Begin by sitting cross-legged or on your heels, and rest your palms on your knees. Facing your palms up helps you receive energy while facing the palms down allows a more grounding feeling. Take a deep breath in through the nose, hold it at the top, and then let it go, breathing out the mouth. Take three breaths this way, then begin a steady breath in and out of the nose.
