This FBA Dharmabyte, ’Working at Your Own Pace’ brings to life Viveka’s fresh and vibrant take on the traditional practice of anapanasati - mindfulness with breathing.
Using the breath as a stabilizing presence, this series of meditations (including two fully-guided practices) is designed to help us discover the nature of reality itself by encouraging us to notice what is actually happening each moment in a direct and open way. Anapanasati is a complete path to awakening...
Dhammarati - in conversation here with Dhammamegha - is one of the most experienced members of the Triratna College of Public Preceptors having chaired it for over ten years.

Day 19 is a meditation on the breath, seeing the nature of thoughts. In the meditation we label our thoughts to help us disentangle from them and see their nature more clearly. When we catch ourselves caught up in our thoughts we can label it as thinking. This can help us let go of whatever it is we are caught up in. Have a day mind full of breath. The music has been composed by The Alaska None.
