Your breath is a gateway to the vastness of the universe—and the path to your highest fulfillment. This is the premise behind Your Breathing Body, a landmark two-volume breathwork curriculum from esteemed meditation teacher and Tibetan Buddhist scholar Reggie Ray.

Volume One presents a 10-CD course with the beginner in mind. Blending somatic practices and breathing techniques from cultures and traditions around the world, Reggie gives you a practice-focused program that will show you how to “fathom your breath to its full depths” for physical healing, emotional balance, and, ultimately, the direct experience of who you are and where you fit in the cosmos.

Essential Listening for any Meditator Review by Scott

I've worked with this program over and over for several years now, it really is the gift that keeps on giving. Reggie is impeccable in creating an accessible program of meditation that will help everyone.

For total beginners it's the best first step you could have, and for seasoned meditators there's a lot to be gained in the somatic connection Reggie unfolds with his guidance.

Hope you enjoy!

I wish there were exercises Review by Seeker

The sample needs to have an example of the exercises not just education

Highly transformative! Review by Charlene

I have just completed this program and I am really impressed by how quickly and deeply all the protocols proposed here can help us to touch our innermost being.

Reginald Ray is an incredible meditation teacher. His explanations are always very precise and clear, which helps you to understand exactly how and why you are doing the practices that he proposes.

His instructions during the guided meditation also really help you to get into the relaxation and meditation moods.

I have tried a lot of guided meditation programs, and this one is really the best one of all. Very concrete and simple to put into practice, but very profound and rich at the same time.

Definitely worth exploring!!!

Love it! Review by Metta

I have only just recently been gifted Vol. 1 & 2 of Your Breathing Body, along with the book Touching Enlightenment and I am very grateful. First, for the synchronicity - it's time and place; and then the merits of having such a calm, down to earth, mentoring voice, cheering on what my heart has already been bringing me through to - wow!
My main commitment has been vipassana meditation for a number of years now and there have insights and questions that keep knocking that I feel are beginning to be answered in these teachings...
If you are interested in these teachings and would like more samples - do check out www.dharmaocean.org/ for a wealth of free introductory lessons and podcasts.

I am so impressed that yesterday I bought all his other books in iBook version. and will be purchasing here the Mahamudra for the Modern World.. As I work toward the possibility of taking courses at Dharma Ocean next year. Gratitude & Metta

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by bananacat

At first, it took me awhile to get into this album. It felt very full of information. That's also the reason it is so stupendous. It is really chock-full of rare, good information. Reggie is a phenomenal teacher. I am going to get the 2nd album.

The reason it's rare is that he goes into very specific areas of the body, for when we're in different situations. I love Reggie's teachings in general because of the specificities. He doesn't teach you to relax. He delves into the complexities and universalities of being human, and the gamut is infinite, according to him. It gave me a newfound respect for my body which complicates my life, because it forces me to re-prioritize. That's not an easy thing to do, but ultimately the best decision.

I know there's something special about him, but I don't know what. I can just say that he's a fierce queen (in street vernacular). This is one to relisten over & over again.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Margaret H

These teachings and practices are life-changing. Reggie Ray leads the listener though somatic practices that allow deep relaxation of the body and open the consciousness into deep connection with true nature. Highly recommended!

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Alayne D

I am currently working my way through the first set of discs for "Your Breathing Body." The voice of Reginald Ray is very soothing and relaxing. You are given information/background on the meditations for a particular disc, and then you are guided though the meditations.
These discs are very helpful since I don't know any mediation instructors and the nearest Buddhist center of any kind is an hour away from me.
I feel very relaxed, present in my body an in touch with the earth.

An Incredible Body of Work from One of The Most Authentic Beings that I have ever met....

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Katherine Katsenis

When I listen to Reggie it brings me to tears; it is so open and so true. I cannot say enough about this program (part 1). As a total beginner (granted more than ready to dive in), it helped a ton. Meditation is not easy and you have to stick with it. Let me say that again: you have to stick with it! Reggie allays all fears and inhibitions you may have. The CD itself is a religious experience, not to mention the places you go.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by kate G

Put simply - just the best audio books I've ever bought - and I have quite a few! The guided practices enabled me to have a deeper meditation experience than before. The teachings are clear and filled with insight. Just cannot recommend these highly enough - why aren't there ten stars?

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Arnie A

He's brilliant. I can spend endless time on the pillow at a sangha or retreat, but the simplicity with which Reginald Ray imparts the wisdom is priceless.

