The Healing Breath
to provide a forum of discussion for the richness and diversity of Breathwork practice, psychology, spirituality, techniques, methods, variety of practices, case histories, history, development, and so forth, with place also for the complementary methods and techniques most usually taught alongside Breathwork.
In 1999, inspired by the creation of the International Breathwork Foundation - www.ibfnetwork.org - and the International Society for the Advancement of Respiratory Psychophysiology - ISARP www.ohiou.edu/isarp/ (see 'About Breathwork'), Joy Manné, PhD, created the internet peer-review journal The Healing Breath: a Journal of Breathwork Practice, Psychology and Spirituality to contribute towards the creation of a professional literature of high standards and quality for Breathwork, its Practice, Psychology and Spirituality. The first number appeared at the end of January 1999 on Joy Manné's site www.i-breathe.com. In 2004 the Healing Breath was transferred to its own website: www.HealingBreathJournal.org. Three numbers per year, each usually comprising four articles and several book reviews are published.
The editorial board of The Healing Breath consists of both academically and experientially qualified members. Over the last years the contribution of people in the field of medicine, health and well-being with non-Western academic backgrounds has become increasingly recognised. Once called "alternative" they are now designated "complementary." The Healing Breath recognises the excellent contribution to Breathwork made by people of different trainings and backgrounds and wishes to bring their experience and knowledge together and to put it into the public domain. The purpose of The Healing Breath is to contribute towards the creation of a professional literature of high standards and quality for Breathwork, its Practice, Psychology and Spirituality.
The editors are committed to the widest dissemination for material published in the journal. As well as publishing online they will also explore the possibility for the publication of the contents of the journal from time to time in partnership with traditional presses. Articles from The Healing Breath have been translated into Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
