Welcome back for the fourth and final week of Meditation Month, our annual challenge to sit all 31 days of March with Insight meditation teacher and writer Sebene Selassie.

This week, Sebene leads a guided meditation that incorporates the Buddhas teachings on all four elements and shows us how these teachings can help us strengthen and broaden our practice on and off the cushion. Focusing first on the element of air, Sebene reminds us of our interconnectedness with all beings. The breath is a very popular object of meditation, and we can use it to tap into the sense of not-self and connect with others.

We can experience the element of air as an ephemeral reality that not only sustains us moment-to-moment, but also connects us through time and space to all living creatures.

Reflecting on these last four weeks, Sebene invites us to take what weve learned about earth, water, fire, and air and use this knowledge to let go and find freedom in any moment.
