The Breath Is My Birthright

A memory keeps returning to me. I originally wrote this in 2012. It's the last day of Ramadan today May 12, 2021 and this memory is part of my journey towards healing my physical body. I no longer have the ailments mentioned in this blog post. Yoga, breathwork, meditation and other practices have helped me heal these imbalances in my body. Yet, I continue with these practices and healing continues because there are always new challenges and opportunities for growth. The breath carries me through my life's journey.

I'm in Istanbul, Turkey. I'm guessing it's 4:30 am. I hear chanting, the prayers for Ramadan as I lay awake in my hotel bed.
