Mindfulness Meditation - Thursday 16 February 2017

Om Chant 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.youtube.com/watch

The Three-Minute Breathing Space Practice ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
There are three steps to the practice:
Attend to what is. The first step invites attending broadly to one’s experience, noting it, but without the need to change what is being observed.
Focus on the breath. The second step narrows the field of attention to a single, pointed focus on the breath in the body.
Attend to the body. The third step widens attention again to include the body as a whole and any sensations that are present.www.youtube.com
