The Power of Breath: Transforming Lives with Moonbird’s Stefanie Broes

In this episode of the Kintsugi Podcast, host Michael O’Brien sits down with Stefanie Broes, co-founder of Moonbird, a company that develops products to help people use their breath as a tool for better mental health and well-being. Stefanie shares her personal journey with breathwork, the inspiration behind creating Moonbird, and her vision for making a lasting impact on the world.

Key Quotes:

  • “Meditation is not an exercise, but for me, it’s some sort of philosophy. It’s a way that you behave and through which you approach the world.” 
  • “I believe that these physical tools where you literally don’t have to think or follow or do anything anymore, you just hold on and you breathe with it, can be very useful as well.” 
  • “If we all have that awareness and would portray that philosophy, the world would be a better place and we would all behave much nicer towards each other.” 

Key Takeaways:

  1. Breathwork is a powerful tool for regulating the nervous system and promoting mental well-being, especially for those who struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, or hyperventilation.
  2. Physical tools like Moonbird can complement apps and courses, providing a tangible way to focus on breath and reconnect with the body.
  3. Incorporating mindfulness and breathwork into daily life can lead to positive changes in behavior, interactions, and overall well-being.
  4. Creating something that has a lasting impact beyond one’s lifespan is a meaningful goal and a measure of success.

In this engaging conversation, Michael and Stefanie explore the importance of human connection, the role of coaching and guidance in mindfulness practices, and the potential for collaboration among like-minded individuals and organizations. They also share personal stories of growth, resilience, and finding purpose in the face of challenges.

Whether you’re new to breathwork or a seasoned practitioner, this episode offers valuable insights and inspiration for using the power of breath to create positive change in your life and the world around you.
