In the Same Breath
By Jean Latz Griffin, Illustrated by Christine Tobias
Illustrated by Christine Tobias Writers across times and spiritualities explore the mystery of the unity between Spirit and Creation â€“ from the ancient Tao Te Ching to the music and pop culture of the 21st Century.
For nearly 3,000 years, men and women from all cultures have experienced “aha” moments when they felt in their bones that Spirit and Creation were One.
“In the Same Breath” traces this mystery chronologically through 52 weekly writings by women and men in all the world’s spiritual and secular traditions, including Vedic scriptures, Buddhist writings and Islamic, Jewish and Christian mystical texts, as well as selections from modern fiction and the new synthesis of physics and spirituality.
A dozen striking images, each linked to a different epoch, encourage meditation and deep reflection.
“In the Same Breath” holds jewel of selected readings, stunning images
…The jewel of Griffin’s efforts here is in the selections of spirituality that she presents. Some selections are so beautiful that we are reduced to tears…”
“ Dennis Litrell, ranked #25 in among top Amazon reviewers
Â ”…Jean rightly described the book as a hybrid, in part a set of extremely well-chosen weekly readings, part an examination of a thread of spirituality that began 2600 years ago and seems now to be coming full circle, and a third part which is a group of stunning images by Christine Tobias that capture and reflect that spiritual thread. Both the readings and the images can be valuable seeds for contemplation and meditation.”
