Jack Kornfield – Heart Wisdom – Ep. 203 – Ocean of Air Meditation

Jack shares a guided meditation on relaxing into the ocean of air we find ourselves in when we open to the present moment.

Transform your life through Jack’s Kornfield’s most powerful stories in this brand new 10-hour journey starting Sept 28th!

“You become a connoisseur of breathing for this moment, attentive to this remarkable breathing in and out of the atmosphere, keeping you alive, exchanging with all.” – Jack Kornfield

In this episode, Jack leads a guided meditation helping us:
  • Tune into embodied presence
  • Invite in relaxation, ease and calm
  • Become mindful of the body breathing itself
  • Use noting to move past waves of emotions and thoughts

“As you sense each breath, you can whisper softly in the background of your mind, ‘Ease, calm,’ and allow the embodied presence that is feeling this breath to invite you into a place of stillness, breath by breath.” – Jack Kornfield

This meditation was originally live-streamed by Spirit Rock Meditation Center for the Monday Night Dharma Talk on July 24, 2023.
