Celebrating Breath

“Breathing is an exchange between our inner world and the outer world. It is a flow of the masculine and feminine, receiving and giving, a dance of body, soul and Spirit as one. It is, in essence, a perpetual celebration of life.”

– Bhava Ram –

I often forget to breathe fully and deeply, especially when I encounter stressful situations or when I am simply not paying attention, but when I do catch myself engaging in shallow breathing, I close my eyes and take a couple of deep, calming breaths. Not only does it help to centre me, but I am reminded that my breath is a gift of precious, fleeting life.
