How To Begin Meditation

Jack Kornfield is one of the foremost meditation teachers in America. Here he teaches us how to begin meditation.

He trained as a monk in the Thai Forrest tradition and founded the Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Northern California.

Even though he is one of the most popular teachers his humility, kindness, and compassion are evident when you listen to him or see him in person.

In this short video, Jack teaches you how to begin meditation. He says, “We begin in the most universal way by becoming aware of our breath.”


When you watched the video, did you get a sense of humility in his presentation?

When you tried to set quietly and watch your breath, were you able to stay in the present moment?

Did you find yourself a little way from your body?
