This breathing technique is designed to help you learn to involve your entire body in the breathing process.
Seat yourself in a comfortable position, or lie down on the bed or floor. With relaxed concentration, focus on the idea that your entire body is performing the duty of your lungs, breathing air in and out. Inhale and exhale slowly.
As you inhale each breath, imagine you are breathing in the air through each and every pore in your skin. Imagine your entire body as a dry sponge, soaking in the energy of the air through your pores.
As you exhale, imagine you are pushing out all the impurities. As you inhale, imagine you are soaking in clean healthy energy.
Continue with this breathing technique for several minutes. The technique will be most effective if you focus on involving your entire body in the sensation of breathing.
We recommend that this technique be used in conjunction with the Insight CD or MP3 for relaxation, stress reduction, deep meditation, and many other benefits.
