Breath: A Doorway to Potential

Breath is the key to quiet the mind, create space and allow clarity to emerge. Between the ingoing and outgoing breath, there is a centre of stillness, a place of deep mystery and potential. Awaken your intuition and discover what emerges. Find ways to make this internal balance present in your life.
