      I did some slow breathing in a huge empty church this morning and it was awesome.

      Seven books of the Chinese Tao dating back to around 400BC focussed entirely on breathing, how it could kill us or heal us, depending on how we used it

      And yet we prefer to swallow pills for the slightest headache

      Great read! The author was recently on Rogan. Really good episode. He goes deep on some of the topics mentioned in the article and a bunch more. It's crazy how detrimental poor breathing habits can be (he talks extensively about mouth-breathing and sleep apnea) and what can be achieved through breath work.

      Inspiring. Breath is the key to life.

      Hindus considered breath and spirit the same thing and described elaborate practices that were meant to balance breathing and preserve both physical and mental health. Then there were the Buddhists, who used breathing not only to lengthen their lives but to reach higher planes of consciousness.
