Whether you are new to meditation, lapsed in your practice, or simply curious, you have found the right teacher. Dana Trent is not only wise about the ways in which our tech-driven lives are stunting our spiritual growth but also serious about offering us an invitation to be still with God for a few moments each day. The added bonus of her skepticism is that she knows how hard that can be–and why it remains essential for our soul’s health.Barbara Brown Taylor, Author of Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others
Dana’s journey into contemplation is, to me, a sign of the times. As we reach for a still point in the turning world, meditation isn’t a flight from the world of action but a way of staying centered in the midst of it. One breath at a time, indeed.Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Author of Reconstructing the Gospel
Dana Trent’s One Breath at a Time is powerful and instructive. Trent’s poignant words give us the practical guidance that we need to learn, practice, and grow, and she keeps us engaged in every step of the way.Rev. Carol Howard Merritt, Author of Healing Spiritual Wounds: Reconnecting with God After Experiencing a Hurtful Church
