Three Deep Breaths

Three Deep Breaths provides a simple technique that you can use, no matter how busy you are, to transform tough situations into positive, energizing experiences. It is a mind/body technique that combines the ”cognitive-restructuring” capability of the brain (the ability to change our attitudes and perceptions of the world) with the calmness and presence of an aligned, centered state of being.

Thomas Crum illustrates this radically simple technique through the story of Angus, who is struggling to break through the negative habits that lead to anger, exhaustion, and poor performance. By working with our breath, by being aware of it and using it as a focusing tool, we can open up a whole new world of possibility.

This attractive book, with a forward written by Mark Victor Hansen, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, will make a great gift for your family and friends.

In Thomas Crum’s wonderful story you may discover what you felt has been missing…. ..until now.

Journey to Center

This book by Tom Crum features humorous and poignant stories on the exploration of centered and uncentered states. Whether in Southeast Asia or his backyard in Aspen, Tom finds adventures that constantly amaze, entertain, and enlighten.

What a delightful book! Journey to Center has a vital message, but the message never get in the way of the fun. And a big part of the fun is getting to know the adventurous, high-spirited, and wonderfully candid author. I savored this wise and enchanting book from cover to cover.
