Sit upright. Chin up. Hands on your lap.

Take a deep breath.

Breathe in through the nose.

Breathe out through the mouth.

Breathe in, feel your lungs expand.

Breathe out, feel the sense of letting go.

Breathe in through the nose, feel the breath throughout the body.

Breathe out, feel the air leaving the body.

Breathe in through the nose, feel the breath throughout the body.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