I am methodically going through all of the CD downloads, using the recordings as dharma talks before or after my daily sitting. There's that 'coming home' feeling to them.

I happen to currently also be reading through his book - Touching Enlightenment', so I'm getting a full frontal on this one.

Good stuff! Provocative elements and AHA moments.

Thanks so very much,

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Linda Reneau

My son bought this set and he and I have passed Vol. 1 & 2 back and forth as we review them for the second and third times... and will continue to do so for some months to come. Excellent exercises. These breathing practices are enhancing my perspective and adding to my main practice. I knew some of the exercises but his transmission (the energy that comes with the instructions---I believe a tape or CD or any recording could be described as a link to the person's consciousness and that this is how transmission occurs nonlocally in online/CD courses---well, his transmission is very good! This is a great course. I am also going to be taking the Mahamudra course. Thank you, Reggie Ray!

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Kevagne Kalisch

I'm one of those people who can sit and sit and all that happens is that I notice my thoughts and then I struggle with noticing my thoughts. After I downloaded Your Breathing Body, and began to listen to Reggie's teachings and practice his guided meditations, it was like a light just turned on inside me and meditation took on a whole new meaning and feeling. I had previously thought something was wrong with me because I was expecting something to happen. Now I know there was nothing wrong, I just wasn't getting the right guidance. Something is definitely happening. My deepest gratitude to you Reggie for helping me to transform my life.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Beryl Mallinson

I find the talks long and difficult to stay present with and concentrated on and will re listen and take them in smaller bits. I think this has something to do with listening on my own. The actual instructions and meditations I find very useful and deep. I have not started Volume 2.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Stanley L. Rose

I was looking for more teachings and fewer exercises. Perhaps I should have ordered the second set rather than the first. I found the instruction for the breathing exercises detailed too much as in how to sit and on what etc.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by JANE KARP

I love Reggie's teachings. He is always clear, human, and extremely interesting.

Wonderful guided meditations.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Shawn Kirby

This course is an excellent companion to Reggie's new book and to his approach to meditating with the body. The title might lead one to believe that this is a course on Tibetan pranayama, but this is actually a profound meditation system.
The practices contained herein my seem simple but they are, nonetheless POWERFUL. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in spiritual growth, healing past trauam (karma), and becoming an authentic human being regardless of your spiritual orientation or path. I give it the highest possible rating. Well done.

Review for Your Breathing Body Vol. 1 Review by Rich Mertes

I've wondered why no one has reviewed these CD's yet. I think that Reggie and his students (of which I am not formally one) have a lot of integrity and are holding off from publicly praising their own work/teacher. So...allow me. I cherish these CD's. Part of me is tempted to call this work a "Fourth Turning of the Wheel," but I know that is really just looking at the first three "turnings (especially the third)" through different lenses in order to allow for the full embodiment of the wisdom already buried in these teachings. This bridging of buddhist philosophy and sensitivity to the somatic-experiential has been--for me, anyway--the perfect medicine. Of course I cannot say how it would resonate with anyone else.

First I have listened to the 20 CD's (10 in volume #1 and 10 in Volume #2) sequentially, over the course of three weeks, in the evening after work as kind of a home retreat. Each one has a dharma talk and then a guided exercise. I enjoyed doing this just to get the lay of the land. Now I am going back and working with them more slowly and deeply. Certain exercises have jumped out as being particularly fruitful for me.

I have worked with a lot of body/mind techniques and philosophies...straight Zen and Vipassana meditation, Taoist meditation and chi kung, shamanic journeying, etc.--and have benefitted greatly from all of them. But, Reggie seems to really get where a lot of westerners are now--that is, very good at thinking about their bodies, but not very good at feeling them. I'm coming to realize how much that describes me as well, and am having pretty profound results using the techniques he offers. His book, Touching Enlightenment, has also become a source of many insights and inspirations for me.

To sum up, I would say that I think Reggie has described a kind of "blind spot" in the spiritual lives of many contemporary practitioners--mainly about the body being a neglected yet essential starting point for the cultivation of awareness of any kind. Buddhist tradition is by no means mum about this blind spot, it's just that many people have not looked at it with the lenses that would allow them to truly mine the riches that are available there. Reggie goes straight to this place, and I can only say that it resonates with me and that I have benefitted from it greatly. I am deeply grateful and obviously would recommend it highly to others.
