In MIDL Mindfulness Training 9/52 you begin mindfulness of breathing by observing the breath as its flows autonomously through your body. Your ability to observe breathing free from control was refined in the previous training. Your focus now should be on developing the strength of your mindfulness and concentration. To do this it is not important to place your attention in any one location but rather to be clearly aware of the experience of breathing as a flow of sensations within your body. To aid in this you use basic labels such as "in" "out" and "wandering" in order to focus your attention. Questions & Answers
Streamed talk by Stephen Procter in Feb 2021 on how to introduce mindfulness of your breathing in MIDL Mindfulness Meditation.
In MIDL Mindfulness Training 10/52 you develop your skill in mindfulness of breathing by becoming aware of whole length of each breath from its beginning, to its middle and end. This is done by intentionally bringing your awareness towards the beginning of each in-breath and the beginning of each out-breath. This naturally develops a clear perception of the length of each breath allowing you to 'rub' awareness along the breaths length creating the basis for the development of one-pointed concentration and the temporary suppression of the five hindrances to meditation.

In MIDL Mindfulness Training 11/52 you change your perception from mindfulness of the breath as it draws in and out, to the expansion & deflation of your whole body as it responds to breathing. This is a necessary transition from the development of one-pointed concentration to momentary concentration in order to open to the experience of your six senses to develop Wisdom. This transition is initially made by increasing awareness of your whole body as it responds to breathing by gradually expanding your awareness of the experience breathing within it.
