"The normal breath merely sustains us. The extraordinary breath fulfills us. Breathing. Make every breath count," says co-author Cheryl Lynne Rubbo.

In Extraordinary Breath, popular teachers and first-time authors Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo draw on methods of breath control developed by ancient masters in India and China to guide readers on an extraordinary journey to greater health and peace of mind.
"As God breathed life into Adam through his nostrils, you may do the same for yourself. When you are ready for the inspiration of your mind, body and spirit read this book and follow the path it will teach you to navigate," says Bernie Siegel, MD, author of 365 Prescriptions for the Soul and 101 Exercises for the Soul.

In this short, colorful and profound book the Rubbos show how to use these ancient techniques to boost physical, emotional and spiritual health, and bring a sense of joy back into our world. Extraordinary Breath helps readers to increase their health, prolong their life, connect with the divine, reach levels of ecstasy and begin to understand the deeper mysteries of life.

"The world's greatest wisdom traditions integrate the breath to achieve the highest levels of enlightenment," says co-author Donald Rubbo.

The transformative benefits of deep breathing have been known for centuries, in countless cultures and in profound spiritual practices, and now these amazing benefits, and more, are just a breath away as co-authors Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo introduce Extraordinary Breath, an effective system of breathwork designed to shift the paradigm of health, healing and global peace for the benefit of all.

"Sitting still and attending the breath are mankind's oldest spiritual practices. Cheryl Lynne and Donald Rubbo are both masters of this ancient tradition as it is expressed in meditation, Shaolin, and Qigong. Without fanfare and self-promotion, they have been teaching, healing, and actively building a community in Northern California as more and more people have come to recognize the deep spiritual grounding of this extraordinary couple," says Peter Coyote (Hosho Jishi) writer/actor. "Their book is a straightforward primer on the fundamentals of the breath. As profound as it appears simple, it offers beginners and experienced practitioners a series of practices to improve their health, sense of joy and contentment, and their ability to heal the world around them. I have the deepest respect for both of them, so it is not surprising that I love and respect this useful book."

The Rubbos explain how the simple act of taking a long, deep breath helps to create profound, positive changes in the brain structure; changes that can permanently "re-wire" our brains to help us live in a state of "limitless potential."

Extraordinary Breath shows us how to use the power of our breath to find happiness and joy within.
