Guided Meditation: Mindfulness of Breathing



This is a guided meditation that I led this week in a Google Hangout (that’s a form of videoconferencing, if you’re not familiar with it) with some meditation students.

After 100 Days of Lovingkindness practice I felt the need to get back to exploring mindful breathing meditation again.

The sound quality’s not perfect and the video is — well, there’s no video. Due to a technical problem of some sort the video stopped being recorded a few minutes into the Hangout, so I just took it out altogether.

Still, I hope you’ll enjoy and benefit from the talk and the practice.

  • What a lovely experience! Thank you.

  • Dear Bodhipaksa,

    I am still a bit confused about the meditation process on love and kindness, emptiness, etc.

    So at what point does one start contemplating about it? What I mean is do I start contemplating love and kindness as I start the meditation session, or do I wait until I reach a deeper stage of concentration and then start with the love and kindness contemplation?

    • I’d suggest just following some guided meditations, Sam. We don’t really contemplate kindness but rather cultivate it in a variety of ways. And the cultivating of kindness can start from the moment you sit down. Simply checking that you’re sitting in a comfortable, upright posture can be an act of self-kindness.
