Home Wisdom Two Steps Over Explained

Breathing Science & Wisdom Meditations for a Better Life

Align what you think, say, and do to become the person you want to become.

Genuine transformation arises from enhancing our physiology and changing how we think. To do that, the Breath Learning Center integrates two timeless practices, breathing and wisdom meditations, to facilitate holistic growth and fulfillment.

Step 1: Breath Practices

Change Your Physiology, Change Your Life

“Breath practices can restore your sense of being genuinely who you are, of knowing what you feel, of recognizing what others feel, and of being able to experience deep and meaningful connections with people, with your values, and with all that is.”

— Richard Brown, MD, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD

It all begins with your breath. Through slow breathing practices, you gain direct access to your nervous system and mind, helping you:

  • Downregulate your body for deep relaxation
  • Slow your brainwaves to enhance focus and clarity
  • Cultivate a joyful and positive mindset grounded in reality
  • Experience less stress, more energy, and a renewed perspective on life

There are no rigid guidelines in the Learning Center. I offer several pre-recorded guided exercises, but it’s up to you to find the best practice(s) for you. Daily practice is critical and the first step toward self-realization and personal fulfillment.

Step 2: Wisdom Meditations

Align Your Thoughts with Your Best Self for Lasting Change

“Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.”

-The Buddha

True transformation goes beyond just physiology, though. We must also change how we think. Our brief, 30-second daily Wisdom Meditations encourage introspection and alignment. We explore timeless wisdom from renowned teachers and experts, such as:

  • Mahatma Gandhi
  • Gladys McGarey, MD
  • Dr. Bob Rotella
  • Thich Nhat Hanh
  • David Goggins
  • The Buddha
  • Rick Rubin
  • Patrick McKeown
  • Amishi Jha, Ph.D.
  • Eknath Easwaran
  • Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D.
  • Haemin Sunim
  • Ronald Siegel, Psy.D.
  • And many, many more.

Each daily message plants a seed of wisdom in your heart and mind, nurturing values that align your words and actions with your highest self.

Bonus: Workshops for Deeper Learning

Experience meaningful change with the Learning Center’s quarterly workshops. These engaging sessions, lasting 1-2 hours, consolidate expert knowledge on specific topics, empowering you to transform your life at your convenience.

What Members Are Saying

I start my day by reading compelling quotes and reflections in my inbox each morning – which often move the trajectory of my day positively. Nick is a scientist who culls through much information and shares the pearls on the learning portal. He summarizes the latest research in written and audio summaries that are easy to understand. This saves me a ton of time and enables me to stay up-to-date with cutting-edge research on topics I am passionate about in my work as a psychiatrist, bringing these practices to my patients and colleagues. The Breath Learning Center website is bookmarked and at the top of my browser window for easy access. I highly recommend The Breath Learning Center to everyone interested in living more fully.

Colleen Loehr, MD

Nick’s learning center is fantastic. It is tough to stay up on all the research coming out in the breath space, which is why I enjoy receiving Nick’s 411s. Not only does it cover clinical research, but the latest books are included, too. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more.
