Breath Water Sound in Laingsburg

A 4-day Breath Water Sound Workshop was conducted this week, 13-16 September 2022, with 10 staff members from the Laingsburg Municipality’s Technical Department.

It is evident, especially during this post-pandemic period, that people have been very stressed and are unaware that it is actually due to stress that they are experiencing depression, anxiety and violent tendencies. It was wonderful to observe that through the breathing techniques they were able to reduce the stress and gain clarity of mind to recognise negative tendencies.
