Breathing meditation

The easiest way to meditate and the way most of us in the martial arts first practice meditation is by focusing on one's own breathing. Check out this little introduction to breathing meditation. For beginners but also a nice refresher.

"Generally, the purpose of breathing meditation is to calm the mind and develop inner peace."

If you have an interest in the relationship of martial arts to meditation, I can recommend an article from this month's Empirical Magazine that shed some light on it. There are some highlights of it up on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4IMUFPTr43I) but the full text was really informative. It went into the relationship of Islam to Muhammad Ali's fighting, monks' practice of kung fu and some other interesting things.
