Mindfulness of breathing is a foundational practice, but it’s not merely for beginners. Some mindfulness practitioners spend their entire lives with this one method of deepening awareness.
In this episode, Mindfulness Exercises founder, Sean Fargo leads a 12-minute guided meditation on mindfulness of breath. The practice begins with grounding, as Sean invites us to sense into the body’s connection to the earth. We’re then asked to shift awareness into the belly, observing the sensations and rhythm of breath.
Surrender to the simplicity of breathing, by practicing presence with each breath in and each breath out.
