Songs / Breathing In, Breathing Out

This classic Plum Village song helps us to enjoy our breathing. When you breathe and visualize a flower, a dewdrop, a mountain, Mother Earth and their qualities like freshness, solidity, spaciousness, you also nourish those elements inside of you.

Breathing in, breathing out


Breathing in, breathing out

Breathing in, breathing out

I am blooming as a flower

I am fresh as the dew

I am solid as a mountain

I am firm as the earth

I am free.

Breathing in, breathing out

Breathing in, breathing out

I am water reflecting

What is real, what is true

And I feel there is space

Deep inside of me

I am free, I am free, I am free.
