WaterBreath was developed by LiOr
Jacob at Passion University, where he conducted rebirthing sessions in body-temperature water. Students reported results that were even deeper than
land-based rebirthing. On land, the body holds itself up against gravity. In WaterBreath,
the muscles, joints, and internal organs relax due to the water's and the
helper's support. The relieved pressure and the warmth of the water improve
blood flow and lymphatic circulation. The synchronized breaths induce waves that
harmonize the body systems. Students experienced significant increase in both
neuromuscular and neurorespiratory integration.
WaterBreath implements the priniciples of Passion Breath. When
the breather is in Space-Breath, the body is in relaxed stillness supported
by the helper, creating a deep meditative state. When the breather
is in Flow-Breath, the body waves freely in the water, allowing for
a natural and gradual opening of energy channels. When the breather
is in Rapture-Breath, the body ripples in refined vibrations, allowing
for powerful energies to move through the spine and the entire body.
The fluid medium enables the breather to naturally move between physical,
mental, and emotional states.
WaterBreath is based on breathwork,
which accesses more refined levels than aquatic bodywork. WaterBreath's other uniqueness
is that the helper's main role is to be a supporting and nurturing
container to the breather's journey. The breather is the one who
is actively breathing, stretching, and dancing effortlessly in the
water. In other aquatic modalities the breather is passive, and the
practitioner actively does the bodywork. WaterBreath thus helps students
to develop their own independent mechanisms of self-healing, encourages
pure expression of their authentic passion, and connects them with
their inner wisdom.
Physiological and Psychological Integration
The physiological changes and mental relaxation induces a liberating
experience that also helps to go beyond preconceived limitations and
constrictions. It invokes high states of exhilaration and long-lasting
sense of well-being. WaterBreath also allows for natural release of
emotions. The caring presence and compassionate touch of the helper
gives the breather a nurturing container to heal and integrate these
natural expressions. Remembering the WaterBreath experience helps to choose supportive new patterns in place of unwanted mental and emotional habits.
In a typical session, you are guided through a journey of breathwork,
emotional release, and deep meditative states. Moments of stillness
and peace... followed by moments of energy flow, stretching, breathing,
vibrating, dancing. You become one with the water and connect to your
inner being. Heart-felt nurturing, like returning to the womb. Aquatic
healing has been described by many as the most nurturing form of healing.
