i practice what i think is called samadhi meditation, or also known as jhana i think
my main focus is developing concentration, it has taken me alot of practice, but holding a completely empty mind and drifting through the jhana's is just great, one of my favourite things to do! :D
i'd like to talking about the meditation way in Thailand
them have been studied in the temple.Really the way not fix the style
if who like the anyway ..that Breath with input&out...."สติปัฐฐาน 4"

I highly recommend you to read "Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha" by Daniel Ingram.
You can either buy it as a hard copy or download for free as a .pdf here - http://www.interactivebuddha.com/mctb.shtml

To me, "practice" and "meditation" are synonymous... because if I'm doing it in a meditative state, then it's doing what it's supposed to do as a practice!
My main practices right now are:
1. EFT (meditating on emotions, clearing them with meridian stimulation)
2. Kundalini yoga. There are hundreds of structured meditations to choose from from this tradition, most involving chanting mantras and holding a mudra for 11 minutes. These are super powerful and have changed my life!
3. Tian Gong style of Qi Gong. Meditative slow prayerful movement.
4. Microcosmic Orbit. Breathing up the back channel in the spine, breathing down the front. I'm new to this and need guidance, so if anyone here is experienced, let me know!
Vipassana meditation has always been less efficient for me in terms of recalibrating... maybe because I have not practiced much on my own outside of retreats, so when I start, my mind ends up just wandering. Start me on a mantra though, and I'm moving energy right away...
When we use sound with our voice allowing the sound of Om to come through this at times will clear the mind.
Bringing this sound with the breath, a steady slow breath. Breathing in through the nose and breathing out Om. This we use to go deeper.~
Most all prayer and meditation can be done anywhere doing anything just focus.
