Shortlisted for the 2014 T.S. Eliot Prize and the Forward Prize for Best Collection ‘There are lines in All One Breath for instance, that brand themselves into your brain with the fire of painful recognition. And yet it is also part of his genius to be ever alert to beauty, too.’ - Sebastian Barry, a New Statesman Book of the Year In this absorbing, brilliant new collection – his first since Black Cat Bone – John Burnside examines our shared experience of this mortal world: how we are ‘all one breath’ and – with that breath – how we must strive towards the harmony of choir. Recognising that our attitudes to other creatures – human and non-human – cause too much damage and hurt, that ‘we’ve been going at this for years: / a steady delete / of anything that tells us what we are’, these poems celebrate the fleeting, charged moments where, through measured and gracious encounters with other lives, we find our true selves, and bring some brief, insubstantial goodness and beauty into being. He presents the world in a series of still lifes, in tableaux vivants and tableaux morts, in laboratory tests, anatomy lessons, in a Spiegelkabinett where the reflections in the mirrors, distorted as they seem, reveal buried truths. All the images are in some sense self-portraits: all are, in some way, elegies. One of the finest and most celebrated lyric poets at work today, John Burnside is a master of the moment – when the frames of our film seem to slow and stop and a life slips through the gap in between – and each poem here is a perfect, uncanny hymn to humanity, set down ‘to tell the lives of others’.
This lyrical, autobiographical romp takes the reader from the poet's childhood, to combat in WW II, to upstate New York. It is tempting to get caught up in the frank passion, the asperity and gall of these poems, but Harry Staley disrupts such a reading with a wink and a nudge. A masterwork of persona, All One Breath is actually many breaths: the reconstructed Charles McCaffery, the retired, laconic professor Kelly, the lost Uncle Orville and others. At the center is an unstoppable wit and erudition, masked by an exacting, deceptively effortless use of language, of sound and sense. All One Breath is among the few collections of poetry that deserve to be called essential.
Simply, this book is an experience of FREEDOM. FREEDOM of your thoughts - your mind chatter and your life. It is a reflection of self, of truths that are empowering and of thoughts that will support YOU in empowering yourself to be the true beacon of light that you are. We all have this and we all can do this. We just need the courage, trust and have faith to step forward into the brilliance of the unknown of Universal Love and Energy and the complete oneness of ourself.
An exploration of the traditional Japanese three-line poem examines the art form's history and explains how images and moments are captured in seventeen syllables.
One Breath is a gripping and powerful exploration of the strange and fascinating sport of freediving, and of the tragic, untimely death of America's greatest freediver Competitive freediving-a sport built on diving as deep as possible on a single breath-tests the limits of human ability in the most hostile environment on earth. The unique and eclectic breed of individuals who freedive at the highest level regularly dive hundreds of feet below the ocean's surface, reaching such depths that their organs compress, light disappears, and one mistake could kill them. Even among freedivers, few have ever gone as deep as Nicholas Mevoli. A handsome young American with an unmatched talent for the sport, Nick was among freediving's brightest stars. He was also an extraordinary individual, one who rebelled against the vapid and commoditized society around him by relentlessly questing for something more meaningful and authentic, whatever the risks. So when Nick Mevoli arrived at Vertical Blue in 2013, the world's premier freediving competition, he was widely expected to challenge records and continue his meteoric rise to stardom. Instead, before the end of that fateful competition Nick Mevoli had died, a victim of the sport that had made him a star, and the very future of free diving was called into question. With unparalleled access and masterfully crafted prose, One Breath tells his unforgettable story, and of the sport which shaped and ultimately destroyed him.
One Breath is a book of humanistic portraits that span our planet, reminding us of the basic truth that we are all one people, all connected. No matter what ethnicity, nationality, or beliefs we hold, we all partake in the miracle of our first breath at birth, the adventure of life, and the mystery of death. This book journeys through the heart of humanity. Lisa Kristine's portraits introduce us to people of all ages, colors, and creeds, celebrating the human family. As John Sweeney of the United Nations Association of New York has said, "Lisa Kristine's sensitive and beautiful portrayal of isolated and distant peoples helps us to better appreciate the diversity of the world. She captures the sheer beauty of the differences in people and places and allows us to comprehend the shared nature of the human conditions: its hope, its joy and its complexity." With a foreword by National Geographic Fellow Explorer Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey, Ph.D., this collection of powerful images illustrates the universal human experience. One Breath carries us on an inspirational passage through the world and into the hearts of our fellow inhabitants.

