TEN BREATHS: Try this gentle mindful practice. Stand or sit in front of a window looking deeply out into nature, or stand outside in nature. Close your eyes and simply take 10 complete, deep breaths. My favorite place for this practice is outside in a sunny spot. In the time it takes for Ten Breaths (less than 2 minutes) you will feel more grounded and peaceful, and whole. While you breathe, focus on breathing. Focus on being present.
Shining One, Breathing out, let go
And fall into knowing all of creation
As existing within space,
And you are absorbed in that
Vibrant empty fullness.
In this moment your body is intimate
With space, exchanging essence for essence.
Balancing in the midst of vast emptiness,
Know utter freedom. ~ Lorin Roche, PhD.
