Introducing the Divinity IN with Calm Breathing (Kokyuho IN)
The Divinity IN with Calm Breathing (Kokyuho IN) combines the movements of the Divinity IN for Humanity with a special breathing method (kokyuho, 呼吸法). Because the audible rhythm of this breathing can remind people of the ocean, some have referred to it as ‘ocean breath.’
In this IN, the vocal sounds are replaced by the breath, producing a resonance akin to the vibration of the great universe. The resonance and rhythm of the breathing are not only beautiful, but also have strong, purifying energy. The practice of the Divinity IN with Calm Breathing contributes to the elevation of humanity’s consciousness, and it works in many other ways.
Due to the specific nature of the breathing method and its synchronization with the movements, the Divinity IN with Calm Breathing is best learned directly from a qualified individual, who can guide you in making this practice as effective as possible.
