Awareness of breath meditation

Focus: set your intention to set aside this time for yourself to practice. Shine a spotlight onto your breath- where it comes in at your nostrils, feeling your stomach and chest rise and fall with each in- and out-breath

Explore: be curious about what you find, just noticing what is- hotness, coldness, tingling, tightness, pain etc

Embrace: turning towards your breath, sitting with any unpleasant-ness without judgement, with compassion, trying not to get caught up in any storylines and evaluations.

Let go: Surrender to the practice, bringing your mind back to the practice whenever it wanders (which minds do!). Letting go and letting come, in and out, natural ebb and flow. Breathing in, and breathing out, the most natural thing in the world.
