Need a short youtube intro to breath meditation

Postby Mojo » Sun May 19, 2013 6:47 am

Howdy all. I have a stressed out work acquaintance that I'd like to introduce to a basic breath meditation. I'm really looking for something short and sweet - something eyecatching but useful - nonsectarian. This person is online alot which is why I'm going the youtube route instead of a book.

This person's plate is overflowing.

Thanks,

Mojo

I would offer kaya contemplation: basically training to experience breathing as a whole-body event, and sustaining attention away from chains of thought. Then, talking with them about calming involvement with that has a good foundation, and in this way the first tetrad of anapanasati is introduced as a process of lucid awareness & letting go, rather than as a religious engagement or strictly seated endeavor.

I'm unaware of specific Youtube resources that align with this.
