Re: medetation

I'm really enjoying the book "The Intuitive Body - Discovering the Wisdom of Conscious Embodiment and Aikido" by Wendy Palmer. It includes some very clear instructions for at least one kind of meditation, and a lot of other interesting good stuff to think about.

There are lots of kinds of "meditation" so hunt around until you find what works for you.

You might check the iTunes store for podcasts or other recordings of guided meditations, too.

Re: Meditation

Go to the library there on Electric (by the Red Train Car off Main Street) and check out the books and tapes/CDs on meditation. They can get you any that are in the OC system. Its free and will get you started.

The go down to Sweet Jills or Cinnamon Productions, get a roll and a coffee, walk out on the peer, and tell the ocean I said hello.

find a nice, quiet place. standing, sit down, or lay down whichever comfortable to you. close your eyes. breath slowly by expanding and contracting your stomach. there is a small book, systema, "let every breath". a chapter in that book talk about tension and relax, methink chapter 8. there is a bunch of exercise sequences, you can use. methink, it based on the old iron shirt qigong. you can meditate and work on building a connected body at the same time which will help your aikido in the long run.

or stand in the "hug the tree pose" of taichi. have someone pushes lightly to your chest, back, left and right shoulders, push down slightly on your shoulders, lift you up lightly. your job is to stay in one place. find the spot where you are centered and stay there for 30 minutes.

or shave your head, wear a yellow robe (brown is ok too, but no pink or lavender or zebra stripes), use a wooden clacker to keep the beat, chant incoherently for hours on end and drive the people in your household insane.

Re: Meditation

My favorite place to meditate is on my horses back out in the woods or some quiet place in the woods surrounding the farm. There is something about being out in nature and away from the rest of the world that is just perfect for letting go and spending a little time in meditation.
