(or at least a book community.)

Book Club

UNBOUND has a 

Anchor 1

VISION: Build a human community of growth focused readers who connect in person or virtually, both synchronously and asynchronously, over books that explore the mind-body intersection, the nervous system, and personal growth through embodied experience. 

MISSION: Crowd source authors and books that meet this vision and organize regular meetups for discussion. Provide a digital platform for disseminating logistics and documenting the community.


Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor

MEETUP sometime in the second half of June!

about the book...

"Modern research in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can help jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, allergies, asthma, and some autoimmune disease, and even straighten spines. 

None of this should be possible, and yet it is."

True Story: 4-7-8 breathing helped get me through my peak challenges of a brain injury from a bike accident.

Also true: I sometimes time strokes to breathing patterns during massage.

“The perfect breath is this: Breathe in for about 5.5 seconds, then exhale for 5.5 seconds. That 5.5 breaths a minute for a total of about 5.5 liters."
-from Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor
"Left-nostril breathing shifts blood flow to the opposite side of the prefrontal cortex, the right area that plays a role in creative thought, emotions, formation of mental abstractions, and negative emotions." 

-from Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor

“Mouthbreathing, it turns out, changes the physical body and transforms airways, all for the worse. Inhaling air through the mouth decreases pressure, which causes the soft tissues in the back of the mouth to become loose and flex inward, creating less space and making breathing more difficult. Mouthbreathing begets more mouthbreathing."
