To sit and watch the breath is one of - if not the - most potent forms of training the mind: breaking the bonds of ego and liberating the essence of who we are. Meditation is the foundation practice on our journey to awakening.

 

The meditative state

An extract from Russ's book "Touch of Awareness" (available in our store)

It is here that we engage the most intense, and powerful method for training our mind.
