Mindfulness of Breathing

  • In the sitting posture, be mindful of the full breath experience

  • Experience the body expanding with inhalation and contracting with the exhalation

  • Be mindful of breathing in and breathing out

  • If tired, keep the eyes open. If restless, breathe long and deep, relax with the out breath

  • Allow the breath to flow in and out of the body, shallow or deep

  • Be aware of any moment(s) of stillness before the next in-breath

  • Be aware of changes in the breath, of impermanence of every breath

  • Experience the air element stimulating the cells of the body

  • Relax gently with the out breath when the mind easily wanders

  • Let the brain cells become quiet

  • Air element confirms our intimacy and inter-dependence with the surrounding world

  • Feel the freedom of simply breathing in and breathing out

  • Mindfulness of breathing contributes to harmony of body and mind

  • Mindfulness connects directly with organic life.
