Meditation on Breathing – Update 2017

I Wish You and Family A Happy New Year!

Problem: Busy people don’t have time to practice popular stress management techniques (1).
Solution: One stressed out young man said “I struck gold in ‘Counting breaths’” (2).

Falling asleep and Waking up: ‘Focusing on breathing’ at bedtime keeps the thoughts out, calms the mind and improves sleep (2). Practice lying meditation on waking up, eyes closed, to begin the day calmly (3).

Daytime: ‘Focusing on a few breaths’ when the mind is idle – waiting at the red light when driving, waiting in a line and walking, makes this practice spontaneous (5). Enjoy benefits for Mind, Body and Relationships at no cost of time and money (6).

Finally, try ‘Meditation on breathing’ in the lying position, on waking up in the bed, returning from work or on weekends. You will be impressed with its healing effect. You may be tempted to sit and meditate! Regular meditation dissolves the roots of stress. Your life can move on your dream path (7).

Seminar – East Greenbush Library

I offered the 16th seminar at East Greenbush Community Library (1) on January 11, 2017 from 6.30 to 8.30 pm. Attended by 12 adults. A folder containing my key handouts  and sample testimonials was given to each participant (2), (3). It was interesting to hear from a participant that she attended the seminar a few years back and the technique helped her sleep. She came this time along with her husband. They both met me at the end and her husband commented “she falls asleep so quickly”. She said she brought him along because he does not sleep well.
