Guided Meditation

Mindfulness of Breathing


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


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


  • It is not necessary to focus on a particular location in the body.


  • Be mindful of breathing in and breathing out. 


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


  • If you breathe long the diaphraagm will expand and the stomach will extend out with the out breath. 


  • Allow the breath to flow in and out of the body, whether the breath is rough or smooth, 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 outbreath when the mind easily wanders.


  • Let the brain cells become quiet. 


  • Mindfulness of breathing contributes to harmony of body and mind and direct experience of organic life.


  • The air element confirms our intimacy and inter-dependence with the surrounding world. 


  • Feel the freedom of simply breathing in and breathing out.
