Congratulations!! Your ideal meditation style is:
Mindfulness Of Breathing
Btw, I just sent you an email! Check your inbox (or spam folder!) for the very first lesson of the mindfulness of breathing email course. Look for an email titled, "[YCM] - Your quiz result... Here's what's next!"
The main goal of mindfulness of breathing is to collect and center yourself - your energy, thoughts, and focus - by connecting to the rhythmic and natural flow of the breath.
In other words, it's an openness of being that stays engaged, connected, and aware. By doing so, we’re learning to develop both awareness and focus through release and letting go.
Benefits of Mindfulness Of Breathing
Mindfulness of breathing has a unique combination of benefits that make it particularly effective:
It's Highly Observational
We're tuning into the breath that's already there and learning to remain mindful to help keep us centered. This kind of engagement causes high levels of focus, concentration, and collectedness.
Its Focus Is Narrow
Connecting to the breath where we feel it the clearest gives us an area to center our focus on while we observe the various sensations that are present. This allows for a greater sense of release and ease.
It Rebalances Awareness & Attention
Mindfulness directly supports and leads to better concentration. Rather than focus on just one, we're blending the two together in a way that allows for higher potential, greater experiences, and a more natural technique.
It Promotes Less Reactivity
By practicing mindfulness, we become more aware of what we're doing and why we're doing it. This type of present-level awareness happens alongside any actions, thoughts, or experiences!
"No matter where you go, or what you do, you can sit and connect with the breath. And when you do, you connect with a very ancient lineage that has practiced this technique for thousands of years."
Mindfulness Of Breathing At A Glance
We'll dive into all the details of how to engage the breath in the email course, but here's what it all comes down to:
1. The Core structure
This is an exercise in releasing and letting go of everything but an awareness of what you’re doing and the sensations of the breath.
But we don't want to force anything! If you notice yourself starting to control the breath or over-involve yourself, just release that need and desire, find that natural rhythm again, and gently tune back in.
2. Developing mindfulness
Mindfulness is like a gatekeeper, constantly watching the contents of the mind to help keep you on course. It's something we become, as opposed to something we do.
It's clearly knowing what you’re actively doing and what’s happening at this very moment. It’s a type of present-level awareness that happens alongside any action, thought, or experience.
3. Personal variations
We’re going to look at four different variations that you can apply to mindfulness of breathing. Each one engages the senses differently and supports the core practice.
You're going to learn how to apply a visual-based approach, a feeling-based approach, a sound-based approach, and a counting-based approach. No matter what your skill set is, you'll find a way to engage with the breath in a way that works for you!
What Others Say
I never thought mindfulness of breathing could feel so open and relaxed. The touch of mindfulness really takes this practice to a whole new level!

I always thought meditation was about concentrating on the breath until I did this course. Now I see there's so much more to it than that.
It's amazing how relaxed you can get while feeling so centered and engaged. You really get the best of both worlds with this technique!

And I'll be your coach throughout this course! It’s my hope that this next-level training program will really help you out, no matter if you’re completely new, trying formal meditation techniques for the first time, or returning back to meditation after some time off.
At the end of the day, I want to help spiritual seekers gain clearer access to their intuitive abilities through self discovery and a progressive meditation practice, so that they can experience higher consciousness for themselves. This training program is your first step into a much larger world!
