Healing in Paradise participants practice SRI with Donald Epstein in Manzanillo, Mexico
Somato Respiratory IntegrationTM exercises (based on Donald Epstein’s book, The 12 Stages of Healing) are designed to help the brain to reconnect with the body and its experience. The goal of Somato Respiratory IntegrationTM is to help an individual develop lifetime skills, safety, strength, wisdom and love in relationship to the experience of his/her body, its vibration, structure, and energy. Through reconnecting a person’s breath, touch, focused movement and attention, they are able to experience the body more fully and instantly shift their state of consciousness to one that supports trust for the body-mind and their life experience.

"SRI has been a great companion with the NSA. It's helped me understand how my breath affects my etrainments and I trust the process more. If I come to an SRI session feeling scattered and a victim of my emotions, this breath awareness can completely change my state and I feel focused and centered."
