It began when Linda, Marcia and I were doing our Reiki share in the midst of the fires on the west coast.  The smoke was endangering the health of Linda and me.  Marcia, in Ohio, started to feel guilty because she could breathe.  What can we do?  What if those who can breathe do so with intention for those who cannot?  I can support you and you can support me, no matter the reason, environmental or systemic racism. Our breath becomes a life raft across time and space.

You can use a 108 bead mala to pace yourself if desired. The  number 108  is sacred. It's the number of wholeness.  It's the number six chai representing the eternal life of the soul.  Read slowly and breathe with each one. Pause to hear and feel the words.   Read to someone else and watch their breathing slow as you read.  If you grok the idea of this practice, you can create your own I Breathe With You.  

 Grok – Hindu word for intuit or understand. I love this word.  Sounds like a bird talking.
