Breathing Room

I recommend that we set up a small room in our homes and call it a "breathing room," where we can be alone and practice just breathing and smiling. You may want to have a small bell, a few cushions, and perhaps a vase of flowers. Every time you feel upset, go to that room, open the door slowly, sit down, invite the bell to sound, and begin to breathe. I believe that every home should have one room for breathing. Simple practices like conscious breathing and smiling are very important. They can change our civilization.

The practice of peace and reconciliations is one of the most vital and artistic of all human actions.
