Keep It Simple: How to Meditate, Really

Welcome to week two of my three part May Meditation Series!  I hope you enjoyed last week’s video on alternate nostril breathing, and that in practicing that gloriously calming technique, you’re ready to take it to the next level with a seated breath meditation.


I won’t go into too many details here as this video is a little on the longer side (8.5 minutes, I guess I was feeling chatty that day!).  But here is a preview of what you will receive when you watch it:


  • The issues I had with meditation when I first began practicing.
  • The truth about the “right” way to meditate.
  • Advice on how to approach it when you’re first starting out.
  • Clear instructions on doing a seated breath meditation, taken from the Anapanasati method I learned in Thailand, plus three useful tips for keeping your mind focused in silence.
  • How to get through those moments when the mind becomes fixated on a distracting thought or intense emotion.
  • A guided meditation to get you started before you try it on your own.


Remember, taking time to sit in silence, listen, and breathe is a wonderful gift you can give yourself, and all those with whom you share your life.  Start small, be patient, and keep it simple.


Take action now:

1)    Give it a try and report your insights below.

2)    Share this video with 3 people you feel could use a moment of peace in their lives.

Best wishes and lots of love,

  1. Hi Sasha! I missed part 1 of your meditation series, but I just listened to part two. First of all, I want to say that it’s obvious that you meditate because you come across as peaceful and centered. I felt more relaxed just by listening to you! I also liked the meditation – it was very simple. I’ve been wanting to develop a daily meditation practice for a long time, but I’ve struggled with it. Thank you for sharing this! Celeste:)


  2. These are great reference videos for my students. Thank you. By the end of May, there will be a library of info for them.
