Welcome to my author page … where I get to play author! That is, I’m as new to this as I am to everything else. As my dear friend Angaangaq ( ” Uncle ” ) remarked at the recent Power of Shamanism summit :
I’m so excited !
I’ve just turned 70 ! !
I’m looking forward to finding out what it means to be an adult ! ! !
Well, as The Gary Gach Author Page organically evolves within its yeasty petri dish, I hope you do circle back every now & then. ( At least – until the SIngularity. )
To think I’ve been online since 1989. Gosh! ( What do you remember of 1989? ) Yet this author page business, I’m finding out, is a distinctly different kind of animal than, say, my ancient home page. ( Maybe it can be it’s own kind of “social media” ? After all, I’ve yet to meet, much less interact with, the +100,000 readers of my previous book – who form, in my mind, a distinct body. –Wanna meet up at a con ? )
So please join me in the universal adventuresome spirit of discovery (&, ah! a bit of just plain awe) as we find out what an author page is. —Fair enough?
Ok. So here’s what I got today. This season, & on thru ’til Xmas, I’m celebrating! How come? After 5 [ five ] years ( 1825 days ) my next humble book will be born. ( It has its own page, w/ a preview below. ) In honor of this gift, to me & to you, I’ll see what I can create here to match at least one micron [ μ ] of the excitement of this phenomenal Event.
Please, enjoy! & come back often. Gary, the author

Pause . . . breathe . . . smile. Three small words, yet each contains a universe of wisdom. With Pause, Breathe, Smile, Gary Gach invites us to bring the practice of mindfulness into every moment of our lives.
Writing for students of all levels, Gach draws on 50-plus years of study and practice in this elegant and accessible presentation of three central aspects of mindful living. The pause is about setting our intention before we think, speak, or act — the ethical dimension of mindfulness. When we breathe we unite mind, body, and spirit, making every moment an opportunity for meditation. With a smile, we open to a wisdom beyond words. This simple process will “water your innate seeds of awakening, to help you pave your own path to total fulfillment and peace.”
For all who may wish to explore mindfulness in their lives as a healing and transformative practice, remember three little words: Pause, Breathe, Smile.
