Does anyone else use this method? As you will know from posts on otehr forums I have very recently started training in this method. I think It is a little early to comment yet but I do feel a little more aware of things in the present. I have quite a journey ahead of me.
I am at the third stage, or third week and have had something new added each week, with an understanding that some practice should be done at home.
Stage 1 Longest Breath. Breathe in gently counting 1-9 and breathe out gently counting 9-1.
Stage 2 Longer Breath. Breathe in gently counting 1-6 and breathe out gently counting 6-1
Stage 3 Short breath. Breathe in gently counting 1-3, andbreathe out gently counting 3-1.
Always leave the meditation as you entered it, so move from 1-2-3-2-1. Acknowledge distractions mindfully and gently bring the concentration back to the breath.
Does anyone else have experience of this? It is a fairly basic technique, but then I think this is a good thing, because an overcomplication, certainly at this stage, would confuse and detract from teh meditation.
