MEDITATION

The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease many health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression and anxiety.

History

The history of meditation is intimately bound up with the religious context within which it was practiced.  Some of the earliest references to meditation are found in the Hindu Vedas of Nepal and India.

Over the past 20 years, Mindfulness and mindfulness-based programs have become increasingly important to Westerners and in the Western medical and psychological community as a means of helping people, whether they be clinically sick or healthy
