The other day we watched a movie regarding meditation. A scientist decided that she wanted to gain a better understanding of what meditation is and what is does for people. She took a trip to Nepal and ended up learning a mediation practice that generally focuses on the motion of breathing in and out. If a thought pops into your head you need to acknowledge it and then let it go. This is a practice of being mindful. She then learned of some other meditation techniques. These techniques ranged from Transcendental Meditation to Mantra meditation. There are a lot of different ways that a person can meditate. Everybody is unique and this means that different forms of meditation fit people differently. There is no one right way to meditate.
