In this practice, we are simply attending to the breath with kind attention, moment by moment. You do not need to breathe deeply or in any particular way. We are just noticing the breath. When you have completed this meditation, take a moment to scan the body and allow the feeling of presence you have cultivated through this meditation to stay with you throughout the rest of your day and night.
From the community
i found it very difficult to focus on this meditation. from going to school and then straight to work i have felt very tired and honestly did not engage with this meditation as much as i would have liked
Intro to meditation part 1
I learned that I am able to focus for the entire meditation. I felt how I was breathing and concentrated on doing that correctly.
I had a sense of “letting go”. I felt as it I was in a wave of warmth. I can only imagine how much better this will be over days to come.
I learned that I can relax a little bit more now. I’m just trying to heal from a traumatizing past that I have experienced.
First Meditation Session
I felt instantly calmer and more present in the moment after the brief meditation session. It really calmed my nervous system and brought me back to the current moment and out of fight or flight mode.
I felt present more relaxed
I learned that my mind did wander however I was able to guide it back
I feel like my breathing isn’t quite as natural as I’d like. Overall a calming experience
I learned that I feel the breath in different parts of me. Comfortable and also really noticed cat who was helping by breathing extra purrily.
I learned to let myself get in a relaxed state but my mind did start to drift and I was able to bring it back to where I wanted it
I noticed my mind wandering but I was able to come back to the present. I feel more relaxed
I love it,it was so fascinating as I was listening and dwelling into peace,like I was in lucid
