Good book on philosophy of breathing

I bought this book hoping for examples of practical techniques and recipes of breathing practices to help heal various physical, mental and spiritual ailments.

What I got was a book devoted to the history and philosophy of breathing practices from Tibetan Yoga, and a recommendation that if you want specifics you should find a teacher.

So this book is for those wanting a general overview of breathing in the Tibetan tradition and how it is used and what it may help you with in life. If you want specific techniques buy something else, or find a teacher! LOL

More about Buddhism than breath exercises

I enjoyed book but found title misleading for me. One simple breath exercise is taught and the rest focused on Buddhist philosophy and meditative approaches in conjunction with breath. All good stuff just not what I expected.

Helpful info on Tibetan breathing techniques

The narrator has a very pleasant English accent. The book serves as a good introduction to some of the techniques and benefits of the different breathing exercises. A good place to start on your path to learn about yoga/ Tibetan breathing practices.

prescription for happiness in a troubled world

It dawned on me many years ago that materialism and greed are not the source of happiness. Neither is being a selfless do-gooder at all times.

Using breath to work through troubled emotions and to deepen spirituality hold greater promise.

my favorite book on breathworktopic is breath of yoga by richard rosen. here goes into great detail on how to get started,precise techniques of each breathing style, how to maintain motivation and the benefits you get from sustained practice.

this book comes at it from a different angle detailing the health and the spiritual benefits of practice. this to bug should be required reading for everybody on earth. surprisingly this kind of information is not available in most schools in america.

i'm not very optimistic about the prospects of the future of humanity.

but since we're all in this together it's good to have a tonic for a world full of suffering. it sounds cynical put that way, but the truth is you need this more than ever because life is about suffering in every age of our existence on this planet.

in many ways life is the best it's ever been for the lucky few. sadly , people in the power seem to have a way of making things worse for future generations.

i hope i'm wrong and that sometime soon all the people of the world will get together to make the world a better place.
