This song was taught by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Shared by class member Ann Patty.
Thich Nhat Hanh is the founder of Plum Village and for years offered retreats and teachings worldwide on engaged Buddhism and the art of mindful living. In 2014, just after his 89th birthday, he suffered a stroke. After that, he returned to Vietnam for the first time in many decades, where he still breathes.
Breathing in, Breathing out Breathing in, Breathing out I am blooming, as a flower I am fresh, as the dew I am solid, as a mountain I am firm, as the earth I am free, I am free I am free, I am free Breathing in, Breathing out Breathing in, Breathing out I am water, reflecting, what is pure, what is true, and I feel, the space, deep inside of me I am free, I am free I am free, I am free.
Thank you for singing this in class for us Ann!!
