During the Rebirthing process, feelings, thoughts, memories and transpersonal visions normally stored in the unconscious of the psyche - begin to surface. These may burst out in tears or laughter along with repressed thought patterns and scenarios, as the body releases its stored stress or holding patterns. After full expression, a new perspective is usually embraced by the individual, often coming from the intelligence of the heart, higher self or inner core of wisdom. Besides healing the past, this breathwork also assists to access and expand transpersonal levels of consciousness and being, which can involve a profound awareness of inner radiance, stillness and silence. The latter phase of the session usually induces relaxation into a very deep state of peace and bliss.
