2014-09-16 Breath: An Intimate Focus for Attention 45:06
  Shaila Catherine
This talk was given as a part of the series "Enhancing Mindfulness Skills." How do we approach the breath? The breath can be used in a variety of ways to enhance mindfulness and to cultivate insight, such as impermanence. Most simply, perhaps, is that we can calm the mind by observing the breath. We can use the breath to tune into the present moment experience, here and now. We also can use the breath as a way to assess our feelings. Namely, we can tune into our moods by noticing how our breath changes. Another approach to work with the breath is to realize that it's changing, that it's impermanent. This realization of the impermanence of the breath can lead us to a skillful and powerful recollection of death. Let this contemplation of death be poignant enough to stir a sense of urgency within us, so we can reflect on what is really important in our lives.
