Mental Health Week: Beginning with the Breath
We begin our Mental Health Week by offering you a mindfulness breath practice. The breath is always a home to anchor our attention. The breath can bring awareness to our current experience, body, mind and surroundings. Cultivating this awareness can offer you insight into how you are doing and how you might need to take care of your mental and physical health. Take this time to rest in the breath and nourish yourself:
