How is meditation practiced?

Meditation is a time-honored method of letting go of the mind. Though there are many ways to meditate, the one common factor for all methods is relaxation and concentration on a single theme for a certain length of time. When the mind wanders, it is gently but firmly brought back to the area of focus. Gradually, the practitioner is able to transcend the conscious mind and be in meditation.
