In this new video, yogi and Buddhist teacher Michael Stone explains how mindfulness practice develops into concentration.
“When you train yourself to keep coming back, you start to not drift off so far. You start staying closer to the breathing. You become intimate with the breath. There’s no you anymore that’s breathing. There’s just breathing.”
