Meditation: Awareness of Your Natural Breath

Breath awareness is one of the fundamental meditation practices. Connecting with our natural breath brings us back into the greater intelligence of the body, and of life, and locates us in the centre of our lives so that we are grounded in reality. This practice helps reduce stress, brings clarity, deepens awareness, increases mindfulness, and promotes happiness and wholeness. Breath awareness was actually one of the main practices given by The Buddha to those wishing for a meditation. This meditation requires no equipment, and you can practice wherever you are. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to be at home in our own lives. I hope this offering is of great benefit to you.
