63 Mindfulness of Breathing, Phase Two

16 May 2011

This morning, Alan first reviews the practice of mindfulness of breathing, the second phase, with its emphasis on the somatic sensations of the breath in the abdomen, while maintaining relaxation and increasing stability. This is followed by an unguided 24-minute meditation, and then Alan reminds us to maintain our mindfulness between sessions by bringing our awareness to the breath and the tactile sensations of the body, releasing the flow of conceptual thinking associated with obsessive-compulsive-delusional-disorder.

The unguided meditation begins at 8:40 in the recording.
