I've been meditating since I first got involved with yoga and zen as a young teenager. I still sit and am a zen Buddhist, however my main sitting practice and my budo practice have merged. I think they are the same thing when practiced with focused mind.

As I said in my earlier post, I have seen no real teachers of aikido who spend time during class on meditation. Does anyone know of anyone who does this?

I have heard of a couple of people who included a half hour of "meditation" in their hour class on aikido, but I suspect it was really meant to take up time because I know the depth of their aikido training.
