This simple 15-minute practice guides you through a breathing practice that engages deep breathing in your belly, ribs and chest. Breath is the core of our stress response, and similarly it can center our relaxation response. This practice is meant to help bring focus to slowing down and relaxing the body and breath to assist in relaxation mind, body and spirit. This is a good place to start if you are new to meditation or guided practices of any kind and also useful to anyone. You can carry this easy practice into daily life, pulling it out whenever you need it. 

*Consult your own physician or mental health care clinician prior to listening if you have any contraindictions or medical/mental health issues which might be negatively impacted by a breathing practice.
