Discover how the power of the Breath awakens one not only to greater physical health but Spiritual Wholeness as well!

Spiritus is the Latin word for “breath”, and spiritual seekers – including Western mystics, Indian yogis, Taoist sages – have known for millennia that breathing is a pathway to higher levels of consciousness. Most people don't realize that not breathing optimally limits our physical energy and quality of life but also our ability to access those deepest spiritual levels of our being.

This Spiritual Path was forged many decades ago when Judith Kravitz utilized the power of conscious integrative breathing after being diagnosed with throat cancer. Her self-healing journey had, in effect, taken Breathwork into new territory creating a walkable bridge to those highest aspects of our Selves that other forms of modern breathwork had not touched. Transformational Breath is clearly experienced on the physical, mental, and emotional levels. It also operates on the level of Causality – Spirit, where real healing takes place, which ultimately makes it a Spiritual modality. This is not a religious course, it is about exploring and experiencing our multi-dimensionality; bringing the physical, mental, emotional and Spiritual together leading us to our innate Wholeness.

Michael on YouTube

"We are the teacher, doctor, priest or life coach we are looking for. This does not negate the blessing of outer facilitation. The momentary presence of an authentic facilitator in our field assists us greatly. They are an external manifestation of an inner act of approaching the Radiance of Presence."
-- Michael Brown, Author
