Leonard D Orr Foundation

Starting in the 1970s, Leonard Orr was a thought leader and change agent. He is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in popularizing breathwork as a healing modality. He left us a large legacy in his writings and teachings. We are working to first preserve, and then disseminate all of his works.
