I said yes.

When I first started, sometimes sensei would have us meditate for a minute or two after class, during line-up/bow-out/whatever. I was curious, so I did a lot of research on meditation. Which led to reading a lot about Buddhism.
Hi Karen, I hope in your research you found that meditation is not just in Eastern Religion/Philosophy. There is a tradition of meditation in the Western Religions as well. While not as pop culture as Eastern meditation it can be just as effective.
