This is a multidimensional experience, encompassing many facets of our being. It helps to lift chakra vibrations to their natural, higher frequencies. This practice also helps eliminate sources of psychosomatic disease, tensions, inhibitions and repressed emotions. It employs an ancient, cathartic, healing breath which activates and purifies our emotional memory at the cellular level.