"In One Breath the Haiku Exhales a Butterfly, is a book that deviates from the norm, taking the right turn instead of a left turn. Its author, R D McManes, is not your average bear. He is an original. He speaks to his readers in a soft voice that is easy to understand and relate to." -the John Mellencamp of haiku. "In summation, Mr. McManes' book of haiku is a breath of fresh air. I heartily recommend it. It is an enjoyable read, touches the soul and sole, and will leave an indelible imprint on your mind." -Robert D. Wilson, Editor-in-Chief, Simply Haiku and author of Vietnam Ruminations "As the title haiku of his new book implies, R. D. McManes expertly breathes imagery onto the page, generously allowing the reader a peek into the world as he perceives it, a world where something as ordinary as a Kansas sunset or as simple as a cotton field can reveal itself as something more. This is what haiku is all about!" -Erin Harte, Editor, Haikusun, and Haiga Editor, Simply Haiku
Merging Buddhist mindfulness practices with the Twelve Step program, this updated edition of the bestselling recovery guide One Breath at a Time will inspire and enlighten you to live a better, healthier life. Many in recovery turn to the Twelve Steps to overcome their addictions, but struggle with the spiritual program. But what they might not realize is that Buddhist teachings are intrinsically intertwined with the lessons of the Twelve Steps, and offer time-tested methods for addressing the challenges of sobriety. In what is considered the cornerstone of the most significant recovery movement of the 21st century, Kevin Griffin shares his own extraordinary journey to sobriety and how he integrated the Twelve Steps of recovery with Buddhist mindfulness practices. With a new foreword by William Alexander, the author of Ordinary Recovery, One Breath at a Time takes you on a journey through the Steps, examining critical ideas like Powerlessness, Higher Power, and Moral Inventory through the lens of the core concepts of Buddhism—the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, mindfulness, loving-kindness, and more. The result is a book that presents techniques and meditations for finding clarity and awareness in your life, just as it has for thousands of addicts and alcoholics.
For ages, most of humanity has placed “life” and “death” at two ends of the existential spectrum – favoring one, fearing the other and continuously floundering between the two. Only when someone who has consciously traversed between both life and death offers to articulate some aspects of it, does humanity get a glimpse of what lies beyond the horizon of its normal perception. With his extraordinary insights, coming from a profound inner experience, Sadhguru reveals that life and death are, in fact, two sides of the same coin. It is only by embracing both that we can break the shackles of our selfmade struggles and be set free. In his own words, he says: “Death is a cosmic joke. If you get the joke, when you fall on the other side, it will be wonderful. If you don’t get the joke, when you are here you fear the other side, and when the other side comes, you just don’t know what it is about. If death becomes a laughing matter in your life, life becomes an utterly effortless process – there is no need to restrain yourself in the process of life; you can live your life absolutely, totally.” “The distance between your life and death is just one breath, isn’t it?” – Sadhguru
Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family with this emotionally heartwarming story about true love and family that will inspire you to believe in the impossible even while the world is falling apart. International Bestselling Author Ava Miles’ family series, The Merriams, returns for its finale with two long-lost lovers fighting for a second chance despite the odds—with everyone’s favorite matchmakers along to pave their way. Quinn recognized Francesca Maroun as his soulmate the moment he met her in grad school. Of course he did. The Merriams always recognize their soulmates instantly. It just never occurred to him that world events could drive them apart so they wouldn't end up together. Knowing there was no one else for him, Quinn devoted himself to the family business instead. Since he’s taken the reins of the troubled company, he doesn't have the time to dwell on Francesca—much. But with all his siblings falling in love and marrying, the emptiness of his life stretches before him, lonely and bleak. But when world events take a turn again, Quinn knows it's now or never. Given that Francesca has become one of the most sought-after business consultants for the Fortune 500, he contacts her to come help him steer Merriams Enterprises clear of disaster. When Quinn calls her about working with him to right his business, Francesca knows she should say no. She prides herself on what she's built, and working with Quinn offers temptations she doesn't want to feel. But she’s never healed from their shattering break-up, and perhaps this is the opportunity for closure. It's time to move on. What better way than proving to herself that they're over, once and for all? Except events take a dark turn and threaten to destroy everything they’ve both worked so hard for. Even with the Merriam family at his back (and the matchmaking trio he can always count) he’s not sure there's a solution in sight—for Merriam Enterprises or Francesca and him.

We breathe without thinking about it—but those life-giving breaths are actively at the heart of everything that we do, and the single common denominator underlying every dimension of our being. The power of breath goes beyond the need for oxygen; conscious breathing techniques can accelerate healing, improve cognitive skills, enhance sex and intimacy, intensify meditation, boost athletic performance, and open our receptivity to greater spiritual awareness. Perfect Breathing teaches us how to become conscious of that all-important breath, to recognize those situations where we need to breathe most efficiently, and to remember to take full, cleansing, powerful breaths every moment of the day. Each section contains valuable information that applies to significant areas of your life—your health, mind and emotions, physical performance, and spirituality—so you’ll grasp the scope, breadth, and influence of breathing on each one. The techniques are all relatively simple to master; with just a few minutes a day and this easy-to-follow program, you’ll slowly integrate conscious breathing into your life and routine. Backed by compelling science and evidence from people for whom breathing is central (astronauts, fighter pilots, Olympic athletes, adventurers, performing artists, and others), and complete with exercises that address specific problems, Perfect Breathing is an important book in the science of breathing and a critical link to living longer, healthier, more robust lives.
