The Cure for All Ills

The element of air has been related to spiritual practice for millennia, perhaps because when our lungs breathe air, the oxygenated blood goes to our hearts. And from there, air goes deep inside to our deepest essence.

There is an air-based healing meditation practice that goes to this deepest essence. Guatama Buddha discovered it as a key to healing and wholeness 2500 years ago. Find out more about it here:

The great Buddhist breathing meditation is known as Vipassana meditation. In a Vipassana meditation, a person focuses on the breath, paying attention to it as it goes in and out of your body. While the mind presents thoughts and distractions, you keep coming back to focus on the breath. Gautama Buddha felt that this meditation would cure all ills.

..allowing the physical to relax..allows energy to unblock and flow..keeping mind aware and focused on such, facilitates learning about ones own vehicle..what it needs....where it needs....and how it spontaneously re aligns its self when freed up from tension. metta..x

Breathe in and out slowly so you hyper ventilate.
