Tribute to Leonard Orr

On Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 12 pm ET / 5 pm GMT, we will hold The 2nd Annual Tribute to Leonard Orr.

Leonard D. Orr is the father of the modern breathwork movement. Practically every school or style or method of breathwork that has sprung up over the past 40 years owes a debt of gratitude to Leonard and his conscious breathing technique called Rebirthing. He was a prolific writer and a unique spiritual teacher, philosopher, transformational change agent and global activist. Because of him, millions of people around the world have embraced breathwork as a lifestyle path. And so, every year at The Breathing Festival, conscious breathers all over the world remember and celebrate his life and work.
