Words of Charlotte Selver from Reclaiming Vitality and Presence.

"Exploring breathing really needs to be a practice, but a practice which is absolutely new each time, not a repetition of old ways, but a finding out what is going on in the condition and activity in which you happen to be at a particular moment.  No moment can be compared with another; in each there is something new to discover... It is one of the most wonderful, most gratifying practices in which you can engage, because as you are finding out about breathing through experiencing it, you will become quieter and quieter, freer and freer, healthier and healthier, and more and more alive."
