Your breath is like a body of water, sometimes shallow, other times deep, always rising and falling. You breathe air into your lungs, but the energy of the breath travels everywhere in your body, as oxygen is invited into all of your cells. Take a moment and close your eyes and inhale. Imagine the breath, like a river, moving through your body and extending through your body and extending through smaller tributaries into your limbs, feet, and hands. Your body becomes a landscape, nourished by the ebb and flow of your breath.
