Watch Martine Batchelor: Meditation on the Breath

This week Martine Batchelor begins her four-week Tricycle Retreat, "Break Your Addictive Patterns." In her Week 1 teaching—a clip of which is posted below—she emphasizes meditation on the breath as a way to help us deal with our difficult habits, which can cause grief to ourselves and others.

She gives very clear meditation instructions in her 20-minute video, with an emphasis on freeing us from the well-worn channels of thought we normally inhabit, and moving on to a freer more creative space.

You can read meditation instructions from her book Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits here.

Watch the full 20-minute video here, or sample the two-minute clip above.

Weeks 2, 3, and 4 of this retreat are available to Tricycle Community Sustaining Members.
