"What you resist, persists."
-Neale Donald Walsch
Rebirthing is a healing modality introduced by Leonard Orr in the early 70's. Its primary goal is to remove "stuck energies" held in the body due to shallow breathing due to our birth trauma. It clears energy from our physical body, etheric body, emotional body, and mental body.
There are three stages of energy in rebirthing: suppression, activation, and integration. Suppression is the energy held in the body due to unhealthy breathing patterns. Activation is feelings felt as sensations that pass through the body while we breathe. Integration is a completion or healing of something from our past. The rebirthing process allows us to activate this suppressed energy and, by not resisting it, to integrate what we have activated. This modality can be taught either individually or in group workshops. Although it is imperative to learn rebirthing with someone who is trained and experienced, eventually the client is given permission to do it on their own.
