How Does Rebirthing Breathwork Work

The transformational effects of rebirthing breathwork can be profound, indeed, life changing; but there is no consensus as to how this outcome is achieved. This paper considers the main reasons advanced to account for the positive results of rebirthing and why they fall short. An alternative model based upon the intersection of the breath and the body’s energy body is advanced.
