 
rebirthing-breathwork claims that it can heal suppressed 
emotions regardless at what point in one's life they became 
suppressed.

Rebirthing-Breathwork grew out of the work of Leonard Orr. 
The name rebirthing was first used by Orr and his followers to 
describe the technique and became the subject of the book 
Rebirthing in the New Age which Orr co-wrote with Sondra 
Ray.[1] When Orr first started experimenting with these 
breathing techniques, he noticed that he would often have 
what he described as memories of his birth. He believed that 
by reliving his birth experiences through connected breathing, 
he was in fact healing the trauma of his own birth. Although he 
was at that time unaware of the practices of kriya yoga and 
pranayama, Orr further developed the rebirthing process 
between 1962 and 1974 and discovered for himself that 
modifications in breathing practice appeared to bring about 
improvements in health, mental clarity and emotional well-being.

Development of Rebirthing as a therapeutic modality in its own 
right started in 1974, and has been further developed from that 
time. Accompanied by fellow researchers, Orr refined it into a 
system that can be practiced in the context of a therapy session 
and taught to clients over a series of sessions.

Proponents estimate that, since 1974, more than ten million people 
worldwide have learned the process, with more than one hundred 
thousand people completing practitioner training[citation needed]. 
It is currently a popular alternative treatment system in the United 
States, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy Israel, 
Spain, United Kingdom, and Venezuela.

In Orr's Rebirthing-Breathwork, the main breathing technique is 
a connected breath, where the breather does not pause between 
inhale and exhale. According to facilitators, this causes a build 
up of oxygen in the blood and a build up of prana or life energy. 
Breathing sessions are done individually, (never in groups) lying 
down and usually last one to two hours.
