With Each & Every Breath: A Guide to Meditation. A new breath meditation manual by Thanissaro Bhikkhu drawing on two sources: the Buddha’s own set of instructions on how to use the breath in training the mind, and Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo’s method of breath meditation — which builds on the Buddha’s instructions, explaining in detail many of the points that the Buddha left in condensed form. A page has been added to this site with download links to all of the .mp3 dhammatalks referenced in this manual: With Each & Every Breath audio files.
Brian Ruhe is a former monk and has taught Buddhism and meditation for 17 years. He is a follower of Ajahn Sona at www.birken.ca in the Theravada Forest tradition, and the author of two Buddhist books, guided meditation CDs and 200+ You Tube videos at: www.youtube.com/user/BrianRuhe .
Please help make this ongoing group a success by joining us or passing this invitation on to your friends. This group is best for people who have taken one of my courses first, or have meditation experience but beginners can come if they like.
