Once thought of by Westerners as some kind of mystical ritual of Eastern
cultures, meditation is now accepted as a mainstream technique for relaxation,
increased awareness, mental focus, and a sense of calm and peace. During
meditation, concentration is directed to a sound, a word, an image, or one's
breath to create a tranquil state of clarity.
