A message from our guest composer, Vanessa: 'I wrote this chant a few months ago while I was out walking with my baby daughter. I was walking in our local park and the wind was blowing and there were beautiful clouds in the sky and suddenly I was so aware of the sweetness of the moment. There's something so wonderful about spending time with a baby in that they are completely absorbed in what is right before them- they are so fully in the present moment. How delightful it is to stop and realize that your life is right here, right now, with this breath. I want to practice this kind of presence.'
