Meditation has been defined as:
“self regulation of attention, in the service of self-inquiry, in the here and now.”
-Maison, Werheimer, & Kabat-Zinn (1999)
The various techniques of meditation can be classified according to their focus. Some focus on the field or background perception and experience, often referred to as “mindfulness”; others focus on a preselected specific object, and are called “concentrative” meditation.
In mindfulness meditation, the meditator sits comfortably and silently, centering attention by focusing awareness on an object or process (such as the breath; a sound, such as a mantra, koan or riddle-like question; a visualization; or an exercise).
