Awake & Evolve: Cycle 2 – Mind’s Eye Meditation

The second cycle of Awake & Evolve workouts focuses on using the breath, building upper body stamina, and fostering a habit of regular meditation.

“Meditation is going beyond the mind. It has nothing to do with the mind — except going beyond it. It is not a faculty of the mind, it is transcendental to mind. When you can see without the mind in between you and existence, you are in meditation. It is not concentration. It is utterly silent. It is not focusing… it is absolutely unfocused awareness”. 


Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can perform this meditation.

Close your eyes and begin to relax your body and breath.

Take 6 deep breaths in and out through your nose.

Focus all of your attention on counting your breath.

Repeat this practice for 6 rounds of counting 6 deep breaths.

Try not to worry if you lose count or focus, just keep coming back to your breath.

Clear your mind of all internal and external thoughts, focusing only on counting each breath as you inhale and exhale.

Keep focusing on lengthening each breath. Let each breath flow in slower, deeper, and longer.

Now count 20 deep breaths, then stay as long as you wish in the meditation.
