When the body relaxes and breathing comes in the region of the heart, peace comes.
It is said that the secret of healing many a disease lies in breathing. Over the centuries, various schools have developed countless breathing techniques.
The Sufi tradition also works with breathing both to strengthen the body and to touch the soul. Sufism uses five elements: earth, water, fire, air and the so-called fifth element, ether or love, which is the most subtle and at the same time the essence of all elements. Various techniques combining those five elements and the Divine Names influence body, soul and spirit.
