This short audio presentation by Dr Denis McBrinn and narrated by Sara Dylan is designed to bring a clear understanding of what breathing is, how to use it, and to lead you gently into reflection of how you can use breathing to bring inner tranquillity into your life.
“If you want to reduce the anxiety from living, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray
Breathing is for life!
We could survive without food for several weeks. Without water, the maximum we could survive is one week. Without sleep, we begin to hallucinate after 3 or 4 days.
But without breathing it is minutes!
Most of the time we are completely unaware of our breathing but without it, oxygen does not get into our lungs.
Not breathing deeply enough results in lack of energy and moodiness.
Just by taking a few deep breaths, regularly, you will calm your mind and relax your body.
How this short audio learning experience works:
This audio presentation has been designed using an experiential learning model, Kolb, D. A. (1984): concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation.
By taking this approach we hope to cater for all learning styles.
You will be given specific new information in the recording usually as “key tips”, “explanations” and “quotes”. You will be led through a gentle but positive meditative reflection process to assist you before conceptualisation and then putting your new skills into practice.
You will be encouraged to return to the recording from time to time to re-listen and reinforce your learning and the desired changes in your life.
