I am a third year undergraduate student in Liverpool studying Applied Psychology. I found meditation by accident about six years ago when I began practising Aikido. I have since immersed myself in both the theoretical and practical aspects of meditation through traditional forms at my dojo and local Buddhist Centre. Further, I also investigate the more modern health care aspects in the form of the Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) More
I spend twice a week engaged in Zen meditation for forty minutes at a time. I practice Aikido at least once a week for two hours which in its purest form is considered Zen in movement. I attend my local Buddhist temple once a month for practice. I am currently engaged with understanding Fear, Love and Attachment. I have been studying these aspects for some time but find them extremely challenging. Intellectually they are not necessarily difficult concepts but understanding on a spiritual and practical level still eludes me. Much like other forms of faith I try to dedicate one day a week to complete mindfulness engaging as fully as I am capable with each and every aspect of the day from waking, brushing my teeth to walking and interactions with others.
