“… And I Breathed is a handbook for every executive looking to find peace of mind to go with business success. Jason Garner shares the most intimate details of his rags to riches rise to business success, the fears and doubts he battled along the way and the peace he finally found as he learned to balance the warrior and monk inside. This is a book that will touch your heart, stimulate your brain and cause you to ask the kinds of questions that provoke growth and positive change in your life.”
“Jason Garner’s adventures and observations are parable-like, offering up realizations and lessons that only a person who truly lives from the heart could know and express. I know this book was written with green juices and wild ginseng in Jason’s veins, and with wild Reishi mushrooms from the tops of mountains pumping through his heart. This is the book of a man who is a true example of one who has discovered how to live in the heart of the New Yogic Vedanta, the New Zen, and the New Tao, and has seamlessly melded them in a heart of radiant Shen. I recommend this book to all my students and friends.”
“Beautiful, poignant and deep! I loved this book as it touched me on many levels. Jason Garner is refreshingly open and honest with his emotions, which makes this book such a breath of fresh air!”
Jason Garner is a husband, father, former Fortune 500 company executive, and spiritual student who spent the first 37 years of his life working his way up from flea market parking attendant to CEO of Global Music at Live Nation—never taking a breath in the belief that to be loved he had to be the best.He has worked with rock stars and sports legends and was twice named to Fortune magazine’s list of the top 20 highest-paid executives under 40. A series of events centering on the sudden death of his mother from cancer caused him to re-evaluate what really mattered in life…and to finally breathe. He has spent thousands of hours sitting cross-legged at the feet of timeless Masters of mind, body and spirit including learning from the monks at the Shaolin Temple in China. From an open heart and a sense of confident vulnerability, he now shares the lessons learned on this journey and what he continues to discover through the daily adventure of life at JasonGarner.com.
