Teens Day 1: Use the breath to center yourself

There will be some posts over the next four weeks to accompany the Introductory Mindfulness Course which I am running with teenagers.

Breath is the bridge that connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold again.

In our community, where people are practicing the mindfulness of doing laundry, washing dishes, eating, walking and so forth, everybody learns to use breath as a tool for restoring mindfulness.
