Two Styles

There are broadly two styles of breathwork – both are conscious breathing.

Sympathetic activation through stronger and faster than normal conscious breathing which winds up the system and brings cramping and spasms and emotional type releases.
The approach can be said to go beyond your comfort zone
It allows release yet maybe not resolution

Parasympathetic activation applied in Breathwork Mastery ( RBM ) which is longer than normal conscious breathing which mainly unwinds the system and allows the constrictions in the system to drop out as body sensation discharges.
The approach can be said to go into your comfort zone and start to embody deeper ease and inspiration.

With the unwinding of the system = parasympathetic allowance is in place with Breathwork Mastery RBM as a path of self generated authentic mastery.
Mastery here meaning authentic and automatic ease.
It allows resolution to occur
The total time frame of a RBM breath session is approx two and a half hours

Pranayama and Breathwork differences ?
Pranayama is to withdraw the senses as a base for meditation
Facilitated by a trained yoga teacher
Breathwork RBM is to activate the senses for awareness of changes indicating discharges of constrictions in the session
Facilitated by a Certified RBM Breathworker
Breath awareness group ?
is a time spent on more conscious breathing and requires no certification or qualifications

RBM Approach

Nine defining points of Rebirthing/Breathwork Mastery (RBM) as a strand of Breathwork
1. Emphasis on body sensation awareness as well as conscious breath all through the breath session – it is a body/breath process.
2. Emphasis on self-mastery – individuals are self-generating their personal development process and are self-regulating organisms – RBM is a creative tool.
3. Awareness on process – when an individual is safe enough, supported enough, and ready enough, he or she will discharge unresolved past events – allow time and awareness in the process.
4. Application of well-chosen intention setting within the process – relate all the content of the breath cycle of the session to the intention in an integrative debrief.
5. Use of breath that allows a physical, mental, feeling or spiritual, transformational experience – start with conscious, longer than normal breathing, so it is connected and full, in and out the nose until or unless the nose closes. Stay with the feeling it is hard to breathe or easy.
6. Allow the breath session to unfold with minimum intervention – use the debrief afterwards to integrate all the wisdom, inspiration or clearing that emerges during the breath cycle
7. Be present to, name and identify exactly what is happening on each level of the breath session, without adding any interpretation – gently amplify whatever emerges to create the environment for discharge of constrictions on all levels.
8. Awareness of safety – a breather can only regress to something that he or she has already lived through – any past event which is surfacing from conscious breath is because of intention – the inner experience is invited to surface and any intense symptoms are immediately affected by a change in intention.
9. Agenda free focus for facilitation with an emphasis on expanding self-awareness, and self mastery for the participant and the facilitator .
Breath

RBM specific breath techniques of 7 steps for breath cycle

1. Conscious breath
2. Full breath, using the navel and below, the chest and the upper chest and above – from breathing longer than normal and slower
3. Connected breath, no pauses – from being longer than normal and slower
4. Relaxed or subtle breath – longer than normal and slower
5. Inhale and exhale from the nose until or unless it blocks
6. Breath remains linked to body sensation awareness and attention to variations in breath, body and consciousness
7. Awareness on if it is hard or easy to breathe
Practitioner

Certified RBM Practitioner defining code

* Absolutely minimum intervention
* Agenda free
* Holding high positive regard for “client generated” body-breath process after intention setting
* High listening-oriented facilitating with relevant questioning only from client signals
* Main role is professional support for highly motivating client intentions at the beginning of the session – with feedback from professional knowledge – only at the very end – if appropriate
Intentions

RBM Intentions setting techniques

Intentions are the state of being you intend to have from your personal goals. It’s what you have in your heart and mind.
Example
Goal is specifically to become a Breathworker
Intention is to do what you love and value for yourself and with others
High recommendation
For big picture life enduring intentions ?
– like ? “be true to myself”

Add
“Step by integrated step”

And another 180 hours plus for group facilitator
Two aspects of schools of Breathworker training
1- Breathworker as guide – for therapeutic outcomes for clients.
2- Breathworker as professional support person – for supporting expanding self awareness as a pathway of self mastery for clients – which has theraupedic consequences
Relevant information Important
Peak body Australian Breathwork Association ABA
ABA is a not for profit association body legally based with the Department of Fair Trading DOFT in NSW since 1996. There is no national association registration body. It follows model rules for meetings and members to remain not-for-profit organisations. It is made up of a number of schools and institutions from different states. The model rules have become the ABA constitution with all changes made and recorded in minutes and other records. Members can vote. Charities, Foundations, Associations and Societies are the other names for bodies of Schools, Skill sets to create standards of registration and issue their own Certificates. The School or Trainer issues a Certificate not the peak body.
ABA is operated by volunteers since 1996 although officers can be paid. See model rules for on the DOFT NSW site.

Therefore it is called a peak body – with standards
