Tony Lo Mastro & Maureen Malone are sources and expressions of Rebirthing in Philadelphia and New York City. We are grateful to be pioneers in this work and have our homes as centers for the focus and expansion of the work.
Rebirthing is learning a relationship with your breath and the power of the breath as a function of the body. Circular or conscious connected breathing is normal for the body and this mechanism gets suppressed with the emotions and events of the past, possibly for some starting at conception.
Rebirthing (which is circular breathing for approximately an hour) relieves the negative charge in cell memory. Rebirthing sessions with a Practitoner aim to facilitate positive change through working with the breath and taking responsibility for thoughts, feelings and actions. The sessions will help to identify birth trauma, family patterns, inherited attitudes and specific negative thoughts. Rebirthers aim to support clients in using the breath to ground themselves safely in their body during emotional, physical releases and spiritual insights. This encourages the clients' use of Rebirthing methods independently.
Rebirthing connects us to ourselves and gives an experience of present time. We can observe and make conscious choices from a clearer perspective and feeling of well being.
An exciting aspect of Rebirthing is that it addresses the death urge, "the unquestioned loyalty to illness and death as a way of life, also the core belief or personal lie, for example, 'I'm not good enough or there is something wrong with me.'" Thoughts like these are discovered in the first rebirthing session. Also the rebirthers will speak about their clients' relationship with illness and death during their first session. This gives you, as the client, an opportunity to rethink the reasons for being distressed in your body and the possibility of choosing life as a foundation to rebuild upon.
Rebirthing feels good; rebirthing threatens your suffering. When people come to rebirthers, something inside of them is ready to heal and let their burden down in reference to long standing issues from the past. An added benefit of conscious connected breathing is that the increased oxygenation contributes to the release of stress and an experience of more health and vitality.
The Philadelphia Rebirthing Center has a symbiotic relationship with the New York Rebirthing Center; both offer seminars, trainings, community and available rebirthers in your area. There are many rebirthers nationally and internationally. (You will find some listings for them linked to this web site.) We invite you to explore the information and articles on this site. If your curiosity is piqued or your body says yes, consider giving yourself the experience of a session.
