My question is, i guess...Is there any real benefits that can be gained from sitting meditation when training Tai Chi?
I know that the calming part of meditation would exist in this practice, but would it be of more benefit than moving meditation that would be doubling as exercise as well? Maybe it's because i have a martial arts background, but i can't help thinking it would be time wasted when you have to fit in other forms and Chi Kungs of the system into your daily practice. Quieting the mind can be done anywhere and during most activities, so my head tells me that setting aside time to do sitting meditation would have minimal advantage unless you have a particularly stressful lifestyle. Isn't a walk in the park or some Zhan Zhuang better for your Tai Chi than just sitting?
Thanks in advance for any response...Sean.
