The first article in a series of four on meditations about purification by fire, water, earth, and air by Prem Geet.
Reporting from the Inspiration University (USA), founded by Leonard Orr, father of the Rebirthing Breathwork, Prem Geet deepens her meditation practice by combining Osho’s meditations and spiritual purification.
Sitting with the fire is a modern spiritual purification practice with ancient roots, as described by Leonard Orr, master healer and father of Rebirthing Breathwork, an American new age pioneer and teacher of millions. His devotion to simple practices over many years is worthy of study and acceptance by a world longing to quiet and heal itself with the natural energies of fire, water, earth, and conscious breath; the elemental context we live in and are made of, but mostly ignore. The daily practice is to spend time alone with each element as a conscious meditation.
