Breathing through 'dahnjeon(s)' is a way of breathing that can be found in many different Asian modes of training. The particular exercise called 'Dahnjeon Breathing' found at the end of this chapter is an exercise adapted from my experiences of long-term, rigorous study of several Asian practices. Regular practice with these exercises will help you create efficient muscular use as the foundation for good breath and voice production. Long-term rigorous practice will help you cultivate ki (energy), which will give your sound a sense of strength beyond muscular strength. These exercises will also provide the foundation for creating a sense of being in the here and now and help create the necessary preparation for drawing in your listener and sustaining communication.
