About This Center

Tony Lo Mastro & Maureen Malone are sources and expressions of Rebirthing in Philadelphia and New York City. We are grateful to be pioneers in Rebirthing Breathwork and have our home as a Center for the focus and expansion of the work.

Rebirthing is learning a relationship with your breath and the power of the breath as a function of the body. Circular or conscious connected breathing is normal for the body and this mechanism often gets suppressed with the emotions and events of the past.

Rebirthing Breathwork (which is circular breathing for approximately an hour) relieves the negative charge in cell memory. Rebirthing sessions with a practitioner aim to facilitate positive change through working with the breath and taking responsibility for thoughts, feelings and actions. The sessions will help to identify birth trauma, family patterns, inherited attitudes and specific negative thoughts. Rebirthers aim to support clients in using the breath to ground themselves safely in their body during emotional, physical releases and spiritual insights. Once the client is comfortable with conscious connected breathing, they are encouraged to use this active breathwork on their own. 

Rebirthing connects us to ourselves and gives an experience of present time. We can observe and make conscious choices from a clearer perspective and feeling of well being.

Rebirthing feels good; rebirthing threatens your suffering. When people come to rebirthers, something inside of them is ready to heal and let their burden down in reference to long standing issues from the past. An added benefit of conscious connected breathing is that the increased oxygenation contributes to the release of stress and an experience of more health and vitality.

The Philadelphia and New York Rebirthing Center offer seminars, trainings, community, and available Rebirthing Breathworkers in your area. There are many rebirthers nationally and internationally. If your curiosity is piqued or your body says yes, consider giving yourself the experience of Rebirthing (conscious connected breathing).

You have no need to travel anywhere. journey within yourself, enter a mine of rubies, and bathe in the splendor of your own Light. ~Rumi
