Observing the Breath

Welcome, Dear Friend

Find a comfortable seated position and gently close your eyes.

Begin by taking a few deep breaths, allowing the stiffness to release from your shoulders, spine, and the rest of your body.

 Once you feel relaxed, inhale gently, as if a butterfly were landing on a delicate flower.

Feel the air kissing your body as it travels through.

Exhale slowly, like gently deflating a balloon.

With each new breath, let your awareness travel along.

As you exhale, observe the cycle from your nostrils to your body and back to nature.

Notice the flow of energy as it enters your body and how your body craves the next inhale as the flow of life.

Repeat this for as long as you can.

Don’t try to control anything; simply flow with the prana vayu.

Observe the rise of your chest with each inhale, and its fall with each exhale.

As you practice, stay open to new sensations with each breath. Don’t judge them; just stay present with them.

When you’re ready, gently open your eyes and take a moment to appreciate the stillness and presence that comes from observing the breath.
