I do some guided imagery to reduce stress and generally relax... related to meditation.

I think exercise can also be meditative.

Is not tai chi a form of meditation of practiced properly? Used to do a kind of meditation where you concentrate on the world without and your links to it, your senses and sensations, then gradually shutting them down yet never losing the link at a subconcious level. Part of a "practical philosophy" course that was equal parts bunkum and common sense.

I did a bit of tai chi too... Should get back to that. It was excellent for my balance. I think it has meditative elements from focusing on "chi" and channeling it.

I stumbled across this set of pictures to remind me never to cause a group of women to become pissed off.  https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/06/28/female-kurdish-sniper-laughs-at-isis-fighter-after-a-bullet-misss-her-head-by-inches-syria/23006746/#slide=5697288#fullscreen

I watched a documentary recently about that battalion of women. Incredible people.
