Mindfulness of Breathing

 

The mindfulness of breathing meditation involves bringing a curious attention to the breath and noticing the physical sensations of the breath as it flows in and out of the body from moment to moment. When the mind wanders from the breath—which it will again and again—one practices noticing where the mind went off to and then gently bringing the attention back to the breath again and again. One repeats this process over and over during the practice. This repeated process of observing the breath and noticing when the mind wanders helps one develop greater awareness of one's inner experience and where one's mind tends to wander. In addition, one practices bringing an open and accepting attitude to the process of watching the breath and noticing the mind wandering. When the mind wanders away from the breath to other things like thoughts and emotions, one practices noticing thoughts and emotions that come up with an open and accepting attitude instead of trying to get rid of them or rather than judging oneself for having a wandering mind. Paying attention with this open and non-judgmental attitude helps one develop greater acceptance towards one's inner experience
