We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from addiction – from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin. ‘A must-read for any person who recognizes the need to go “inward” on their soul’s journey to question what their relationship is with God, themselves, and others.’ The Cord ‘Rohr is a perfect writer on the subject of the 12 Steps. His easy-to-read book is essentially a commentary on each of the steps, with twelve chapters and a postscript that concisely tackles the big religious questions of human suffering, suffering with which addicts and their families are intimately acquainted. Jesus, Rohr answers, is no stranger to suffering . . . This is a good book for those in recovery from addiction and those who love them. Publishers Weekly ‘Richard Rohr continues to guide us to greater wholeness . . . his books have helped countless souls, especially those who struggle with issues of brokenness and seek transformation.’ National Catholic Reporter

The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is Americas most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality, says Richard Rohr. He makes a case that the Twelve Steps relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue people who are drowning in addiction and may not even realize it. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe under water and discover Gods love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. He draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those who counsel and live with people with addictive behavior. Rohr offers encouragement for becoming interiorly alive and inspiration for making ones life manageable for dealing with the codependence and dysfunction (sin) rampant in our society.

Breathing Under Water is interviews, conversations, and testimonies of individuals who are trying to let go of the hurts and pains of their past. Some speak as if they are still children, reliving certain events that have scared them. Yet they have all managed to become successful people who need to get on with their lives, but can’t until their issues are resolved. Breathing Under Water gives you that personal feeling of being in a pond, river, whatever. It’s not like swimming and holding your breath because you can come up at any time; it’s a feeling of being held underwater against your will. There’s fear and anxiety and the ultimate desire to come up and breathe. I have tried to give you ideas and answers along with inspirational poetry to help you truly and freely stop breathing under water.

H.K. Hummel's Lessons in Breathing Underwater lucidly examines personal catastrophe by presenting it side by side with artifacts from natural history, art, and objects of wonder. Drawing on elements of domestic fabulism and anesthetic hallucination, she maps the blurry territory of trauma. Memories of her own childhood off the coast of California help her make sense of the oceanic feelings surrounding recovery and motherhood. "We spend whole lifetimes getting unlost and unlost and unlost," she says. Hummel asks about the difficult barters we make to live open and loving lives, and a chorus of historical and mythological women respond with a collective song of survival.

"Breathing under Water" is the portrait of a journey. Evidence of a spirit that aches for Wisdom, and love, and life... There is dreaming, there is hurting, there is healing. Poems and drawings are displayed in chronological order, according to their real moment of creation. It is both in English and in Spanish because I didn't want any original piece to get lost by choosing either language. I added a translated version underneath each one. This all under the intention of making it as honest and straightforward as it could be. For, in the end, it is really nothing else, but a confession.

A cycle of poems spoken in the voice of a commiunity of swimmers and environmentalists who gather at one of the most beautiful natural springs in the US. "Breathing Under Water" is an anthology of poetry at once personal, local and planetary. Weaving the voices, dreams and real time work of a community of dedicated swimmers and environmentalists who gather around an emerald, spring fed, fresh water swimming hole five minutes from the capital building in Austin, Texas, the poet creates a rich ethnographic voice, the voice of a community working to preserve a natural treasure which is known far and wide a "the soul of the city. This is what poetry must be if it is to play a part in the future of American artistic expression. With 'Breathing Under Water" we dip into the spirit of community -- all its laughter, its tears, its promise and fears, all its crazy post modern complexity. (Ric Williams, "Austin Chronicle")
