After Dark Online: Breathe Deep

Free online event: Join via YouTube or Facebook
It happens around 15 times a minute, regularly and rhythmically. You may not even notice it—but if it stopped, you definitely would. Tonight, we turn our attention to human breath. Find out how human breathing has changed over an extended period of time, through both physical and external factors, and how bringing attention to your breath can restore health while cultivating calm and empathy.
