This 17-minute guided practice includes breathing techniques, visualizations of the ocean, and an introduction to the phrase SO HAM. SO HAM comes from the Sanskrit language and can be translated "I am that." It is a powerful mantra (a meaningful phrase that one repeats to aid concentration and focus while meditating.) The SO HAM mantra is called the mantra of the breath because it can be heard within each cycle of breath (inhale/exhale.)
