Question by : What type of meditation do you recommend?
I’ve been doing breathing meditation for 15 – 30 mins everyday, and I find it helpful. I tried to go on Buddhist websites, but in other types of meditation they mention concepts like rebirth, which I find hard to believe. Is there any other type of meditation for a secular person, which is not faith-based?

    One I am reminded of – Mindfulness or insight meditation. You can look it up.

    Zen meditation. http://www.freemeditations.com/zen_meditation.html is one example; the general http://www.freemeditations.com site has many styles and emphases, not all religious.

    Learn to play a musical instrument well.
    Learn to do any form of exquisite artwork, such as painting, carving or sculpting
    Learn to be a championship archer or golfer or marshal artist
    Any more or less solitary occupation that focuses the mind deeply is a form of meditation.

    Anapana meditation is not faith-based. Your breathing meditation is a form of anapana meditation, although I don’t know if you are doing it right.

    Regarding your disbelief in rebirth, you need to differentiate between knowing and believing. Belief is just belief. They are just pieces of a puzzle and can’t be held firm as true. Belief tends to change as new information is received. Our mind is too limited to ponder about the life beyond death. Don’t waste your time on whether there is rebirth or no rebirth. Because once you have set your mind to disbelief, nobody can convince you otherwise.
