If we want to talk about anything we have to talk about everything.

Welcome to our Journal. We are so glad you are here!

In these pages we hope to advance the field of Transpersonal Breathwork with a palimpsest of offerings—research articles, first person accounts, art and poetry, musical playlists—and to create a container to discuss, question, collaborate and inform. We welcome your comments and submissions!
