From the Jacket:

For thousand of years spiritual seekers, mystics and yogis have realized the innate spiritual quality of the breath. If we stop breathing for just a few minutes we are dead. Life force is therefore contained in the breath that we breathe. Yogis for ages have used the powers of breath to transform consciousness; indeed a psychospiritual reaction takes place with the use of these breathing techniques.

Altered states of awareness and profound healing are possible with just using the breath. Today we are privileged to have teachers to instruct us on the proper use for these purposes.

Scientists have done research on things that give us lots of energy to do all we need to do to go from 'rags to riches' physically, mentally and spiritually. Of all these things, from coffee to ginseng to artificial stimulants to working out, they found that just 15 minutes of deep breathing can give us all the energy we need for the day. This book covers the numerous benefits that simple breathing techniques, which are described here, can bring us.

Preface

For thousands of years spiritual seekers, mystics and yogis have realized the innate spiritual quality of the breath. If we stop breathing for just a few minutes we are dead. Life force is therefore contained in the breath that we breathe. Yogis for ages have used the powers of breath to transform consciousness; indeed a psycho-spiritual reaction takes place with the use of these breathing techniques.

Altered states of awareness and profound healing are possible with just using the breath. Today we are privileged to have teachers to instruct us on the proper use of the breath for these purposes.

Scientists have done research on things that give us lots of energy to do all we need to do to go from "rags to riches" physically, mentally and spiritually. Of all these things, from coffee to ginseng to artificial stimulants to working out, they found that just 15 minutes of deep breathing can give us all the energy we need for the day.

In this book, we cover the numerous benefits that simple breathing techniques, which are described here, can bring us.
