About Rebirthing...

Rebirthing is a gentle, yet powerful, process which uses the breath to clear and cleanse the physical, mental, and emotional bodies, bringing about a new integration of mind, body and Spirit. It was developed by Leonard Orr in the early '70's, although it is actually a very ancient practice, related to pranayama yoga. It was originally called Rebirthing because memories from birth often surface to be healed. Besides Leonard Orr, other well-known authors in this field include Sondra Ray, Bob Mandel, Phil Laut, Jim Leonard, and Colin Sisson. I've included a few links which will help familiarize you with Rebirthing.

Over the past 40+ years, it has spawned the development of a variety of personal growth and therapeutic processes, which are today collectively known as "Breathwork.”   (Many practitioners, including Leonard Orr, now use the term “Rebirthing Breathwork,” or “Conscious Connected Breathing” due to a fatal accident in Colorado in the late 1990s where a therapist used the term rebirthing to describe a totally different process.)  Other practices which have their origin in the original rebirthing process include Vivation, Holotropic Breathwork, Transformational Breathwork, Integrative Breathwork, Energetic Breathwork, etc.  These and more are represented in the International Breathwork Foundation (IBF), which sponsors the annual Global Inspiration Conference.

Since 1981, I have been a professional rebirther, as well as a licensed psychotherapist, conducting dozens of Rebirthing workshops and trainings. I love Rebirthing, and have found it to be the single most valuable tool I've found for my own self-awareness, self-healing and personal growth. Many of my clients feel the same way. In the initial stages, Rebirthing is best experienced through a series of individual sessions with an experienced Rebirther. Ultimately, Rebirthing is a life-long self-help process.

Individual Appointments

At this time, I schedule individual rebirthing appointments during weekdays in Florida. Please contact me directly for further information. In addition, I occasionally conduct Rebirthing seminars and workshops, although none are currently scheduled. I am also available for speaking engagements on this topic.

Introductory Rebirthing Seminars

These seminars provide an introduction to Rebirthing and Spiritual Psychology and, while they are primarily informational, they are often quite transformative. This seminar is a prerequisite for other Rebirthing activities.

Rebirthing Days

These one-day workshops are each centered around a particular theme (to be announced), and include paired rebirthing sessions and well as other types of self-awareness processes.

Rebirthing Intensive

This four-day workshop provides more information and experience with Rebirthing technique, and tools for recognizing and releasing common limiting patterns. It includes hot and cold water wet rebirthing for those who have sufficient experience with "dry" rebirthing. Workshop dates to be announced. Contact me directly to register.
