Breath Practice


“The fundamental nature of the breath is that, like life, it is constantly changing.”

~ Donna Farhi, The Breathing Book

“Close your eyes and relax into your body. Imagine a light all around you, the light of your soul. Then with your breath, draw that light into your body and bring it with your breath through every area of your body.”

~ John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

 “As you breathe in, you say to yourself, ‘Breathing in, I know that I am breathing in.’ And as you breathe out, say, ‘Breathing out, I know that I am breathing out.’ Just that. You recognize your in-breath as an in-breath and your out-breath as an out-breath.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step
