Three guided meditations for using the breath as a gateway to spiritual wisdom.
Full Description

The answers to the most profound spiritual questions lie within us—but how do we gain access to our deepest wisdom? “Breathing is a gateway to insight,” reveals Scottish-born teacher Bodhipaksa, “and meditation gives us the key.” On The Wisdom of the Breath, this master teacher guides listeners through breath-centered meditations for opening to the inner core of spiritual awareness we all possess.With these three essential practices, he reveals how the breath can help you:

  • Let go of the past and future, and rest in pure presence
  • Dissolve the sense of separateness to experience oneness with the world around you
  • Embrace the essential impermanence of all life with serenity and joy
  • Tap into your own natural wisdom by exploring the breath as a metaphor for living

Whether you’re experimenting with meditation for the first time or have been practicing for years, focusing on the breath is a vital technique for realizing inner peace and clarity. Join this accessible and knowledgeable teacher for three invaluable practices to nourish your spiritual growth with The Wisdom of the Breath.

Review for The Wisdom of the Breath

Loved the second CD but with the first one, once you've heard it you really don't need to listen to it again. A very soothing voice. I enjoyed it.

Review for The Wisdom of the Breath

a truly helpful series of meditations for the beginner, and with a lovely and non-distracting tone/voice. I have found this has really helped me stick with my practice where previously I was overly frustrated with my monkey mind.

Review for The Wisdom of the Breath

A solid, very basic introduction to some key Buddhist concepts. Experienced Buddhists will probably find it a little too basic... But it's great for beginners. Where this program really shines though is with the meditation practices. Bodhipaksa is known for his guided meditations and after experiencing them for yourself you'll understand why.
