      G: let's face it everyone has to breathe .... so this is one
      practice that may be taken anywhere ... it can help to center -
      focus - relax and release eventually one may still enough to start
      to witness ... all from simply becoming aware of the breath and
      letting it relax enough to come from the diaphragm (the stomach
      will move) rather than the chest....
