To begin 10-20 minutes, later 30-60 minutes

The eight levels of Self-Inquiry Meditation are described at the end of the eight exercise levels. Level 1/3 is focused on Awareness of the Unity of Body and Breath:

  • Feel your normal breathing and be conscious of the breathing process.

  • Be aware of the unity of body and breath. Feel and observe the expansion of the body with the inhalation and the contraction of the body with the exhalation.

  • Feel how the breath is not only taken in through the nose but also through the body. Feel how the flow of the breath streams through the whole body.
