Mindfulness of Breath

Mindfulness of the Breath is the first meditation practice in the Satipatthana Sutta (The Four Foundations of Mindfulness), the most well-known discourse by the Buddha.  He held mindfulness of breathing in high regard:

Twenty years after the Buddha attained enlightenment, a senior monk by the name of Ananda became his personal attendant. One day he asked the Buddha, “Venerable sir, if people ask me whether you are still practicing meditation, what shall I tell them?” The Buddha replied that, yes, he was still meditating “What kind of meditation do you practice, venerable sir?” Ananda asked. “Mindfulness of breathing,” the Buddha answered.

In this session, we will explore and practice mindfulness of breathing to experience its benefits.
