Meditation

Meditation refers to any of a family of practices in which the practitioner trains his or her mind or self-induces a mode of consciousness in order to realize some benefit.

Meditation is generally an internal, personal practice and most often done without any external involvement, except perhaps prayer beads to count prayers. Meditation often involves invoking or cultivating a feeling or internal state, such as compassion, or attending to a specific focal point.  The term can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state.

There are dozens or more of specific styles of meditation practice.  People may mean different things when they use the word, 'meditation'.  Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions, especially in monastic settings.

Try it - even if you just take 5 minutes each day to sit quietly, light a few candles and be at one with the world!
