One of my favourite Buddhist teacher’s Thich Nhat Hanh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thich_Nhat_Hanh) has generously given us permission to use one of his poetic verses on the breath. Day 5 is a meditation to help connect to the breath. The breath can help us to pause and slow down, bringing more choice in how we respond to life. We come back to the breath several times during these three weeks, because breath is one of our best teachers. The music has been arranged and composed for ‘In breath, out breath’ by Nina Wise, and the verse is sung by the Songsters. Wishing you all much loving kindness as you continue on this journey.

I am finding this project really useful, I have an interest in mindfulness meditation and I feel the benefits when practicing regularly. I do find it very difficult to sustain daily practice - having the links to the exercises emailed daily is great - I’m hoping I can build a daily meditation in to my life with the help of this project. Thank you !

Hi Vicky. Great to hear - if it’s of interest we also have an online meditators group, which is especially useful for anyone who doesn’t have a wider context to meditate in like a Buddhist group or centre. We meditate together twice a week. You can find it here
