This guided meditation explores the bottom of the breath.
This guided meditation explores the bottom of our exhale. This can be very calming, as it tends to instigate the rest-and-digest nervous system state, but it can also be a little scary for some of us because it indicates an ending, the mini-death of the breath. Exploring how we feel when we are empty and not yet hurrying to fill ourselves up can be a valuable practice within the breath, and also within our lives. Please ensure you practice this is a gentle way: If breathing in this way becomes too stressful, breathe regularly. This practice may not be appropriate for pregnancy as it can affect blood pressure and oxygen intake.
