Publisher Description

Searching for Breath is a very personal investigation into the essence of our most important bodily function, breathing: how it sustains and lets us thrive – physically, psychologically and spiritually – and how we can manage it to make our lives better.

Every one of us breathes 25,000 times a day; it is intrinsic to life on earth. However, almost everyone takes it for granted and yet this essential bodily process is something we can control. Modern science and ancient traditions have proven that by regulating our breathing we gain control and direction in our lives. Breathing is a superpower hidden in front of our eyes.

Breathwork has become the hot topic in health and wellness over the past few years; it’s featured in many of the world’s most popular health and wellness channels and in the past few years a string of bestselling books have come out around the phenomenon including The New York Times bestselling Breath by James Nestor, the Sunday Times bestselling Wim Hof Method and Dan Brule’s bestselling Just Breathe. 

 Searching for Breath provides a holistic background to breathing: why do we breathe, how do we breathe, how it connects us to the world around us, how it creates the energy our bodies and minds demand, how it affects emotion, how does breathing – and therefore our bodies and minds – adjust to extreme environments. Searching for Breath gives the reader a complete physiological, psychological, historical and spiritual foundation before introducing the myriad of breath systems in use around the world today.

Searching for Breath combines science, history, religion, art and philosophy, and wraps them around events in Lineen’s own life – from high altitude mountaineering in the Himalayas, to free diving off the coast of Australia, to delivering babies in the midst of the Sierra Leone civil war, to ski racing on the World Cup circuit – to create an extremely readable and immersive work that informs and initiates the reader into the journey of breath.
