Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Roth spirals around the image of God's breath as silence, thought, speech, and action, and upon our own breath of life, letting this image lead the reader to truly embodied prayer in the midst of ordinary life. An Episcopal priest, musician, and dancer, Roth takes the reader from proper physical breathing to finding space for psychological and spiritual breath while encouraging contemplative, reflective, and verbal prayer supported by action. Questions for reflection and exercises make this a book that goes from reading about prayer to actual prayer in many forms.
