ORDER TODAY: Break Through with Breathwork - Discount for preorders before  October 3, 2017
In this groundbreaking book, clinical psychologist, Jim Morningstar, PhD, shows how to achieve remarkable breakthroughs using the power of Therapeutic Breathwork. 
Unlike the more commonly known mindfulness breathwork techniques-which typically only involve slower-than-normal breathing-Therapeutic Breathwork is designed to also include faster-than-normal breathing  to enervate the sympathetic nervous system. This is especially useful in dealing with releasing blocks that arise while working through difficult emotional issues, including PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety.
Break Through with Breathwork is an accessible and thorough introduction to one of the most powerful tools in supporting health and wellbeing, reducing stress, and stimulating deep emotional and spiritual growth. 
This book will be of special interest to:
  • counselors and practitioners in the healing arts
  • anyone dealing with anxiety, depression, or trauma who has not gotten relief from                     traditional therapeutic approaches
  • agencies and organizations addressing chronic health and behavioral issues

It is a joy to share this material that I have lived and taught for 40 years: 
  • How breath awareness and modulation can give you mental and              emotional self control, 
  • How human consciousness has evolved and with it systems of therapy and breath mastery that fit each stage of this evolution,
  • How trauma is embedded in the nervous system of everyone to some degree and how faster than normal breathing can promote healing, along with 13 integrating techniques and 9 experiential exercises,
  • How we all develop body themes that graphically display our                   strengths and weaknesses and can be built on to our advantage,
  • How breathwork has helped countless people dramatically break through limiting patterns personally and professionally, 
  •  35 life-changing personal accounts included.
