Breathe is for anyone experiencing any level of grief, anxiety, bereavement, regret, sorrow, disappointment, and depression. Through true stories and biblical principles, and clinical pastoral techniques, the listener will identify with the normalcy of spiritual pain - mental, emotional, and psychological pain such as regret, guilt, and heartache. As the steps in this volume are practiced repeatedly and as needed, the listener will learn to demonstrate self-care and how to manage spiritual pain, developing safe grieving practices.

It will guide the listener into identifying pain with cathartic non-pharmacological methodologies of relief and comfort that proved beneficial to the thousands of families and patients this writer has supported. Everyone suffers from some level of grief and will benefit from using the coping strategies found in this literature. Additionally, it will assist them in dismissing forgiveness and guilt. They will also learn of the body's innate mechanisms that are as powerful and comforting as medicine. Breathe will be useful for grief spanning from minor levels of irritation to crisis and trauma.

For convenience, Breathe is set as a workbook and journal in one volume. This is an excellent tool for grief and bereavement support groups, church grief study groups, and a pastoral leadership guide to walking with grief.

The content of this book was largely compiled in an action research project. Outcomes and cycles of this research were also the content of my doctoral dissertation. Peer-reviewed and submitted to scholarly review, this piece has brought innovative change to the profession of chaplaincy I provided in, police settings, hospital settings, and hospice settings. Now extended to the public in this seemingly endless age of global despair.

Breathe is not suggested or advised to be a substitute for physicians or psychologists' professional help. It is an aid that offers additional steps toward comfort and initial steps to those in immediate need of consolation.
