Cultivate happiness and calm with mindfulness meditations
Mindfulness is a proven method for finding calm and reducing stress. Practical guidance from the founder of One Mind Dharma will help build or enhance an ongoing mindfulness practice.
The Wandering Mind
The natural tendency of the mind is to wander. Even the most accomplished meditators have wandering minds! The brain was designed to process information; it’s just doing its job. Rather than seeing this as a problem, approach it as an opportunity to strengthen your mindfulness. Try to bring forgiveness, curiosity, and patience to these moments, and whenever your mind wanders, bring it back to the breath.
Finding the Breath / Time: 5 minutes
The body is always breathing, and the breath is constantly moving. Your breath is not only the best place to start; it’s a constant you can return to anytime you need a little centering.
In this first practice, you will gently find the breath in the body. There is nothing to figure out, there are no problems to solve, and there’s nothing special you need to do.
Constantly return to your direct experience of the body breathing. You are training the mind to be with one experience without distraction.
