In Breathing, Michael Sky offers simple breathing exercises that are intended to be experienced as they are read. He discusses breath, the central organizing life force, as it relates to emotional responses, lifetime habits, sleep, childbirth, sexual communion, and higher consciousness.

Page 19 - Sail forth — steer for the deep waters only, Reckless O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me, For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all. O my brave soul ! O farther farther sail ! O daring joy, but safe ! are they not all the seas of God ? O farther, farther, farther sail ! PRAYER OF COLUMBUS.
