BREATH: THE NEW SCIENCE OF A LOST ART
by James Nestor.
Instant New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, and Sunday Times (UK) bestseller. A Best Book of 2020 by the Washington Post, Parade, NPR.org, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
There is nothing more essential to our health and wellbeing than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.
The answers aren't found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo, Brazil. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test longheld beliefs about how we breathe.
You will never breathe the same again!
We will get together on Monday 8th February at 8pm via Zoom
to chat and share our takeaways, inspirations and questions.
