Attendees will be introduced to the gentle pattern of breathing known to increase productivity, reset the central nervous system, promote integration of the brain’s left & right hemispheres, and create the peaceful internal environment necessary for healing, emotional/mental processing, and physical wellbeing. It is offered at no charge to the community and will be facilitated by Michael Brian Baker, the founding member of The Breath Center, teacher of oral traditions, & arts practitioner in Ojai CA.
A gathering of like minded community members seeking a collective pause and rejuvenation from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

This will be a simple to practice breath that is not related to rebirthing or holotropic patterns. It will be practiced laying down, relaxed very little effort required. – Very very good for the body mind and soul.
