1. What is meditation, and what is it intended to accomplish?
2. What are the two general categories of meditation? Please describe.
3. What are the effects of meditation?
Research techniques of meditation and find one that appeals to you. Try it for three days, twice a day if possible. Write down how you are feeling before you meditate (bored, anxious, restless, worried, tired, etc.). Then write down how you felt after at least fifteen minutes of meditation. Did you notice, over the three-day period, any changes that were immediate? Any changes that were felt sometime afterward? What did you experience, and what is your evaluation of that experience? Have you ever tried to meditate before? How was this different, if at all?
