My neighborhood group met on Zoom last night for a "bread-and-butter" breath meditation. Nothing fancy, just careful and concentrated attention to the breath. We went slower this time than usual, leaving more time for the mind to get settled and focused on one part of the body before moving on to the next. It was a quiet, pleasant experience, and I think that those who joined me left feeling somewhat cleansed from the events that have been happening around us this past week. This is one of the great benefits and pleasures of the practice: to find a quiet place within where nothing comes along to disturb or upset the mind. It's a place that is much needed, not least by myself, in our current multiple and multiplying predicament.
