Specific breathing exercises that are believed to allow the individual to re-experience past memories, release suppressed feelings within, and even bring about healing. This form of therapy is akin to yoga, and is a New Age concept that should not be practiced by Christians.

It stands in contrast to rebirth (being born again) as experienced by Christians at salvation.
