The first session defines meditation and describes the Buddhist teachings that give a context to the path of practice. We explore the two basic types of meditation–concentration and mindfulness–and then focus on the ground of mindfulness training: bringing mindful attention to the breath and bodily sensations. Guided meditations include setting intention and the sacred pause; learning to “come back” using an anchor of the breath; and “being here” with an embodied presence.
