Breathing Through the Whole Body: The Culminating Instruction With Will Johnson

Are you looking to deepen your meditation practice through the breath? The Buddha taught instructions for utilizing the breath as a tool for transformation, offering an accessible and practical method that you can use day-to-day.

In this free hour-long online meditation workshop, Buddhist teacher and author Will Johnson will guide you through the Buddha’s opening instructions in the Satipatthana Sutta to “remain aware of breath as you breathe in and out” onto his culminating instruction to “breathe through the whole body.”

Learning how to breathe through your whole body, rather than simply remaining aware of its passage, transforms your meditation into a potent somatic practice of awakening the body and liberating the breath.

Will Johnson is a teacher of sitting meditation and the author of fifteen books about the role of the body in spiritual practices. His teachings on sitting with ease, vibrancy, and grace are available in the Tricycle Online Course, The Posture of Meditation. Learn more about his offerings at
