Connecting to our breath

Today we start with something both easy to do and core to strengthening our attention muscles.

We will simply tune into our breath and notice how it is, without trying to change anything.

Get yourself sitting in a comfortable position, feet flat on the floor, hands gently on your lap, eyes closed.

Take two or three deep breaths, then breathe as you normally would. Simply become aware of your breath. No need to change it or breathe in a particular way.

When the mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to your breath.

Do this for a few minutes.

Notice, without judging:

Is it fast or slow?
Long and deep, or short and shallow?
Does is vary?

This breath gives us feedback about how we are right now.
