Virtual Retreat: Breath-Body-Mind with Dr. Patricia Gerbarg and Dr. Richard P. Brown

Breath-Body-Mind: Caring for Yourself and Others in Troubling Times

The brain listens to the lungs. When we change our pattern of breathing, we change the way we think feel, and connect to ourselves and others. Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg show how to quickly shift your psychophysiological state from stress/worry to calmness/clarity/compassion. Their methods help thousands of healthcare providers, disaster survivors, and people under stress in the US and worldwide. Quiet your busy mind and deepen your meditation with the award-winning authors of The Healing Power of the Breath.
