Want to get better at the Mindfulness of Breathing?

The Mindfulness of Breathing is the practice that gives us a structure to take our awareness into the breath, the body, the feelings, the mind and the nature of phenomena.

Over the past six weeks Dhammarati has been leading a series on the Anapanasati Sutta - the Buddha’s instructions on this practice. This Q&A session was offered to the 200 people on the course; watch for a sneak-peak at what next week’s Order retreat on the Satipatthana will be like. There...
