WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “More powerful and moving than anything [Tyler] has done.” —Los Angeles Times Unfolding over the course of a single emotionally fraught day, this stunning novel encompasses a lifetime of dreams, regrets and reckonings. Maggie and Ira Moran are on a road trip from Baltimore, Maryland to Deer Lick, Pennsylvania to attend the funeral of a friend. Along the way, they reflect on the state of their marriage, its trials and its triumphs—through their quarrels, their routines, and their ability to tolerate each other’s faults with patience and affection. Where Maggie is quirky, lovable and mischievous, Ira is practical, methodical and mired in reason. What begins as a day trip becomes a revelatory and unexpected journey, as Ira and Maggie rediscover the strength of their bond and the joy of having somebody with whom to share the ride, bumps and all. Regarded by many as Tyler’s seminal work, Breathing Lessons celebrates the small miracles and magic of truly knowing someone, and evokes Jane Austen, Emma Straub, and other masters of the literary marriage.

A bold and explicit debut novel by one of the most visceral new voices in gay fiction. Breathing Lessons is the story of Henry Moss, a homosexual everyman whose life knows none of the limitations or abuses his predecessors experienced. When a teenaged Henry came out to his mother, she worried only that he’d be lonely. At the time, he thought her concerns were old-fashioned. Two decades later, he’s had supportive family and friends, he’s well-liked by the athletes who train with him, trusted in his professional life, parties whenever he pleases, and performs all manner of sexual acts with whomever he wants. But as he gets older and, increasingly, the men he sleeps with are married, Henry finds that his mother may have been right. Can he find the lasting intimacy he craves in his life amidst the equal-opportunity freedom afforded by his generation’s openness? Learning to navigate between the two is as delicate as learning to breathe again.

This first book of published poetry, My Life So Far: Breathing Lessons, by Sally L. Fulton invites you to enter intimately into her life and shows the reader, with clear and lyrical imagery, how she finds meaning in each moment. Her life is a microcosm of the suffering and transformation that everyone faces. That transformation, for this writer, is found in nature, and in the Buddhist principal which Thich Nhat Hanh calls "interbeing," the knowledge based on both spiritual and physical understanding that we are all a part of something greater that unifies us. Included in this artistic volume are several images of her paintings, each as rich and diverse as her poems. These paintings reflect the beauty of what the painter sees with her eyes as well as what she encounters in the unexpected nature of the spontaneous. It is through both language as well as through painting that she has come to find potent avenues toward an expression of her own truth.

FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION: Yoga opens the doorway between our outer and inner reality, leading us to Oneness and Joy in all aspects of life. Our nervous system is the doorway... Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP), Volume 2 refines and enhances the core practices presented in the first volume, and provides plain English instructions for new practices designed to cultivate middle and end stage development on the path of human spiritual transformation. Additional practices include advanced applications of samyama, diet, shatkarmas, amaroli, non-dual self-inquiry, bhakti and karma yoga, and a variety of approaches for building and managing a progressive and stable practice routine. Volume 2 does not stand alone, relying on the first volume as a foundation, and building on it. There are nearly 200 additional lessons here for assisting the serious practitioner to realize a life filled with abiding inner silence, ecstatic bliss, outpouring divine love, and unity. What readers are saying as they make use of the AYP lessons: "It's almost a science. You do the practices and progress as predicted." - MA "As a physician, it is moving to see the effects on medical conditions." - KC "I will be adding AYP to my class offerings to cover the whole of yoga." - MR "Far above and beyond all other yoga writings I have encountered." - KG "A growing inquiry in stillness has taken me to new levels." - CL "Especially useful for stabilizing my kundalini awakening." - SR "The tantra techniques bring great pleasure into our lives." - ZA "This approach includes a deep tolerance of other paths." - AN "Thank you for being the one who said: The guru is in you!" - KK For more reader feedback, see the last section in the book.

The charismatic form of healing called qigong, based on meditative breathing exercises, has achieved enormous popularity in China during the last two decades. Qigong served a critical social organizational function, as practitioners formed new informal networks, sometimes on an international scale, at a time when China was shifting from state-subsidized medical care to for-profit market medicine. The emergence of new psychological states deemed to be deviant led the Chinese state to "medicalize" certain forms while championing scientific versions of qigong. By contrast, qigong continues to be promoted outside China as a traditional healing practice. Breathing Spaces brings to life the narratives of numerous practitioners, healers, psychiatric patients, doctors, and bureaucrats, revealing the varied and often dramatic ways they cope with market reform and social changes in China.
