The Fullness of Emptiness: A Guided Breath Meditation

Practice

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.
