The Art of Integrative Breathwork Therapy

Book: The Art of Integrative Therapy

– Healing the Past on a Soul Level  –

A book to ease the life of therapists and inspire their clients.

Therapy leads to becoming a happier person

Connected breathing – as it has been practiced for thousands of years – connects thinking and feeling and creates a passageway to spirituality.

Integrative Breathwork enhances and deepens the traditional process of formal psychotherapy and takes healing to levels often untouched by traditional treatments.

‘The Art of Integrative Therapy’ is a source of deep inspiration for therapists and clients alike. It emphasizes the healing influence that emanates from the very special relationship – loving but never intruding – between therapist and client, which is such a basic ingredient for healing.

Schools for therapy and Breathwork around the work will profit greatly by using this book.

“I was given as studying assignment to read your book “The Art of Integrative Therapy”; at the beginning I found it not too easy to “summarize”, but the more I read it, the more I absorbed the messages, the more I liked it … and I ended loving it. A precious book, indeed, … to be slowly assimilated. Thank you again!”

“Een waar geschenk. Naast alle specifieke en zeer precies omschreven methoden van het werk, houdingsaspecten, en achtergrondtheorie, is het net of je naast me op de bank zit, of tegenover mij zit en mij meeneemt in een ademsessie.
Het boek is meegegaan op vakantie in het Noord-Hollands duingebied en ik heb onder het geluid van klapperend tentdoek, het ruisen van de wind en de zee je boek afwisselend lachend, huilend, begrijpend, ja-knikkend, nieuwschierig, verwonderd, integer in mij opgenomen. Het ligt nu als bijbeltje op mijn nachtkastje.
Een waardevolle aanwinst, niet alleen voor ademtherapeuten en cliënten”
