book-cover.jpg“This book does not come with the additional benefit of professional editing. As such, its contents are the raw and uncut narrations of my two and a half years of inner exploration through both “talking” therapy and a process known as Holotropic BreathworkTM. At times, certain sections of the narrative will not make for easy reading. However, it was only through re-experiencing the painful events described that I was finally able to let go of the anger and begin to forgive my tormentors but most of all, begin to acknowledge and accept myself for who I really am….” (Back Cover).

One day while I was sitting at my computer I happened to look up at my shelves and saw the three large ring-binders each containing the detailed handwritten accounts of my thirty Holotropic BreathworkTM sessions and thought I really should do something with those. I realized what a shame it would be to leave them there gathering dust when they might be of some interest or indeed help to perhaps breathwork facilitators in training, people considering embarking on their own journeys or maybe someone already in the process of dealing with their own demons. I decided there and then I was going to put them into book form.

The most enjoyable part of putting the book together was deciding on the cover, although to be honest it didn’t take a lot of thinking about. The idea came very quickly, inspired by an image I had following one of my sessions – a foetus connected by his umbilical cord to the Universe. He was so beautiful, gently floating in space against a background where pastel shades of blue and pink merged into one another.

I had fifty copies printed, most of which I both sold directly and through a local book shop and also gave a few copies to friends and some professionals.

I would be delighted to discuss my sessions and also to hear from those of you who have your own breathwork experiences.
