Book Discussion for Nurses – Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art

Join Rainier Olympic Nurses Association for a book discussion.

Book: Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor

“There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences.

Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.”

Open to all RNs, LPNs and nursing students. Nurses who attend and complete an evaluation form will receive a certificate of attendance that meets the continuing competency requirement for license renewal in Washington State.

This will be a hybrid event held at the new R.O.N.A. office: 4115 Bridgeport Way W Suite F University Place, WA 98466 or nurses can join us virtually through a zoom link. We will be limiting in person attendance to allow for social distancing. We ask that all attendees are vaccinated and wear a mask. KN95 masks will be available at the office.

All nurses who register will be sent a zoom link to join virtually.

If you have any issues, please contact us at

The book can be borrowed from the library or purchased from local book stores or through
