Summary
'Just when the medical profession had given up on me and I on it, just when I seemed to be walled up in a life sentence of chronic pain, someone proposed a bizarre way out: sit still, they said, and breathe...' TEACH US TO SIT STILL is the visceral, thought-provoking and improbably entertaining story of Tim Parks' quest to overcome ill health
Summary
Recounts how the author took up breathing exercises and meditation when traditional methods failed to meet the needs of a debilitating health condition, a journey during which he began to question everything he once believed and gained an understanding of the relationship between the mind and body
