Gratitude for Life through Mindfulness of Death, with Sean Fargo
Play • 25 min

Being alive is a miraculous gift that most of us take for granted far too often. What would change for us, and how might we live, if we spent just a few minutes every day remembering that each breath could be our last? 

In this episode, Mindfulness Exercises founder, Sean Fargo, shares how meditating on the inevitability of loss can illuminate the preciousness of life. Teachers and practitioners alike will benefit from the reminder that each and every breath is worthy of our gratitude and awe. 

Please remember that mindfulness practice is not a replacement for therapy. Listen with care and self-compassion and practice within your window of tolerance. If this, or any other episode, triggers overwhelming, uncomfortable feelings, contact your healthcare provider.
