I conceived the idea for “Stop Breathe Let Go” after I attended my first breathwork class in Atlanta. I didn’t know what to expect from breath work, but I assumed it was in the same family as meditation, so I gave it a shot. By the end of the class I felt as light as a feather. My mind was clear and I was feeling the love. At this point, I was curious to try other practices that used the breath as an anchor to connect with my true feelings. Something that helps us stop, breathe, and let go. Ding, ding, ding!
To keep the production simple, I used an iPhone and collaborated with a talented animator. The film screened at the Awareness and REEL Recovery Film Festivals in 2018 and remains popular in the mindfulness communities.
