Calming ourselves with the breath

The breath is a wonderful object of meditation because it is always with us, it’s rhythmical, and it connects us intimately with our bodies and our surroundings.

Taking a deep breath

One of the most effective ways we can use to calm ourselves down is to learn what’s called diaphragmatic breathing – filling the whole of our lungs with the breath.

Music and mindfulness

Like music, mindfulness is an embodied way of living, and like music, mindfulness can help us approach our emotions in a new way.
