More About Transformational Breath®
and Breath Rising


Transformational Breath® is a powerful self-healing technique that helps us breathe more deeply using the entire respiratory system. With a fully connected breath we can encourage physical, mental and spiritual restoration.

Visit the Transformational Breath® website to learn more.

How does it work?

The life altering impacts of Transformational Breath® are based on the universal principle of entrainment which simply states that a lower vibrational pattern can permanently be changed by coming in contact with a higher vibrational energy source. The breathing pattern used in Transformational Breath® practice creates a higher frequency field and entrains (changes) the lower frequency patterns stored at the cellular level such as negative thinking, trauma or pain. That is why you feel lighter and clearer after being bathed your in own beautiful breath!  This impact can be felt even after one session! Are you ready to try it??

    More about Kim Rager, Owner of Breath Rising

    put picture of Kim here

    I am a deeply spiritual person who has made healing and fostering my connection to myself and to God my lifelong journey.

    Not unlike many of us, I have struggled with depression, anxiety, negative thinking, addictions and repressed memories, I understand the journey. Loss of self has been my greatest hurdle.

    On my own path, I have experienced many healing modalities including talk therapy, women's groups, meditation, The Work of Byron Katie, Reiki, AA, Alanon and Woman Within. I have truly lived my own healing journey and I'm now compelled to share this powerful work with others. I bring a deep empathy and compassion to this work and to her clients. Along with my certification in Transformational Breath® and advanced training in several other healing modalities, I hold a BA in Religion and am a Certified Archetypal Consultant.

    My vision for Breath Rising is to work with individual clients to share the self-healing power of breathwork and also to build a community of Transformational Breath® teachers and students in the Chicagoland area. All of this along with staying connected and involved in the lives of my 4 children and their spouses, 7 grandchildren, and husband of 39 years!


    What is this work to me? It is a way of going inside. The breath takes me into the Mystery that is Me. And there I find my connection to the Greater Mystery.

    The breath helps me to be aware: of myself, my body, my feelings, what I’m holding onto, what needs to be released, and what wants to be created. The breath connects me to my deep inner essence and in that deeper part of me I have insight.

    I have experienced deep transformation and release thru my practice of Transformation Breath®. And now, thru working with others and teaching them, I feel as if I’ve found my calling. I love working with a client and seeing them transform into a more centered, congruent, loving person.

    I Love What I Do. It is sacred work for me to be able to enter “that space” with people and watch deep transformation occur.
