Vipassana Day by Day

Vipassana Day 1:

We started with the basic technique of breathing!

We learnt that the natural breath is the thing to have, not the one you force to be shallow or deep or slow or fast, whatever your natural breathing rate is today, that’s what you want.

So we breathed naturally and sat in the meditation pose – aka Buddha

We learnt that we needed to watch the breath and look at the nose area to upper lip and concentrate on that triangle of face.

Having done breathing meditations before I felt right at home and got it going easily and got bored fast and the mind wandered off and I had to keep coming back and remembering to just watch my breath between the nose and upper lip area.

It was not as easy as I thought 😉

We did that all day!
