What is "1000 Breaths"

On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

What started as the 1000 Breaths fundraiser event has become a movement for the freedom of us all. This blog expands now to encompass all the good works being done in the name of "freedom for all" as heard on the "FREEDOM FOR ALL" Internet Radio show.

We were honored to have the legendary Dr. Bernie S. Siegel, MD, on the show Freedom For All. He spoke on the connection between emotional and mental well-being with physical health. A true pioneer, Dr. Siegel was one of the first to break with modern mainstream medicine with holistic principles. Dr. Siegel retired from general and pediatric surgical practice in 1989 and has since dedicated himself to humanizing the medical establishment’s approach to patients and empowering patients to induce their own healing. His newest book is called "The Art of Healing: Uncovering Your Inner Wisdom and Potential for Self-Healing." He shared several stories from that book on today's show. A sought-after speaker on patient and care-giver issues, Dr. Siegel lives in Woodbridge, Connecticut. Website:  www.BernieSiegelmd.com
