In this episode, author of The Reluctant Healer David Elliott explains how breathwork helps to get people out of their head and into their heart.
In his conversation with Omega digital media director Cali Alpert, he unpacks the physiology—how the breath practice causes more oxygen to travel through the bloodstream to the brain, creating enough energy (and electricity) to trigger the hypothalamus, and release endorphins to ductless glands such as the pineal, thymus, and adrenals.
David talks about his own journey with healing, as an actor in Los Angeles who was encouraged to embrace his clairaudience. Ultimately, he says, the healer is neutrally holding space like a spiritual midwife, and the breathwork is the tool that opens the door to a spiritual experience.
