book coverThe Wisdom of the Breath
by Bodhipaksa (Sounds True, 2009)

Sounds True has published a two-CD audiobook of Bodhipaksa's teachings on how an awareness of the breath can help us break through into an awakened perspective. By exploring three meditation practices, Bodhipaksa reveals how the breath can help you:

  • Let go of the past and future, and rest in pure presence
  • Dissolve the sense of separateness to experience oneness with the world around you
  • Embrace the essential impermanence of all life with serenity and joy
  • Tap into your own natural wisdom by exploring the breath as a metaphor for living

The Audiobook is available from Wildmind, Sounds True, and Amazon.
