Born into a turbulent and dysfunctional family-and surrounded by adults who were regularly using marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, heroin and crystal meth-Nick Terry TNT bounced around the Pacific Northwest throughout the 1980s, going to 13 different schools before being expelled in 10th grade.
By his teens, Nick had entered a life of addiction and crime and was desperate to escape before ending up dead or in prison. To avoid pending legal charges, Nick fled to Hawaii where he became a father-but his unchecked drug use continued to eat away at his life and family. After multiple attempts at sobriety through traditional treatment and 12-Step recovery, Nick found success through full surrender and commitment to the process-but after four years of sobriety, he hit a wall. A breakthrough came when he discovered breathwork, which he came to believe is the missing piece of the recovery puzzle.
In Breath of Life: Finding Long-Term Recovery with Breathwork and Stepwork, Nick shares how he transformed from wayward addict to breathwork and recovery life coach, and offers his holistic, much-needed perspective on how others can do the same.
In homage to the Big Book of AA, Breath of Life is divided into sections explaining:
• Nick's harrowing, decades-long battle with addiction and what turned it around
• 8 spiritual principles of lasting recovery blending holistic teachings and traditional stepwork
• A beginner's approach to breathwork and morning routines (used by Nick himself)
• Firsthand stories from recovering addicts who have benefitted from Nick's approach
• A breathwork appendix with conscious breathing, cyclical sighing and Breath of Life exercises (and more)
In the end, Breath of Life draws on 12-Step teachings, ancient spiritual wisdom, modern science and Nick's raw life experience to forge an effective and holistic new recovery path. The result is a genre-defying, holistic recovery handbook that synthesizes all existing paradigms, all while adding a much needed breath of fresh air.
