We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from addiction – from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin. ‘A must-read for any person who recognizes the need to go “inward” on their soul’s journey to question what their relationship is with God, themselves, and others.’ The Cord ‘Rohr is a perfect writer on the subject of the 12 Steps. His easy-to-read book is essentially a commentary on each of the steps, with twelve chapters and a postscript that concisely tackles the big religious questions of human suffering, suffering with which addicts and their families are intimately acquainted. Jesus, Rohr answers, is no stranger to suffering . . . This is a good book for those in recovery from addiction and those who love them. Publishers Weekly ‘Richard Rohr continues to guide us to greater wholeness . . . his books have helped countless souls, especially those who struggle with issues of brokenness and seek transformation.’ National Catholic Reporter

Breathing Under Water is interviews, conversations, and testimonies of individuals who are trying to let go of the hurts and pains of their past. Some speak as if they are still children, reliving certain events that have scared them. Yet they have all managed to become successful people who need to get on with their lives, but can’t until their issues are resolved. Breathing Under Water gives you that personal feeling of being in a pond, river, whatever. It’s not like swimming and holding your breath because you can come up at any time; it’s a feeling of being held underwater against your will. There’s fear and anxiety and the ultimate desire to come up and breathe. I have tried to give you ideas and answers along with inspirational poetry to help you truly and freely stop breathing under water.

"Breathing under Water" is the portrait of a journey. Evidence of a spirit that aches for Wisdom, and love, and life... There is dreaming, there is hurting, there is healing. Poems and drawings are displayed in chronological order, according to their real moment of creation. It is both in English and in Spanish because I didn't want any original piece to get lost by choosing either language. I added a translated version underneath each one. This all under the intention of making it as honest and straightforward as it could be. For, in the end, it is really nothing else, but a confession.
