I just posted a review of Hail Mary and Rhythmic Breathing: A New Way of Praying the Rosary by Richard Galentino at Blogcritics. I picked this to review because I was intrigued by the title (being the religious nut that Fresh Mommy says I always make myself sound like on this blog).
It turned out to be an interesting book about meditation and prayer, among other things, and I was all set to try out some of the recommendations. From the title I expected I might toss up a Hail Mary or two while performing a Downward Dog, but it turned out to be a little more complex than that.
One of the suggestions I did try was walking for exercise while practicing meditative deep breathing. But then suddenly a Rhododendron burst into flames and announced “Staci, this is God speaking, don’t be ridiculous! You are not in good enough shape to do this.”
Either that or I passed out, I’m not sure which... it's all rather a blur now.
So I didn’t have much luck with it, but if you’re into that sort of thing, check out my review here.
