Why use the breath?

The breath is a good friend – it is always with us. 

  • The breath can be used by anyone, it doesn’t matter what race or religion or class or country they belong to. 

  • The breath is a link between the mind and the body. 

  • We can control the breath, or let it work on its own. 

  • We learn about how our own mind works by simply observing the breath. 

  • When the mind is upset, you can notice the breath gets hard and rough. 

  • If you just keep watching the breath, the mind calms down naturally and you will notice the breath getting softer.
