Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In Conscious Breathing, Joy Manné offers a practical, down-to-earth account of Breathwork and shamanism, two areas of experience that are immeasurably valuable yet often inaccessible to the average reader. Joy’s style flows easily and her years of experience as a breathworker and teacher inform every page of this very comprehensive book."
- Catherine Dowling, M.A., H. Dip. Ed.; author of Rebirthing and Breathwork: A Powerful Technique for Personal Transformation

"Joy Manné’s contribution to research and scholarship in the field of Breathwork has been outstanding. This latest book is an essential reference for all students, practitioners, and trainers, and is a guide for anyone wishing to understand the scope and power of the breath."
- Ann Harrison, M.A., Dip. Ed.; Breathwork practitioner and trainer; president of the Australian Association for Professional Rebirthers; vice president of the International Breathwork Association
