Richie Bostock (The Breath Guy) is a man on a mission. He wants to change the way we think about the breath. And he might just do it. On his way to becoming The Breath Guy, Richie survives an early brush with depression, embarks on a breathwork odyssey across 5 continents, treks with The Ice Man, and journeys inwards towards wholeness. With him we explore the mind-blowing science of breathwork, rewiring the nervous system, hacking into the immune system, and opening the lid of consciousness. We discuss some startling similarities with the mystical experience of psychedelics and meditation, the emotional experience of appearing on national TV, speaking in front of large crowds, making an app, writing his first book, and Richie's passion to make breathwork accessible to all.
