The June ’09 issue of Fortean Times  has reviewed Gary Lachman’s  Politics and the Occult: The Left, The Right, and the Radically Unseen.

“Though exquisitely researched, Politics (and the Occult)  is most illuminating when Lachman detours from straight reporting to offer up analysis…without a whiff of paranoia or wobbly speculation…Ultimately, Politics and the Occult is concerned with how the world is understood and particpated in.  This excellent work, built on revolutions both Earthly and spiritual, attests to the protean nature of ideas.”    –Mike Pursely, Fortean Times

QUEST BOOKS is excited to announce our new release, Breathe into Being: Awakening to Who You Really Are by Dennis Lewis,  teacher of natural breathing, qigong, meditation, and self-enquiry!


3d-coverBreathe into Being is the refreshing and easy-to-use guide from author and meditation instructor Dennis Lewis.  With the chaos of this modern world pushing our schedules to the max, Lewis believes the time has come to break away and simply breathe!

Breathe into Being is your first step towards restoring calmness and clarity.   This book offers purposeful breath through exercises that are short and attainable, while maintaining rich, insightful content.  Both body and mind emerge refreshed and at peace, bringing spiritual vitality and awareness throughout.  An invaluable tool for managing those real-life instances ‘in the present moment’ when mounting emotional stress and tensions can peak so suddenly.


Dennis is a master teacher who stands fast in the profound truth that when we welcome this moment just as it is, life works. How simple. How overlooked. How astonishing and wonderful. The secret he reveals: all that we need do is attend to our body’s natural function of breathing in, and breathing out. Nothing more is needed. Listen to Dennis. Breathe. Be still and awaken into living your alive, joyful and harmonious Presence that Dennis so beautifully reveals.

Richard Miller, PhD, author of Yoga Nidra: The Meditative Heart of Yoga (Sounds True) is president of the Center of Timeless Being and co-founder of the International Association of Yoga Therapists

A refreshingly simple, straightforward, and enjoyable exploration of the connections between body, breath, awareness, and presence. This user-friendly guidebook will help you be more embodied and awake.

John Welwood, author of Toward a Psychology of Awakening

Breathe into Being is a most practical, user-friendly yet profound guide to awakening, with simple exercises that blow away the conditioned mind’s veils, allowing one’s inner light to shine forth. I highly recommend it.

—Leonard Laskow, M.D., author of Healing with Love

Dennis Lewis has written a very wise and highly readable book about one of the most fundamental insights of the great spiritual traditions: the breath is a mediator between mind and body, and is a bridge to the transcendent. This is a marvelous guidebook in cultivating awareness and living in the now. All valid spiritual instruction is simple and unadorned—as simple as breathing, as Lewis makes clear in Breathe into Being.

—Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words and The Power of Premonitions

We all know that breathing is essential to life. But this book helps us to discover its immense importance not only to physical life, but to the very meaning of what we are and what we can become.

—Jacob Needleman, author of Why Can’t We Be Good? and The American Soul

Breathe Into Being is both a fun and a must read, a fountain of practical wisdom for self-exploration that is delicious on the tongue of the soul while quenching our thirst for the knowledge of enlightenment. It is perhaps the most important self-help book – in the deeper sense of that expression – to come out in the new millennium.

—Glenn H. Mullin, author of The Fourteen Dalai Lamas: A Sacred Legacy of Reincarnation
