Breath in Action looks at the significance of breath to human life - not just the simple fact that if we stop breathing, we die, but also the more subtle ways in which our breath interacts with our voice and our being. Written by experts in vocal and holistic practice, the book is divided into four sections: Breath and the Body; Breath and the Mind; Breath and Holistic Practice; Breath and Performance. It offers the latest theories from a variety of disciplines on how we can be taught to breathe better so as to communicate better, act or sing better, feel better, live better. Combining theory with practice, many of the chapters also offer clearly laid out breathing exercises and techniques. Interdisciplinary in its focus, Breath in Action adds to specialist knowledge in the performance field, whilst also offering enlightening information for those interested in therapeutic and healing processes, movement, and voice and speech sciences.

From author Janie DeVos comes a poignant and richly detailed novel set in 1950s North Carolina, where one young woman struggles to save her own life—and finds the strength to truly live it. When Kathryn Cavanaugh steps over the threshold of the Pelham Sanatorium in 1954, she has no idea when, or if, she will ever leave it again. Despite the rise of promising new treatments, Tuberculosis is still feared and often fatal. But twenty-four-year-old Kate has proven her resilience before, leaving her Blue Ridge Mountain home for a very different life in the city with her ambitious attorney husband, Geoffrey. For the sake of her family, especially her young son, she’s determined to get healthy again. The sanatorium is a strange battlefield, with every patient fighting for survival amidst a numbing routine of tests, treatment, and enforced rest. Kate quickly finds camaraderie among the women on her ward—and a growing kinship with fellow patient Philip McAllister. As weeks pass, the hospital’s confines come to offer more independence than Geoffrey’s preoccupation with status ever allowed. And with this surprising new discovery comes the courage to contemplate the choices she has made—and, perhaps, the chance to breathe freely at last…

When I’m underwater, I remember things. Flashes of the day my brother Eddie vanished. My father holding me; my mother missing. And the deeper I dive, the less pain I feel. I can believe my brother isn’t dead, that my family isn’t falling apart. I can forget that it was all my fault. The only trouble is, eventually you have to come up for air.

Nach seinem Schulabschluss verließ der sechzehnjährige Tyson Thompson die Stadt Seafare in Oregon zuversichtlich und mit großen Plänen, musste jedoch bald herausfinden, wie grausam die wirkliche Welt ist. Nun kehrt er nach vier Jahren des Versagens, einem Kampf gegen die Abhängigkeit und mit einer diagnostizierten Panikstörung an die Küste zurück. Sein Bruder Bär und dessen Mann Otter sind davon überzeugt, dass Tyson dort zu sich selbst zurückfinden wird. In der grünen Monstrosität und umgeben von seiner Familie bemüht sich Tyson, die Scherben seines Lebens wieder zusammenzusetzen. Doch nicht lange nach seiner Rückkehr erfolgt die unvermeidliche Konfrontation mit Tysons Kindheitsfreund und erster Liebe Dominic Miller, mit dem er seit seiner Abreise aus Seafare keinerlei Kontakt hatte. Die Begegnung reißt alte Wunden auf, legt neue Geheimnisse offen und macht Tyson klar, dass seine Vergangenheit noch vielschichtiger ist als vermutet. Zwischen vertrauten Gesichtern, neuen Freunden und alten Erinnerungen an die folgenschwere Entscheidung seiner Mutter erkennt Tyson, dass er sich für eine glückliche Zukunft erst mit seiner unglücklichen Vergangenheit auseinandersetzen muss.

A room-full of people see Professor Harrison Peer fall to his death. But there is no body and, possibly, no crime for DS Theo Akande to investigate. Yet as he continues to delve through the polite surface of the Professor's academic world he discovers a disturbingly jealous underbelly. Meanwhile, as Hannah Poole is coming to terms with her late father's secrets and lies, others also have to confront the past. However, it is someone active in today's world who is turning out to be a clear and present danger. Akande merely has to work out who that someone is. This isn't gritty crime, this isn't cosy crime, this isn't police procedural. This is poetic storytelling which peels back the psychological layers to reveal the raw centre. This is the third novel in the #ScarboroughMysteries series by Kate Evans. The first, The Art of the Imperfect, was long-listed for the Crime Writers Association debut dagger in 2015. Kate Evans is a writer of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Her book, Pathways Through Writing Blocks in the Academic Environment, was published by Sense Publishers in 2013. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Sussex University and teaches on the Degree in Creative Writing at the University of Hull, Scarborough campus. She is trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. She loves walking by the sea and afternoon tea. Praise for #ScarboroughMysteries 'The first thing to mention is the writing style is incredibly strong. ... The description through this book is brilliantly constructed so that I really felt completely immersed.' Lizzy, My Little Book Blog 'You can almost taste the salt. Scarborough provides an evocative, windswept setting for this crime novel that touches on various issues and buried secrets that trouble the perpetrators, victims and those investigating. It is character driven and its realism and attention to detail makes a smart, contemporary read that leaves enough unanswered questions about the main characters to fuel the next book in the series.'

Making a living or really living? Really living is an art form. After a few years on this planet, really living seems a bit idealistic. We are more likely to settle for making a living. So what happened? How did our stories end up here? How did we become so disconnected from the life for which we were made? Is there any hope of really living the abundant life Jesus promised? Life on this side of Eden is not what we hoped for. It is not what we were made for. Something is missing. As we abide in Christ, we offer Him our hearts. He, in turn, offers His heart. We point to Him. He points to us. We give Him our pain. He heals and restores us to wholeness. We give our sin. He gives His forgiveness. We give our lives. He gives His life. We breathe out ourselves and inhale His presence, a fluid motion of abiding. This is the abundant life. This is the art of breathing. Gina Roes is a professional counselor, writer, and national speaker. She has led conferences, retreats and workshops on such topics as depression, boundaries, recovery from trauma, and spiritual formation. Gina lives in Savannah, Georgia with her dog, Ellie.
