Wash Away Pain with Breath-Body-Mind 


Breath-Body-Mind is a unique fusion of ancient practices from many cultures that are enhanced by our understanding of modern neuroscience. The resulting methods are designed to induce profound, rapid changes in how we experience our physical, emotional, and mental states.   

Join integrative psychiatrists, Richard P. Brown, MD, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD, for a three-day online program that begins with simple but powerful healing breath practices including:

  • Coherent breathing
  • 4-2-4-2 and 4-4-6-2 breathing
  • Imaginative breath moving
  • Glow and vibrate breathing

These practices are taken to deeper levels with Open Focus Awareness—a method developed by Dr. Brown and derived from Open Focus Attention training, yoga, and Tibetan Buddhist meditation. Open Focus Awareness uses breath, movement, visualization, and sound to create a state of expanded, relaxed awareness in which we can bring about profound changes in physical and emotional pain.  

This course is suitable for anyone who needs to reduce pain. This course is also suitable for healthcare practitioners, physical therapists, and mind-body teachers, interested in expanding their skills in pain management. 

Requirements During this course, participants must keep their cameras on to enable the teachers to carefully monitor everyone and provide any coaching that is necessary for the optimal performance of the practices. 

NOTE You will have access to the video recording(s) for 30 days after the program ends. All recordings will be available within 72 hours of the end of each session. To support your ongoing practice at home, you will be given a manual and access to videos of this program, information about BBM practice sessions, and other resources.
