“The secret to living mindfully. Just don’t breathe a word of it …”
There are a couple of reasons that tempted me into buying the little book, The Art of Breathing. Firstly, the name appealed and also the author has an excellent reputation within the field of mindfulness. I think too, I fell for the look of it, the gorgeous blue cover and the smaller than average size. But the content of the book does not disappoint. In fact there is a light hearted joyfulness to it which is sometimes missing in meditation and mindfulness books. In no way does the joyfulness detract from the underlying message of mindfulness or the different techniques outlined.
Without giving anything away, the opening chapter of this book is breathtaking and drew me in at the outset. Other gifts in this book for me were its conciseness and that it can be opened at any page and you can find what you want because of its ease of reading.
