Abstract | Full Text

When the Spaceousness of the breathless breath opens, who-ness can be felt as uncontained and unbound. Who-ness is experiential openness…openness prior to mind. Dasein to use Heideggarian language. Most often there is this intertwining of breath and respiration, intertwining of breath and qi, intertwining of breath and shakti, breath and primordial energy. Respiration inspires us and respirates us. Utimately, this energy of respiration is light. Illumination is forming forms of light as energy and the light becoming energy becoming respiration. Tantra is intimately connected to this subtle phenomena of respiration.
