Core faculty member Brad Lichtenstein lays bare the powerful connection between our breath and our wellness.

Breathing offers a powerful path to wellness, says Brad Lichtenstein, ND, BCB. Your breathing can make you tense and guarded — or it can make you open, attentive and awake to the world. It can make you ready to be inspired (from the same root as respirate).

Dr. Lichtenstein demonstrated this in a remarkable TEDx Seattle talk, drawing on his personal journey, his teaching at Bastyr University and his work leading guided meditations for hospice patients.

"I came into health care because I was interested in one question alone: How do you want to live?" he says.
