Mindfulness Meditation from Thich Nhat Hanh

Breathing in

I see myself as a flower

Breathing out

I feel fresh

Breathing in

I see myself as space

Breathing out

I feel free

Breathing in

I see myself as a mountain

Breathing out

I feel grounded

Breathing in

I see myself as still water

Breathing out

I reflect things as they are

You may wish to take 8 stones and move each of them to the right with each in breath and out breath and then back again as you repeat.

A few notes for this mindfulness meditation:

  • Keep your eyes closed for the duration of this meditation
  • Move at your own pace – no rush!
  • Visualize yourself as each verse – for example for still water allow the image of still water to come to mind. If a picture of an elephant comes up, no worries! Simply giggle and move on to the next verse.
  • Sit in a comfortable posture that represents dignity.
