Chap T of C
Meditation is a form of deep concentration in which the mind is focused on a single thing (in some varieties) or emptied of thought (in others). This sounds easy but is very hard for some beginners. When a state of meditative calm is attained, people often experience profound feelings of peacefulness or spiritual renewal. Researchers have attempted to study meditation, with mixed results. The state of the body is much like that of a light sleep, but even beginning meditators often report varied and profound experiences.
