HOLISTIC HEALING / NEW AGE
Long used by meditators as a way to inner peace, health, and vitality, intentional breathing can also be used as a calming technique when encountering stress, pain, and fear. In Breathing, Michael Sky offers simple breathing exercises that are intended to be experienced as they are read. He discusses breath, the central organizing life force, as it relates to emotional responses, lifetime habits, sleep, childbirth, sexual communication, and higher consciousness.
“Many cultures throughout history have placed great emphasis on the practice of breathing--and they were right to do so! At least for modern people, ‘good breathing’ does not come naturally but needs to be learned. This book . . .can improve your health, extend your life, even make for better sex. Read, practice, and benefit.”
--Robert Masters, Ph.D., author of Listening to the Body, teacher of neural and sensory re-education
“Michael Sky’s new book Breathing is a real gem! In clear, simple terms he demystifies many of the more esoteric and secret teachings about breath and prana . . . .This book is an excellent guide for those seeking to know more about themselves. It is a must for those professionals who work in the body/mind disciplines where breathing is an essential key to health and healing.”
--Michael Alan Morton, Ph.D., president of the American Holistic Health Association
