Ānāpānasati, meaning "mindfulness of breathing", is a form of Buddhist meditation originally taught by Gautama Buddha and a core meditation practice in the Theravada tradition. The Ānāpānasati Sutta specifically concerns mindfulness of inhalation and exhalation, as a part of paying attention to one's body in quietude. Enjoy this beautiful and ancient practice. Namaste!

anapanasati = sublime awareness
Breathe In Deeply Slowly Completely Count to three Exhale to emptiness Repeat The world will open itself to you
To draw the breath and release in complete awareness is an exercise in personal intervention in the chaotic nature of our days. Even in moments of solitude, one finds oneself in a still safe place.
Anapanasati meditation with music
I found this to be a powerful way to centre my focus and to emphasise the rmoment being experienced. At the end of this meditation I felt both alert and refreshed but also relaxed at the same time. It’s good to know that this is available for me to use whenever I want to re-centre myself.
My Breath
I found that concentrating on and counting each breath drew more awareness to the power of my breath. I have not counted my breathing in this manner previously and I found this practice to be very focused and centering. I became both more aware and relaxed.
Finding oneness with the Divine
Being still and present, counting breaths, my only focus is feeling the air I breath and just staying connected within. Namaste 🙏
I’m interested in learning Sanskrit which is exciting for me! Such a calm balanced meditation love this! My passion
Learned a new Sanscrit word
It was very helpful having someone else count for me since i have a short attention span. I’ve had a number of disappointments this morning but this calmed me and brought me back to center. I really can’t ask for anything more than that. 🌷🥰🌷🌷🙏
Dozed off...dropped phone
That didn't go well. 🙄 Had a poor night’s sleep despite accidentally taking two doses of Nyquil for this head cold!
Marvelous way to begin
I feel FABULOUS. And any time the day gets frantic I can take some time to practice and focus on the breath
I learned that mindful breathing leaves me calm, focused and refreshed
Anapanasati, or conscious awareness of our breath is one of the simplest portals that we can use to connect to the present moment where we will find stillness. It is in this stillness where we can connect to our inner wisdom and ultimately, the Divine. In this meditation, Dorothy has us count our inhalation for a time and then switch to counting our exhalation for the rest of the time. When we count our breaths, our mind is put to a task and thoughts can not interfere. Therefore, counting our breaths can be a useful tool for any one of us that is either new to meditation or is having a hard time focusing due to a case of monkey mind. Beginning to focus only on my inhalation, feeling the fresh air enter my nostrils and fill my lungs, I counted to 10. Switching to focusing only on my exhalation, feeling my lungs empty out the used air and exit my nostrils, I counted to 10. Focusing on both my inhalation and exhalation at the same time, I welcomed this stillness I felt within. I welcomed this connection with my inner wisdom and ultimately, the Divine, where my being was filled with light and joy. When I opened my eyes after listening to this meditation, my mind is calm, yet focused and my body is refreshed. Thank you Dorothy! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
