Ram Dass leads a 28-minute Vipassana meditation on bringing our mind to one point through the breath. This process must be done gently, the mind must remain soft, subtle, buoying and light.

As your mind begins to concentrate, emotions will rise to the surface – greed, lust, doubt, anger, agitation… just notice them, don’t feed them or judge them – then gently return to the breath.

We keep the awareness gently riding on the breath, noting sensations rising and then passing away, like leaves floating down the stream.
