Physiologically it makes sense since up to 70% of body waste is
eliminated through our breathing; breathing fully and freely supports
us in cleansing and purifying on all levels. Breathwork is one of
the purest and most effective techniques to release stress and tension,
bring awareness and resolution to old trauma trapped in the physical
body, and assist us in accessing our own internal healing energy.
By learning to breathe consciously and fully, we can experience
a heightened awareness of ourselves and the patterns in our life,
and we are able to more easily discover the old imprints and limiting
beliefs held in our subconscious mind. This expanded level of consciousness
stimulates our natural ability to transform these old thoughts and
patterns and return to a deeper sense of calm and wholeness.
Clarity Breathwork has evolved out of the work of the International
Breathwork and Rebirthing Community, originally founded through
the pioneering work of Leonard
Orr, and advanced by the dedication and practice of Sondra
Ray and many others. Dana Delong has been practicing and refining
Rebirthing and Breathwork techniques for over two decades, and is
very skillful in holding a safe and nurturing space for her clients.
From this place, one can come to a deeper level of attentiveness
within and discover treasures hidden beyond conscious awareness.

been a therapist for almost 20 years I have been profoundly amazed
at the capacity of the gentle breathing process of Clarity Breathwork
to awaken and unblock painful memories, release deeply held negative
beliefs and allow a natural state of forgiveness and acceptance
to evolve. I have experienced it personally as a powerful therapeutic
technique. It not only helps ease my physical pain, but also diminishes
the burdens of my heart. I recommended it for anyone interested
in deepening self-awareness and healing on all levels.”

Clarity BreathworkTM Training Program, Levels I, II, III, and IV
Level I: Transformation and Breath
This two-day intensive provides the opportunity to accelerate
your own personal and spiritual growth. We provide information on
the components of Clarity Breathwork: the breath itself, metaphysical
perspective, and the breathwork community. Working from the premise
that beliefs are creative, participants explore how imprints from
birth, early childhood, and past lives may be affecting their lives
now. Breathwork sessions and transformational processes guide participants
to release these imprints and limiting thoughts and beliefs from
the cells of their bodies. Core limiting beliefs are identified
and transformed. Forgiveness processes assist in letting go of old
beliefs, patterns and resentments. Increasing the attention and
focus on the truth of who you are aids in embodying and living it!
Depending on which trainers are teaching this component, various
emphases may be offered such as:
- Breath, Transformation & Movement
- Breath & Relationship
- Breath, Sacred Sound & Transformation

Sanskrit word for breath is 'prana,' meaning 'life-force,' the vital
energy that flows through our being. Active conscious breathing
engages specific breathing techniques to open the respiratory system,
raise the frequency in the body, and integrate repressed emotions.
Breath is always now, beyond mind and form, and connects us with
the true essence of our being."
~Maya Deva Adjani
