Today we'll be practising a meditation called the breathing space – where we linger within the sacred and nurturing space between the breath to connect with stillness and release stress. it's a simple practise you can use anytime you feel overwhelmed or stressed and feel the need for a reset
The breath is our sanctuary – it anchors us and calms us. And the space in-between the breath is a beautiful space and sanctuary to rest and reside – especially when things get tough.
I personally love the breath meditations because we are not asking the mind to quieten – instead, we just focus on the breath. We are giving the mind a distraction or something to focus on.
In these breathing meditations, there is a moment where the mind becomes anchored within the breath yet at the same time there's an opportunity to really experience a deep sense of calm and stillness.
For today’s meditation, you're going to need something comfortable to sit on or lay down on. I have a meditation cushion and a blanket but if you just have a cushion or a chair that is ok. Or alternatively lay on your bed or yoga mat.
Start by coming into a comfortable seated or laying down position with a tall straight spine.
I will give you a moment to settle in. From my heart to yours! I hope you enjoy today’s practice.
