Dear IBF members and IBF friends,
As we come to completion of the year 2014, we also enter a quite exciting time in IBF. After 21 years of building up a solid base for our organisation, bringing the Global Inspiration Conference around the globe, uniting and inspiring people using conscious breathing, IBF is ready to grow to another level.
IBF has taken the challenge offered two years ago by Julie Gerland to work on the application to the Consultative Status with ECOSOC, United Nations, as you will read in this newsletter. Although IBF will carry the flag, this goes beyond IBF itself: this is for the whole breathwork community and for all breathers. This implies growing: on the one hand, joining forces and partnering with international organisations that have complementary values and vision to IBF, on the other hand, increasing our membership, including stronger benefits for the breathwork professionals. This is a journey and we thank those of you participating and supporting us.
In this newsletter, we inaugurate the translation projects of news and material in the main IBF languages, thanks to our new volunteer team of translators.
Looking forward to have you joining us on our UN project venture.
