Theme #5. Optimal Meditation Enhancement tm
The ALL- IN-ONE Optimal Breathing Mastery Kit plus the below customized product options.
TABLET/IPAD/SMARTPHONE friendly for those with no disk drives.
Meditation is one way to achieve greater calm and better personal focus and balance. However, this powerful exercise is complimented by deep breathing practices, which, if not done correctly can reduce this activity to one of futility. The Meditation Enhancement theme will provide you with the breath training and breathing techniques to achieve effortless deep breathing and allow you to go enter deeper therapeutic zones as you meditate.
“Deeper meditation cannot be expressed by language for as soon as we verbalize or conceptualize experiences, they become solidified and awareness stops.” Tartang Tulku
“Meditation is simple. We complicate it” J. Krishnamurti
Identical to Deepest Calm #200 with the actual exercises having much less emphasis on handling anxiety.

THE WOLVES WITHIN
An old grandfather said to his grandson who came in to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, “Let me tell you a story:”
“I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those who have taken so much with no sorrow for what they do; but hate wears you down and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking a poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times.”
He continued, “It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But…the other wolf… Ah!
The littlest thing will send him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all of the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.”
“Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”
The boy looked intently into his grandfather’s eyes and asked, “Which one wins, Grandfather?”
The grandfather smiled and quietly said, “The one I feed.”
UNDERSTANDING INTERNAL PEACE
I facilitated a breathing/stress management workshop at a county jail in California and integrated my world class collection of Himalayan “singing bowls” (see Breathing Exercise1 ) . Towards the end of the workshop an inmate told me that he felt very much at peace. It was foreign to him, and he wanted to understand more about the significance of how he felt. I told him that if he felt at peace he would naturally choose activities and strategies that stemmed from or supported that experience. If he felt anxiety, fear and or agitation he might well choose activities and responses that more resembled anger and defensiveness, and that the choice was his. He seemed much relieved and with an emphatic but quiet “thank you”, he smiled and quietly sat down.
Dear Mike: Just a quick note to let you know that after one week on your program, I have stopped taking my High Blood Pressure medications! Your program seemed to “click” with me. I am easily breathing at 3.5 breaths per minute. When I started I was breathing 12 times per minute. Thanks for your help and have a great day, Skip W
I’ve been making a good effort at breathing correctly and doing your exercises. I went to donate blood at the Red Cross and she asked me if I was an athlete (I’m healthy but not super athletic). She told me that my blood pressure was at an athletic low. Mary W.
I want to thank you for a great dvd and some great exercises. I just started working with your dvd’s and I just love the breath you get at the reflex. Our fight or flight system does so much damage to us emotionally, physically, spiritually, etc and when you breath right you
have better control over when it kicks in and you can minimize the suffering involved with the stress chemicals. It is important of course but it takes over way too much in our world. We suffer so much due to our survival instincts that want to keep us alive and send the stress chemicals
running through our system and send off the alarms bells for even the simplest stuff. The more we learn how to operate our machine (the body) the happier and healthier we will be. The problem with life on planet earth is we are not given instructions manuals on how to operate what we have be given so we learn by following others who are most often not doing things optimally. I am grateful to have found your website and dvd.
Thanks so much. I look forward to practicing more of your routines and take more of my life back from the Fight or Flight mechanism. Roy K.
Things are going well, blood pressure has already started to fall, and I can notice two things right now: greater volume of air, and ease of breathing…..I’ve worn the BVS for the last three days (during waking hours, 5 am to about 7 or 8 pm) but I really haven’t been able to wear it at night, that is very difficult for me…..but I will keep trying. I use a soft undergarment, and I don’t let it restrict me too much, but I’m used to wearing nothing but underwear to bed, with no covers, and nothing to restrict my movements……Sam M.
Thx for the e-mail. I will take a look later today. My wife and I spent the week before Christmas at the Deepak Chopra Wellness Center in La Jolla. Take away the “wrapping” and its basically spending time with ones self daily breathing properly (meditation). The world is wonderfully simply if we let it be. And now back to the rat race and 62 un-opened e-mails. May God continue to bless the essential work you do. Best regards, Dan York
