There are two main reasons why people are drawn to meditation: spirituality and health.
While Eastern Cultures have seen the benefits of meditation for eons, the West is now beginning to hear of the benefits as well. Many Doctors and other scientific researchers are beginning to release studies on the health benefits of meditation on our contemporary culture. While it still hasn't found a foothold in most Western homes it is starting to become more and more main stream as Doctors prescribe the benefits to more and more patients. You can even find classes on different types of meditation or meditation practices in many senior housing centers and Adult Education classes.

If you are anything like me your idea of meditation was the little monk guy sitting in one position for hours upon hours. He speaks rarely and when he does it does so in confusing phrases that takes forever to understand. Yep, that was my idea of meditation and even though I got bits and pieces from some of my teachers on how to do it differently it still took me a while to catch on.
